Technical Summary This document defines the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) assertion control. The assertion control allows the client to specify a condition which must be true for the operation to be processed normally. Otherwise the operation fails. For instance, the control can be used with the Modify operation to perform atomic "test and set" and "test and clear" operations. The control may be attached to any update operation to support conditional addition, deletion, modification, and renaming of the target object. The asserted condition is evaluated as an integral part the operation. Working Group Summary This document is the product of an individual submitter. It was discussed informally in the LDAPEXT working group, and at an informal BoF announced on the LDAPEXT mailing list. No issues were raised during IETF Last Call. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed for the IESG by Ted Hardie.
