Writing an LDAP interface?

P: n/a

I have a need to allow other LDAP-compliant customers that want to integrate
thier own single-signon to be able to map to accounts in my SQL2K database.
Since they are using LDAP - I'm assuming I'd need to write a listener that
responds with what they are looking for.

Is there something that already does this? If not, what are the security
implications - how can I verify they are who they say they are - and stop
random Internet vagrants from querying our user database?

Any ideas?

Anyone at all? Even the general area I should be looking?

At the moment I think it is only done in C++ and Java, but you can
check out the shibboleth project at
