Yes, Faraday’s bucket list is an item shorter as of this release! LDAP support has been on the horizon for quite some time now, but not anymore – this brand new version comes with LDAP support out of the box, no additional modules required, isn’t that neat?
Why LDAP? Well, because a great number of companies around the world use it to centralize their user account management. The protocol provides total control over the credentials in all the platforms, which comes in pretty handy when managing large volumes of data. In fact, LDAP is so popular that some companies have a policy to only use tools that support LDAP authentication.
By adding LDAP support to Faraday, we give our clients the possibility to manage larger teams, implement large-scale installations and maintain a granular and simple control over their user accounts.
In addition, using Faraday over LDAP provides better configuration than ever, allowing complex credential policies such as password expiration and quality standards, or credential lockout.
There are some changes to the Faraday Plugin, improving its functionality by allowing users to run it through the GTK interface, performing actions in batch and filtering objects.
One of the best things about this new version of the Plugin is that you can now use it to script some of the most boring tasks needed in every assessment.
Example of task automation using Faraday Plugin – Running ping for every host that has a service on port 22
We also added a menu option to run directly from GTK!
New menu item in GTK allows users to run Fplugin without having to type anything!Read more about FPlugin in our documentation
Details are everything
And that is what this release is all about. We believe that correcting very specific details and introducing small improvements also adds quality and efficiency to a platform like ours. So it is in those items that we focused on the last iteration.
