DESCRIPTION
       The LDAP protocol is defined in the following RFC's

Core LDAP Specification
   RFC-4510 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): Technical Specification Road Map
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4510.txt

       The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is an Internet protocol for accessing
       distributed directory services that act in accordance with X.500 data and service models.
       This document provides a road map of the LDAP Technical Specification.

   RFC-4511 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): The Protocol
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4511.txt

       This document describes the protocol elements, along with their semantics and encodings,
       of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).  LDAP provides access to distributed
       directory services that act in accordance with X.500 data and service models.  These
       protocol elements are based on those described in the X.500 Directory Access Protocol
       (DAP).

   RFC-4512 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): Directory Information Models
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4512.txt

       The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is an Internet protocol for accessing
       distributed directory services that act in accordance with X.500 data and service models.
       This document describes the X.500 Directory Information Models, as used in LDAP.

   RFC-4513 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): Authentication Methods and Security
       Mechanisms
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4513.txt

       This document describes authentication methods and security mechanisms of the Lightweight
       Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).  This document details establishment of Transport Layer
       Security (TLS) using the StartTLS operation.

       This document details the simple Bind authentication method including anonymous,
       unauthenticated, and name/password mechanisms and the Simple Authentication and Security
       Layer (SASL) Bind authentication method including the EXTERNAL mechanism.

       This document discusses various authentication and authorization states through which a
       session to an LDAP server may pass and the actions that trigger these state changes.

   RFC-4514 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): String Representation of Distinguished
       Names
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4514.txt

       The X.500 Directory uses distinguished names (DNs) as primary keys to entries in the
       directory.  This document defines the string representation used in the Lightweight
       Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) to transfer distinguished names.  The string
       representation is designed to give a clean representation of commonly used distinguished
       names, while being able to represent any distinguished name.

   RFC-4515 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): String Representation of Search Filters
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4515.txt

       Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) search filters are transmitted in the LDAP
       protocol using a binary representation that is appropriate for use on the network.  This
       document defines a human-readable string representation of LDAP search filters that is
       appropriate for use in LDAP URLs (RFC 4516) and in other applications.

   RFC-4516 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): Uniform Resource Locator
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4516.txt

       This document describes a format for a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
       Uniform Resource Locator (URL).	An LDAP URL 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 URL describes a service where an LDAP operation may be
       progressed.

   RFC-4517 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): Syntaxes and Matching Rules
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4517.txt

       Each attribute stored in a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory, whose
       values may be transferred in the LDAP protocol, has a defined syntax that constrains the
       structure and format of its values.  The comparison semantics for values of a syntax are
       not part of the syntax definition but are instead provided through separately defined
       matching rules.	Matching rules specify an argument, an assertion value, which also has a
       defined syntax.	This document defines a base set of syntaxes and matching rules for use
       in defining attributes for LDAP directories.

   RFC-4518 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): Internationalized String Preparation
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4518.txt

       The previous Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) technical specifications did not
       precisely define how character string matching is to be performed.  This led to a number
       of usability and interoperability problems.  This document defines string preparation
       algorithms for character-based matching rules defined for use in LDAP.

   RFC-4519 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): Schema for User Applications
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4519.txt

       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.

Other LDAP Related RFCs - Proposed Standards
   RFC-6171 The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Don't Use Copy Control
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc6171.txt

       This document defines the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Don't Use Copy
       control extension which allows a client to specify that copied information should not be
       used in providing service.  This control is based upon the X.511 dontUseCopy service
       control option.

   RFC-5020 The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) entryDN Operational Attribute
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc5020.txt

       This document describes the LDAP/X.500 'entryDN' operational attribute.	The attribute
       provides a copy of the entry's distinguished name for use in attribute value assertions.

   RFC-4792 Encoding Instructions for the Generic String Encoding Rules (GSER)
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4792.txt

       Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) defines a general framework for annotating types in
       an ASN.1 specification with encoding instructions that alter how values of those types are
       encoded according to ASN.1 encoding rules.  This document defines the supporting notation
       for encoding instructions that apply to the Generic String Encoding Rules (GSER), and in
       particular defines an encoding instruction to provide a machine-processable representation
       for the declaration of a GSER ChoiceOfStrings type.

   RFC-4532 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Who am I? Operation
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4532.txt

       This specification provides a mechanism for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
       clients to obtain the authorization identity the server has associated with the user or
       application entity.  This mechanism is specified as an LDAP extended operation called the
       LDAP "Who am I?" operation.

