 $auth = Net::LDAP::Control::ProxyAuth->new( authzID => 'dn:cn=me,ou=people,o=myorg.com' );

 @args = ( base     => "cn=subnets,cn=sites,cn=configuration,$BASE_DN",
           scope    => "subtree",
           filter   => "(objectClass=subnet)",

DESCRIPTION

"Net::LDAP::Control::ProxyAuth" provides an interface for the creation and manipulation of objects that represent the "proxyauthorisationControl" as described by draft-weltman-ldapv3-proxy-XX.txt.  

CONSTRUCTOR ARGUMENTS

In addition to the constructor arguments described in Net::LDAP::Control the following are provided.
authzID
The authzID that is required. This is the identity we are requesting operations to use
proxyDN
In older versions of draft-weltman-ldapv3-proxy-XX.txt the value in the control and thus the constructor argument was a DN and was called "proxyDN". It served the same purpose as "authzID" in recent versions of "proxyauthorisationControl".

Please note: Unfortunately the OID and the encoding or the "proxyauthorisationControl" changed significantly in recent versions of draft-weltman-ldapv3-proxy-XX.txt. Net::LDAP::Control::ProxyAuth tries to cope with that situation and changes the OID and encoding used depending on the constructor argument.

With "proxyDN" as constructor argument the old OID and encoding are used, while with "authzID" as constructor argument the new OID and encoding are used. Using this logic servers supporting either OID can be handled correctly.  

METHODS

As with Net::LDAP::Control each constructor argument described above is also available as a method on the object which will return the current value for the attribute if called without an argument, and set a new value for the attribute if called with an argument.
