2. Abstract

   The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) [1] requires that the
   contents of AttributeValue fields in protocol elements be octet
   strings.  This document defines the requirements that must be
   satisfied by encoding rules used to render directory attribute
   syntaxes into a form suitable for use in the LDAP, then goes on to
   define the encoding rules for the standard set of attribute syntaxes
   of [2],[3] and [4].  It also identifies all the attribute types, object
   classes and matching rules for LDAP version 3.

3. Overview

   Section 4 states the general requirements and notations for attribute
   types, object classes, syntax and matching rule definitions.

   The core definitions are given in section 5, those which are based on
   X.500(1993) in section 6, and other optional definitions in section 7.

4. General Issues

4.1. Attribute Types

   The attribute types are described by sample values for the subschema
   "attributeTypes" attribute, which is written in the
   AttributeTypeDescription syntax.  While lines have been folded for
   readability, the values transferred in protocol would not contain
   newlines.

   The AttributeTypeDescription is encoded according to the following BNF,
   and the productions for <oid>, <DirectoryStrings> and <DirectoryString>
   are given in sections 4.2.1.

      <AttributeTypeDescription> ::= "("
          <oid>   -- AttributeType identifier
          [ "NAME" <DirectoryStrings> ] -- name used in AttributeType
          [ "DESC" <DirectoryString> ]
          [ "OBSOLETE" ]
          [ "SUP" <oid> ]         -- derived from this other AttributeType
          [ "EQUALITY" <oid> ]    -- Matching Rule name
          [ "ORDERING" <oid> ]    -- Matching Rule name
          [ "SUBSTR" <oid> ]      -- Matching Rule name
          [ "SYNTAX" <DirectoryString> ] -- see section 4.2
          [ "SINGLE-VALUE" ]              -- default multi-valued
          [ "COLLECTIVE" ]                -- default not collective
          [ "NO-USER-MODIFICATION" ]      -- default user modifiable
          [ "USAGE" <AttributeUsage> ]    -- default user applications
          ")"

      <AttributeUsage> ::=
          "userApplications"
      |   "directoryOperation"
      |   "distributedOperation"  -- DSA-shared
      |   "dSAOperation"          -- DSA-specific, value depends on server

   Servers are not required to provide the same or any text
   in the description part of the subschema values they maintain.

   Servers must implement all the attribute types in section 5.1, and
   may also implement the types listed in sections 6.1 and 7.1.  Servers must
   be able to perform equality matching of values, but need not perform
   any additional validity checks on attribute values.

   Servers may recognize additional names and attributes not listed in this
   document.  Later documents may define additional types.

   Servers may implement additional attribute types not listed in this
   document, and if they do so, must publish the definitions of the types
   in the attributeTypes attribute of their subschema subentries.

   AttributeDescriptions may be used as the value in a NAME part of an
   AttributeTypeDescription.  Note that these are case insensitive.

INTERNET-DRAFT       LDAP Standard and Pilot Attributes     October 1996

4.2. Syntaxes

   This section defines general requirements for LDAP attribute value
   syntax encodings. All documents defining attribute syntax encodings for
   use with LDAP are expected to conform to these requirements.

   The encoding rules defined for a given attribute syntax must produce
   octet strings.  To the greatest extent possible, encoded octet
   strings should be usable in their native encoded form for display
   purposes. In particular, encoding rules for attribute syntaxes
   defining non-binary values should produce strings that can be
   displayed with little or no translation by clients implementing
   LDAP.  There are a few cases (e.g. Audio) however, when it is not sensible
   to produce a printable representation, and clients must not assume that
   an unrecognized syntax is a string representation.

4.2.1. Common Encoding Aspects

   In these encodings where an arbitrary string is used as part of a larger
   production (other than a Distinguished Name), a backslash quoting mechanism
   is used to encode the following separator symbol character (such as ''',
   '$' or '#') if it should occur in that string.  The backslash is followed
   by a pair of hexadecimal digits representing the next character.  A
   backslash itself in the string which forms part of a larger syntax is
   always transmitted as '\5C' or '\5c'.