   RFC-4530 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) entryUUID Operational Attribute
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4530.txt

       This document describes the LDAP/X.500 'entryUUID' operational attribute and associated
       matching rules and syntax.  The attribute holds a server-assigned Universally Unique
       Identifier (UUID) for the object.  Directory clients may use this attribute to distinguish
       objects identified by a distinguished name or to locate an object after renaming.

   RFC-4528 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Assertion Control
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4528.txt

       This document defines the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Assertion Control,
       which allows a client to specify that a directory operation should only be processed if an
       assertion applied to the target entry of the operation is true.	It can be used to
       construct "test and set", "test and clear", and other conditional operations.

   RFC-4527 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Read Entry Controls
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4527.txt

       This document specifies an extension to the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
       to allow the client to read the target entry of an update operation.  The client may
       request to read the entry before and/or after the modifications are applied.  These reads
       are done as an atomic part of the update operation.

   RFC-4526 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Absolute True and False Filters
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4526.txt

       This document extends the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) to support absolute
       True and False filters based upon similar capabilities found in X.500 directory systems.
       The document also extends the String Representation of LDAP Search Filters to support
       these filters.

   RFC-4524 COSINE LDAP/X.500 Schema
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4524.txt

       This document provides a collection of schema elements for use with the Lightweight
       Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) from the COSINE and Internet X.500 pilot projects.

   RFC-4523 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Schema Definitions for X.509
       Certificates
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4523.txt

       This document describes schema for representing X.509 certificates, X.521 security
       information, and related elements in directories accessible using the Lightweight
       Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).  The LDAP definitions for these X.509 and X.521 schema
       elements replace those provided in RFCs 2252 and 2256.

   RFC-4522 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): The Binary Encoding Option
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4522.txt

       Each attribute stored in a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory has a
       defined syntax (i.e., data type).  A syntax definition specifies how attribute values
       conforming to the syntax are normally represented when transferred in LDAP operations.
       This representation is referred to as the LDAP-specific encoding to distinguish it from
       other methods of encoding attribute values.  This document defines an attribute option,
       the binary option, that can be used to specify that the associated attribute values are
       instead encoded according to the Basic Encoding Rules (BER) used by X.500 directories.

   RFC-4370 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Proxied Authorization Control
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4370.txt

       This document defines the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Proxy Authorization
       Control.  The Proxy Authorization Control allows a client to request that an operation be
       processed under a provided authorization identity instead of under the current
       authorization identity associated with the connection.

   RFC-4104 Policy Core Extension Lightweight Directory Access Protocol Schema (PCELS)
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4104.txt

       This document defines a number of changes and extensions to the Policy Core Lightweight
       Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Schema (RFC 3703) based on the model extensions defined
       by the Policy Core Information Model (PCIM) Extensions (RFC 3460).  These changes and
       extensions consist of new LDAP object classes and attribute types.  Some of the schema
       items defined in this document re-implement existing concepts in accordance with their new
       semantics introduced by RFC 3460.  The other schema items implement new concepts, not
       covered by RFC 3703.  This document updates RFC 3703.

   RFC-3928 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Client Update Protocol (LCUP)
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3928.txt

       This document defines the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Client Update
       Protocol (LCUP).  The protocol is intended to allow an LDAP client to synchronize with the
       content of a directory information tree (DIT) stored by an LDAP server and to be notified
       about the changes to that content.

   RFC-3909 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Cancel Operation
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3909.txt

       This specification describes a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) extended
       operation to cancel (or abandon) an outstanding operation.  Unlike the LDAP Abandon
       operation, but like the X.511 Directory Access Protocol (DAP) Abandon operation, this
       operation has a response which provides an indication of its outcome.

   RFC-3876 Returning Matched Values with the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol version 3
       (LDAPv3)
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3876.txt

       This document describes a control for the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol version 3
       that is used to return a subset of attribute values from an entry.  Specifically, only
       those values that match a "values return" filter.  Without support for this control, a
       client must retrieve all of an attribute's values and search for specific values locally.

   RFC-3866 Language Tags and Ranges in the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3866.txt

       It is often desirable to be able to indicate the natural language associated with values
       held in a directory and to be able to query the directory for values which fulfill the
       user's language needs.  This document details the use of Language Tags and Ranges in the
       Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).

   RFC-3727 ASN.1 Module Definition for the LDAP and X.500 Component Matching Rules
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3727.txt

       This document updates the specification of the component matching rules for Lightweight
       Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and X.500 directories (RFC3687) by collecting the
       Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) definitions of the component matching rules into an
       appropriately identified ASN.1 module so that other specifications may reference the
       component matching rule definitions from within their own ASN.1 modules.

