There is growing interest in a standard way of providing access to personal information (e.g. "white pages" data) and simplifying the administration and management of this data. LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is poised to be the solution to these problems. Since the IETF recently approved the version 3 of the LDAP protocol it is now rapidly growing in importance as major companies seek to make their proprietary networks available as LDAP servers. Implementing LDAP comes at a time when programmers everywhere consider LDAP as the answer to their development needs.
Who is this book for?
This book is intended for programmers and system administrators who need to build LDAP clients and install LDAP servers. It will also appeal to that group of experienced web users who have heard about LDAP but want a definitive reference on the subject. The book, like LDAP itself, has not been written with any specific programming language or operating system in mind, though it makes extensive use of one of the LDAP-enabled servers currently available — Netscape's Directory Server version 4.0.
What does this book cover?
A very good and practical book on LDAP. Recommended.
