Is there a better newer technology than Linux NIS?


Linux-NIS was a project way back when to have a single linux user database and any other computer on the network could install a client and be able to use the database of users and passwords etc, allowing for a unified system. It was developed off of Sun Microsystems yp according to the web page http://linux-nis.org

This project unfortunatly was last updated over 10 years ago. Is there a new project which has replaced this? I love the concept of only having ONE list of users and passwords for our network systems and therefore making our linux network much easier to maintain, however I cant seem to find anyone working on a similar project (but current).

Im currently running Centos as my main server and a combo of Fedora, LinuxMint and Ubuntu as clients, so i would need something that had both RPM based and Debian Based clients.

Anyway thanks for the advice.


EDIT: Oh.... so I found LDAP.... NVM guys... im fine.
