MetaDirectories using LDAP
Matt Coffey & Vinod Kutty
Tuesday October 24th at 7:00pm
College of DuPage Room SRC 2800(a,b,c)
Organizations typically maintain disjoint
repositories of data on users, assets,
applications, etc. that may be managed and
accessed using per-repository protocols and
APIs. A metadirectory presents a single view
of this data, and can help streamline
applications and business processes. The
speakers will present concepts and
implementation issues surrounding LDAP based
metadirectories, and how they may benefit
Matthew Coffey is a consultant with
Collective Technologies. He has worked on
several LDAP based meta directory
implementations for web authentication, mail
delivery and campus wide directory services.
Vinod Kutty is a consultant with Collective
Technologies, specializing in Solaris and
currently engaged at a startup company
working on development and systems
engineering issues. Prior to this, he played
a lead technical role in a team implementing
and refining an LDAP based Metadirectory for
a large investment bank with offices in 40
countries. This project resulted in annual
savings of over $600,000, and provided
numerous other benefits.
