What does it do?

This extension enables import/update/deletion of users and groups (frontend, backend or both) from a LDAP-directory and provides Single Sign-On (SSO) for frontend users. These features make it the perfect choice when deploying TYPO3 as an intranet CMS.

In case the network topology makes it useful, this extension is able to work with multiple LDAP server configurations, with a priority order based on the manual sorting of configuration records.

This extension is known to work with OpenLDAP and Active Directory (various versions).

Please consult the Frequently Asked Questions for additional information.
