Hi everyone. I have another "duh" question.
I am writing software for a proprietary piece of hardware. I will be using the C libraries for openldap. I need to write some functions for LDAP so that the UI of the software has the option to authenticate a user via LDAP and LDAP over SSL. Basically it will just act like a client that will Simple Bind to the LDAP server for authentication.
I followed the instructions on the website to generate the SSL certs.
My question is, on the website above it says....
"You must also install a copy of the CA certificate on all of your client machines. Configuration is done in /usr/local/etc/openldap/ldap.conf:"
Does this mean I need to provide a way to the customer to manually transfer his/her CA cert the proprietary hardware, if they want to use LDAP over SSL??? Or when I use the Start TLS function, do the certs automatically get transfered behind the scene?
