Directory Synchronization Overview
Directory Synchronization is a feature of a PGP Universal Server that allows an administrator to synchronize an LDAP directory with your PGP Universal Server. Directory Synchronization allows you to assign different user polices to specific internal user groups. Directory Synchronization lets you do multiple things:
|Note: PGP Universal Server supports LDAPv2, and LDAPS. You can use any of a number of directories with PGP Universal Server, although directories that more closely conform to the OpenLDAP or X.500 standards will work best.|
Because you specify what type of LDAP directory you use, PGP Universal Server queries user information using only the necessary attributes, providing faster results when querying user information.
|Note: Microsoft Windows 2000/2003 Active Directory with Exchange Server has all required attributes. Other Directory Server and Email Server combinations might not have the necessary attributes.|
