Understanding LDAP Authentication

EFT supports using an LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) directory service for authenticating users. A typical LDAP directory service is a simple network-accessible database in which user account lists are stored and includes information about those users and the privileges assigned to each user. LDAP support on EFT allows you to authenticate users through connection to LDAP servers such as Novell eDirectory server, OpenLDAP, Sun ONE Server, Microsoft’s Active Directory server, and Tivoli Access Manager.
