NAME

       ldapwhoami - LDAP who am i? tool

SYNOPSIS

       ldapwhoami   [-V[V]]   [-d debuglevel]   [-n]   [-v]  [-x]  [-D binddn]  [-W]  [-w passwd]
       [-y passwdfile]   [-H ldapuri]    [-h ldaphost]    [-p ldapport]    [-e [!]ext[=extparam]]
       [-E [!]ext[=extparam]]   [-o opt[=optparam]]   [-O security-properties]   [-I]  [-Q]  [-N]
       [-U authcid] [-R realm] [-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

       -V[V]  Print version info.  If -VV is given, only the version information is printed.

       -d debuglevel
              Set the LDAP debugging level to  debuglevel.   ldapwhoami  must  be  compiled  with
              LDAP_DEBUG defined for this option to have any effect.

       -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.

       -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 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.

       -e [!]ext[=extparam]

       -E [!]ext[=extparam]

              Specify  general  extensions  with -e and whoami extensions with -E.  ´!´ indicates
              criticality.

              General extensions:
                [!]assert=<filter>    (an RFC 4515 Filter)
                !authzid=<authzid>    ("dn:<dn>" or "u:<user>")
                [!]bauthzid           (RFC 3829 authzid control)
                [!]chaining[=<resolve>[/<cont>]]
                [!]manageDSAit
                [!]noop
                ppolicy
                [!]postread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list)
                [!]preread[=<attrs>]  (a comma-separated attribute list)
                [!]relax
                sessiontracking
                abandon,cancel,ignore (SIGINT sends abandon/cancel,
                or ignores response; if critical, doesn't wait for SIGINT.
                not really controls)

              WhoAmI extensions:
                (none)

       -o opt[=optparam]

              Specify general options.

              General options:
                nettimeout=<timeout>  (in seconds, or "none" or "max")
                ldif-wrap=<width>     (in columns, or "no" for no wrapping)

       -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.

       -N     Do not use reverse DNS to canonicalize SASL host name.

       -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.