   RFC-3703 Policy Core Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Schema
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3703.txt

       This document defines a mapping of the Policy Core Information Model to a form that can be
       implemented in a directory that uses Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) as its
       access protocol.  This model defines two hierarchies of object classes: structural classes
       representing information for representing and controlling policy data as specified in RFC
       3060, and relationship classes that indicate how instances of the structural classes are
       related to each other.  Classes are also added to the LDAP schema to improve the
       performance of a client's interactions with an LDAP server when the client is retrieving
       large amounts of policy-related information.  These classes exist only to optimize LDAP
       retrievals: there are no classes in the information model that correspond to them.

   RFC-3698 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): Additional Matching Rules
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3698.txt

       This document provides a collection of matching rules for use with the Lightweight
       Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).  As these matching rules are simple adaptations of
       matching rules specified for use with the X.500 Directory, most are already in wide use.

   RFC-3687 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and X.500 Component Matching Rules
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3687.txt

       The syntaxes of attributes in a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) or X.500
       directory range from simple data types, such as text string, integer, or boolean, to
       complex structured data types, such as the syntaxes of the directory schema operational
       attributes.  Matching rules defined for the complex syntaxes usually only provide the most
       immediately useful matching capability.	This document defines generic matching rules that
       can match any user selected component parts in an attribute value of any arbitrarily
       complex attribute syntax.

   RFC-3672 Subentries in the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3672.txt

       In X.500 directories, subentries are special entries used to hold information associated
       with a subtree or subtree refinement.  This document adapts X.500 subentries mechanisms
       for use with the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).

   RFC-3671 Collective Attributes in the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3671.txt

       X.500 collective attributes allow common characteristics to be shared between collections
       of entries.  This document summarizes the X.500 information model for collective
       attributes and describes use of collective attributes in LDAP (Lightweight Directory
       Access Protocol).  This document provides schema definitions for collective attributes for
       use in LDAP.

   RFC-3296 Named Subordinate References in Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
       Directories
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3296.txt

       This document details schema and protocol elements for representing and managing named
       subordinate references in Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Directories.

   RFC-3062 LDAP Password Modify Extended Operation
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3062.txt

       The integration of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and external
       authentication services has introduced non-DN authentication identities and allowed for
       non-directory storage of passwords.  As such, mechanisms which update the directory (e.g.,
       Modify) cannot be used to change a user's password.  This document describes an LDAP
       extended operation to allow modification of user passwords which is not dependent upon the
       form of the authentication identity nor the password storage mechanism used.

   RFC-2891 LDAP Control Extension for Server Side Sorting of Search Results
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2891.txt

       This document describes two LDAPv3 control extensions for server side sorting of search
       results. These controls allows a client to specify the attribute types and matching rules
       a server should use when returning the results to an LDAP search request. The controls may
       be useful when the LDAP client has limited functionality or for some other reason cannot
       sort the results but still needs them sorted. Other permissible controls on search
       operations are not defined in this extension.

   RFC-2849 The LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF) - Technical Specification
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2849.txt

       This document describes a file format suitable for describing directory information or
       modifications made to directory information. The file format, known as LDIF, for LDAP Data
       Interchange Format, is typically used to import and export directory information between
       LDAP-based directory servers, or to describe a set of changes which are to be applied to a
       directory.

   RFC-2831 Using Digest Authentication as a SASL Mechanism
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2831.txt

       This specification defines how HTTP Digest Authentication can be used as a SASL [RFC 2222]
       mechanism for any protocol that has a SASL profile. It is intended both as an improvement
       over CRAM-MD5 [RFC 2195] and as a convenient way to support a single authentication
       mechanism for web, mail, LDAP, and other protocols.

   RFC-2739 Calendar Attributes for vCard and LDAP
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2739.txt

       When scheduling a calendar entity, such as an event, it is a prerequisite that an
       organizer has the calendar address of each attendee that will be invited to the event.
       Additionally, access to an attendee's current "busy time" provides an a priori indication
       of whether the attendee will be free to participate in the event. In order to meet these
       challenges, a calendar user agent (CUA) needs a mechanism to locate individual user's
       calendar and free/busy time. This memo defines three mechanisms for obtaining a URI to a
       user's calendar and free/busy time. These include:

   RFC-2589 Extensions for Dynamic Directory Services
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2589.txt

       LDAP supports lightweight access to static directory services, allowing relatively fast
       search and update access. Static directory services store information about people that
       persists in its accuracy and value over a long period of time. Dynamic directory services
       are different in that they store information about people that only persists in its
       accuracy and value while people are online. Though the protocol operations and attributes
       used by dynamic directory services are similar to the ones used for static directory
       services, clients that are bound to a dynamic directory service need to periodically
       refresh their presence at the server to keep directory entries from getting stale in the
       presence of client application crashes. A flow control mechanism from the server is also
       described that allows a server to inform clients how often they should refresh their
       presence.

