LDAP Proxy Becomes Non-Responsive

Issue: LDAP Proxy becomes non-responsive due to multiple issues. (Bug 1121678)

LDAP Proxy Crashes

Issue: LDAP Proxy crashes when LDAPS connection is established with the proxy server. (Bug 1064633)

LDAP Proxy Fails to Load

Issue: LDAP Proxy fails to load while working with certificates that have a DNS with more than 45 characters. To fix this issue, the limit of DNS has been increased to 255 characters. (Bug 1114379)

passwdstore Utility Is Broken

Issue: The passwdstore utility has started using type-less case-insensitive DN from the version 9.0.x. Due to this, the passwdstore stores the user credentials without the cn and o attributes. When the proxy server tries to use the DN from the configuration file, an error message is displayed. (Bug 1024479)

LDAP Proxy Fails to Launch If the <if-ip-addr> Condition Element Is Present

Issue: LDAP Proxy fails to launch when the <if-ip-addr> condition element is present for the Replace String Policy configuration in the nlpconf.xml file. (Bug 1027387)
