I created two branches in my tree called "ou=System Groups" and "ou=System
Accounts". These kind of "users" I put there, and I use the group names in

Yes. Think about it: it's like an user typing his/her password at a login

in this context.
You can get away with it, a bit, if using SASL GSSAPI or perhaps EXTERNAL. But
a secret will always be stored in the machine, be it a password, private key,
keytab file, etc.
Right. Makes sense. There will be *a* file that needs to be secure.
Since the permissions on slapd.conf are 640, that's ok. Just wanted to
make sure I wasn't missing something obvious. :)
Thanx so much for the help.
