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] [-e [!]ext[=extparam]] [-E [!]ext[=extparam]] [-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. For SASL binds, the server is expected to ignore this value. -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 white- space 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. -O security-properties Specify SASL security properties. -e [!]ext[=extparam] -E [!]ext[=extparam] Specify general extensions with -e and search extensions with -E. '!' indicates criticality. General extensions: [!]assert=<filter> (an RFC 4515 Filter) [!]authzid=<authzid> ("dn:<dn>" or "u:<user>") [!]manageDSAit [!]noop ppolicy [!]postread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list) [!]preread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list) abandon, cancel (SIGINT sends abandon/cancel; not really controls) Search extensions: [!]domainScope (domain scope) [!]mv=<filter> (matched values filter) [!]pr=<size>[/prompt|noprompt] (paged results/prompt) [!]sss=[-]<attr[:OID]>[/[-]<attr[:OID]>...] (server side sorting) [!]subentries[=true|false] (subentries) [!]sync=ro[/<cookie>] (LDAP Sync refreshOnly) rp[/<cookie>][/<slimit>] (LDAP Sync refreshAndPersist) -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 success- ful. EXAMPLE
