Expanding on the Lightning Talk I gave at Mojoconf 2018, this is the outline for the Short talk I'm giving at London Perl Workshop. It's close to the Advent calendar post I'm writing for Joel.

Authenticating Mojolicious apps with LDAP


Named Routes



Not the solution you were looking for.


Load config information either using YAML or Mojolicious::Plugin::Config

Authenticating via LDAP

  • connect to LDAP server
  • search for the user to authenticate
  • bind as the user using the supplied password
  • act on the success or failure returned by the LDAP server

Active Directory (yet another LDAP server) may require you to authenticate to connect to the server.


Store the session in a cookie or use MojoX::Sessions to store them server side.
