To use SSL with Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) you must obtain an SSL certificated, put the certificate in the personal store of the ADAM service, and verify that SSL is working with ADAM.
Refer to Microsoft's web site for the latest updates to these procedures.
Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) is an LDAP-compliant directory service. ADAM runs as a service on the Windows operating system. It can be fully customized and distributed as an application component or used as a stand-alone LDAP directory. ADAM uses the same technologies found on Active Directory Domain Controllers (including replication and delegation features) and has it own administration and customization features.
