"In this Article we will explore LDAP and its implementations
using our favourite OS Linux."
"There is a lot of literature about LDAP out there so I wont
repeat it again here, neither will I talk about advanced LDAP
terms, schemas, v2 versus v3 difference etc. In fact i do not know
much about them. Instead I will try to explain in very simple
words about what LDAP is, what its benefits and how we can use
"I am not an LDAP expert. In fact I am an LDAP beginner. I will
basically just write here what I do with LDAP and how. I will try
not to confuse you like I was for a very long time."
"LDAP stands for (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) and is
a directory service, very similar to the directories on the file
system that we are used to and also similar to the telephone book
that we use to lookup phone numbers, and also network directory
services such as SUN's NIS (Network Information Service), DNS
(Domain Name Service) , and also to the tree that you see in your (
or your neighbor's) garden etc."
