May be you can provide an example which will show plain text password?
What are you talking about ?
You have asked that openLDAP not to encode the UserPassword value, when
OpenLDAP does *not* encode anything. The value is *always* store in
binary format. This is the LdapSearch utility which encodes in base64
this attribute, which is supposed not to be a String, but a byte array :
attributetype ( 188.8.131.52
DESC 'RFC2256/2307: password of user'
SYNTAX 184.108.40.206.4.1.14220.127.116.11.40 // Which is OctetString...
This is what to expect from a decent tool, like LdapSearch. Would it
make any sense that the tool tries to expose any OctetString value as a
String, and fallback to a base64 encoding if the valeu does not contain
some SAFE_CHARS ?
Now, if you want to get the String value out of a base64 encoded
OctetString AttributeType, you have to write your own tooling...
