Identity and Access Management

Purdue ApacheDS LDAP


Apache Directory Server (also known as ApacheDS) is an embeddable LDAP directory server entirely written in Java. It is certified LDAPv3 by the Open Group, a vendor and technology-neutral industry consortium.

The Identity and Access Management Office (IAMO) maintains an ApacheDS server for authentication. For services that are unable to use CAS, the ApacheDS service provides LDAP authentication that is similar to the I2A2 LDAP service. In the case of ApacheDS, the service uses a highly configurable back-end that allows the account population to be tuned based on the application need. ApacheDS uses the standard inetOrgPerson schema.

Requesting Access

To obtain access to the ApacheDS LDAP Server, you will first need to fill out a Service Level Agreement (SLA) between your group and the IAMO. Once you have this filled out, forward the hard copy to: IAMO Director / ITAP / ROSS.

More Information about ApacheDS

Several useful pages on ApacheDS can be found on the Apache Software Foundation website.
