that do should be able to get a connection from the pool, start TLS
before pulling sensitive information from the directory, stop TLS, and
then return the connection to the pool so it can be reused. Without
being able to stop TLS, I'd have to tear down the connection and put it
back in the pool so other threads can use it in a known state. Or, as a
workaround, separate pools could be created, but I'd rather not go that
In looking at ldap.h, there does not seem to be any function defined that allows stopping of TLS. This functionality is pretty common in other libraries. Are there any plans to implement this functionality, or are there any alternative methods I should explore?
Don't bother stopping TLS
Is there any particular technical reason stop TLS hasn't been implemented?
