SASL and encrypted connection?


I compiled OpenLDAP 2.0.7 with SASL and OpenSSL but without Kerberos support 
and after some troubles I got the whole beast running (the documentation is 
somehow sparse)... I haven't configured any SSL certificates yet. 

I managed LDAP searches with simple and SASL (Digest MD5) authentication and 
everything seems to work as expected. However whatching the communication 
with a network sniffer, the whole communication during and after the simple 
bind is clear text (as expected) and the whole communitcation with the 
SASL-bind semms to be encrypted or obscured. I expected an encryped bind 
commuitcation but what is happening with the search request itself. Is this 
behaviour configurable?
