Important Notice: Phasing out LDAP for Azure Authentication

The Office of Information Technology is phasing out the use of Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) for authentication purposes by the end of 2024. Instead, we are transitioning to more secure and efficient solutions provided by Microsoft, specifically Azure Authentication and Microsoft Entra ID (formerly Azure AD).

What does this mean for you? If you manage a departmental application and that application currently uses LDAP for authentication, please note that it will soon be deprecated. As such, we kindly ask all application owners and support teams to begin the migration process to Azure Authentication or Microsoft Entra ID as soon as possible.

While OIT will handle the migration of authentication systems at the infrastructure level, the responsibility of migrating individual applications to the new authentication protocols will fall upon the respective application owners and support teams. We understand that this may require some effort and coordination, and we are here to assist you throughout the transition process.

If you have any questions or require assistance with the migration process, please email the Office of Information Technology’s identity mailbox – and someone will reach out to you with assistance.
