       Net::SSLGlue::LDAP - proper certificate checking for ldaps in Net::LDAP


           use Net::SSLGlue::LDAP;
           local %Net::SSLGlue::LDAP = ( SSL_verifycn_name => $hostname_in_cert );
           my $ldap = Net::LDAP->new( $hostname, capath => ... );


       Net::SSLGlue::LDAP modifies Net::LDAP so that it does proper certificate checking using
       the "ldap" SSL_verify_scheme from IO::Socket::SSL.

       Because Net::LDAP does not have a mechanism to forward arbitrary parameters for the
       construction of the underlying socket these parameters can be set globally when including
       the package, or with local settings of the %Net::SSLGlue::LDAP::SSLopts variable.

       All of the "SSL_*" parameters from IO::Socket::SSL can be used; the following parameter is
       especially useful:

           Usually the name given as the hostname in the constructor is used to verify the
           identity of the certificate. If you want to check the certificate against another name
           you can specify it with this parameter.

       "SSL_ca_path", "SSL_ca_file" for IO::Socket::SSL can be set with the "capath" and "cafile"
       parameters of Net::LDAP::new and "SSL_verify_mode" can be set with "verify", but the
       meaning of the values differs ("none" is 0, e.g. disable certificate verification).
