If your network uses a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) or Active Directory authentication (AD) server, your LDAP domain users can use the LDAP or AD authentication service to be authenticated in the Barracuda Web Security Gateway system. The Barracuda Web Security Gateway can also enable you to look up users by organizational units you have defined on your LDAP server when creating exceptions to block/accept policy.
To enable LDAP user authentication, from the USERS/GROUPS > Authentication page, in the LDAP tab, provide information about connecting to the LDAP server, binding to the LDAP server, encryption type and LDAP attributes. Click the Help button on the page for detailed steps.
To configure proxy authentication through LDAP for remote users such as students with Chromebooks, and other off-network users, see How to Configure Proxy Authentication.
