LDAP Libraries and APIs

The OpenLDAP Software is a well-known open source implementation of Lightweight Directory Access Protocol developed by the OpenLDAP Project. It provides not only a directory service implementation for Linux, Microsoft Windows and a number of other platforms, but also includes client tools for querying and modifying objects. Userbooster Light uses the libldap library from OpenLDAP for communicating with LDAP servers. It is reliable, supports SSL/TLS and capable of authenticating via the Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL). Userbooster Light also uses Windows API for Active Directory specific tasks.
