What is FreeIPA

FreeIPA is an open source, integrated Identity and Authentication solution for Linux/UNIX networked environments. A FreeIPA server provides centralized authentication, authorization and account information by storing data about user, groups, hosts and other objects necessary to manage the security aspects of a network of computers.

Why Should You Use the FreeIPA Connector?

The FreeIPA connector provides visibility into the users in your environment. You can use this visibility to:

  • ensure all users are managed

  • associate users with assets and data

  • monitor user access to assets and data

How Does This Connector Work?

Lucidum executes read-only requests to the FreeIPA REST API and ingests only meta-data about FreeIPA devices. Lucidum does not retrieve any data stored on your assets.