   For the purposes of defining the encoding rules for attribute syntaxes,
   the following auxiliary BNF definitions will be used:

     <a> ::= 'a' | 'b' | 'c' | 'd' | 'e' | 'f' | 'g' | 'h' | 'i' |
             'j' | 'k' | 'l' | 'm' | 'n' | 'o' | 'p' | 'q' | 'r' |
             's' | 't' | 'u' | 'v' | 'w' | 'x' | 'y' | 'z' | 'A' |
             'B' | 'C' | 'D' | 'E' | 'F' | 'G' | 'H' | 'I' | 'J' |
             'K' | 'L' | 'M' | 'N' | 'O' | 'P' | 'Q' | 'R' | 'S' |
             'T' | 'U' | 'V' | 'W' | 'X' | 'Y' | 'Z'

     <d> ::= '0' | '1' | '2' | '3' | '4' | '5' | '6' | '7' | '8' | '9'

     <hex-digit> ::= <d> | 'a' | 'b' | 'c' | 'd' | 'e' | 'f' |
                      'A' | 'B' | 'C' | 'D' | 'E' | 'F'

     <k> ::= <a> | <d> | '-'

     <p> ::= <a> | <d> | ''' | '(' | ')' | '+' | ',' | '-' | '.' |
             '/' | ':' | '?' | ' '

     <letterstring> ::= <a> | <a> <letterstring>

     <numericstring> ::= <d> | <d> <numericstring>

     <keystring> ::= <a> | <a> <anhstring>

     <anhstring> ::= <k> | <k> <anhstring>

Wahl, Coulbeck, Howes & Kille                                    [Page 3]


INTERNET-DRAFT       LDAP Standard and Pilot Attributes     October 1996

     <printablestring> ::= <p> | <p> <printablestring>

     <space> ::= ' ' | ' ' <space>

     <whsp> ::= <space> | empty

     <utf8> ::= any sequence of octets formed from the UTF-8 [11]
                transformation of a character from ISO 10646 [12]

     <dstring> ::= <utf8> | <utf8> <dstring>

     <DirectoryStrings> ::= <DirectoryString> | '(' <DirectoryStringList> ')'

     <DirectoryStringList> ::= <DirectoryStringList> <DirectoryString> | ""

     <DirectoryString> ::= ''' <dstring> '''

     <oids> ::= <oid> | '(' <oidlist> ')'

     <oidlist> ::= <oidlist> '$' <oid> | <oid>

     -- <oid> is defined in 5.2.1.15

4.2.2  Binary Transfer of Values

   This encoding format is used if the binary encoding is requested by the
   client for an attribute, or if the attribute syntax name is 'Binary'.  The
   value, an instance of the ASN.1 AttributeValue type, is BER-encoded,
   subject to the restrictions of section 5.1 of [1], and this sequence of
   octets is used as the value.

   All servers must implement this form for both generating Search responses
   and parsing Add, Compare and Modify requests.  Clients must be prepared
   receiving values in binary (e.g. userCertificate or audio), and must not
   simply display binary or unrecognized values to users.

4.2.3. Syntax Namees

   Names of syntaxes for use with LDAP are ASCII strings which either
   begin with a letter and contain only letters or digits.  The names are
   case insensitive.  Historically since syntaxes correspond to ASN.1 types,
   they have been named starting with a capital letter.  A suggested upper
   bound on the number of characters in value with a DirectoryString or
   IA5String syntax or the number of bytes in a value for all other syntaxes
   may be indicated by appending this bound count inside of curly braces, e.g.
   "DirectoryString{64}".  Note that a single character of the DirectoryString
   may be encoded in more than one byte since UTF-8 is a variable-length
   encoding.

   Syntax names do not have global scope: two clients or servers may
   know of different syntaxes with the same name.



Wahl, Coulbeck, Howes & Kille                                    [Page 4]


INTERNET-DRAFT       LDAP Standard and Pilot Attributes     October 1996

   The definition of additional arbitrary syntaxes is strongly depreciated
   since it will hinder interoperability: today's client and server
   implementations generally do not have the ability to dynamically recognize
   new syntaxes.  In most cases attributes will be defined with the
   DirectoryString syntax.

   The following syntax names are used for attributes in this document.
   Servers are only required to implement the syntaxes in section 5.2.

