Openldap is the open source ldap server and toolset. This is what provides us here at Netsoc DIT our central authentication system and directory of users/groups etc (meaning you can log into any of our systems with the same password).
Howard Chu is primarily known for openldap however he has contributed to various other open source projects such as gcc, make, mozilla and screen to name a few. You can take a look at his page here http://highlandsun.com/hyc/
