Introduction to LDAP: Provisioning, Managing, and Integrating
Learn how to deploy and manage an enterprise-class LDAP service
This introductory class will give you the tools you need to competently deploy and manage an enterprise-class LDAP service. We will use extensive demos to cover the structure and vocabulary of the hierarchical LDAP database; standards and best practices for provisioning and integration; migration from other authentication systems, including NIS; integration with the Linux name service switch; and integration with several popular open source applications, including Apache, Samba, and Postfix.
Particular emphasis is given to understanding the concepts underlying LDAP, and translating those concepts into effective integration with client-facing network services.