      AccessPoint                       ACIItem
      AttributeTypeDescription          Audio
      Binary                            BitString
      Certificate                       CertificateList
      CertificatePair                   DataQualitySyntax
      DeliveryMethod                    DirectoryString
      DITContentRuleDescription         DN
      DSAQualitySyntax                  DSEType
      EnhancedGuide                     FacsimileTelephoneNumber
      Fax                               GeneralizedTime
      Guide                             IA5String
      INTEGER                           JPEG
      MailPreference                    MasterAndShadowAccessPoints
      MatchingRuleDescription           MatchingRuleUseDescription
      ModifyRight                       NameAndOptionalUID
      NameFormDescription               NumericString
      ObjectClassDescription            OID
      OtherMailbox                      Password
      PostalAddress                     PresentationAddress
      PrintableString                   ProtocolInformation
      SubtreeSpecification              SupplierAndConsumers
      SupplierInformation               SupplierOrConsumer
      TelephoneNumber                   TeletexTerminalIdentifier
      TelexNumber                       UTCTime

4.3. Object Classes

   These are described as sample values for the subschema "objectClasses"
   attribute for a server which implements the LDAP schema.
   While lines have been folded for readability, the values transferred in
   protocol would not contain newlines.

   Object class descriptions are written according to the following BNF:

      <ObjectClassDescription> ::= "("
          <oid>   -- ObjectClass identifier
          [ "NAME" <DirectoryStrings> ]
          [ "DESC" <DirectoryString> ]
          [ "OBSOLETE" ]
          [ "SUP" <oids> ]    -- Superior ObjectClasses
          [ ( "ABSTRACT" | "STRUCTURAL" | "AUXILIARY" ) ] -- default structural
          [ "MUST" <oids> ]   -- AttributeTypes
          [ "MAY" <oids> ]    -- AttributeTypes
      ")"

INTERNET-DRAFT       LDAP Standard and Pilot Attributes     October 1996

   Servers must implement all the object classes in section 5.3:
      account                           alias
      applicationEntity                 applicationProcess
      certificationAuthority            country
      dNSDomain                         dSA
      device                            document
      documentSeries                    domain
      domainRelatedObject               friendlyCountry
      groupOfNames                      groupOfUniqueNames
      locality                          newPilotPerson
      organization                      organizationalPerson
      organizationalRole                organizationalUnit
      person                            pilotDSA

      qualityLabelledData               rFC822localPart
      residentialPerson                 room
      simpleSecurityObject              strongAuthenticationUser
      top

   and may also implement the object classes of 6.3 and 7.3.

   Servers may implement additional object classes not listed in this
   document, and if they do so, must publish the definitions of the classes
   in the objectClasses attribute of their subschema subentries.  Later
   documents may define additional object classes.

4.4. Matching Rules

   Matching rules are used by servers to compare attribute values against
   assertion values when performing Search and Compare operations.

   Most of the attributes given in this document will have an equality
   matching rule defined.

   Matching rule descriptions are written according to the following BNF:

      <MatchingRuleDescription> ::= "("
          <oid>   -- MatchingRule identifier
          [ "NAME" <DirectoryStrings> ]
          [ "DESC" <DirectoryString> ]
          [ "OBSOLETE" ]
          "SYNTAX" <DirectoryString>
         ")"

   Servers must implement all the matching rules in section 5.4:
      bitStringMatch                    caseExactIA5Match
      caseIgnoreIA5Match                caseIgnoreListMatch
      caseIgnoreMatch                   distinguishedNameMatch
      generalizedTimeMatch              integerMatch
      numericStringMatch                objectIdentifierMatch
      octetStringMatch                  telephoneNumberMatch

   and may also implement the matching rules of 6.4 and 7.4.

INTERNET-DRAFT       LDAP Standard and Pilot Attributes     October 1996

   Servers may implement additional matching rules not listed in this
   document, and if they do so, must publish the definitions of the
   matching rules in the matchingRules attribute of their
   subschema subentries.

5. Mandatory Definitions

   Section 5 contains definitions which must be implemented by all servers.


5.1. Attribute Types

   Servers must recognize all the attributes of this section (5.1.1 - 5.1.5).

5.1.1. Standard User Attributes

   The attributes listed in this section are those defined in X.520(1993),
   likely to be present in user entries.  Servers must recognize all the
   attributes of this section.  The semantics of attributes 2.5.4.0 through
   2.5.4.40 are summarized in RFC 1274.

INTERNET-DRAFT       LDAP Standard and Pilot Attributes     October 1996

5.2. Syntaxes

5.2.1. Standard User Syntaxes

   Servers must recognize all the syntaxes described in this section.

5.2.1.1. BitString

   The encoding of a value with BitString syntax is according to the
   following BNF:

      <bitstring> ::= ''' <binary-digits> ''B'

      <binary-digits> ::= '0' <binary-digits> | '1' <binary-digits> |
      empty


5.2.1.2. PrintableString

   The encoding of a value with PrintableString syntax is the string
   value itself.  PrintableString is limited to the characters in
   production <p> of section 4.1.

