Technical Summary This document replaces RFC 2255, describing a format for a Lightweight DirectoryAccess Protocol (LDAP) Uniform Resource Identifier. An LDAP URI describes an LDAP search operation that is used to retrieve information from an LDAP directory, or, in the context of an LDAP referral or reference, an LDAP URI describes a service where an LDAP operation may be progressed. These URIs are described as URLs in the document in order to connect them to the description in RFC 2255, but the text has otherwise been update to conform to RFC 2396bis. Working Group Summary The group came to consensus to propose this document as a standard. There was an update after IETF Last Call in order to incorporate suggested editorial changes. Protocol Quality This document was reviewd for the IESG by Ted Hardie. The working group and LDAP directorate reviewed the changes made during Last Call. IANA Note It is requested that IANA update the registration of the "ldap" URI scheme to reference this document.
