How We Secure: Directory Integration

Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)

SurePassID Universal MFA supports the open LDAP standard for integrating with Linux and Unix directories and directory services.


Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is an open, vendor-neutral, industry standard application protocol for accessing and maintaining distributed directory information services over computer networks. LDAP is typically used by Linux and Unix directory services. LDAP is maintained as RFC 4511.

How SurePassID works with LDAP

SurePassID Universal MFA has built-in support for on-premise or cloud LDAP directories. SurePassID can import users from LDAP directories and be synchronized to reflect any changes, eliminating the risks of process gaps and automating administration.

SurePassID can be configured to use a LDAP directory as primary, or SurePassID can function as a primary or tertiary directory with an LDAP directory as secondary where authentication schemes require it.

SurePassID uses https for transport security by default. PKI and X.509 certificates can be used to increase security.

SurePassID Universal MFA synchronizes the following LDAP data:

  • Username
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email
  • Mobile Number
Directory Synchronization Syntax

DirectorySync -ln=loginname -lp=loginpassword -ldapdd=ldapdirectorydomain -ldapf=ldapdirectoryfilter


loginname: is your SurePassID account login name
loginpassword: is you SurePassID account login name
ldapdirectorydomain: is the LDAP directory domain to synchronize
ldapdirectoryfilter: is the LDAP directory filter to synchronize a subset of the LDAP directory domain

Eliminate Process Gaps

Every change to your LDAP directory is automatically reflected in SurePassID. Users are always up-to-date.

Automate Administration

By syncing SurePassID to your LDAP directory, provisioning and deprovisioning can be automatically executed.

Maximize Extensibility

SurePassID can work with your LDAP directory whether it’s on-prem or in the cloud, and can function as secondary or primary.