5.2.1.3. DirectoryString

   A string with DirectoryString syntax is encoded in the UTF-8 form of
   ISO 10646 (a superset of Unicode).  Servers and clients must be prepared to
   receive arbitrary Unicode characters in values.

   For characters in the PrintableString form, the value is encoded as the
   string value itself.

   If it is of the TeletexString form, then the characters are transliterated
   to their equivalents in UniversalString, and encoded in UTF-8 [11].

   If it is of the UniversalString or BMPString forms [12], UTF-8 is used to
   encode them.

   Note: the form of DirectoryString is not indicated in protocol unless the
   attribute value is carried in binary.  Servers which convert to DAP must
   choose an appropriate form.  Servers must not reject values merely because
   they contain legal Unicode characters outside of the range of printable
   ASCII.

5.2.1.4. Certificate

   Because of the changes from X.509(1988) and X.509(1993) and additional
   changes to the ASN.1 definition to support certificate extensions, no
   string representation is defined, and values with Certificate syntax
   must only be transferred using the binary encoding, by requesting or
   returning the attributes with descriptions "userCertificate;binary" or
   "caCertificate;binary".  The BNF notation in RFC 1778 for
   "User Certificate" is not recommended to be used.

Wahl, Coulbeck, Howes & Kille                                    [Page 16]


INTERNET-DRAFT       LDAP Standard and Pilot Attributes     October 1996

5.2.1.5. CertificateList

   Because of the incompatibility of the X.509(1988) and X.509(1993)
   definitions of revocation lists, values with CertificateList syntax
   must only be transferred using a binary encoding, by requesting or
   returning the attributes with descriptions
   "certificateRevocationList;binary" or "authorityRevocationList;binary".
   The BNF notation in RFC 1778  for "Authority Revocation List" is not
   recommended to be used.

5.2.1.6. CertificatePair

   Because the Certificate is being carried in binary, values with
   CertificatePair syntax must only be transferred using a binary encoding,
   by requesting or returning the attribute description
   "crossCertificatePair;binary".  The BNF notation in RFC 1778 for
   "Certificate Pair" is not recommended to be used.

5.2.1.7. CountryString

   A value of CountryString syntax is encoded the same as a value of
   DirectoryString syntax.  Note that this syntax is limited to values of
   exactly two printable string characters.

      <CountryString>  ::= <p> <p>

5.2.1.8. DN

   Values with DN (Distinguished Name) syntax are encoded to have the
   representation defined in [5].  Note that this representation is not
   reversible to the original ASN.1 encoding as the CHOICE of any
   DirectoryString element in an RDN is no longer known.

5.2.1.9. DeliveryMethod

   Values with DeliveryMethod syntax are encoded according to the
   following BNF:

      <delivery-value> ::= <pdm> | <pdm> '$' <delivery-value>

      <pdm> ::= 'any' | 'mhs' | 'physical' | 'telex' | 'teletex' |
                'g3fax' | 'g4fax' | 'ia5' | 'videotex' | 'telephone'

5.2.1.10. EnhancedGuide

   Values with the EnhancedGuide syntax are encoded according to the
   following BNF:

       <EnhancedGuide> ::= <objectclass> '#' <criteria> '#' <subset>

       <subset> ::= "baseobject" | "oneLevel" | "wholeSubtree"



Wahl, Coulbeck, Howes & Kille                                    [Page 17]


INTERNET-DRAFT       LDAP Standard and Pilot Attributes     October 1996

   The <criteria> production is defined in the Guide syntax below.
   This syntax has been added subsequent to RFC 1778.

5.2.1.11. FacsimileTelephoneNumber

   Values with the FacsimileTelephoneNumber syntax are encoded according
   to the following BNF:

      <fax-number> ::= <printablestring> [ '$' <faxparameters> ]

      <faxparameters> ::= <faxparm> | <faxparm> '$' <faxparameters>

      <faxparm> ::= 'twoDimensional' | 'fineResolution' | 'unlimitedLength' |
                   'b4Length' | 'a3Width' | 'b4Width' | 'uncompressed'

   In the above, the first <printablestring> is the actual fax number,
   and the <faxparm> tokens represent fax parameters.

