This guide helps you to reduce risk and mitigate threats to directory service security.

A guide to securing directory services can go wrong for many reasons, including at least the following:

  • The author fails to understand or to properly explain the subject.

  • The reader fails to understand or to act on what is written.

  • Bugs exist in the directory’s security-related features.

The authors of this guide aim to understand directory security features and issues before attempting to explain how to manage them.

The reader would do well to gain grounding in securing services and systems, and in applying and designing processes that prevent or mitigate threats, before reading the guide with a critical eye, and a grain of salt. This is not a guide to getting started with security.
