LDAP vs Casbin: What are the differences?

LDAP: A lightweight directory access protocol. It is a mature, flexible, and well supported standards-based mechanism for interacting with directory servers. It’s often used for authentication and storing information about users, groups, and applications, but an LDAP directory server is a fairly general-purpose data store and can be used in a wide variety of applications; Casbin: An authorization library that supports access control models like ACL, RBAC, ABAC in Golang. In Casbin, an access control model is abstracted into a CONF file based on the PERM metamodel (Policy, Effect, Request, Matchers). So switching or upgrading the authorization mechanism for a project is just as simple as modifying a configuration. You can customize your own access control model by combining the available models.

LDAP and Casbin can be categorized as "User Management and Authentication" tools.

Casbin is an open source tool with 7.41K GitHub stars and 813 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Casbin's open source repository on GitHub.
