Re: Best practise for syncrepl security & latency?

I have this situation at hand, and would like to solve it proper way.
It appears finding this kind of information on OpenLDAP is hard to come
Host1 holds master OpenLDAP DIT.
Host2 holds full syncrepl replicated read-only copy of the same DIT.
Replication latency should be minimised. 30 seconds is ok, tough.
Host1's slapd.conf contains lines like:
syncprov-checkpoint 1 1
Host2's slapd.conf contains line:
It seems to work ok, but I don't like the idea of having plain text
password on the Host2's slapd.conf.
Any comments on the Host1's values would be valuable.
Same goes for Host2's values.
Is SASL the only sensible way to go here, security-wise?
You could use SASL/EXTERNAL (cert auth) certainly... I'll note that
"interval" is not a valid parameter for "refreshAndPersist", I suggest
looking at the "retry" parameter and going back over the documentation.
