EFT supports the following database types for authenticating users:
Globalscape Authentication does not rely on outside sources for user information. All authentication information is:
Protected from the operating system
Contained within EFT.
Encrypted and can only be modified through the administration interface.
Windows Active Directory (NTLM/AD) Authentication. Using this method, EFT assigns permissions to users from the NT user database on the system that is running EFT. EFT queries the Primary Domain Controller (PDC) for your domain and adds all domain users to the Settings Template tree.
LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is a protocol for accessing information directories on an LDAP Server.
SMS authentication is available on LDAP sites.
ODBC Authentication allows all users in an external ODBC database to have access to EFT.
Once a Site has been created, you cannot change the authentication method.
When the High Security module is activated, RADIUS is supported on each Globalscape, LDAP, or ODBC-authentication Site. (RADIUS is available in EFT Enterprise only)
