      Description

      Currently, for a MongoDB server to respond to LDAP authentication, it must have an instance of saslauthd running locally. Unfortunately, per Project Cyrus' documentation, saslauthd cannot be compiled on Windows. MongoDB should provide this functionality by consuming the native Windows APIs in order to respond to LDAP authentication requests itself, without an external dependency.

      In order to get out of the saslauthd dependency native LDAP authentication should be implemented.
