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 ?

lets try it in other words. There is no such functionality currently in openldap currently.

If you want it you need to develop it.

Currently i am using certificates from file in a path.

Waiting for your inputs.

In libraries/libldap you'll find

tls_g.c  tls_m.c  tls_o.c

which are for GnuTLS, MozNSS, and OpenSSL respectively. I'd imagine that
Right Thing would be to make a new file here, that utilizes the Windows
APIs (therefore accessing the Windows certificate stores).

You're talking about implementing a wrapper around Windows' schannel DLL
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
lots of spare time. ;-}
