Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, LDAP, is the mechanism that makes universally interoperable directory services applications possible. The network directory market is emerging as one of the most important, with LDAP playing a central role in all directory solutions. Although no single document specifies LDAP entirely, there are many Requests for Comments (RFCs) that describe LDAP and how it works. This book collects these essential documents in a single printed volume, and adds an introduction and extensive index. This means you no longer have to search through countless RFCs to find the correct answer to your LDAP question all current RFCs are compiled in a single book, with an index that makes specific information about LDAP even easier to locate.

Every current RFC describing or affecting an aspect of LDAP is collected in this volume, including RFCs formally defining LDAP, describing LDAPs interactions with other protocols, and informational documents that explain how LDAP operates. If you buy one LDAP reference, this is the one to choose. Written by members of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and its steering group, the IESG, this compilation is the most complete and authoritative LDAP reference available.
