One possible solution is to have the main LDAP server addressable only
via STARTTLS and a non-SSL, read-only slave on a different host that's
visible only to your LAN.
Read up on the "syncrepl" directive for use in slapd.conf.
The slave could even exist in a VM hosted on the main LDAP server,
since it's a very lightweight service.
