Directory services facilitate access to information organized under a variety of frameworks and applications. The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol is a promising technology that provides access to directory information using a data structure similar to that of the X.500 protocol. IBM Tivoli, Novell, Sun, Oracle, Microsoft, and many other vendors feature LDAP-based implementations. The technology's increasing popularity is due both to its flexibility and its compatibility with existing applications.
