Australian telecommunications provider Telstra has announced that IBM has licensed its LDAP/X.500 Directory Server software.
The software implements the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) for Internet directory services, and will allow IBM to market applications for building email addresses or White Pages-type directories for finding World Wide Web sites, Telstra says.
One version of the software, currently used in Australia as an electronic White Pages directory, contains over 8 million records, the company says.
The IBM Telstra LDAP/X.500 Directory Server is available now, and runs on IBM's RS/6000 workstations under AIX, its version of the Unix operating system. Pricing was not available.
