DescriptionThe OpenVPN Auth-LDAP Plugin implements username/password authentication via LDAP for OpenVPN 2.x.

FeaturesUser authentication against LDAP. Simple Apache-style configuration file. LDAP group-based access restrictions. Integration with the OpenBSD packet filter, supporting adding and removing VPN clients from PF tables based on group membership. Tested against OpenLDAP, the plugin will authenticate against any LDAP server that supports LDAP simple binds -- including Active Directory. BuildingRequirementsOpenLDAP Headers and Library GNU Objective-C Compiler OpenVPN Plugin Header (included with the OpenVPN sources) re2c (used for the configuration file lexer) To build, you will need to configure the sources appropriately. Example:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-openldap=/usr/local --with-openvpn=/usr/ports/security/openvpn/work/openvpn-2.0.2The module will be build in src/ and installed as ${prefix}/lib/

UsageAdd the following to your OpenVPN configuration file (adjusting the plugin path as required):

plugin /usr/local/lib/ ""The config directive must point to an auth-ldap configuration file. An example configuration file is provided with the distribution, or see the Configuration page.

SecurityPlease report all security issues directly to landonf+security (at) bikemonkey (dot) org.

Through the use of extensive unit testing, valgrind, and regression testing, we are very confident in the overall code quality of the plugin. There has been one security vulnerability to date, due to misinterpretation of LDAP RFCs.

2006-12-02: OpenVPN Auth-LDAP would accept empty passwords when validating against Novell Directory Server. This is known to not affect default installs of OpenLDAP (our test platform). Strict implementation of the LDAP RFCs requires that a directory server treat a bind with a valid DN and an empty password as an "anonymous" bind. If anonymous binds are enabled, this could lead to password bypass.
