User Attributes - Inside Active Directory. Lightweight Directory Access Protocol. The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP; /ˈɛldæp/) is an open, vendor-neutral, industry standard application protocol for accessing and maintaining distributed directory information services over an Internet Protocol (IP) network.[1] Directory services play an important role in developing intranet and Internet applications by allowing the sharing of information about users, systems, networks, services, and applications throughout the network.[2] As examples, directory services may provide any organized set of records, often with a hierarchical structure, such as a corporate email directory.

Similarly, a telephone directory is a list of subscribers with an address and a phone number. LDAP is specified in a series of Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Standard Track publications called Request for Comments (RFCs), using the description language ASN.1. The latest specification is Version 3, published as RFC 4511. History[edit] LDAP Attributes. Properties Active Directory Users Computers Distinguished name.

Programs like VBScript (WSH), CSVDE and LDIFDE rely on these LDAP attributes to create or modify objects in Active Directory. For example, when you bulk import users you will include the LDAP attributes: dn and sAMAccountName. Where Are We With Federated Identity? Topic Description By David S.

Where Are We With Federated Identity?

Linthicum, CEO, Linthicum Group, LLC , 06/05/2005 Print this article Email this article Talk Back! Write to Editor Since the advent of Web services, and other distributed computing standards for that matter, we’ve been wrestling with the notion of identity and how to manage it. With the increasing interest in identity management, so has risen the need for standards to better define this space. Who Are You? So, why do we need identity management? Identity is important in the growth of sensitive data and confidential relationships online. Today, we use managed identities, including different user names, passwords, and other identifying attributes.

The number of identities that we have creates a challenge. Federated identity, including supporting standards, such as those from OASIS and the Liberty Alliance project are defining mechanisms that organizations may employ to share identity information between domains.
