The Enterprise Directory (ED) is the enterprise system of record for identity and access management (IAM) for Virginia Tech. ED supports the following IAM capabilities:
- Directory services
- Single sign-on
The Enterprise Directory exposes two primary protocols for integration:
- LDAP - High-performance read-only services (authentication, authorization, directory searches)
- HTTP - REST API for read-write operations
Single sign-on services are provided by the Login Service that is built on top of the LDAP protocol interface.
