What do you mean by "encryption" here? Is this (let's say SSL/TLS) data
encryption, over the wire, or simply that data in is encrypted? If the
latter, what is the expense of the latter compared to SSL/TLS? Which is
preferable from a data security point of view?

O.k., this has nothing to do with Openldap software ... etc. Take it
