Directory Services

Directory Services is a networking phrase that refers to the way a network identifies, organizes and provides access to all of the resources within a network. Directory services enables the networked resources to be accessible to users and applications while also eliminating the need for a user or application on the network to know where another resource is located or how it's connected to the network.

From LDAP and Open Directory to Apache DS and Netware Directory Service (NDS) and more, our directory services dictionary offers a glossary of key terms you need to know.
