Encrypting Authentication Passwords.
I was woundering anybody could comment on the following questions.
I am running openldap-1.2.11-15 (the latest RedHat release) on an intel
machine with RedHat 7 (kernel 2.2.16-22) as the OS, I have also been
working with openssl-0.9.5a-14 and stunnel-3.10-2 in an attempt to
encrypt the cleartext authentication password.
I have ldap authentication working but can't get any encryption
working, openssl certificates have been created and are accepted by
stunnel. I have My client side /etc/ldap.conf has the following appended
to it (but it doesn't make any difference).
Is it possible to make the ldap client use ssl to encrypt the password
based on the version of ldap that I am using (I understand from the
archives that this is not an option prior to ldapv3) ??
Is there a 'better' way to encrypt the password using the ldap version
that I have, hopefully without using kerebos ??
