This is all Openldap 2.1.10, Cyrus SASL 2.1.10, Berkeley BDB 4.1.24:

Cyrus SASL (2.1.10) docs, just follow them - if you've compiled and
installed it correctly and then compiled Openldap against it:

See below

Same as for normal Openldap. All passwords for Openldap DIGEST-MD5 users
must be in cleartext in the DIT (userPassword).

Isn't necessary for Openldap.

No special saslpasswd

You mean saslauthd. No, you don't

Not for Openldap, but running the Cyrus test program is fun, when you
get it to work. This is all in the Cyrus SASL documentation.

Archives, for this mailing list, especially July 12/13 2002 with Howard
Chu's explanation and the esuing enlightenment for all.

No idea, haven't got that far and don't use SASL at the moment, anyway
(I use SSL/TLS and cleartext passwords, 'cos that's what my apps use).

I have this normal suffix in slapd.conf (it's not specially for


and for SASL DIGEST-MD5 in slapd.conf:

sasl-regexp "uid=(.*),cn=digest-md5,cn=auth"

Looking for cn=Tom Smith, authenticating as tonye:

ldapsearch -Y DIGEST-MD5 -b -U tonye 'cn=tom smith'

The above obviously have to exist, but they're not special for SASL.

-U is the SASL authcid (*man ldapsearch*). You have the same rights as
your normal ACLs give you.
