Net::LDAPS
use LDAP over an SSL connection

Net::LDAPS - use LDAP over an SSL connection


NAME

Net::LDAPS - use LDAP over an SSL connection


SYNOPSIS


 use Net::LDAPS;

 $ldaps = Net::LDAPS->new('myhost.example.com',

                          port => '10000',

                          verify => 'require',

                          capath => '/usr/local/cacerts/');

 # alternate way

 use Net::LDAP;

 $ldaps = Net::LDAP->new('ldaps://myhost.example.com:10000',

                         verify => 'require',

                         capath => '/usr/local/cacerts/');


DESCRIPTION

Communicate using the LDAP protocol to a directory server using an encrypted (SSL) network connection. This mechanism is non-standard but widely supported; consider using LDAPv3 with the standard TLS extension if possible (many servers do not support it yet.) See start_tls in the Net::LDAP manpage.

All the normal Net::LDAP methods can be used with a Net::LDAPS object; see the Net::LDAP manpage for details.


CONSTRUCTOR

new ( HOST [, OPTIONS ] )
Create a new connection. HOST is the hostname to contact. OPTIONS is a number of key/value pairs. See new in the Net::LDAP manpage for details.


SEE ALSO

the Net::LDAP manpage, the IO::Socket::SSL manpage


BUGS

You cannot have more than one LDAPS connection at any one time, due to restrictions in the underlying Net::SSLeay code.
