The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, or LDAP , is an application protocol for querying and modifying directory services running over TCP/IP.

LDAP can be used to look up encryption certificates, pointers to printers and other services on a network, and provide "single sign on".

It can access information directories. It provides an online, fully indexed, fast-access white-pages directory service developed and freely distributed by the Regents of the University of Michigan.

LDAP is a relatively new standard that is used to standardize the query of address directories on the Internet.

This protocol helps manage information about authorized users on a network such as names, phone numbers, addresses, and what a user is.
