The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol provides access to X.500 directory

be stand-alone part of a distributed directory service. This API
supports LDAP over TCP, LDAP over SSL,

>> what is LDAP for
In simple term, it's a centralize database to store data where it can be reached from anywhere from anyone or with access restriction to the info.

Most TCP applications are not LDAP-aware, but LDAP can be added to extend the capabilities. As I said, centralize database, you can keep all .htaccess password, ftp logins, qmail account info, address book and all kind of stuffs to LDAP.
