The OSI-DS group works on issues relating to building an OSI Directory
Service using X.500 and its deployment on the Internet. Whilst this
group is not directly concerned with piloting, the focus is practical,
and technical work needed as a pre-requisite to deployment of an open
Directory will be considered.
Liaisons should be established as appropriate. In particular: RARE WG3, NIST, CCITT/ISO IEC, North American Directory Forum.
Maintain a Schema for the OSI Directory on the Internet.
Study the relationship of the OSI Directory to the Domain Name Service.
Definition of a Technical Framework for Provision of a Directory Infrastructure on the Internet, using X.500. This task may later be broken into subtasks. A series of RFCs will be produced.
