The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) (pronounced /ˈɛldæp/) is an application protocol for reading and editing directories over an IP network.[1] A directory is an organized set of records. For example, the telephone directory is an alphabetical list of persons and organizations, with each record having an address and phone number. A directory information tree often follows political, geographic, or organizational boundaries. LDAP directories often use Domain Name System (DNS) names for the highest levels. Deeper inside the directory might appear entries for people, departments, teams, printers, and documents.

The latest version of LDAP is Version 3, which is specified in a series of Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Standard Track Requests for comments (RFCs) as detailed in RFC 4510.
