The Centrify Connector enables secure communication between your internal network (AD or LDAP) and Privileged Access Service.
You can use the Centrify Connector to authenticate Privileged Access Service users by using their Active Directory or LDAP account
The Centrify Connector runs on a server that is joined to your domain (best practice is to not install on the domain controller) and manages communications between Active Directory/LDAP and Privileged Access Service. It also monitors Active Directory for group policy changes, which it sends to Privileged Access Service to update registered devices.
To integrate your Active Directory/LDAP service with Privileged Access Service, you need to install at least one connector on your network inside the firewall.
You can also install a Centrify Connector outside of Active Directory for use with gateway-based auditing. For details, see Auditing systems outside of Active Directory.
