I understood that there's a major difference in that ldapdb is supposed to
retrieve the password from the LDAP repository (using a controlled, secure
channel) and performs SASL auth in between client and server, which can be
chosen also secure (e.g. DIGEST-MD5).
pam_ldap in contrast authenticates a credential sent to the server with the
LDAP repository. Therefore, the credential sent by the client must be
decodeable, which is a major weakness in the protocol.
Am I mistaken about that?
