Re: Kerberos + SASL question
Thank you for your response. I have been searching and I can always use the
binddn option in /etc/ldap.conf. However, the fact that I need to put the
binddn password in the file does not make me very confident.
How do you restrict the anonymous bind to get the passwd info?
Thnak you & regards,

I am having problems understanding kerberos, LDAP and Cyrus SASL
I am using LDAP to store the users information like uid, home directory,
grouid, geco (passwd without the password field).
I have kerberos configured and working.
I understand that SASL is a layer that provides authentication mechanims
to protocols like LDAP. By using GSSAPI, as soon as I get a Kerberos TGT
I will be allowed to get a TGS for LDAP. However, if the LDAP directory
holds my userid and groupid, necessary to pam_krb5, and if I need a TGT
to access a TGS for ldap how will I be able to login.
If I have the concepts wrong please let me know.
I use a site restricted anonymous bind for getting information out of the
directory related to passwd file information.
