Hi Experts,

Does anyone have documentation to implement LDAP over Postgresql 14.

I have a requirement in my project.

Thanks in advance

Someone else wrote on this mailing list:

PostgreSQL supports GSSAPI / Kerberos, which is a much better approach in Active Directory and other environments where Kerberos is deployed.

Using LDAP exposes the user's password to the database server and therefore isn't secure and should be strongly discouraged.

You can certainly have applications authenticate to PostgreSQL using Kerberos too with very little overhead (unlike PG's LDAP authentication option, which makes a synchronous call out to the LDAP server on each and every login).
