According to your link (
/jndi-ldap-gl.html), the only value for
is "ssl".

With Context.SECURITY_PROTOCOL="ssl" :
•it opens a secure SSL/TLS connexion if the serveur supports it
•it fails with a otherwise

With Context.SECURITY_PROTOCOL=any other word than "ssl", it opens a
simple connection (with no SSL/TLS)

So, with the standard factory (com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory) and
with "ssl" param, you use a SSL/TLS connexion or do nothing.

You can see a lot of details of your connection with the parameter and can see which version of TLS and cipher is
used by your connection. (see
