Securing CentralWire

You're strongly advised to use TLS/SSL for all the connections below (unless the two end sides run on the same host):

You (browser) <---> web container +----> database server
                                  +----> LDAP server

The reasons are:

  • You will send your own password to CentralWire in the web container.
  • CentralWire will send your password to the LDAP server to authenticate you.
  • CentralWire will obtain the password of the shell account from the database.

Below are some HOWTOs that may help:
