What is the difference between dn="" and anonymous?

conn=4069 op=3 BIND dn="" method=128

This is an actual simple bind request (128 == LDAP_AUTH_SIMPLE).

conn=10515 op=4 BIND anonymous mech=implicit ssf=0

When a bind is received, the connection's existing authorization (if any) is cancelled. That log message generated by slapd when a bind is received on a connection that has an existing binding, logging the reversion to anonymous done at the beginning of the bind.
