Client - Server Authentication Using Certificates


I am looking into weather it is possible to do mutual client server authentication with LDAP using certificates generated from openssl and I have a few questions.

The server side of things seams fine. What I would like to know is would it be possible to use a certificate for the client to authenticate itself with the server.
I have been through the openLDAP documentation and I can't seem to find any way to configure the client to use certificates. All I can find is that the client authenticates its self with a dn and password.

If this is possible, some pointers on how to configure the client side would be most appreciated.
