Activate LDAP/AD authentication




I would like to know how to configure and activate Active Directory/LDAP authentication with OpenVAS 9. Some working documentations or feedbacks are welcome, thanks.




you can find the relevant documentation on how to configure LDAP/AD authentication in the following documentation:


Thanks for the information. I can see in the documentation that LDAP with SSL/TLS is required to make it work, so this approach is not an option for me. Therefore, I don’t know if it is possible to completely disable user auth with OpenVAS and use Apache auth for example to manage it.


You may implement a reverse proxy, that need to supply the correct data to the GSA.


I have the same question above.

Hello gmourani,

was this already resolved?
