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