NDSU Computer Science: Student Directory Project

Project Details

LDAP stands for lightweight directory access protocol. It is a set of protocols for accessing information directories. The NDSU Computer Science department currently uses LDAP directories to store information of user accounts, group membership, and access information. Our project is to develop a Client for the OpenLdap Server. An LdapClient is used to request and view LDAP entries from an LDAP Directory Server.
