This doesn't require client certificates, just an server certificate.
A client certificate would only be needed if the LDAP client desired
to use TLS-based client authentication.

Hmmm .. you are saying that the client can connect to the server using _just_ the server certificate ?

Much like when you use a web browser to visit a web site. Your web browser doesn't need to present a client certificate to create an encrypted session. Just the web server needs to have a server certificate. The web browser just needs to have the CA's available to validate the server's cert.
