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 Net::LDAP.

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

SEE ALSO

Net::LDAP, IO::Socket::SSL  

BUGS

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