About the author (2003)

Brian Arkills works as a software engineer at the University of Washington, where he performs systems administration, analysis, and project management. While at Stanford University, Brian used LDAP technology to extend Stanford's existing Netscape Directory Services to Microsoft clients via Microsoft Active Directory. In doing so, he found that there were no quality books that provided a basic introduction to the technology. He wrote this guide to fill that need.
