Using LDAP as backend storage for a DNS tree

I’m just on my way back from a meeting with Peter King, one of the lecturers at uni, and my new dissertation supervisor. He’s said yes to my project proposal for developing a solution which uses directory services over LDAP to store a DNS tree, properly integrating LDAP into DNS in such a way that you can use the full flexibility of LDAP to describe a network tree, and DNS will reflect that.

I’m still fleshing out the full project, and I’ve still got to actually write the proposal etc, but I’m hoping to set bounds on the core of the project and set out my goals for it, but it’s pretty exciting to see a project like this come to life from an idea I had a few days ago from a need with my server cluster.
