Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)

A protocol for accessing on-line directory services. LDAP was defined by the IETF to encourage adoption of X.500 directories. The Directory Access Protocol (DAP) was seen as too complex for simple Internet clients to use. LDAP defines a relatively simple protocol for updating and searching directories running over TCP/IP.