   RFC-2559 Internet X.509 Public Key Infrastructure Operational Protocols - LDAPv2
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2559.txt

       The protocol described in this document is designed to satisfy some of the operational
       requirements within the Internet X.509 PKI. Specifically, this document addresses
       requirements to provide access to PKI repositories for the purposes of retrieving PKI
       information and managing that same information.	The mechanism described in this document
       is based on the LDAPv2, defined in RFC 1777, defining a profile of that protocol for use
       within the PKIX and updates encodings for certificates and revocation lists from RFC 1778.
       Additional mechanisms addressing PKIX operational requirements are specified in separate
       documents.

   RFC-2247 Using Domains in LDAP/X.500 Distinguished Names
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2247.txt

       LDAP uses X.500-compatible distinguished names for providing unique identification of
       entries. This document defines an algorithm by which a name registered with the Internet
       Domain Name Service can be represented as an LDAP distinguished name.

   RFC-2222 Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL)
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2222.txt

       This document describes a method for adding authentication support to connection-based
       protocols. To use this specification, a protocol includes a command for identifying and
       authenticating a user to a server and for optionally negotiating protection of subsequent
       protocol interactions. If its use is negotiated, a security layer is inserted between the
       protocol and the connection. This document describes how a protocol specifies such a
       command, defines several mechanisms for use by the command, and defines the protocol used
       for carrying a negotiated security layer over the connection.

   RFC-2218 A Common Schema for the Internet White Pages Service
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2218.txt

       This IETF Integrated Directory Services(IDS) Working Group proposes a standard
       specification for a simple Internet White Pages service by defining a common schema for
       use by the various White Pages servers. This schema is independent of specific
       implementations of the White Pages service. This document specifies the minimum set of
       core attributes of a White Pages entry for an individual and describes how new objects
       with those attributes can be defined and published. It does not describe how to represent
       other objects in the White Pages service. Further, it does not address the search sort
       expectations within a particular service.

   RFC-2164 Use of an X.500/LDAP directory to support MIXER address mapping
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2164.txt

       MIXER (RFC 2156) defines an algorithm for use of a set of global mapping between X.400 and
       RFC 822 addresses. This specification defines how to represent and maintain these mappings
       (MIXER Conformant Global Address Mappings of MCGAMs) in an X.500 or LDAP directory.
       Mechanisms for representing OR Address and Domain hierarchies within the DIT. These
       techniques are used to define two independent subtrees in the DIT, which contain the
       mapping information.

   RFC-2079 Definition of an X.500 Attribute Type and an Object Class to Hold Uniform Resource
       Identifiers
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2079.txt

       URLs are being widely used to specify the location of Internet resources. There is an
       urgent need to be able to include URLs in directories that conform to the LDAP and X.500
       information models, and a desire to include other types of URIs as they are defined. A
       number of independent groups are already experimenting with the inclusion of URLs in LDAP
       and X.500 directories. This document builds on the experimentation to date and defines a
       new attribute type and an auxiliary object class to allow URIs, including URLs, to be
       stored in directory entries in a standard way.

Other LDAP Related RFCs - Best Current Practice
   RFC-4521 Considerations for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Extensions
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4521.txt

       The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is extensible.	It provides mechanisms
       for adding new operations, extending existing operations, and expanding user and system
       schemas.  This document discusses considerations for designers of LDAP extensions.

   RFC-4520 Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) Considerations for the Lightweight
       Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4520.txt

       This document provides procedures for registering extensible elements of the Lightweight
       Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).  The document also provides guidelines to the Internet
       Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) describing conditions under which new values can be
       assigned.

   RFC-2148 Deployment of the Internet White Pages Service
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2148.txt

       The Internet is used for information exchange and communication between its users. It can
       only be effective as such if users are able to find each other's addresses. Therefore the
       Internet benefits from an adequate White Pages Service, i.e., a directory service offering
       (Internet) address information related to people and organizations.

       This document describes the way in which the Internet White Pages Service (from now on
       abbreviated as IWPS) is best exploited using today's experience, today's protocols,
       today's products and today's procedures.

   RFC-5803 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Schema for Storing Salted Challenge
       Response Authentication Mechanism (SCRAM) Secrets
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc5803.txt

       This memo describes how the "authPassword" Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
       attribute can be used for storing secrets used by the Salted Challenge Response
       Authentication Mechanism (SCRAM) mechanism in the Simple Authentication and Security Layer
       (SASL) framework.

