LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol)

LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is used by many directory services including Active Directory as a way of querying its resources, for example searching for a user account in order to authenticate it. It also allows different directories to communicate with one another more widely. It’s incredibly fortunate that a guy called Tim Howes invented LDAP in the 1990s because without it Active Directory and networking using alternative directory services would involve a lot more stress and swearing.
