Yeah, the SSSD supports LDAP for identity lookups, LDAP and Kerberos as
authentication providers. So we want to set up an LDAP server providing
schema rfc2307 (for providing users and for doing LDAP simple bind
authentication) It needs to provide access both over LDAP/TLS and LDAPS.
Beyond that, we need a Kerberos KDC set up with user principals the same
as those provided by the LDAP server.

In a separate email thread, someone asked if FreeIPA would be acceptable
for this setup. It would make an excellent second data point, but
FreeIPA uses rfc2307bis for its schema, rather than rfc2307. This will
require a more detailed setup for this test than the basic case. I am
currently communicating with the authconfig developer to determine
whether we will be able to add the rfc2307bis option in time for the
Test Day. If so, a FreeIPA server would also be an excellent idea.
