Getting in Touch with CardDAV

As you saw earlier, LDAP, while usable for email addresses and other contact info, is not always the best choice for many reasons, including that it’s kind of a pain to set up. So, a few years back, Apple and several other entities took the CalDAV concept and applied it to contacts. What they came up with was using the vCard format as the data store and, again, WebDAV as the transport mechanism. The result? CardDAV. The setup is identical to CalDAV, including my standard warning to use SSL (Figure 4.12).
