Re: ldapi security level?

You have to use SASL/EXTERNAL.
Eh? Simple Bind is secure enough if the LDAP connection (if ldapi
can be called a connection) is secure.
Ah yes, I suppose so. And yes, ldapi uses a "connection" by any sense of
the word. The fact that the connection is over a Unix Domain socket
doesn't make that any less true.
How do I use SASL/EXTERNAL with ldapi?
"ldapsearch -H ldapi:// -Y EXTERNAL" generally works for me. Don't
bother trying this on Windows; only Unix Domain sockets are supported.
