Digital certificate requirement for CA LDAP

Is setting up digital certificates for an SSL connection to CA LDAP required?

Environment

Release:
Component: TSSLDP

Resolution

You dont have to use a secured port to connect to CA LDAP, but it is recommended if you will have clients connecting from the internet.

Information being passed back and forth between CA LDAP and the client application can be seen.

By default 636 is defined as a secure port and digital certificates need to be setup if you wish to use that port.

By default 389 is an unsecured port, so digital certificates should not be defined for it.
