Virtual Directory Server: Learning the Basics By Optimal IdM

  1. 1. Learning the Basics
  2. 2. What is a Virtual Directory? A virtual directory is a software layer thatdelivers a single access point for efficientidentity management applications as well asservice platforms
  3. 3. Functions of VDS works as a high-performance, lightweightabstraction layer residing between clientapplications and contrasting types ofidentity-data directory repositories e.g.:standard and proprietary directories, webservices, applications and databases
  4. 4. More… receives queries and directs them to theappropriate data sources by abstracting andvirtualizing data consolidates data stored in a distributedenvironment
  5. 5. Advantages for your Company Enable faster deployment because users do not need toadd and sync additional application-specific datasources Deliver high availability of data sources LDAP Proxy LDAP Firewall
  6. 6. LDAP PROXY A solution which provides enhancedsecurity, scalability, and directoryaccess control to an existing directoryinfrastructure
  7. 7. LDAP FIREWALL A prevention program whichprovides added security and allowscompanies to restrict certain parts oftheir directory infrastructure andblock unwanted users Prevents DoS
  8. 8. Denial-of-Service (DoS) Attacks Attempt to prevent legitimate users from accessinginformation or services Most obvious type happens when an attacker “floods”a network with information A server can only process a certain number of requestsat once, so if an attacker overloads the server withrequests, it ‘s incapable of processing your request
