The LDAP Certified program was defined by The Open Group’s Directory Interoperability Forum. It signifies guaranteed conformance of directory
servers to Version 3 of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).
The precise requirements are detailed in the LDAP Certified Product Standard.
Support for optional features of the product standard is documented for each
