Foxpass LDAP installation for Ubuntu 14.04


This version of Ubuntu is no longer supported

Support for this version of Ubuntu has been deprecated. Please use a select a newer version of Ubuntu using the left hand sidebar.

Here's how to set up a Linux integration with LDAP, powered by Foxpass.

First, log into Foxpass and do the following:

  1. Note your Base DN on the dashboard page. Copy/paste it somewhere.
  2. Create an API key named 'sshd' on the API keys page. Copy/paste it somewhere.
  3. Create an LDAP Binder account with the name 'linux' on the LDAP binders page. Copy/paste the generated password! It is only displayed once.
  4. Create an LDAP Group with the name 'foxpass-sudo' on the LDAP groups page. Set it to be a 'posix' group. Add yourself to the group.

Fully Automated!

Just download and run this script with sudo:

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/foxpass/foxpass-setup/master/linux/ubuntu/14.04/foxpass_setup.py
sudo python foxpass_setup.py --base-dn <base_dn> --bind-user <bind_user> --bind-pw <bind_pw> --api-key <api_key>


sudo python foxpass_setup.py --base-dn dc=example,dc=com --bind-user linux --bind-pw efGHbD3aFq --api-key 5GC3NRI5goRBAGkrlsxzYedg0r8HPAO7

(Pro tip: Run the script on a fresh Ubuntu image, then create a new base AMI for your company.)
