An LDAP to CardDav (1 way read) Phone Book Gateway for modern (business) phones.

Use case

Most modern (business) voice phones have the capability to do comfortable LDAP directory look-up like:

  • Directory search by alphabet letters
  • Reverse lookup for inbound calls
  • Reverse lookup by entering parts or the phone number

Unfortunately, most of the 'smaller' companies (i guess companies beyond 100 employee) don't have an 'enterprise' LDAP directory, much less than private persons.

Most of such companies do have something like a cloud address book, often based on WebDAV / CardDAV (i.e. Nextcloud, Ownlcoud, ...).

This is, where this Gateway might make your live easier (hopefully).

If this program get started on some kind of hardware (Windows, Mac, Linux, ???), it will do the following:

  1. Answer on LDAP requests from your voice phone(s)
  2. Ask your CardDAV (Nextcloud, Owncloud, ...) Server for the LDAP requested phone book entry
  3. Return the CardDAV query results, back as LDAP results to your phone.
