Not necessarily. Like I said it depends on your security model. Personally I
use -x myself because I always use either tls or ssl ldap connections. This
way my password is encrypted at all times. Ofcourse if you were worried about
your password traversing the network at ALL then you could use the mechanisms
like cram / digest that make one time hashes and send that instead thus
mitigating the risk in that respect. Its about what fits your security
requirements more, for most people though, -x with tls / ssl is fine.
