+
+1. Status of this Memo
+
+   This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the
+   Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
+   improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet
+   Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state
+   and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

+
+IESG Note
+
+   This document describes a directory access protocol that provides
+   both read and update access.  Update access requires secure
+   authentication, but this document does not mandate implementation of
+   any satisfactory authentication mechanisms.
+
+   In accordance with RFC 2026, section 4.4.1, this specification is
+   being approved by IESG as a Proposed Standard despite this
+   limitation, for the following reasons:
+
+   a. to encourage implementation and interoperability testing of
+      these protocols (with or without update access) before they
+      are deployed, and
+
+   b. to encourage deployment and use of these protocols in read-only
+      applications.  (e.g. applications where LDAPv3 is used as
+      a query language for directories which are updated by some
+      secure mechanism other than LDAP), and

+
+
+   c. to avoid delaying the advancement and deployment of other Internet
+      standards-track protocols which require the ability to query, but
+      not update, LDAPv3 directory servers.
+
+   Readers are hereby warned that until mandatory authentication
+   mechanisms are standardized, clients and servers written according to
+   this specification which make use of update functionality are
+   UNLIKELY TO INTEROPERATE, or MAY INTEROPERATE ONLY IF AUTHENTICATION
+   IS REDUCED TO AN UNACCEPTABLY WEAK LEVEL.
+
+   Implementors are hereby discouraged from deploying LDAPv3 clients or
+   servers which implement the update functionality, until a Proposed
+   Standard for mandatory authentication in LDAPv3 has been approved and
+   published as an RFC.
+
+2. Abstract
+
+   The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) [1] requires that
+   the contents of AttributeValue fields in protocol elements be octet
+   strings.  This document defines a set of syntaxes for LDAPv3, and the
+   rules by which attribute values of these syntaxes are represented as
+   octet strings for transmission in the LDAP protocol.  The syntaxes
+   defined in this document are referenced by this and other documents
+   that define attribute types.  This document also defines the set of
+   attribute types which LDAP servers should support.
+
+3. Overview
+
+   This document defines the framework for developing schemas for
+   directories accessible via the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol.
+
+   Schema is the collection of attribute type definitions, object class
+   definitions and other information which a server uses to determine
+   how to match a filter or attribute value assertion (in a compare
+   operation) against the attributes of an entry, and whether to permit
+   add and modify operations.
+
+   Section 4 states the general requirements and notations for attribute
+   types, object classes, syntax and matching rule definitions.
+
+   Section 5 lists attributes, section 6 syntaxes and section 7 object
+   classes.
+
+   Additional documents define schemas for representing real-world
+   objects as directory entries.

+4. General Issues
+
+   This document describes encodings used in an Internet protocol.
+
+   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
+   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED",  "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
+   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [4].
+
+   Attribute Type and Object Class definitions are written in a string
+   representation of the AttributeTypeDescription and
+   ObjectClassDescription data types defined in X.501(93) [3].
+   Implementors are strongly advised to first read the description of
+   how schema is represented in X.500 before reading the rest of this
+   document.
+
+4.1. Common Encoding Aspects
+
+   For the purposes of defining the encoding rules for attribute
+   syntaxes, the following BNF definitions will be used.  They are based
+   on the BNF styles of RFC 822 [13].
+
+    a     = "a" / "b" / "c" / "d" / "e" / "f" / "g" / "h" / "i" /
+            "j" / "k" / "l" / "m" / "n" / "o" / "p" / "q" / "r" /
+            "s" / "t" / "u" / "v" / "w" / "x" / "y" / "z" / "A" /
+            "B" / "C" / "D" / "E" / "F" / "G" / "H" / "I" / "J" /
+            "K" / "L" / "M" / "N" / "O" / "P" / "Q" / "R" / "S" /
+            "T" / "U" / "V" / "W" / "X" / "Y" / "Z"
+
+    d               = "0" / "1" / "2" / "3" / "4" /
+                      "5" / "6" / "7" / "8" / "9"
+
+    hex-digit       =  d / "a" / "b" / "c" / "d" / "e" / "f" /
+                           "A" / "B" / "C" / "D" / "E" / "F"
+
+    k               = a / d / "-" / ";"
+
+    p               = a / d / """ / "(" / ")" / "+" / "," /
+                      "-" / "." / "/" / ":" / "?" / " "
+
+    letterstring    = 1*a
+
+    numericstring   = 1*d
+
+    anhstring       = 1*k
+
+    keystring       = a [ anhstring ]
+
+    printablestring = 1*p

