Technical Summary

   The Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) identifies
   users by use of JID (Jabber IDs).  Lightweight Directory Access
   Protocol (LDAP) enables provision of a white pages service with
   schema relating to users and support for internet protocols.  This
   specification defines schema to enable XMPP JIDs to be associated
   with objects in an LDAP directory so that this information can be
   used with white pages applications.

Working Group Summary

   This document was not considered by any WG, as there are no active
   LDAP or XMPP WGs at the moment. However it was reviewed by
   both LDAP and XMPP experts.

Document Quality

   NATO and UK MoD representatives expressed interest in using
   the schema. As no new LDAP attribute syntaxes are proposed,
   adding this to schema of existing LDAP servers is easy,
   as it just requires adding corresponding OID and attribute syntax name
   to schema files.

   The document was also reviewed by LDAP (e.g. Kurt Zeilenga)
   and XMPP experts (e.g. Peter Saint-Andre).

   The document was improved in response to IANA questions and comments from NATO.


   Alexey Melnikov is the document shepherd. Ben Campbell is the responsible AD.
