Ah. Quanah's approach would be the most likely solution IMHO. You can
use the ssf options in your ACL list. 'man(5) slapd.access' will give
you the options and 'man(5) slapd.conf' will explain what the option
factors are and their values. Seems like you can only do this with TLS,
not with SSL, since TLS gives the option of encryption or no encryption.
