NAME

ldapwhoami - LDAP who am i? tool  

SYNOPSIS

ldapwhoami [-n] [-v] [-z] [-d debuglevel] [-D binddn] [-W] [-w passwd] [-y passwdfile] [-H ldapuri] [-h ldaphost] [-p ldapport] [-O security-properties] [-I] [-Q] [-U authcid] [-R realm] [-x] [-X authzid] [-Y mech] [-Z[Z]]  

DESCRIPTION

ldapwhoami implements the LDAP "Who Am I?" extended operation.

ldapwhoami opens a connection to an LDAP server, binds, and performs a whoami operation.  

OPTIONS

-n
Show what would be done, but don't actually perform the whoami operation. Useful for debugging in conjunction with -v.
-v
Run in verbose mode, with many diagnostics written to standard output.
-d debuglevel
Set the LDAP debugging level to debuglevel. ldapwhoami must be compiled with LDAP_DEBUG defined for this option to have any effect.
-x
Use simple authentication instead of SASL.
-D binddn
Use the Distinguished Name binddn to bind to the LDAP directory.
-W
Prompt for simple authentication. This is used instead of specifying the password on the command line.
-w passwd
Use passwd as the password for simple authentication.
-y passwdfile
Use complete contents of passwdfile as the password for simple authentication.
-H ldapuri
Specify URI(s) referring to the ldap server(s); only the protocol/host/port fields are allowed; a list of URI, separated by whitespace or commas is expected.
-h ldaphost
Specify an alternate host on which the ldap server is running. Deprecated in favor of -H.
-p ldapport
Specify an alternate TCP port where the ldap server is listening. Deprecated in favor of -H.
-P 2|3
Specify the LDAP protocol version to use.
-O security-properties
Specify SASL security properties.
-I
Enable SASL Interactive mode. Always prompt. Default is to prompt only as needed.
-Q
Enable SASL Quiet mode. Never prompt.
-U authcid
Specify the authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the ID depends on the actual SASL mechanism used.
-R realm
Specify the realm of authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the realm depends on the actual SASL mechanism used.
-X authzid
Specify the requested authorization ID for SASL bind. authzid must be one of the following formats: dn:<distinguished name> or u:<username>
-Y mech
Specify the SASL mechanism to be used for authentication. If it's not specified, the program will choose the best mechanism the server knows.
-Z[Z]
Issue StartTLS (Transport Layer Security) extended operation. If you use -ZZ, the command will require the operation to be successful.
