LDAP Extensions and Future Directions Checklists
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) has three well-defined mechanisms for extending the core protocol: controls, extended operations, and Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL) mechanisms. In this chapter we describe each of these extension methods, as well as some of the extensions supported by Netscape Directory Server 6, and we tell you how you can use these extensions via command-line utilities and in your applications. We also describe where LDAP standards are headed in the future.
