I think the closest you will get is LDAP.

Active Directory is a feature of Windows 2000 and Windows XP. It is a centralized service for managing otherwise distributed directory services. I recently read somewhere that Mandrake Linux 9.1 now has something similar to Active Directory. My experience with networking under Windows 2000 and XP is somewhat limited so I will not attempt to define what it is beyond that.
