Moving secrets from Ldap Identity provider XML to Hashicorp vault (secrets management system)

Avatar

Level 2

We are using LdapIdentityProvider.xml to connect to our organization's Ldap interface for the login functionality in AEM.

As a security measure, We want to move the password information to 'vault secrets management system'. We have a custom service , which we use to read vault secrets.

Could anyone please help with a way to extend AEM Ldap service (not sure of the exact name of service) , so that we can add our custom code to read Ldap secret from vault ?

Hi @sarthakuiit 

 

To achieve this

  1. Create a Vault Configuration

  2. Update LDAP Identity Provider Configuration

    Modify the LdapIdentityProvider.xml configuration to use placeholders for the LDAP credentials, which will be replaced at runtime. 

  3. Create a Custom OSGi Service

  4. Reference Custom Service in LDAP Identity Provider

    1. Modify the LDAP Identity Provider code to reference your custom service for retrieving the LDAP password.

  5. Update Component and Service References:

Hope this helps!

 

Thanks,
