The primary goal of this middleware project was to implement authenticated and differentially authorized services to a wide variety of systems. The following services are currently implemented using the KerDAP API and under management of the USMS:
LDAP directory services were also heavily leveraged as a component of the clustering and high-availability strategies implemented in the data center. The most notable example of this is the use of IMAP and IMSP redirection systems. LDAP support was added to the open-source perdition4 software as an alternative ``database'' for determining which server implements the IMAP message store and IMSP accounts for a user with email services. The mail destination attribute, which serves as the source for IMAP and IMSP redirections, also provides the basis for mail routing through the LDAP-enabled sendmail hubs which handle incoming mail for all organizational units serviced by this solution.
