From Linux.com: After deploying the basics of LDAP from the first part, now you dive into practical usage
of LDAP in the wild. Some of the biggest ISPs authenticate everything they can against
their LDAP trees, starting with RADIUS (Remote Authentication DIalin User Service),
going over to the complete employee index, up the authentication of the firewalls and
SecureID cards. Each of these LDAP trees are big. Searches take time before matches
are returned. A service like RADIUS runs fast into a timeout, so think about this before
you plan your LDAP tree.
