RE: is that common to use kerberos authentication for SUN iplanet LDAP server?

Whether a directory can do SASL/GSSAPI data privacy and/or integrity is
directory server specific.  Some directories (AD) support privacy and/or
integrity protection.  Others (Sun) don't, so you must use SSL. 

One other thing to be aware of is that clients and downgrade the privacy
and integrity protection.  If clients can do downgrade the data
protection, it makes me wonder if an attacker can downgrade the session.
I haven't looked into it enough.

Craig,

you say you use SASL + SSL. As far as I know SASL/GSSAPI can do
encryption 
too. What was the reason not to use SASL/GSSAPI with encryption. And
example 
is AD, which can be accessed via SASL/GSSAPI with encryption.

Thanks
Markus
