10 Easy Steps To Setup OpenLDAP

OpenLDAP is a free, open source implementation of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) developed by the OpenLDAP Project. It is released under its own BSD-style license called the OpenLDAP Public License. LDAP is a platform independent protocol. LDAP is also used to store your credentials in a network security system and retrieve it with your password and a decrypted key giving you access to the services. The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol is a directory service protocol that runs on a layer above the TCP/IP stack. LDAP is referenced as lightweight because it is a smaller and easier protocol which was derived from the X.500 DAP (Directory Access Protocol) defined in the OSI network protocol stack. Lastly, LDAP is a software protocol for enabling anyone to locate organizations, individuals, and other resources such as files and devices in a network, whether on the public Internet or on a corporate intranet.
