Using LDAP Directory Service

LDAP (lightweight directory access protocol) provides an open directory access protocol that runs over TCP/IP. GemFire XD can authenticate users against an existing LDAP directory service in your enterprise.

An LDAP directory service can quickly authenticate a user's name and password. Examples of LDAP service providers include the 389 Directory Server and OpenLDAP.

The runtime library provided with the Java Development Kit (JDK) includes libraries that enable you to access an LDAP directory service. For more information about Java support for LDAP, see:
