Apache Directory is an open source project of the Apache Software Foundation. The Apache Directory Server, originally written by Alex Karasulu, is an embeddable directory server entirely written in Java. It was certified LDAPv3-compatible by The Open Group in 2006.[2][3] Besides LDAP, the server supports other protocols as well, and a Kerberos server.[4]

There exist these subprojects:

  • Apache Directory Studio - is an LDAP browser/editor for data, schema, LDIF, and DSML written in an Eclipse-based framework.
  • Apache eSCIMo - is a Java-based implementation of the SCIM protocol.
  • Apache Fortress - is a standards-based authorization system.
  • Apache Kerby - is a Kerberos implementation written in Java.
  • Apache LDAP API - is an SDK for directory access in Java.
  • Apache Mavibot - is a database application for Java applications.
