    OpenLDAP, which is a suite of Lightweight Directory Access Protocol
    servers, clients, utilities and development tools.

    <from the website>
    LDAP is a lightweight alternative to the X.500 Directory Access Protocol
    (DAP) for use on the Internet. It uses TCP/IP stack verses the overly
