LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is an internet protocol used to check data from a server. It is an open protocol which is also used to store as well as retrieve information from directory services, specifically X.500 based directory services. LDAP either runs on TCP/IP or other connection oriented transfer services.
