in a typical network with 500 workstations. I configured my FG 401F to work with my LDAP for authentication and at the same time explored the FSSO functionality while LDAP is still present.
Now, if the workstation will authenticate which method it will use LDAP or FSSO? Which method will take precedence first?
Go to Solution.
FSSO can't replace LDAP. It's used as passive way of authentication to apply policies based on groups without requesting user's credentials again. More information can be found here: https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortigate/7.4.1/administration-guide/450337/fsso

- LDAP is an active authentication method, so users will need to enter the credentials to authenticate to Firewall, while FSSO is a passive authentication method.
- If it is not wanted that the users enter credentials to get resource access, it is suggested to use FSSO method (passive authentication).
- With LDAP authentication only, it is more logical to users enter credentials to get resource access.
So it all depends, where FSSO or LDAP authentication to be placed in Firewall.
