    Moodle and LDAP Security Concerns

    Hi we have set up a Moodle site on our Win2003 webserver. The webserver is in school and can easily be connected to our network for LDAP authentication (tried it quickly and it works beautifully!), however, I have pulled the cable for now as I don’t know how best to secure it! We don’t want all and sundry hacking into our school network – so what have other places done to combat this potential problem!

    Is blocking all ports except LDAP (389?) acceptable? Do we need another ISA between the webserver and our network monitoring all traffic? Any suggestions welcome! 8O

    Your LDAP server can see your web server, just not the other way around. Install an LDAP server on your web server and have the master LDAP server replicate (push) its data to the one on your web server.

    We have done the same thing. Our moodle install looks to our web server for its LDAP config.
