Improve IBM QRadar LDAP authentication

The IBM QRadar platform supports various authentication types, enabling you to
configure different authentication mechanisms to validate users and passwords. The most widely
used authentication source in today’s dynamic infrastructure is LDAP (Lightweight Directory
Access Protocol). While IBM QRadar supports LDAP as an authentication type, the supported
integration can be less than satisfactory. This article explains a solution that uses Tivoli
Directory Integrator, which works as a “man-in-the-middle” to receive secure anonymous
requests from QRadar and send authenticated requests to the LDAP Authentication Server.
