access control puzzlement

I'm trying to implement access controls for an LDAP database and I'm
finding myself increasingly confused by the documentation.  I think I
follow the pattern matching description but it's not clear to me how one
specifies passwords to go along with matching dn's.

If I'm reading the documentation correctly, once a request passes the
"what" hurdle, passing the "who" hurdle can be a simple as coming from the
right domain/address or supplying a dn.  I would expect a password or some
other form of "shared secret" or authentication to go along with the dn.

how far off base am I?  Any documentation in addition to the University of
Michigan administrators guide would be greatly appreciated.
