Directory Authentication with LDAP

60 minute intermediate seminar


In an enterprise environment information is often stored in a directory service - whether ActiveDirectory, OpenDirectory or any other - but it can be difficult to access that information. We can use LDAP to integrate authentication and authorization from that directory service into our applications. This session will tell you everything you need to know. Learn the history of LDAP, why it's different from other storage systems and see how it can be used to easily fetch information and handle authorization.
