This document defines support for the Authentication Request Control 
and the Authentication Response Control. Controls are an LDAP 
protocol version 3 extension, to allow passing arbitrary control 
information along with a standard request to a server, and to receive 
arbitrary information back with a standard result. The Authentication 
Request Control may be submitted by a client in a bind request if 
authenticating with version 3 of the LDAP protocol. In the LDAP 
server's bind response, it may then include an Authentication 
Response Control. The response control contains the identity assumed 
by the client. This is useful when there is a mapping step or other 
indirection during the bind, so that the client can be told what LDAP 
identity was granted. Client authentication with certificates is the 
primary situation where this applies. Also, some SASL authentication 
mechanisms may not involve the client explicitly providing a DN, or 
may result in an authorization identity which is different from the 
authentication identity provided by the client [AUTH].

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
