Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory integration and Single Sign-on (SSO) are two separate, distinct, and often confusing technologies for external authentication and authorization of user access to a Teradata system. Properly used, these technologies play an important role in the effective integration of Teradata systems with corporate security processes and infrastructure.

This session discusses the key differences between these two features and describes in detail the capabilities, functionality, and benefits provided by each. We provide an overview of the steps required to configure the Teradata Generic Security Services subsystem properties to work with an LDAP infrastructure and we discuss the steps required for configuration of the Kerberos subsystem to support SSO.

Note: This was a 2009 Partners Conference presentation, updated in 2012 and again in Q4 2015.
