Just wondering out loud but should usercertificate be excluded

showing that a bogus value is in there?

I think it is a good pointer that something has gone wrong with the
certificate. Another way would be to print 'Invalid certificate'
instead of it similar to what Apache LDAP Browser does.
We can return a warning message that something with certificates is


And you should log it at error log level, because it is error

Is the data from LDAP actually invalid?  It should not be possible

Is there a full traceback for the original error of #5797? What is

A cert can get in several different ways. IPA sure tries hard not to allow bad certs but I guess they can happen:

$ ldapmodify -Y GSSAPI
SASL/GSSAPI authentication started
SASL username: ad...@greyoak.com
SASL data security layer installed.
dn: krbprincipalname=cert/slithy.greyoak....@greyoak.com,cn=services,cn=accounts,dc=greyoak,dc=com
changetype: modify
add: usercertificate
usercertificate: foo

modifying entry "krbprincipalname=cert/slithy.greyoak....@greyoak.com,cn=services,cn=accounts,dc=greyoak,dc=com"

That is exactly how I was reproducing this issue.

Added is the patch that adds error message and logs properly.
