See the ldap.conf(5) manpage for the definition of what is supported.
OpenLDAP does not read passwords from ldap.conf or .ldaprc. Setting a
password in a globally readable file is stupid, you may as well turn off
security controls and just use anonymous then.
I expect it to work like SASL/GSSAPI when we run an ldapsearch after
retrieving the ticket for the user. Is it possible?
See the ldapsearch(1) manpage. Your best bet is to use the '-y' option.
