Re: How to secure LDAP ? SSL support ?

  I don't understand what you need, but I'll try to help you:
  In my slapd.conf I wrote:
  TLSCertificateFile      /etc/openldap/newcert.pem
  TLSCertificateKeyFile   /etc/openldap/newcertkey.pem
  TLSCACertificateFile    /etc/openldap/demoCA/private/cacert.pem
  as I found in  http://www.bayour.com/LDAPv3-HOWTO.html#3.1.4.Creating SSL

   To create the certificates I used:
   I launch the server like:
   start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --pidfile /var/run/slapd.pid --exec
/sbin/slapd -- -h "ldap:// ldaps://"

   Then I do
   ldapsearch -x -H ldaps://my.domain.com:639 -D
   'cn=what-you-want' -b
   'cn=kkkk,cn=what-you-want' -w 'secret' -s base (objectclass=*)

   Don't forget to write un your certificate "my.domain.com" and don't use

   If you are running under Linux you will need the SSL libraries for
developers (openssl is the most common). Under windows, maybe the API,
although is worse than the Netscape SDK. 
   I hope this helps you.
   Best regards,
