Abstract

   This document is a revision to [RFC 1632]: A Revised Catalog of
   Available X.500 Implementations and is based on the results of data
   collection via a WWW home page that enabled implementors to submit
   new or updated descriptions of currently available implementations of
   X.500, including commercial products and openly available offerings.
   [RFC 1632] is a revision of [RFC 1292].  We contacted each
   contributor to [RFC 1632] to request an update and published the URL
   of the WWW home page survey template in several mailing lists to
   encourage the submission of new product descriptions.

   This document contains detailed description of 31 X.500
   implementations - DSAs, DUAs, and DUA interfaces.

1.  Introduction

   This document catalogs currently available implementations of X.500,
   including commercial products and openly available offerings.  For
   the purposes of this survey, we classify X.500 products as,

      DSA

         A DSA is an OSI application process that provides the Directory
         functionality,

      DUA

         A DUA is an OSI application process that represents a user in
         accessing the Directory and uses the DAP to communicate with a
         DSA, and

      DUA Interface

         A DUA Interface is an application process that  represents a
         user in accessing the Directory using either DAP but supporting
         only a  subset of the DAP functionality or a protocol different
         from DAP to communicate with a  DSA or DUA.

   Section 2 of this document contains a listing of implementations
   cross referenced by keyword.  This list should aid in identifying
   implementations that meet your criteria.

   To compile this catalog, the IDS Working Group solicited input from
   the X.500 community by publishing a URL for a set of on-line
   description forms deployed on the WWW as a home page on an InterNIC
   server. This URL
