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.
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.
