This document provides a configuration example for securing a LDAP Naming Service environment
by using the TLSv1/SSL authentication method.
The purpose of using TLSv1/SSL is to have the LDAP communication between a client and a server
encrypted during transmission through the network.
Encrypting all data on the sending endpoint and decrypting it on the receiving endpoint requires
additional processing at both sides. This means the client and also the server will use more CPU
resources when using TLSv1/SSL compared to not using that.
Configuring TLSv1/SSL for a LDAP Naming Services environment is a very complex task for system administrators.
This document is intended to get used as a reference for that purpose, as it provides examples for all configuration topics that are needed.
