Abstract

A Directory Service is a centralized service used to locate and access resources on a network. For the purposes of this chapter, a directory service is used to authenticate to various resources on the network and authorize a user or device to access those resources. The most widely used directory service is Microsoft’s Active Directory, so most of this chapter is dedicated to Active Directory.
