Hello @rohitcts ,

 

All these methods are available in LDAP authentication.

Here are the definitions.

  • Encrypted password ( md5 )
    Default mode.
  • Plain text password + SSL ( TLS )
    The entire authentication procedure (password included) is encrypted. The secure port 636 must not be used in this mode: Adobe Campaign automatically switches to secure mode.
    When you use this authentication mode, in Linux, the certificate is verified by an openLDAP client library. We recommend using a valid SSL certificate so that the authentication procedure is encrypted. Otherwise, information will be in plain text.
    The certificate is also verified in Windows.
  • Windows NT LAN Manager ( NTLM )
    Proprietary Windows authentication. The Unique identifier is used for the domain name only.
  • Distributed Password Authentication ( DPA )
    Proprietary Windows authentication. The Unique identifier is used for the domain name only (domain.com).
  • Plain text password
    No encryption (for use in test phases only).

For OpenLDAP, I beileve only Plain text is available.
