OpenLDAP.

LDAP was designed to provide access to the X.500 Directory without incurring the resource requirements of the Directory Access Protocol (DAP).

RFC 1777:

This protocol is specifically targeted at simple management applications and browser applications that provide simple read/write interactive access to the X.500 Directory, and is intended to be a complement to the DAP itself. Key aspects of LDAP are:

  1. Protocol elements are carried directly over TCP or other transport, bypassing much of the session/presentation overhead.
  2. Many protocol data elements are encoding as ordinary strings (e.g.,Distinguished Names).
  3. A lightweight BER encoding is used to encode all protocol elements.
