Abstract

   This document defines a number of changes and extensions to the
   Policy Core Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Schema (RFC
   3703) based on the model extensions defined by the Policy Core
   Information Model (PCIM) Extensions (RFC 3460).  These changes and
   extensions consist of new LDAP object classes and attribute types.
   Some of the schema items defined in this document re-implement
   existing concepts in accordance with their new semantics introduced
   by RFC 3460.  The other schema items implement new concepts, not
   covered by RFC 3703.  This document updates RFC 3703.
