LDAP servers

SPS can authenticate the users of the controlled SSH or RDP connections to LDAP databases.

URL
GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/policies/ldap_servers
Cookies
Cookie name Description Required Values
session_id Contains the authentication token of the user Required

The value of the session ID cookie received from the REST server in the authentication response, for example, a1f71d030e657634730b9e887cb59a5e56162860. For details on authentication, see Authenticate to the SPS REST API.

Note that this session ID refers to the connection between the REST client and the SPS REST API. It is not related to the sessions that SPS records (and which also have a session ID, but in a different format).

Sample request

The following command lists the available LDAP server configurations.

curl --cookie cookies https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/policies/ldap_servers

The following command retrieves the properties of a specific LDAP server.

curl --cookie cookies https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/policies/ldap_servers/<object-id>

Element Type Description
key string Top level element, contains the ID of the LDAP server configuration.
body Top level element (string) Contains the properties of the LDAP server.
user_base_dn string

Name of the DN to be used as the base of queries regarding users.

NOTE: You must fill in this field. It is OK to use the same value for user_base_dn and group_base_dn.

However, note that specifying a sufficiently narrow base for the LDAP subtrees where users and groups are stored can speed up LDAP operations.

group_base_dn string

Name of the DN to be used as the base of queries regarding groups.

NOTE: You must fill in this field. It is OK to use the same value for user_base_dn and group_base_dn.

However, note that specifying a sufficiently narrow base for the LDAP subtrees where users and groups are stored can speed up LDAP operations.

bind_dn string The Distinguished Name that SPS should use to bind to the LDAP directory.
bind_password string

References the password SPS uses to authenticate on the server. You can configure passwords at the /api/configuration/passwords/ endpoint.

To modify or add a password, use the value of the returned key as the value of the password element, and remove any child elements (including the key).

encryption Top level item Configuration settings for encrypting the communication between SPS and the LDAP server.
generated_publickey_attribute string

Set this element to null if you use passwords to authenticate.

Configure this element if you want SPS to generate server-side encryption keys on-the-fly, and store them in a separate attribute on the LDAP server.

Status and error codes

The following table lists the typical status and error codes for this request. For a complete list of error codes, see Application level error codes.

Code Description Notes
201 Created The new resource was successfully created.
400 InvalidQuery The requested filter or its value is invalid.
401 Unauthenticated The requested resource cannot be retrieved because the client is not authenticated and the resource requires authorization to access it. The details section contains the path that was attempted to be accessed, but could not be retrieved.

Signing CA policies

SPS can generate the server-side certificates on the fly. This technique is used for example in SSL-encrypted RDP sessions, RDP sessions that use Network Level Authentication (CredSSP), or SSH connections that use X.509-based authentication.

URL
GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/policies/signing_cas
Cookies
Cookie name Description Required Values
session_id Contains the authentication token of the user Required

The value of the session ID cookie received from the REST server in the authentication response, for example, a1f71d030e657634730b9e887cb59a5e56162860. For details on authentication, see Authenticate to the SPS REST API.

Note that this session ID refers to the connection between the REST client and the SPS REST API. It is not related to the sessions that SPS records (and which also have a session ID, but in a different format).

Sample request

The following command lists the configured signing Certificate Authorities (CAs).

curl --cookie cookies https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/policies/signing_cas

The following command retrieves the properties of a specific policy.

curl --cookie cookies https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/policies/signing_cas/<object-id>

Time policy

The time policy determines the timeframe when the users are permitted to access a particular channel. To list the available Time policies, use the following command.

curl --cookie cookies https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/policies/time_policies

The following sections detail the properties of Time policy objects.

URL
GET https:<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/policies/time_policies/<object-id>
Cookies
Cookie name Description Required Values
session_id Contains the authentication token of the user Required

The value of the session ID cookie received from the REST server in the authentication response, for example, a1f71d030e657634730b9e887cb59a5e56162860. For details on authentication, see Authenticate to the SPS REST API.

Note that this session ID refers to the connection between the REST client and the SPS REST API. It is not related to the sessions that SPS records (and which also have a session ID, but in a different format).

Trusted Certificate Authorities

SPS can check the validity of certificates using the certificates and certificate-revocation lists of trusted certificate authorities (CAs) that issued the certificates.

URL
GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/policies/trusted_ca_lists
Cookies
Cookie name Description Required Values
session_id Contains the authentication token of the user Required

Element Type Description
key string Top level element, contains the ID of the CA.
body Top level element (string) Contains the properties of the CA.
authorities Top level list

Contains the certificates and the Certificate Revocation Lists (CLR) of the trusted CAs.

You can add multiple certificate and CRL pairs.

certificate string The certificate of the trusted CA.
crl string The URL of the Certificate Revocation List of the CA.
dn_check Top level item Certificates are only accepted if their content matches the configured values.
altEmailAddress string The certificate is only accepted if its alternative e-mail address matches the value of the altEmailAddress element.
c string The certificate is only accepted if its country matches the value of the c element.
cn string The certificate is only accepted if its common name matches the value of the cn element.
emailAddress string The certificate is only accepted if its e-mail address matches the value of the emailAddress element.
l string The certificate is only accepted if its locality matches the value of the l element.
o string The certificate is only accepted if its organization name matches value of the o element.
ou string The certificate is only accepted if its organization unit name matches value of the ou element.
st string The certificate is only accepted if its state or province matches value of the st element.
dns_lookup boolean Set to true to use the domain name server set on the /api/configuration/network/naming endpoint to resolve the hostnames and IP addresses for certificate validation. If you have enabled strict_hostcheck, you probably want to enable this option as well.
name string The name of the trusted CA. This name is also displayed on the SPS web interface. It cannot contain whitespace.
strict_hostcheck boolean Set to true to configure only accepting certificates where the Common Name of the certificate contains the hostname or the IP address of the host showing the certificate.
Uploading CA certificates

SPS uses only the key part of the CA certificate.

To use a certificate with the SPS API, remove all data, and substitute line breaks with \n.
