Password repositories

Airlock IAM supports different type of password repositories, i.e. types of systems that store information required for checking passwords:

Type
Description
Relational database
Password hashe values (and salts) are stored in a relational database with the IAM database schema. In this case, the password hashing algorithm is chosen in the IAM configuration.
This is the recommended password respository supporting the largest feature set.
LDAP directory
Passwords can be stored in and checked against LDAP directories.
Typically, the LDAP directory takes care of password hashing.
MS Active Directory
Passwords are stored and managed in an MS Active Directory (MSAD) over the LDAP interface.
The MSAD takes takre of password hashing.
