LDAP Processes
We are considering an implementation of an LDAP client and wonder if someone
has any experience with LDAP security issues - like controlling the users
and groups that are authorized to read, modify or otherwise work with the
information.

Can LDAP offer secure solutions while managing directory accesses?

Any information on LDAP processing would be helpful to me.

Thanks!

Rick, Access can be controlled by SIDs, ACLs,group policies, and
through object ownership, and delegation. On Windows 2000,
administration can be done from the Active Directoy Users option in the
Administrative Tools group. Additionally, DPA, SSL, and Kerberos can be
used. There is a good amount of information in, "Mastering Active
Directory", author Robert King, Sybex. It has a chapter on "Ensuring
Security in an Active Directory environment." HTH Phil
