LDAP

LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is a software communication protocol that enables you to locate organizations, individuals, and other resources such as files and devices on the public Internet or a corporate intranet. A common use of LDAP is to provide a central location in which to store usernames and passwords. This allows many different applications and services to connect to the LDAP server to validate users.
