A CHICKEN egg implementing LDAP bind for authentication purposes using the OpenLDAP library. This is not a complete binding to the OpenLDAP library and only covers the authentication use-case.
Requires OpenLDAP / libldap and liblber to be installed.
- (ldap-initialize uris #!optional (version 3)) procedure
Initializes the LDAP library and opens a connection to an LDAP server. Returns an ldap-connection record.
- (ldap-bind conn dn pass) procedure
Attempts to bind to a dn using the given password. The conn argument is a connection record returned from ldap-initialize. Returns #t if the bind succeeded, #f otherwise.
- (ldap-unbind conn) procedure
Terminate the current association, and free the resources contained in the connecction record. After calling ldap-unbind the connection to the LDAP server is closed and the connection record becomes invalid.
(use ldap-bind) (define ld (ldap-initialize "ldaps://example.com")) (if (ldap-bind ld "uid=testuser,cn=users,dc=example,dc=com" "password") (print "Welcome, authenticated user!") (print "Invalid Credentials")) ;; or, using list syntax for a base dn: (define base-dn '((cn "users") (dc "example") (dc "com"))) (if (ldap-bind ld (cons '(uid "testuser") base-dn) "password") (print "Welcome, authenticated user!") (print "Invalid Credentials")) (ldap-unbind ld)
Original implementation work by Moritz Heidkamp, updated to latest APIs and released with just the ldap-bind feature by Caolan McMahon (with kind permission).
