 ## Characteristics
 **LDAP** servers are fast for retrievals, having been designed specifically for this purpose.
But modifications are costly. These characteristics must be understood when writing applications
that use an **LDAP** server for data storage.
 
-Each entry is associated with a location within it's corresponding **D**irectory **I**nformation
**T**ree, and we use what's called a **D**istinguished **N**ame (or **Dn**) to describe this
address. The base entry is known as the suffix, and all entries beneath it are collectively
known as its **DIT**.

 ## Programming 
 
-**LDAP** is a part of the **IT** landscape and so it's unavoidable that we must deal with
it. **LDAP** servers are used to manage authentication, authorizations, demographic info and
more. It's very likely that you will have to write some code to access data over **LDAP**,
and existing **API**s aren't quite up to the task. This **LDAP API** has been designed to
simplify usage.

API** has been designed to simplify usage and ensure proper interaction with the server.
