Re: OpenLDAP server should use windows certificate store for certificates

Thanks for the reply,

How to replace the file based access in OpenLDAP with windows certificate store access.
we have the functionality to access the windows certificate store but how to integrate with OpenLDAP ?

You're talking about implementing a wrapper around Windows' schannel DLL which
in turn uses CAPI key stores.

Another also rather hypothetical approach:
I vaguely remember that someone wrote a PKCS#11 provider for accessing CAPI
keystore which could be used in libnss and therefore in OpenLDAP (tls_m.c).
It would be a lot of work to get that going - something for adventurers with
lots of spare time. ;-}
