- Lightweight Directory Access Protocol. An implementation of the industry
standard X.500 directory protocol developed
for PCs and the internet. Unlike X.500, LDAP is designed for IP, has a small
footprint, is simple to implement and is faster and less network-intensive
than X.500. Also abbreviated to "LDap".
