           usually needed due to security considerations.
           There are three types of bind calls, ones providing simple  authentica-
           tion,  ones providing SASL authentication, and general routines capable
           of doing either simple or SASL authentication.
           SASL (Simple Authentication and Security Layer) can  negotiate  one  of
           many  different  kinds  of  authentication.  Both synchronous and asyn-
           chronous versions of each variant of the bind call are  provided.   All
           routines   take   ld   as  their  first  parameter,  as  returned  from


           The simplest form of the bind call is ldap_simple_bind_s().   It  takes
           the  DN  to  bind  as  in who, and the userPassword associated with the
           entry  in  passwd.   It  returns  an   LDAP   error   indication   (see
           ldap_error(3)).   The  ldap_simple_bind()  call is asynchronous, taking
           the same parameters but only initiating the bind operation and  return-
           ing the message id of the request it sent.  The result of the operation
           can be obtained by a subsequent call to ldap_result(3).


           The ldap_bind() and ldap_bind_s() routines can be used when the authen-
           tication method to use needs to be selected at runtime.  They both take
           an extra method parameter selecting the authentication method  to  use.
           It  should  be set to LDAP_AUTH_SIMPLE to select simple authentication.
           ldap_bind() returns  the  message  id  of  the  request  it  initiates.
           ldap_bind_s() returns an LDAP error indication.


           For  SASL  binds  the  server always ignores any provided DN, so the dn
           parameter should always be NULL.   ldap_sasl_bind_s()  sends  a  single
           SASL  bind request with the given SASL mechanism and credentials in the
           cred parameter. The format of the credentials depends on the particular
           SASL  mechanism  in use. For mechanisms that provide mutual authentica-
           tion the server's credentials  will  be  returned  in  the  servercredp
           parameter.    The   routine  returns  an  LDAP  error  indication  (see
           ldap_error(3)).  The ldap_sasl_bind() call is asynchronous, taking  the
           same  parameters but only sending the request and returning the message
           id of the request it sent. The result of the operation can be  obtained
           by  a  subsequent call to ldap_result(3).  The result must be addition-
           ally parsed by ldap_parse_sasl_bind_result() to obtain any server  cre-
           dentials sent from the server.
           Many  SASL  mechanisms  require multiple message exchanges to perform a
           complete   authentication.   Applications    should    generally    use
           ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s()    rather   than   calling   the   basic
           ldap_sasl_bind() functions directly. The mechs parameter should contain
           a  space-separated list of candidate mechanisms to use. If this parame-
           ter is NULL or empty the library will query the supportedSASLMechanisms
           attribute from the server's rootDSE for the list of SASL mechanisms the
           server supports. The flags parameter controls the interaction  used  to
           is no defined format for the defaults information;  it  is  up  to  the
           caller  to use whatever format is appropriate for the supplied interact
           function.  The sasl_interact parameter comes from the  underlying  SASL
           library.  When used with Cyrus SASL this is an array of sasl_interact_t
           structures. The Cyrus SASL library will prompt for a variety of inputs,
                  the realm for the authentication attempt
                  the username to authenticate
                  the password for the provided username
                  the username to use for proxy authorization
                  generic prompt for input with input echoing disabled
                  generic prompt for input with input echoing enabled
                  indicates the end of the array of prompts
           See the Cyrus SASL documentation for more details.
           Applications  which  need  to manage connections asynchronously may use
           ldap_sasl_interactive_bind() instead of  the  synchronous  version.   A
           valid  mechs  parameter must be supplied, otherwise the library will be
           forced to query the server for a list of supported mechanisms, and this
           query  will  be  performed synchronously.  The other parameters are the
           same as for the synchronous function, with three additional parameters.
           The  actual  SASL  mechanism  that was used, and the message ID for use
           with ldap_result() will be returned in rmechp and msgidp, respectively.
           The  value  in  rmechp  must  not be modified by the caller and must be
           passed  back  on  each  subsequent  call.  The  message  obtained  from
           ldap_result()  must  be passed in the result parameter.  This parameter
           must be NULL when initiating a new  Bind.  The  caller  must  free  the
           result   message   after   each   call   using   ldap_msgfree().    The
           ldap_sasl_interactive_bind() function returns an LDAP result  code.  If
           the  code  is  LDAP_SASL_BIND_IN_PROGRESS then the Bind is not complete
           yet, and this function must be called again with the next  result  from
           the server.


           The ldap_set_rebind_proc function() sets the process to use for binding
           when an operation returns a referral. This function  is  used  when  an
           application needs to bind to another server in order to follow a refer-
           The url parameter points to the URL referral string received  from  the
           LDAP  server.  The LDAP application can use the ldap_url_parse(3) func-
           tion to parse the string into its components.
           The request parameter specifies the type of request that generated  the
           The  msgid parameter specifies the message ID of the request generating
           the referral.
           The params parameter is the same value  as  passed  originally  to  the
           ldap_set_rebind_proc() function.
           The  LDAP  libraries  set  all the parameters when they call the rebind
           function. The application should not attempt to free either the  ld  or
           the url structures in the rebind function.
           The application must supply to the rebind function the required authen-
           tication information such as, user name,  password,  and  certificates.
           The rebind function must use a synchronous bind method.


           The  ldap_unbind() call is used to unbind from the directory, terminate
           the current association, and free the resources  contained  in  the  ld
           structure.   Once  it  is  called, the connection to the LDAP server is
           closed, and the ld structure is invalid.  The ldap_unbind_s()  call  is
           just  another  name  for  ldap_unbind();  both  of these calls are syn-
           chronous in nature.
           The ldap_unbind_ext() and ldap_unbind_ext_s() allows the operations  to
           specify  controls.


           Asynchronous  routines  will  return  -1  in case of error, setting the
           ld_errno parameter of the ld structure.   Synchronous  routines  return
           whatever ld_errno is set to.  See ldap_error(3) for more information.


           If an anonymous bind is sufficient for the application, the rebind pro-
           cess need not be provided. The LDAP libraries with the  LDAP_OPT_REFER-
           RALS  option set to ON (default value) will automatically follow refer-
           rals using an anonymous bind.
           If the application needs  stronger  authentication  than  an  anonymous
           bind,  you  need  to  provide  a rebind process for that authentication
           method.  The bind method must be synchronous.
