What is LDAP?
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is a set of protocols used for accessing online directory services. By using TCP/IP, LDAP allows clients on multiple platforms (i.e., Windows, Macintosh, Unix) to access centralized directory services.
At Indiana University, UITS currently does not provide an official LDAP service. However, a Microsoft LDAP implementation is in service to support IU's Exchange email systems via the Outlook email client. To access this directory with other email clients, see At IU, what is the Global Address List?
