RFC 4515 - Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): String Representation of Search Filters.
ldap.filter module defines the following functions:
This function escapes characters in assertion_value which are special in LDAP filters. You should use this function when building LDAP filter strings from arbitrary input. escape_mode means: If
0only special chars mentioned in RFC 4515 are escaped. If
1all NON-ASCII chars are escaped. If
