Securing Neo4j Cluster with LDAP and Kerberos

Kerberos is a widespread and highly secure protocol for authentication, which protects user credentials and reduces the need for network communication between your Neo4j cluster and the authenticating server. Kerberos can further provide an attractive end-user experience via the single-sign-on mechanism. In this session, we will explore how Kerberos can be used to secure a Neo4j cluster together with LDAP authorization, and what this means for system admins and app developers.
