This one blocks as well.

There is no non-blocking API in PAM, hence correct nginx module to
use PAM for authentication is something impossible to write. And
LDAP client libraries out there are blocking too, so writing LDAP
authentication module isn't something simple.

Yep, using X-Accel-Redirect is a good way to handle any
needed authentication/authorization.

Alternatively, one may use auth request module:

I wrote it once tired reading questions about PAM/LDAP/whatever
authentication modules and various blocking solutions people write
and try to use. Compared to X-Accel-Redirect it is simplier for
general use.
