RE: Cannot search usercertificate binary data with raw data


a) I have extracted the user certificate from the directory to a file using "ldapsearch -t .... "
Ive encoded the result file with hexdump and added slashes (and double slashes and tested also with reversing the byte order)
Iam using the result as a search filter against the directory, and no results

b) Ive copy/pasted all the values from apache error_log (which comes from the user browser) and used as a filter to ldapsearch and nothing
etc etc etc

a) and b) filters are the same, so I think I am doing the right tests, without errors

I dont have any more ideas... :(

c) I will make every test again next monday just to be sure i didnt copy/pasted any error

I am starting to think of making some smaller testcase with some other binary fields, like a jpg for example. What do you think?
Add a image attribute to the user, load a very small (1x1) jpg, hexdump it to a file and try to feed it to ldapsearch until i get something
This is the only idea I have so far that other users could test without too much effort and compare results with me....
