HP ALM using LDAP Auth requiring Encryption over HTTP

Hi All,

We are using HP ALM 11.52.724 on premise syncing our users via LDAP Authentication.

We are looking at automating this process and one question we have is around the security of this Auth and how it is 'secured'.

Can anyone advise whether the AD Credentials are in clear text and whether this is/or could be, encrytped over http?
I guesss there are 2 questions arising from this...
1). Can we set encrytion on the web server or ALM over http
2). Can we set encrytion on LDAP Authentication for over the network?

Look forward to your help.
