Net::LDAPS(3) use LDAP over an SSL connection


use Net::LDAPS;
$ldaps = Net::LDAPS->new('',
port => '10000',
verify => 'require',
capath => '/usr/local/cacerts/');
# alternate way
use Net::LDAP;
$ldaps = Net::LDAP->new('ldaps://',
verify => 'require',
capath => '/usr/local/cacerts/');


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.


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.


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