Abstract

   This document is an integral part of the Lightweight Directory Access
   Protocol (LDAP) technical specification.  It provides a technical
   specification of attribute types and object classes intended for use
   by LDAP directory clients for many directory services, such as White
   Pages.  These objects are widely used as a basis for the schema in
   many LDAP directories.  This document does not cover attributes used
   for the administration of directory servers, nor does it include
   directory objects defined for specific uses in other documents.