+
+    whsp            = [ space ]
+
+    utf8            = <any sequence of octets formed from the UTF-8 [9]

+
+   In the following BNF for the string representation of OBJECT
+   IDENTIFIERs, descr is the syntactic representation of an object
+   descriptor, which consists of letters and digits, starting with a
+   letter.  An OBJECT IDENTIFIER in the numericoid format should not
+   have leading zeroes (e.g. "0.9.3" is permitted but "0.09.3" should
+   not be generated).
+
+   When encoding 'oid' elements in a value, the descr encoding option
+   SHOULD be used in preference to the numericoid. An object descriptor
+   is a more readable alias for a number OBJECT IDENTIFIER, and these
+   (where assigned and known by the implementation) SHOULD be used in
+   preference to numeric oids to the greatest extent possible.  Examples
+   of object descriptors in LDAP are attribute type, object class and
+   matching rule names.
+
+     oid             = descr / numericoid

+4.2. Attribute Types
+
+   The attribute types are described by sample values for the subschema
+   "attributeTypes" attribute, which is written in the
+   AttributeTypeDescription syntax.  While lines have been folded for
+   readability, the values transferred in protocol would not contain
+   newlines.
+
+   The AttributeTypeDescription is encoded according to the following
+   BNF, and the productions for oid, qdescrs and qdstring are given in
+   section 4.1.  Implementors should note that future versions of this
+   document may have expanded this BNF to include additional terms.
+   Terms which begin with the characters "X-" are reserved for private
+   experiments, and MUST be followed by a <qdstrings>.
+
+      AttributeTypeDescription = "(" whsp
+            numericoid whsp              ; AttributeType identifier
+          [ "NAME" qdescrs ]             ; name used in AttributeType
+          [ "DESC" qdstring ]            ; description
+          [ "OBSOLETE" whsp ]
+          [ "SUP" woid ]                 ; derived from this other
+                                         ; AttributeType
+          [ "EQUALITY" woid              ; Matching Rule name
+          [ "ORDERING" woid              ; Matching Rule name
+          [ "SUBSTR" woid ]              ; Matching Rule name
+          [ "SYNTAX" whsp noidlen whsp ] ; see section 4.3
+          [ "SINGLE-VALUE" whsp ]        ; default multi-valued
+          [ "COLLECTIVE" whsp ]          ; default not collective
+          [ "NO-USER-MODIFICATION" whsp ]; default user modifiable
+          [ "USAGE" whsp AttributeUsage ]; default userApplications
+          whsp ")"
+
+      AttributeUsage =
+          "userApplications"     /
+          "directoryOperation"   /
+          "distributedOperation" / ; DSA-shared
+          "dSAOperation"          ; DSA-specific, value depends on server
+
+   Servers are not required to provide the same or any text in the
+   description part of the subschema values they maintain.  Servers
+   SHOULD provide at least one of the "SUP" and "SYNTAX" fields for each
+   AttributeTypeDescription.
+
+   Servers MUST implement all the attribute types referenced in sections
+   5.1, 5.2 and 5.3.

