Thanks for the confirmation regarding secure connections and the clarification 
regarding dsgw. I will focus on other alternatives. I would be interested in 
exploring cli tools and the API. Any resources to which you could point me 
would be appreciated. Thanks for the help.

Yes, because you have:

client -> https -> ldaps

So you have to protect each stage of the communication.

While I understand your desire, the dsgw software hasn't been touched
by us in a long time - and I highly suspect it won't be supported for
much longer. Sadly though, as far as a "web tool" we've had some delays
building this up but it is on the way!

Instead for 1.4.x we plan to release better cli tools with much more
functionality that should be able to do everything you want. 

If you want to know more about these tools and our API for server
interaction, I'm happy to provide you resources about this to help you
and get it fit for your requirements,

Hope that helps,
