Checking the supported SASL authentication mechanisms

You can check which Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL) authentication mechanisms are supported.

  1. Using an LDAP browser, such as the one from Softerra, check the values of the supportedSASLMechanisms attributes on the root node of your LDAP server.

    Note: The simple authentication method will not be reported because it is not a SASL mechanism.
  2. If you use OpenLDAP, you can also query using ldapsearch. For example:

    ldapsearch -h localhost -p 389 -x -b "" -s base -LLL supportedSASLMechanisms
    supportedSASLMechanisms: DIGEST-MD5
    supportedSASLMechanisms: NTLM
    supportedSASLMechanisms: CRAM-MD5