   RFC-4876 A Configuration Profile Schema for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)-Based
       Agents
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4828.txt

       This document consists of two primary components, a schema for agents that make use of the
       Lightweight Directory Access protocol (LDAP) and a proposed use case of that schema, for
       distributed configuration of similar directory user agents.  A set of attribute types and
       an object class are proposed.  In the proposed use case, directory user agents (DUAs) can
       use this schema to determine directory data location and access parameters for specific
       services they support.  In addition, in the proposed use case, attribute and object class
       mapping allows DUAs to reconfigure their expected (default) schema to match that of the
       end user's environment.	This document is intended to be a skeleton for future documents
       that describe configuration of specific DUA services.

   RFC-4529 Requesting Attributes by Object Class in the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol
       (LDAP)
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4829.txt

       The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) search operation provides mechanisms for
       clients to request all user application attributes, all operational attributes, and/or
       attributes selected by their description.  This document extends LDAP to support a
       mechanism that LDAP clients may use to request the return of all attributes of an object
       class.

   RFC-4525 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Modify-Increment Extension
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4525.txt

       This document describes an extension to the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
       Modify operation to support an increment capability.  This extension is useful in
       provisioning applications, especially when combined with the assertion control and/or the
       pre- read or post-read control extension.

   RFC-4403 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Schema for Universal Description,
       Discovery, and Integration version 3 (UDDIv3)
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4403.txt

       This document defines the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAPv3) schema for
       representing Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) data types in an
       LDAP directory.	It defines the LDAP object class and attribute definitions and
       containment rules to model UDDI entities, defined in the UDDI version 3 information model,
       in an LDAPv3-compliant directory.

   RFC-4373 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Bulk Update/Replication Protocol (LBURP)
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4373.txt

       The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Bulk Update/Replication Protocol (LBURP)
       allows an LDAP client to perform a bulk update to an LDAP server.  The protocol frames a
       sequenced set of update operations within a pair of LDAP extended operations to notify the
       server that the update operations in the framed set are related in such a way that the
       ordering of all operations can be preserved during processing even when they are sent
       asynchronously by the client.  Update operations can be grouped within a single protocol
       message to maximize the efficiency of client-server communication.

       The protocol is suitable for efficiently making a substantial set of updates to the
       entries in an LDAP server.

   RFC-3944 H.350 Directory Services
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3944.txt

       The International Telecommunications Union Standardization Sector (ITU-T) has created the
       H.350 series of Recommendations that specify directory services architectures in support
       of multimedia conferencing protocols.  The goal of the architecture is to 'directory
       enable' multimedia conferencing so that these services can leverage existing identity
       management and enterprise directories.  A particular goal is to enable an enterprise or
       service provider to maintain a canonical source of users and their multimedia conferencing
       systems, so that multiple call servers from multiple vendors, supporting multiple
       protocols, can all access the same data store.

       Because SIP is an IETF standard, the contents of H.350 and H.350.4 are made available via
       this document to the IETF community.  This document contains the entire normative text of
       ITU-T Recommendations H.350 and H.350.4 in sections 4 and 5, respectively.  The remaining
       sections are included only in this document, not in the ITU-T version.

   RFC-3829 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Authorization Identity Request and
       Response Controls
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3829.txt

       This document extends the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) bind operation with
       a mechanism for requesting and returning the authorization identity it establishes.
       Specifically, this document defines the Authorization Identity Request and Response
       controls for use with the Bind operation.

   RFC-3712 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): Schema for Printer Services
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3712.txt

       This document defines a schema, object classes and attributes, for printers and printer
       services, for use with directories that support Lightweight Directory Access Protocol v3
       (LDAP-TS).  This document is based on the printer attributes listed in Appendix E of
       Internet Printing Protocol/1.1 (IPP) (RFC 2911).  A few additional printer attributes are
       based on definitions in the Printer MIB (RFC 1759).

   RFC-3494 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol version 2 (LDAPv2) to Historic Status
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3494.txt

       This document recommends the retirement of version 2 of the Lightweight Directory Access
       Protocol (LDAPv2) and other dependent specifications, and discusses the reasons for doing
       so.  This document recommends RFC 1777, 1778, 1779, 1781, and 2559 (as well as documents
       they superseded) be moved to Historic status.

   RFC-3384 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (version 3) Replication Requirements
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3384.txt

       This document discusses the fundamental requirements for replication of data accessible
       via the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (version 3) (LDAPv3).  It is intended to be
       a gathering place for general replication requirements needed to provide interoperability
       between informational directories.