5.2.1.12. Guide

   Values with the Guide syntax are encoded according to the following
   BNF:

      <guide-value> ::= [ <object-class> '#' ] <criteria>

     <object-class> ::= an encoded value with OID syntax

     <criteria> ::= <criteria-item> | <criteria-set> | '!' <criteria>

     <criteria-set> ::= [ '(' ] <criteria> '&' <criteria-set> [ ')' ] |
                        [ '(' ] <criteria> '|' <criteria-set> [ ')' ]

     <criteria-item> ::= [ '(' ] <attributetype> '$' <match-type> [ ')' ]

     <match-type> ::= "EQ" | "SUBSTR" | "GE" | "LE" | "APPROX"

5.2.1.13. NameAndOptionalUID

   The encoding of a value with the NameAndOptionalUID syntax is according
   to the following BNF:

      <NameAndOptionalUID> ::=
                <DistinguishedName> [ '#' <BitString> ]

   Although the '#' character may occur in a string representation of a
   distinguished name, no additional special quoting is done in the
   distinguished name other than that of [5].

   This syntax has been added subsequent to RFC 1778.

INTERNET-DRAFT       LDAP Standard and Pilot Attributes     October 1996

5.2.1.14. NumericString

   The encoding of a string with the NumericString syntax is the string
   value itself.

5.2.1.15. OID

   Values with OID (Object Identifier) syntax are encoded according to the
   following BNF:

      <oid> ::= <descr> | <numericoid>

      <descr> ::= <keystring>

      <numericoid> ::= <numericstring> | <numericstring> '.' <numericoid>

   In the above BNF, <descr> is the syntactic representation of an
   object descriptor, which must consist of letters and digits, starting
   with a letter. When encoding values with OID syntax, the first encoding
   option must be used in preference to the second. That is, in encoding
   object identifiers, object descriptors (where assigned and known by
   the implementation) must be used in preference to numeric oids to
   the greatest extent possible. All permitted object descriptors for use
   in LDAP are given in this document.  No other object descriptors may be
   used.  (Note that clients must expect that LDAPv2 implementations
   will return object descriptors other than those listed.)

5.2.1.16. Password

   Values with Password syntax are encoded as octet strings.

5.2.1.17. PostalAddress

   Values with the PostalAddress syntax are encoded according to the
   following BNF:

      <postal-address> ::= <dstring> | <dstring> '$' <postal-address>

   In the above, each <dstring> component of a postal address value is
   encoded as a value of type DirectoryString syntax.  Backslashes and
   dollar characters, if they occur in the component, are quoted as
   described in section 4.2.

5.2.1.18. PresentationAddress

   Values with the PresentationAddress syntax are encoded to have the
   representation described in [6].

5.2.1.20. TelephoneNumber

   Values with the TelephoneNumber syntax are encoded as if they were
   Printable String types.  Telephone numbers are recommended in X.520 to
   be in international form, e.g. "+1 512 305 0280".

INTERNET-DRAFT       LDAP Standard and Pilot Attributes     October 1996

5.2.1.21. TeletexTerminalIdentifier

   Values with the TeletexTerminalIdentifier syntax are encoded according
   to the following BNF:

      <teletex-id> ::= <ttx-term>  0*('$' <ttx-param>)

      <ttx-term> ::= <printablestring>

      <ttx-param> ::= <ttx-key> ':' <ttx-value>

      <ttx-key> ::= 'graphic' | 'control' | 'misc' | 'page' | 'private'

      <ttx-value> ::= <octetstring>

   In the above, the first <printablestring> is the encoding of the
   first portion of the teletex terminal identifier to be encoded, and
   the subsequent 0 or more <octetstrings> are subsequent portions
   of the teletex terminal identifier.

5.2.1.22. TelexNumber

   Values with the TelexNumber syntax are encoded according to the
   following BNF:

      <telex-number> ::= <actual-number> '$' <country> '$' <answerback>

      <actual-number> ::= <printablestring>

      <country> ::= <printablestring>

      <answerback> ::= <printablestring>

   In the above, <actual-number> is the syntactic representation of the
   number portion of the TELEX number being encoded, <country> is the
   TELEX country code, and <answerback> is the answerback code of a
   TELEX terminal.

5.2.1.23. UTCTime

   Values with UTCTime syntax are encoded as if they were printable
   strings with the strings containing a UTCTime value.  This is historical;
   new attribute definitions must use GeneralizedTime instead.

5.2.1.24. Boolean

   Values with Boolean syntax are encoded according to the following
   BNF:

      <boolean> ::= "TRUE" | "FALSE"

   Boolean values have an encoding of "TRUE" if they are logically true,
   and have an encoding of "FALSE" otherwise.

