There shouldn't be the need to read the password field before you change it. You
should just need to bind, then issue the password change extended operation.
If *must* read the userPassword field, I strong advise that you do not make this
You should create a service account (simpleSecurityObject), and give only that dn
an aci with read access to the hash.
I still *strongly* advise against this, as you should not need to your
application to behave like this to change a password.
