ldap_start_tls, ldap_start_tls_s, ldap_tls_inplace, ldap_install_tls — LDAP TLS initialization routines


OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)


#include <ldap.h>

int ldap_start_tls(LDAP *ld);

int ldap_start_tls_s(LDAP *ld, LDAPControl **serverctrls, LDAPControl **clientctrls);

int ldap_tls_inplace(LDAP *ld);

int ldap_install_tls(LDAP *ld);


These routines are used to initiate TLS processing on an LDAP session. ldap_start_tls_s() sends a StartTLS request to a server, waits for the reply, and then installs TLS handlers on the session if the request succeeded. The routine returns LDAP_SUCCESS if everything succeeded, otherwise it returns an LDAP error code. ldap_start_tls() sends a StartTLS request to a server and does nothing else. It returns LDAP_SUCCESS if the request was sent successfully. ldap_tls_inplace() returns 1 if TLS handlers have been installed on the specified session, 0 otherwise. ldap_install_tls() installs the TLS handlers on the given session. It returns LDAP_LOCAL_ERROR if TLS is already installed.