INTERNET-DRAFT       LDAP Standard and Pilot Attributes     October 1996

5.2.2. Pilot Syntaxes

   Servers must recognize all the syntaxes described in this section.

5.2.2.1. Audio

   The encoding of a value with Audio syntax is the octets of the value
   itself, an 8KHz uncompressed encoding compatible with the SunOS
   4.1.3 'play' utility.

5.2.2.2. DSAQualitySyntax

   Values with this syntax are encoded according to the following BNF:

      <DsaQualitySyntax> ::= <DSAKeyword> [ '#' <description> ]

      <DSAKeyword> ::= 'DEFUNCT' | 'EXPERIMENTAL' | 'BEST-EFFORT' |
                       'PILOT-SERVICE' | 'FULL-SERVICE'

      <description> ::= encoded as a PrintableString

5.2.2.3. DataQualitySyntax

   Values with this syntax are encoded according to the following BNF:

      <DataQualitySyntax> ::= <compKeyword> '#' <attrQuality> '#'
                              <listQuality> [ '#' <description> ]

      <attrQuality> ::= <levelKeyword> '+' <compKeyword>

      <listQuality> ::= <list> '$' <list><listQuality>

      <list> ::= <attribute> '+' <attrQuality>

      <compKeyword> ::= 'NONE' | 'SAMPLE' | 'SELECTED' |
                        'SUBSTANTIAL' | 'FULL'

      <levelKeyword> ::= 'UNKNOWN' | 'EXTERNAL' | 'SYSTEM-MAINTAINED' |
                        'USER-SUPPLIED'

5.2.2.4. IA5String

   The encoding of a value with IA5String syntax is the string value
   itself.

5.2.2.5. JPEG

   Values with JPEG syntax are encoded as if they were octet strings
   containing JPEG images in the JPEG File Interchange Format (JFIF), as
   described in [8].

INTERNET-DRAFT       LDAP Standard and Pilot Attributes     October 1996

5.2.2.6. MailPreference

   Values with MailPreference syntax are encoded according to the
   following BNF:

      <mail-preference> ::= "NO-LISTS" | "ANY-LIST" | "PROFESSIONAL-LISTS"

5.2.2.7. OtherMailbox

   Values of the OtherMailbox syntax are encoded according to the
   following BNF:

      <otherMailbox> ::= <mailbox-type> '$' <mailbox>

      <mailbox-type> ::= an encoded Printable String

      <mailbox> ::= an encoded IA5 String

   In the above, <mailbox-type> represents the type of mail system in
   which the mailbox resides, for example "MCIMail"; and <mailbox> is the
   actual mailbox in the mail system defined by <mailbox-type>.

5.2.2.8. Fax

   Values with Fax syntax are encoded as if they were octet strings
   containing Group 3 Fax images as defined in [7].

5.2.3. Operational Syntaxes

   Servers must recognize all the syntaxes described in this section.

5.2.3.1. AttributeTypeDescription

   Values with this syntax are encoded according to the BNF given at the
   start of section 4.1. For example,

        ( 2.5.4.0 NAME 'objectClass' SYNTAX 'OID' )

5.2.3.2. GeneralizedTime

   Values of this syntax are encoded as printable strings, represented
   as specified in X.208.  Note that the time zone must be specified.
   It is strongly recommended that Zulu time zone be used.  For example,

                199412161032Z

5.2.3.3. INTEGER

   Values with INTEGER syntax are encoded as the decimal representation
   of their values, with each decimal digit represented by the its
   character equivalent. So the number 1321 is represented by the character
   string "1321".

5.2.3.4. ObjectClassDescription

   Values of this syntax are encoded according to the BNF in section 4.3.

5.3. Object Classes

5.3.1. Standard Classes

   Servers must recognize the object classes listed here as values of

5.4. Matching Rules

   Servers must recognize the following matching rules, used for equality
   matching, and must be capable of performing the matching rules.
   For all these rules, the assertion syntax is the same as the value syntax.

