Our Native LDAP client doesn't support certificate authentication to the LDAP server.
Old saslauthd, even though was much inferior in many things, does support it via it's settings
It is important for cases client would like to authenticate with remote LDAP like google GCP.
Currently we support LDAP communication unsecured, secured with Certificate validation or without. However every one of these method require username and password.
