The LdapClientUseTls property specifies whether TLS protection is enabled. Teradata strongly recommends TLS protection when you use simple binds, including service binds.

This property must be set to yes to enable use of advanced TLS capabilities, such as certificate chain verification or mutual authentication.

Valid Settings

Setting Description
no (default) TLS protection is not enabled.
yes TLS protection is enabled.

Editing Guidelines

  • To set a value, you must manually add this property to the TDGSS configuration file for the needed mechanisms. See Editing Configuration Files.
  • Set the LdapClientUseTls property to yes to protect passwords on systems that use simple binds, including service binds. For information on binding, see LDAP Binding Options.
  • If you decide to use TLS protection, edit this property for all mechanisms that have the AuthorizationSupported property set to yes.
  • Edit this property on the database.

For detailed procedures on configuring TLS options, see Using TLS with a Directory Server.
