Technical Summary

This document defines the clearance sponsor attribute.  This attribute
may be carried in a public key certificate in the Subject Directory
Attributes extension, in an attribute certificate in the attribute
field, in a directory as an attribute, or in protocols that support

Discussion Summary

The -00 version was reviewed by Kurt Zeilenga.  He suggested instead of
using UTF8String that the attribute be a DirectoryString and use the
caseIgnoreMatch matching rule.  These changes were adopted, as they were
more than reasonable.

Document Quality

This document is a short document that defines an attribute and uses an
already defined matching rule.


Tim Polk is the responsible AD and the document Shepherd.
