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.
