[erlang-questions] Adding StartTLS support to the newly merged eldap?
Mon Aug 6 17:41:18 CEST 2012
I just took a quick look at this and it seems that ejabberd is using
a very different version of eldap than the one that comes with
Erlang/OTP. It looks like they might have integrated a version of
eldap way back and have made numerous modifications to it.
This might not work out so bad for you as I imagine that it will
be easier to get a STARTTLS patch accepted in ejabberd than in OTP.
Then again, it might be that ejabberd plans to start using the OTP
version of eldap whenever it's available. You might want to ask
them about this.
Do you just want STARTTLS support or do you also want the client
to be able to use TLS credentials to authenticate itself to the
server? The reason I ask is that neither versions of eldap seem
to have support for SASL binding at the moment, so that would
need to be added also.
