 # 2 - Basic LDAP API usage (...)
 
-We provide three different set of methods to send requests to the **LDAP** server :
-* A first set which is the simplest, where the methods don't return a response, except the
_search_ and _compare_ methods
-* A second set, for advanced users, giving full control to the user
-* A third set allowing the user to send asynchronous requests.

 # 2.1 - Connection and disconnection
 
-**LDAP** is a protocol which requires users to be connected - and likely identified (authenticated)
- before sending requests to the server. This connection can potentially be maintained forever.
What makes the **LDAP** protocol different from, say, the **HTTP** protocol is that the connections
are issued explicitly. Here's we'll see how that is done.

 # 5 - LDAP Security
 
-LDAP stores critical informations, and that needs to be secured. The Apache LDAP API provides
a way to access those data, there is little we can do to protect the access to those data,
but we can at least make it impossible for a third party to capture the transiting data.
+LDAP databases store critical information that must be kept secure and the Apache LDAP API
can be used to access it a secure way while in flight.  It can't protect the data while at
rest -- that's for the database system itself to do.

+Generally speaking when it comes to securing a system, we are addressing the three **A**s:
 * Authentication
 * Authorization
 * Auditing
 
-The only aspect we will focus on is the **Authentication** part, because the **LDAP** protocol
does not address the two other aspects, when it comes to an **API**. We will shortly talk
about authorization in the last chapter.

 - securing the communication between the client and the server

-Last, not least, we have seen that we can bind on a **LDAP** server using a name and a password,
but there are other ways to bind, using **SASL**. We will also explain how to use certificates
in SSL/StartTLS.