   RFC-3112 LDAP Authentication Password Schema
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3112.txt

       This document describes schema in support of user/password authentication in a LDAP
       (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) directory including the authPassword attribute
       type.  This attribute type holds values derived from the user's password(s) (commonly
       using cryptographic strength one-way hash).  authPassword is intended to used instead of
       userPassword.

   RFC-3045 Storing Vendor Information in the LDAP root DSE
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3045.txt

       This document specifies two Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) attributes,
       vendorName and vendorVersion that MAY be included in the root DSA-specific Entry (DSE) to
       advertise vendor-specific information.  These two attributes supplement the attributes
       defined in section 3.4 of RFC 2251.

   RFC-2985 PKCS #9: Selected Object Classes and Attribute Types Version 2.0
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2985.txt

       This memo provides a selection of object classes and attribute types for use in
       conjunction with public-key cryptography and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
       accessible directories.	It also includes ASN.1 syntax for all constructs.

   RFC-2967 TISDAG - Technical Infrastructure for Swedish Directory Access Gateways
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2967.txt

       The strength of the TISDAG (Technical Infrastructure for Swedish Directory Access
       Gateways) project's DAG proposal is that it defines the necessary technical infrastructure
       to provide a single-access- point service for information on Swedish Internet users.  The
       resulting service will provide uniform access for all information -- the same level of
       access to information (7x24 service), and the same information made available,
       irrespective of the service provider responsible for maintaining that information, their
       directory service protocols, or the end-user's client access protocol.

   RFC-2927 MIME Directory Profile for LDAP Schema
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2927.txt

       This document defines a multipurpose internet mail extensions (MIME) directory profile for
       holding a lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP) schema.  It is intended for
       communication with the Internet schema listing service.

   RFC-2926 Conversion of LDAP Schemas to and from SLP Templates
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2926.txt

       This document describes a procedure for mapping between Service Location Protocol (SLP)
       service advertisements and lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP) descriptions of
       services.  The document covers two aspects of the mapping.  One aspect is mapping between
       SLP service type templates and LDAP directory schema.  Because the SLP service type
       template grammar is relatively simple, mapping from service type templates to LDAP types
       is straightforward.  Mapping in the other direction is straightforward if the attributes
       are restricted to use just a few of the syntaxes defined in RFC 2252.  If arbitrary ASN.1
       types occur in the schema, then the mapping is more complex and may even be impossible.
       The second aspect is representation of service information in an LDAP directory.  The
       recommended representation simplifies interoperability with SLP by allowing SLP directory
       agents to backend into LDAP directory servers.  The resulting system allows service
       advertisements to propagate easily between SLP and LDAP.

   RFC-2820 Access Control Requirements for LDAP
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2820.txt

       This document describes the fundamental requirements of an access control list (ACL) model
       for the LDAP directory service.	It is intended to be a gathering place for access control
       requirements needed to provide authorized access to and interoperability between
       directories.

   RFC-2798 Definition of the inetOrgPerson Object Class
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2798.txt

       While the X.500 standards define many useful attribute types [X520] and object classes
       [X521], they do not define a person object class that meets the requirements found in
       today's Internet and Intranet directory service deployments. We define a new object class
       called inetOrgPerson for use in LDAP and X.500 directory services that extends the X.521
       standard organizationalPerson class to meet these needs.

   RFC-2714 Schema for Representing CORBA Objects in an LDAP Directory
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2714.txt

       CORBA is the Common Object Request Broker Architecture defined by the Object Management
       Group. This document defines the schema for representing CORBA object references in an
       LDAP directory.

   RFC-2713 Schema for Representing Java Objects in an LDAP Directory
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2713.txt

       This document defines the schema for representing Java objects in an LDAP directory. It
       defines schema elements to represent a Java serialized object, a Java marshalled object, a
       Java remote object, and a JNDI reference.

   RFC-2696 LDAP Control Extension for Simple Paged Results Manipulation
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2696.txt

       This document describes an LDAPv3 control extension for simple paging of search results.
       This control extension allows a client to control the rate at which an LDAP server returns
       the results of an LDAP search operation. This control may be useful when the LDAP client
       has limited resources and may not be able to process the entire result set from a given
       LDAP query, or when the LDAP client is connected over a low-bandwidth connection. Other
       operations on the result set are not defined in this extension. This extension is not
       designed to provide more sophisticated result set management.

