some drawbacks. There is a better alternative for securing communications between the client
and server -- <strong>startTLS</strong>.</p>
 <p>The idea is to use an existing connection to send a message to the server and request
it to be encrypted. We keep going with the current connection, on the same port, but the exchanged
data will continue as encrypted.</p>
 <p>The <strong>startTLS</strong> extended operation is used for this. It's
a pure LDAP request that blocks other requests on the connection until it becomes secured.
Of course, if some operations are pending, the operation will not be executed until the pending
operations are completed.</p>
