Can Domino be used as the LDAP directory for non-Domino applications?

I have a requirement in LDAP. Currently all Web users are authenticating via Domino Directory. When the LDAP client sends a username and password to Domino LDAP Service, Domino LDAP Service should be able to return whether the username and password are correct.

I don't need to create a username and password again for each application, I can use Domino Directory as the primary directory and use the same username and password for all the applications.

In the short term, I need to use Domino Directory as the directory service for third-party applications. I know that for Web authentication I can use other directories to authenticate, rather than using Domino Directory. Is it possible to implement this in the reverse order? Any help is highly appreciated.
Domino is an LDAP standard-compliant server, so there isn't any reason this shouldn't work. As long as your other apps are set to look to the Domino server for LDAP authentication, you should be OK.