   RFC-1823 The LDAP Application Program Interface
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1823.txt

       This document defines a C language application program interface to LDAP, which is
       designed to be powerful, yet simple to use. It defines compatible synchronous and
       asynchronous interfaces to LDAP to suit a wide variety of applications. This document
       gives a brief overview of the LDAP model, then an overview of how the API is used by an
       application program to obtain LDAP information. The API calls are described in detail,
       followed by an appendix that provides some example code demonstrating the use of the API.

Other LDAP Related RFCs - Experimental
   RFC-5805 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Transactions
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc5805.txt

       Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) update operations, such as Add, Delete, and
       Modify operations, have atomic, consistency, isolation, durability (ACID) properties.
       Each of these update operations act upon an entry.  It is often desirable to update two or
       more entries in a single unit of interaction, a transaction.  Transactions are necessary
       to support a number of applications including resource provisioning.  This document
       extends LDAP to support transactions.

   RFC-4533 The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Content Synchronization Operation
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4533.txt

       This specification describes the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Content
       Synchronization Operation.  The operation allows a client to maintain a copy of a fragment
       of the Directory Information Tree (DIT).  It supports both polling for changes and
       listening for changes.  The operation is defined as an extension of the LDAP Search
       Operation.

   RFC-4531 Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Turn Operation
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4531.txt

       This specification describes a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) extended
       operation to reverse (or "turn") the roles of client and server for subsequent protocol
       exchanges in the session, or to enable each peer to act as both client and server with
       respect to the other.

   RFC-3663 Domain Administrative Data in Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3663.txt

       Domain registration data has typically been exposed to the general public via
       Nicname/Whois for administrative purposes.  This document describes the Referral
       Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Service, an experimental service using LDAP
       and well-known LDAP types to make domain administrative data available.

   RFC-3088 OpenLDAP Root Service - An experimental LDAP referral service
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3088.txt

       The OpenLDAP Project is operating an experimental LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access
       Protocol) referral service known as the "OpenLDAP Root Service".  The automated system
       generates referrals based upon service location information published in DNS SRV RRs
       (Domain Name System location of services resource records).  This document describes this
       service.

   RFC-2657 LDAPv2 Client vs. the Index Mesh
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2657.txt

       LDAPv2 clients as implemented according to RFC 1777 have no notion of referral. The
       integration between such a client and an Index Mesh, as defined by the Common Indexing
       Protocol, heavily depends on referrals and therefore needs to be handled in a special way.
       This document defines one possible way of doing this.

   RFC-2649 Signed Directory Operations Using S/MIME
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2649.txt

       This document defines an LDAPv3 based mechanism for signing directory operations in order
       to create a secure journal of changes that have been made to each directory entry. Both
       client and server based signatures are supported. An object class for subsequent retrieval
       are 'journal entries' is also defined. This document specifies LDAPv3 controls that enable
       this functionality. It also defines an LDAPv3 schema that allows for subsequent browsing
       of the journal information.

   RFC-2307 An Approach for Using LDAP as a Network Information Service
       http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2307.txt

       This document describes an experimental mechanism for mapping entities related to TCP/IP
       and the UNIX system into X.500 entries so that they may be resolved with the LDAP. A set
       of attribute types and object classes are proposed, along with specific guidelines for
       interpreting them. The intention is to assist the deployment of LDAP as an organizational
       nameservice.  No proposed solutions are intended as standards for the Internet. Rather, it
       is hoped that a general consensus will emerge as to the appropriate solution to such
       problems, leading eventually to the adoption of standards. The proposed mechanism has
       already been implemented with some success.

Expired but still interesting Internet Drafts
   draft-wahl-ldap-adminaddr -- Administrator Address Attribute
       Organizations running multiple directory servers need an ability for administrators to
       determine who is responsible for a particular server. This is conceptually similar to the
       'sysContact' object of SNMP. The administratorsAddress attribute allows a server
       administrator to provide the contact information of the responsible party for an LDAP
       server. This can be used by management clients which are, for example, checking the state
       of a replication or referral topology, to provide a way for the user of the management
       client to send email to manager of a particular server.

   draft-zeilenga-ldap-noop -- The LDAP No-Op Control
       This document defines the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) No-Op control which
       can be used to disable the normal effect of an operation.  The control can be used to
       discover how a server might react to a particular update request without updating the
       directory.

   draft-legg-ldap-transfer -- Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP): Transfer Encoding
       Options
       Each attribute stored in a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory has a
       defined syntax (i.e., data type).  A syntax definition specifies how attribute values
       conforming to the syntax are normally represented when transferred in LDAP operations.
       This representation is referred to as the LDAP-specific encoding to distinguish it from
       other methods of encoding attribute values.  This document introduces a new category of
       attribute options, called transfer encoding options, that can be used to specify that the
       associated attribute values are encoded according to one of these other methods.

