Ability to Turn Off Certificate Authentication by Default

Postby keesor » Tue Oct 23, 2012 12:08 pm

We are a Federal Agency, and are having to roll out smart card login for all users. Whenever the user is logged into their PC with a smartcard and SSL is enabled in the LDAP Administrator, it prompts the user to select a certificate from the smart card.

It appears to be trying to do certificate authentication to the directory by default, instead of just creating a regular SSL tunnel. You can click cancel and it will connect via SSL without certificate authentication, however a large percentage of the user community is not technical, and we are getting a lot of calls about the prompt for a certificate.

We are requesting that there be a way to disable certificate authentication and use a regular SSL tunnel by default, so that the users don't get confused by being prompted for a certificate.

Thank you,
keesor
