The abbreviation LDAPS stands for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol over Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) and offers secure, encrypted access to directory services, e.g. for user authentication of cloud applications.
SSL / TLS technology protects LDAP communication thanks to encryption and authentication of the communication partners. LDAP over SSL / TLS is used to protect data exchange via the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol from unauthorized access, manipulation or reading. Before data transfer between client and server starts using the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, an SSL / TLS connection is usually established via port 636.
SSL / TLS allows the certificate-based authentication of the communication partners and ensures the encryption of the LDAP data. The actual LDAP communication between client and server takes place after the SSL / TLS connection has been established.
