Title : LDAP: Authentication Methods and Connection Level
Author(s) : R. Harrison
Filename : draft-ietf-ldapbis-authmeth-07.txt
Pages : 50
Date : 2003-10-9
This document describes LDAPv3 (Lightweight Directory Access
Protocol v3) authentication methods and connection level security
mechanisms that are required of all conforming LDAPv3 server
implementations and makes recommendations for combinations of these
mechanisms to be used in various deployment circumstances.
Among the mechanisms described are
- various forms of authentication including anonymous
authentication, password-based authentication, and certificate
- the use of SASL mechanisms with LDAPv3
- the use of TLS (Transport Layer Security) with LDAPv3
- the various authentication and authorization states through
which a connection to an LDAP server may pass and the actions
that trigger these state changes.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
