# Bottin
<div style="text-align: center"><img src="bottin.go" height="250px" /></div>
Bottin is a LDAP server that uses Consul's key-value store as a storage backend,
in order to provide a redundant (high-availability) LDAP server on a Nomad+Consul cluster.
It is a reimplementation of [superboum's Bottin](https://github.com/superboum/bottin)

# Configuration of Bottin
## Configuration of Bottin
## Logging
### Logging
Bottin supports all of the log levels of [logrus](https://github.com/sirupsen/logrus).
The log level can be specified in the key `log_level` of the json config file,
or in the environment variable `BOTTIN_LOG_LEVEL`.
By default, the log level is set to `info`.
## The LDAP suffix
### The LDAP suffix
Bottin only handles LDAP entries under a given path, which is typically of
the form `dn=sld,dn=tld`, where `sld.tld` is your domain name. Specify this
suffix in the `suffix` key of the json config file.
## Connection to the Consul server
### Connection to the Consul server
By default, Bottin connects to the Consul server on localhost.
Change this by specifying the `consul_host` key in the json config file.
## Bind addresses

### Insecure port
#### Insecure port
By default, Bottin listens on all interfaces on port 389 for standard
non-TLS connections. Change the value of the `bind` key in the json config
file to change this behaviour (default value: `0.0.0.0:389`). An empty string
will disable this port and Bottin will not listen for non-TLS connections.

The secure port is disabled and a warning is shown if the `bind_secure` value
is set (non-empty) and no valid TLS configuration is provided.
## Access control list
### Access control list
Bottin supports a flexible syntax to specify access rights to items in the database.
The ACL is specified as a list of rules. A request will be allowed if there exists a rule that allows it. Otherwise an insufficient permission error will be returned.
The list of ACL rules are specified in the `acl` key of the json config file, as a list of strings whose structure is defined in the next paragraph.
### Rule format

5. The allowed attributes for a read, add or modify operation. This is specified as a list of patterns to include and exclude attributes, separated by spaces. A pattern that starts by `!` is an exclude pattern, otherwise it is an include pattern. To read/write an attribute, it has to match at least one include pattern and not match any exclude pattern. Delete operations do not check for any attribute, thus as soon as `delete` is included in the allowed actions, the right to delete entities is granted.
### Rule examples
#### Rule examples
- Anybody (before binding) can bind to an entity under `ou=users,dc=bottin,dc=eu`:
`ANONYMOUS::bind:*,ou=users,dc=bottin,dc=eu:`