    ( 2.5.13.0 NAME 'objectIdentifierMatch' SYNTAX 'OID' )
    ( 2.5.13.1 NAME 'distinguishedNameMatch' SYNTAX 'DN' )
    ( 2.5.13.2 NAME 'caseIgnoreMatch' SYNTAX 'DirectoryString' )
    ( 2.5.13.8 NAME 'numericStringMatch' SYNTAX 'NumericString' )
    ( 2.5.13.11 NAME 'caseIgnoreListMatch' SYNTAX 'PostalAddress' )
    ( 2.5.13.14 NAME 'integerMatch' SYNTAX 'INTEGER' )
    ( 2.5.13.16 NAME 'bitStringMatch' SYNTAX 'BitString' )
    ( 2.5.13.17 NAME 'octetStringMatch' SYNTAX 'Password' )
    ( 2.5.13.20 NAME 'telephoneNumberMatch' SYNTAX 'TelephoneNumber' )
    ( 2.5.13.27 NAME 'generalizedTimeMatch' SYNTAX 'GeneralizedTime' )
    ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.109.114.1 NAME 'caseExactIA5Match' SYNTAX 'IA5String' )
    ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.109.114.2 NAME 'caseIgnoreIA5Match' SYNTAX 'IA5String' )

   When performing the caseIgnoreMatch, caseIgnoreListMatch,
   telephoneNumberMatch, caseExactIA5Match and caseIgnoreIA5Match,
   multiple adjoining whitespace characters are treated the same as
   an individual space, and leading and trailing whitespace is ignored.

6. X.500 Definitions

   Servers which implement the X.500(1993) protocols are required to recognize
   these attributes types, syntaxes, object classes and matching rules, where
   they correspond to X.500 features implemented by that server.  No other
   servers are required to implement any definitions in section 6, although
   they may do so.

   Clients must not assume these definitions are recognized by all servers.

6.1. Attribute Types

6.1.1. User Attributes

   All user attributes of X.500 are listed in section 5.1.1.

INTERNET-DRAFT       LDAP Standard and Pilot Attributes     October 1996

6.1.2. Collective Attributes

   These attributes are stored in collective attribute subentries, but may
   be visible in user entries if requested.

   Each of these collective attributes is a subtype of the attribute which
   has the OID without the final ".1", e.g. "collectivePostalCode" is a
   subtype of "postalCode".

   The value of this attribute may be supplied in an AddEntry operation
   to inform the Directory of the target server on which the entry is to
   be held.  This is used to create a new naming context in the directory
   tree.  A server which does not permit the use of this attribute must
   return an appropriate error code if it is present in the attribute list.
   This attribute will generally not be present in the entry after the add
   is completed.

6.2. Syntaxes

6.2.1. Standard Syntaxes

6.2.1.1. ACIItem

   This syntax appears too complicated for a compact string representation
   to be useful.  Clients must only request and servers must only return
   values which use the the binary encoding of the value, e.g.
   "entryACI;binary".

   It is recommended that clients that wish to only determine whether they
   have been granted permission to modify an entry use the "modifyRights"
   attribute rather than attempt to parse this syntax.

6.2.1.2. AccessPoint

   Values with AccessPoint syntax are encoded according to the
   following BNF:

      <AccessPoint> ::= ( '(' <DistinguishedName> '#'
                          <PresentationAddress> ')' ) |
                   -- Optional protocol info absent, parenthesis required
                          ( '(' <DistinguishedName> '#'
                                <PresentationAddress> '#'
                                <SetOfProtocolInformation ')' )

      <SetOfProtocolInformation> ::= <ProtocolInformation> |
                                 '(' <ProtocolInformationList> ')'

      <ProtocolInformationList> ::= <ProtocolInformation> |
                            <ProtocolInformation> '$'
                            <ProtocolInformationList>

6.2.1.3. DITContentRuleDescription

   Values with this syntax are encoded according to the following BNF:

      <DITContentRuleDescription> ::= "("
          <oid>   -- Structural ObjectClass identifier

      <MasterAndShadowAccessPointList> ::= <MasterOrShadowAccessPoint> |
        <MasterOrShadowAccessPoint> '$' <MasterAndShadowAccessPointList>

      <MasterOrShadowAccessPoint> ::= <category> '#' <AccessPoint>

      <category> ::= 'master' | 'shadow'

6.2.1.7. MatchingRuleDescription

   Values of this syntax are encoded according to the BNF of section 4.4.

