Examples for ldap.sasl

This example connects to an OpenLDAP server via LDAP over IPC (see draft-chu-ldap-ldapi) and sends a SASL external bind request.

import ldap, ldap.sasl, urllib

ldapi_path = '/tmp/openldap-socket'
ldap_conn = ldap.initialize(
    'ldapi://%s' % (
        urllib.quote_plus(ldapi_path)
    )
)
# Send SASL bind request for mechanism EXTERNAL
ldap_conn.sasl_non_interactive_bind_s('EXTERNAL')
# Find out the SASL Authorization Identity
print ldap_conn.whoami_s()
