I'd like a LDAP-possibility for setting up a bunch of users. Having small teams that work at client's sites and are put together differently each time, it would be nice if the mapping could be done with their actual windows username and password.
The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol is an application protocol for accessing and maintaining distributed directory information services over an Internet Protocol (IP) network. LDAP is defined in terms of ASN.1 and transmitted using BER.Directory services may provide any organized set of records, often with a hierarchical structure, such as a corporate electronic mail directory. Similarly, a telephone directory is a list of subscribers with an address and a phone number.LDAP is specified in a series of Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Standard Track Requests for comments (RFCs). The latest version is Version 3, published as RFC 4510.
