Appendix B. Overview of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol and Microsoft's Active Directory

In This Appendix

Microsoft's Active Directory (AD) is useful for storing information that often needs to be looked up on a network. The AD extends the concept of a directory to include storing information about not just files on a computer, but all kinds of useful information in a networked environment. In this appendix, you learn about the pre-history of lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP), how to use LDAP, and Microsoft's implementation of directory services. You see what actual user and computer accounts look like in the directory.
