Emmanuel Lecharny updated DIRSERVER-641:
----------------------------------------

    Fix Version/s: 1.5.4

This should be done in 1.5.4 as we will have to review the whole Bind request process.

> The ldap application we are working on has high security requirements, both in terms
of "fine-grained"-policies we need to be able to implement as well as for the audit trail
we must be able to provide.
> For that, we should be able to distinguish/ensure/record in our authenticate() method
> - whether the bind request was received unprotected or protected
> - if with SSL protected, what session key was negotiated (if with 256+bit AES, client
is entitled to see more than with 128 bit, let alone 40). 
> These give our application strong hints whether we must consider a credential (passwords
in particular) compromised or not.
> I assume this would either imply adding 1-2 more parameters to the method interface of
>         LdapPrincipal org.apache.directory.server.core.authn.AbstractAuthenticator.authenticate(ServerContext
ctx) 
> or extending the ServerContext object correspondingly.
