Active Directory Service Interfaces is a technology created by Microsoft that provides a variety of network services, including:

  • LDAP-like directory services
  • Kerberos-based authentication
  • DNS-based naming and other network information

Using the same database, for use primarily in Windows environments, Active Directory also allows administrators to assign policies, deploy software, and apply critical updates to an organization. Active Directory stores information and settings in a central database.
