      Description

      Enable LDAP Authentication for your Ops Manager Project has the phrase:

      "SSL is not required for use with LDAP authentication"

      Could we replace this with a warning or at least informational box? Perhaps something more like:

      "Please note that LDAP by default is not encrypted and sends credentials (username and password) in plaintext, which could compromise them on insecure networks. Use of SSL/TLS with LDAP (LDAPS) to encrypt authentication is strongly recommended. Many modern directory services, such as Active Directory or Active Directory Domain Controllers, require encrypted communications."
