           Summary: Feature proposal - bind phase
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.0.61
          Platform: All
               URL: http://tchorbadjiev.com/patches/httpd-
                    2.0.61/modules/experimental/mod_auth_ldap.c.patch
        OS/Version: FreeBSD
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_auth_ldap
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: apache@tchorbadjiev.com


Hello,
The patch adds two more optional configuration directives to the mod_auth_ldap
module - 
AuthLDAPBindUserSuppliedAuth On/Off
AuthLDAPBindSuffixDN String

The idea is to allow the user supplied credentials to be used for the initial
bind phase, instead of the hard coded ones or anonymous. In my case the LDAP
directory cannot be searched w/o successful authentication and for
administrative reasons we cannot afford to keep the user/pass pair in the
configuration file.

The patch does not change the way, the actual authentication & following checks
made by the module work, but only make it fallback to the user supplied
user/pass pair on the 2x bind calls.

Please let me know whether this is considered a worthy feature at all, and I'll
be happy to provide a cleaner patch.
