You need to bind to the directory so that you can test the password. The password is not stored. Only the hash is stored. The hash can only be viewed if your user DN has the correct priviledge.

The code example below connects to an LDAP(S) directory using an application DN, looks up the full user DN based on their uid and then binds using the user DN and their password to check if it is OK.

#! /usr/bin/perl use strict; #http://search.cpan.org/~gbarr/perl-ldap-0.30/lib/Net/LDAP.pod use Net::LDAPS; use Net::LDAP; my $host = "myhost:389"; my $ldaps = 0; my $adminDn = "cn=myapp, ou=applications, o=MyOrg"; my $adminPwd = "password"; my $searchBase = "ou=people, o=MyOrg"; my $userdn = testGuid ("myGUID", "password"); if ($userdn) { print "$userdn checks out!\n"; } sub getUserDn { my $ldap; my $guid = shift; my $dn; my $entry; if ($ldaps) { $ldap = Net::LDAPS->new($host, verify=>'none') or die "$@"; } else { $ldap = Net::LDAP->new($host, verify=>'none') or die "$@"; + } my $mesg = $ldap->bind ($adminDn, password=>"$adminPwd"); $mesg->code && return undef; $mesg = $ldap->search(base => $searchBase, filter => "uid=$guid" ) +; $mesg->code && return undef; $entry = $mesg->shift_entry; if ($entry) { $dn = $entry->dn; $entry->dump; } $ldap->unbind; return $dn; } sub testGuid { my $ldap; my $guid = shift; my $userPwd = shift; my $userDn = getUserDn ($guid); return undef unless $userDn; if ($ldaps) { $ldap = Net::LDAPS->new($host, verify=>'none') or die "$@"; } else { $ldap = Net::LDAP->new($host, verify=>'none') or die "$@"; + } my $mesg = $ldap->bind ($userDn, password=>"$userPwd"); if ($mesg->code) { # Bad Bind print $mesg->error . "\n"; return undef; } $ldap->unbind; return $userDn; }

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
