Overview

The MyPass Connector for eDirectory is used by the MyPass Password Manager Sync Server to reset passwords for eDirectory LDAP accounts. The connector is installed along with the FastPass Password Manager Server installation but licensed individually and on per user basis.

Password Manager supports easy integration into multiple eDirectory user repositories from a single implementation. The configuration is done from the Password Manager Administration Client and implemented as part of the Password Manager Backend Server. The communication to the eDirectory is done from the Password Manager Gateway Server. The integration is implemented using TCP communication. Encryption must be used through either SSL or TLS.
