Configuring Lawson for LDAP Signing

As you might have heard, Microsoft is hardening their security with LDAP channeling and LDAP signing in an update coming sometime in the 2nd half of 2020. Any applications that rely on LDAP connections to Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) or Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) need to be converted to LDAPS. LDAPS is a secure connection protocol used between applications like Lawson and the Network Directory or Domain Controller. In this webinar, we will provide you step-by-step instructions for preparing your Lawson and Landmark environments to work with LDAP Signing.