   draft-furuseth-ldap-untypedobject -- Structural object class 'namedObject' for LDAP/X.500
       This document defines an 'namedObject' structural object class for the Lightweight
       Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and X.500.  This is useful for entries with no natural
       choice of structural object class, e.g. if an entry must exist even though its contents
       are uninteresting.

   draft-wahl-ldap-p3p -- P3P Policy Attributes for LDAP
       This document defines attributes that can be retrieved via Lightweight Directory Access
       Protocol version 3 (LDAP) requests, which contain URIs pointing to the privacy policy
       documents.  These documents describe the privacy policy concerning access to a directory
       server, and the privacy policies that apply to the contents of the directory (a subtree of
       entries).

   draft-chu-ldap-xordered -- Ordered Entries and Values in LDAP
       As LDAP is used more extensively for managing various kinds of data, one often encounters
       a need to preserve both the ordering and the content of data, despite the inherently
       unordered structure of entries and attribute values in the directory.  This document
       describes a scheme to attach ordering information to attributes in a directory so that the
       ordering may be preserved and propagated to other LDAP applications.

   draft-chu-ldap-logschema -- A Schema for Logging the LDAP Protocol
       In order to facilitate remote administration and auditing of LDAP server operation, it is
       desirable to provide the server's operational logs themselves as a searchable LDAP
       directory.  These logs may also be used as a persistent change log to support various
       replication mechanisms.	This document defines a schema that may be used to represent all
       of the requests that have been processed by an LDAP server.  It may be used by various
       applications for auditing, flight recorder, replication, and other purposes.

   draft-zeilenga-ldap-relax -- The LDAP Relax Rules Control
       This document defines the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Relax Rules Control
       which allows a directory user agent (a client) to request the directory service
       temporarily relax enforcement of various data and service model rules.

   draft-gpaterno-dhcp-ldap -- DHCP Option for LDAP Directory Services discovery
       This document defines a new DHCP option for delivering configuration information for LDAP
       services. Through this option, the client receives an LDAP URL [8] of the closest
       available LDAP server/replica that can be used to authenticate users or look up any useful
       data.

   draft-schleiff-ldap-xri -- LDAP Schema for eXtensible Resource Identifier (XRI)
       This document describes Attribute Types and an Object Class for use in representing XRI
       (eXtensible Resource Identifier) values in LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol)
       and X.500 directory services.

   draft-wahl-ldap-session -- LDAP Session Tracking Control
       Many network devices, application servers, and middleware components of a enterprise
       software infrastructure generate some form of session tracking identifiers, which are
       useful when analyzing activity and accounting logs to group activity relating to a
       particular session.  This document discusses how Lightweight Directory Access Protocol
       version 3 (LDAP) clients can include session tracking identifiers with their LDAP
       requests.  This information is provided through controls in the requests the clients send
       to LDAP servers.  The LDAP server receiving these controls can include the session
       tracking identifiers the the log messages it writes, enabling LDAP requests in the LDAP
       server's logs to be correlated with activity in logs of other components in the
       infrastructure.	The control also enables session tracking information to be generated by
       LDAP servers and returned to clients and other servers.	Three formats of session tracking
       identifiers are defined in this document.

   draft-wahl-ldap-subtree-source -- LDAP Subtree Data Source URI Attribute
       This document defines an attribute that enables administrative clients using the
       Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) to determine the source of directory entries.

   draft-ietf-ldapext-psearch -- Persistent Search: A Simple LDAP Change Notification Mechanism
       This document defines two controls that extend the LDAPv3 search operation to provide a
       simple mechanism by which an LDAP client can receive notification of changes that occur in
       an LDAP server. The mechanism is designed to be very flexible yet easy for clients and
       servers to implement.

   draft-ietf-ldapext-ldapv3-vlv -- LDAP Extensions for Scrolling View Browsing of Search Results
       This document describes a Virtual List View control  extension  for  the LDAP  Search
       operation.  This control is designed to allow the "virtual list box" feature, common in
       existing  commercial  e-mail  address  book applications, to be supported efficiently by
       LDAP servers. LDAP servers' inability to support this client feature is a significant
       impediment  to LDAP replacing proprietary protocols in commercial e-mail systems.

       The control allows a client to specify that the	server	return,  for  a given  LDAP
       search with associated sort keys, a contiguous subset of the search result set. This
       subset is specified in terms of offsets into the ordered list, or in terms of a greater
       than or equal comparison value.
