A. Configuring Samba with SSL

This appendix describes how to set up Samba to use secure connections between the Samba server and its clients. The protocol used here is Netscape's Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). For this example, we will establish a secure connection between a Samba server and a Windows NT workstation.

Before we begin, we will assume that you are familiar with the fundamentals of public-key cryptography and X.509 certificates. If not, we highly recommend Bruce Schneier's Applied Cryptography, 2nd Edition (Wiley) as the premiere source for learning the many secret faces of cryptography.

If you would like more information on Samba and SSL, be sure to look at the document SSLeay.txt in the docs/textdocs directory of the Samba distribution, which is the basis for this appendix.