   The syntax is encoded according to the following BNF:

    <ModifyRight> ::= [<perm-list>] <octo> <item>
       -- perm list is absent when none of the bits set in permission

    <item> ::= <entry> | <attribute> | <value>

    <entry> ::= 'entry'

    <attribute> ::= 'attribute' <dollar> <attributetype>

    <value> ::= 'value' <dollar> <attributetype> <dollar> <strvalue>

    -- <strvalue> is the string encoding of the value

    <perm-list> ::= <perm> | <perm> <dollar> <perm-list>
       -- one or more of the bits in permission, if set

    <perm> ::= 'add' | 'remove' | 'rename' | 'move'

    <octo> ::= [ <whsp> ] '#' [ <whsp> ]

    <dollar> ::= [ <whsp> ] '$' [ <whsp> ]

INTERNET-DRAFT       LDAP Standard and Pilot Attributes     October 1996

   For example,

       # entry
       add $ remove # attribute $ cn
       add $ remove # attribute $ sn
       remove # value $ memberName $ CN=Babs, O=Michigan, C=US

6.3. Object Classes

   The following object classes may be recognized.

    ( 2.5.17.0 NAME 'subentry' SUP top STRUCTURAL
      MUST ( cn $ subtreeSpecification ) )

    ( 2.5.17.1 NAME 'accessControlSubentry' AUXILIARY )

    ( 2.5.20.1 NAME 'subschema' AUXILIARY
      MAY ( dITStructureRules $ nameForms $ ditContentRules $
      objectClasses $ attributeTypes $ matchingRules $ matchingRuleUse ) )

6.4. Matching Rules

   Only servers which implement the attribute types which reference these
   matching rules in their definition are required to implement these rules.

   The definitions of the rules can be found in [2] and [3].

6.5. Other

   The string 'excludeAllCollectiveAttributes' is defined as a synonym
   for the OID 2.5.18.0.  It would typically be used as a value of the
   collectiveExclusions attribute.

7. Other Optional Definitions

7.1. Attribute Types

7.1.1. Obsolete Attributes

   Implementors must use modifyTimestamp and modifiersName instead.

    ( 0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.23 NAME 'lastModifiedTime' OBSOLETE
      SYNTAX 'UTCTime' )

    ( 0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.24 NAME 'lastModifiedBy' OBSOLETE
      EQUALITY distinguishedNameMatch SYNTAX 'DN' )

7.2. Syntaxes

7.2.1 MHSORAddress

   Values of type MHSORAddress are encoded as strings, according to
   the format defined in [10].

7.2.2 DLSubmitPermission

   Values of type DLSubmitPermission are encoded as strings, according
   to the following BNF:

     <dlsubmit-perm> ::= <dlgroup_label> ':' <dlgroup-value>
                             | <dl-label> ':' <dl-value>

     <dlgroup-label> ::= 'group_member'

     <dlgroup-value> ::= <name>

     <name> ::= an encoded Distinguished Name

     <dl-label> ::= 'individual' | 'dl_member' | 'pattern'

     <dl-value> ::= <orname>



Wahl, Coulbeck, Howes & Kille                                    [Page 36]


INTERNET-DRAFT       LDAP Standard and Pilot Attributes     October 1996

     <orname> ::= <address> '#' <dn>
            |  <address>

     <address> ::= <add-label> ':' <oraddress>

     <dn> ::= <dn-label> ':' <name>

     <add-label> = 'X400'

     <dn-label> = 'X500'

   where <oraddress> is as defined in RFC 1327.

7.3. Object Classes

7.3.1. Obsolete Classes

    ( 0.9.2342.19200300.100.4.22 NAME 'oldQualityLabelledData' SUP top
      STRUCTURAL MUST dSAQuality
      MAY ( subtreeMaximumQuality $ subtreeMinimumQuality ) )

   The oldQualityLabelledData object class is historical and must not be
   used for defining new objects.

7.3.2. extensibleObject

    ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.101.120.111 NAME 'extensibleObject'
      SUP top AUXILIARY )

   This class, if present in an entry, permits that entry to optionally
   hold any attribute.  The MAY attribute list of this class is implicitly
   the set of all attributes known to the server.  The mandatory attributes
   of the other object classes of this entry are still required to be
   present.

   Note that not all servers will implement this object class, and those
   which do not will reject requests to add entries which contain this
   object class, or modify an entry to add this object class.

7.4. Matching Rules

7.4.1. caseIgnoreIA5SubstringsMatch

   ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.109.114.3
     NAME 'caseIgnoreIA5SubstringsMatch' SYNTAX 'IA5String' )

   This matching rule may be used to compare components of an IA5 string
   against an attribute whose values have IA5 string syntax.

8. Security Considerations

   Security issues are not discussed in this memo.
