Description (partial)

This is a feature request to have the ability for Provisioning Extensions Active Directory user import to use LDAP_AUTH_NEGOTIATE binding instead of SIMPLE.

The use of SIMPLE binds are a security risk as the credentials are passed of the wire in clear text.

The use of LDAP_AUTH_NEGOTIATE also allows the binding to Active Directory GC/LDAP services using a user account of a trusted forest. Some customer may have complex Active Directory structures and trusts, and a change in the LDAP bind mechanism would allow for a simpler configuration for PE user imports.

LDAP Simple binds will fail when utilizing trusted forest user accounts.
