Fortigate autenticación LDAP,

Who knows what special characters that can't be used in passwords to authenticate to LDAP with a Fortigate 90D version V5.0.

Characters such as ñ cannot be used, which characters can fail authentication.

Hi Javier

According to Microsoft:

'-!"#$%&()*,./:;?@[]^_`{|}~+<=>

Hi Aek

 

I agree with Microsoft's authentication, but Fortigate when authenticating LDAP has some exception to special characters

Hi Javier

In my lab I did the following:

  • Created LDAP user "test"
  • Set the password of "test" user to '-!"#$%&()*,./:;?@[]^_`{|}~+<=>
  • Then on FortiGate I went to User & Device > LDAP Servers
  • Edited my LDAP server
  • Clicked on Test User Credentials button
  • Entered user "test" and password '-!"#$%&()*,./:;?@[]^_`{|}~+<=>
  • Clicked Test button, and the test was successful

That means both my LDAP and FG accept password with all these special characters: '-!"#$%&()*,./:;?@[]^_`{|}~+<=>
