    Passport-LDAP

    Passport strategy for authenticating against an OpenLDAP server.

    This module lets you authenticate against an OpenLDAP server in your Node.js applications. By plugging into Passport, LDAP authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.

    Install

    $ npm install passport-ldap
    

    Usage

    Configure Strategy

    The LDAP authentication strategy authenticates requests by delegating to the given ldap server using the openldap protocol.

    The strategy requires a verify callback which accepts a user profile entry from the directory, and then calls the done callback supplying a user.

    passport.use(new LDAPStrategy({
        url: 'ldap://0.0.0.0:1389',
        base: 'o=example',
        search: {
          filter: '(&(l=Seattle)(email=*@foo.com))',
         }
      },
      function(profile, done) {
        return done(null, profile);
      }
    ));
    

    Authenticate Requests

    Use passport.authenticate(), specifying the 'ldap' strategy, to authenticate requests.

    For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

    app.get('/auth/login',
      passport.authenticate('facebook'));
    
    app.post('/auth/ldap',
      passport.authenticate('ldap', {
        successRedirect: '/',
        failureRedirect: '/auth/login/'
      })
    );
