An LDAP server is meant for frequent queries and infrequent updates. OpenLDAP is one of the most popular options for implementing a centralized directory server. Since LDAP servers are used for many different purposes—including storage for DNS, centralized authentication accounts (POSIX account), shared calendars, shared address books, and more—their authentication needs to be secure.
In the IT world, where a myriad of applications are available, remembering the username and password of every account is arduous. Thankfully, password synchronization empowers users to log in to each application using a single username and password. ADSelfService Plus makes it easy to set up password synchronization; all you have to do is configure ADSelfService Plus with the applications you're using. Once this is done, whenever a password is changed in ADSelfService Plus that change will be replicated across all connected applications.
The following section will take you through the steps needed to configure password synchronization for an OpenLDAP server using ADSelfService Plus.
