   Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Schema for Supporting
  the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) in White Pages

Abstract

   The Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) identifies
   users by use of Jabber IDs (JIDs).  The Lightweight Directory Access
   Protocol (LDAP) enables provision of a white pages service with a
   schema relating to users and support for Internet protocols.  This
   specification defines a schema to enable XMPP JIDs to be associated
   with objects in an LDAP directory so that this information can be
   used with white pages applications.

1.  Introduction

   Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) [RFC6120]
   identifies users by use of Jabber IDs (JIDs).  The Lightweight
   Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) [RFC4510] enables provision of a
   white pages service with a schema relating to users and support for
   Internet protocols defined in [RFC4519].  This specification defines
   a schema to enable XMPP JIDs to be associated with LDAP directory
   objects so that this information can be used with white pages
   applications.

   The LDAP schema for storing JIDs is defined to enable JIDs to be
   associated with any object stored in the directory.  This is done by
   associating the new JID Attribute with a new Auxiliary Object Class
   called JIDObject.
