I am trying to use OpenLDAP from an embedded Linux system to
authenticate (PAM LDAP) against a Windows AD server. I must use
TLS to secure this, but I would rather not use SASL or Kerberos if
you are not dealing
here with OpenLDAP....

Uh... I really wouldn't recommend centos (or any rh-derivative), try Debian
or Ubuntu (these could prove to be better suited for this kind of job).
I have been able to mock this up on a Centos system without TLS, and
the PAM worked fine. When I turn on TLS, the Windows server
handshakes the TLS but then has a problem with the first message. I
am also working that side.
Most likely, cert trust, you need to CA that signed the windows server
certificate, and make OpenLDAP client trust it.
I have walked through the handshake with s_client, and the connection
I am now working with ldapsearch and trying things....
The first thing I notice is that it seems to try an SASL bind. Can
I stop this?
I'm not sure I have SASL actually installed on this system, and I'm
not sure I want it in my target.
ldapsearch -x <--- does simple auth instead of sasl.
Is this possible? from both the OpenLDAP client and/or Windows AD?
Ideas on the correct alphabet soup to try this with ldapsearch would
Well, I have seen this done through samba, but you *should* be able
to use AD's LDAP to authenticate your Linux workstation, I guess.
I tried the following command and here are the results... note that
after the simple_bind, a SASL_bind line appears. I'd like to dig
into this deeper.... What will give me more info?
ldapsearch -d 1 -v -x -H ldaps://172.16.9.3:363 -b "dc=foobar,dc=local" -D
'FOOBAR\mgr' -w 'Strongpw@09' '(sAMAccountName=mgr)'
Port 363???? afaik, AD uses standard 389 port, try this better: ldap://
172.16.9.3:389 , and, maybe, add -Z parameter to ldapsearch (to attempt
ldap_initialize( ldaps://172.16.9.3:363 )
ldap_new_connection 1 1 0
ldap_connect_to_host: TCP 172.16.9.3:363
ldap_connect_to_host: Trying 172.16.9.3:363
ldap_connect_timeout: fd: 3 tm: -1 async: 0
ldap_bind: Can't contact LDAP server (-1)
Not unexpected (because of the port).
