Overview#Service Connection Points (SCP) are objects in Microsoft Active Directory that hold information about services.
Services can publish information about their existence by creating serviceConnectionPoint objects in Microsoft Active Directory. Client applications use this information as a Discovery Mechanism and to connect to instances of the service.
ADAM/AD LDS is no exception to this. The serviceConnectionPoint object class is derived from the connectionPoint class. ServiceConnectionPoints in ADAM/AD LDS will contain some key attribute information that is needed for client application discovery.
