When I look at an LDAP v3 bind request in the packet details pane under authentication: simple (0), I see simple: followed by a 20 digit number. What does this represent?

Thanks

I am referring to the 20 digit number.

I see simple: followed by a 20 digit number.

It's the password, ASCII encoded. You can see the 'decoded' password in the HEX view of the packet bytes.

You can probably find out from RFC 2251. In ASN1 it's defined as Simple ::= OCTET STRING and is probably an Authentication token.
