Directories have become an important component of the enterprise security and identity management middleware. This paper describes a novel filter based replication model for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directories. Instead of replicating entire subtrees from a Directory Information Tree (DIT), only entries matching a filter specification are replicated. Efficient algorithms for selecting such filters, keeping them synchronized with the master copy and for using them to answer
