You proposed to set option for certificate file and key file before connection is
established. I already did this. Issue that I found is "some" mismatch between
global structure (initiated in ldap_initialize function, or, precisely it is getopts found
in ldap_create and initiated with LDAP_INT_GLOBAL_OPT()) and ld_options structure that is
member of LDAP (precisely, ld_options is member of ldap_common, which is the member of
So, ld_options will contain all data that are set by set_options function. Unfortunately,
deep in the call stack:
tlso_init() Line 148 C
tls_init(tls_impl * impl=0x08bfe650) Line 168 C

when tls context is initiated, ldap options are again initiated with LDAP_INT_GLOBAL_OPT()
which does not contain values set by set_option.
Any clue here?

Hi OpenLDAP team,
I have a question, simple I hope, for you - I need to send client
certificate to the server openldap server (by using openldap api and openSSL).
For completing this job, first I initalized ldap with url containing
ldaps in the url scheme (ldaps://fqdn_of_ldap_server:636).
You must set all of the TLS options before contacting the remote server. In particular,
you must set your certificate file and key file in advance.
I have set
LDAP_OPT_PROTOCOL_VERSION -> LDAP_VERSION3
This is already the default.
This is unnecessary, the server name will be parsed from the URL.
and then I called ldap_sasl_bind:
ldap_sasl_bind(mLdapObj, NULL, "EXTERNAL", NULL, NULL, NULL, &msgid);
What I saw is that certficate from the server was received, but how to
send client certifikate. I played arround with LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_CERTFILE
(sending the abs path to the .pem file) but nothing. Also, I saw that
this parameter was not taken into account - it looks like ssl_ctx
object used for ssl_connect does not include path to the file (like
two global structures used for setting up ctx know nothing about each
Can you, help me with this?
