Serviços de diretório (e.g., LDAP) são frequentemente utilizados para manter informações sensíveis (e.g., dados e credenciais de usuários) em sistemas críticos como serviços de controle de domínio, servidores DNS, mecanismos de controle de acesso e infra-estrutura de chaves públicas. Este artigo apresenta a primeira arquitetura e mecanismos para prover serviços de diretórios tolerante a falhas e intrusões. Para atingir este objetivo são empregadas diferentes técnicas de sistemas distribuídos, dependabilidade e segurança. A viabilidade da solução proposta é demonstrada através da implementação e avaliação de um protótipo que utiliza protocolos e técnicas avançadas de tolerância a falhas e intrusões. Os resultados demonstram que a solução proposta é boa o suficiente para suportar as demandas de infra-estruturas de TI com mais de 136K usuários.