+
+
+   Servers MAY recognize additional names and attributes not listed in
+   this document, and if they do so, MUST publish the definitions of the
+   types in the attributeTypes attribute of their subschema entries.
+
+   Schema developers MUST NOT create attribute definitions whose names
+   conflict with attributes defined for use with LDAP in existing
+   standards-track RFCs.
+
+   An AttributeDescription can be used as the value in a NAME part of an
+   AttributeTypeDescription.  Note that these are case insensitive.
+
+   Note that the AttributeTypeDescription does not list the matching
+   rules which can can be used with that attribute type in an
+   extensibleMatch search filter.  This is done using the
+   matchingRuleUse attribute described in section 4.5.
+
+   This document refines the schema description of X.501 by requiring
+   that the syntax field in an AttributeTypeDescription be a string
+   representation of an OBJECT IDENTIFIER for the LDAP string syntax
+   definition, and an optional indication of the maximum length of a
+   value of this attribute (defined in section 4.3.2).
+
+4.3. Syntaxes
+
+   This section defines general requirements for LDAP attribute value
+   syntax encodings. All documents defining attribute syntax encodings
+   for use with LDAP are expected to conform to these requirements.
+
+   The encoding rules defined for a given attribute syntax must produce
+   octet strings.  To the greatest extent possible, encoded octet
+   strings should be usable in their native encoded form for display
+   purposes. In particular, encoding rules for attribute syntaxes
+   defining non-binary values should produce strings that can be
+   displayed with little or no translation by clients implementing LDAP.
+   There are a few cases (e.g. audio) however, when it is not sensible
+   to produce a printable representation, and clients MUST NOT assume
+   that an unrecognized syntax is a string representation.
+
+   In encodings where an arbitrary string, not a Distinguished Name, is
+   used as part of a larger production, and other than as part of a
+   Distinguished Name, a backslash quoting mechanism is used to escape
+   the following separator symbol character (such as "'", "$" or "#") if
+   it should occur in that string.  The backslash is followed by a pair
+   of hexadecimal digits representing the next character.  A backslash
+   itself in the string which forms part of a larger syntax is always
+   transmitted as '\5C' or '\5c'. An example is given in section 6.27.

+
+
+   Syntaxes are also defined for matching rules whose assertion value
+   syntax is different from the attribute value syntax.
+
+4.3.1  Binary Transfer of Values
+
+   This encoding format is used if the binary encoding is requested by
+   the client for an attribute, or if the attribute syntax name is
+   "1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.5".  The contents of the LDAP
+   AttributeValue or AssertionValue field is a BER-encoded instance of
+   the attribute value or a matching rule assertion value ASN.1 data
+   type as defined for use with X.500. (The first byte inside the OCTET
+   STRING wrapper is a tag octet.  However, the OCTET STRING is still
+   encoded in primitive form.)
+
+   All servers MUST implement this form for both generating attribute
+   values in search responses, and parsing attribute values in add,
+   compare and modify requests, if the attribute type is recognized and
+   the attribute syntax name is that of Binary.  Clients which request
+   that all attributes be returned from entries MUST be prepared to
+   receive values in binary (e.g. userCertificate;binary), and SHOULD
+   NOT simply display binary or unrecognized values to users.
+
+4.3.2. Syntax Object Identifiers
+
+   Syntaxes for use with LDAP are named by OBJECT IDENTIFIERs, which are
+   dotted-decimal strings.  These are not intended to be displayed to
+   users.
+
+   noidlen = numericoid [ "{" len "}" ]
+
+   len     = numericstring
+
+   The following table lists some of the syntaxes that have been defined
+   for LDAP thus far.  The H-R column suggests whether a value in that
+   syntax would likely be a human readable string.  Clients and servers
+   need not implement all the syntaxes listed here, and MAY implement
+   other syntaxes.
+
+   Other documents may define additional syntaxes.  However, the
+   definition of additional arbitrary syntaxes is strongly deprecated
+   since it will hinder interoperability: today's client and server
+   implementations generally do not have the ability to dynamically
+   recognize new syntaxes.  In most cases attributes will be defined
+   with the syntax for directory strings.

+
+   A suggested minimum upper bound on the number of characters in value
+   with a string-based syntax, or the number of bytes in a value for all
+   other syntaxes, may be indicated by appending this bound count inside
+   of curly braces following the syntax name's OBJECT IDENTIFIER in an
+   Attribute Type Description.  This bound is not part of the syntax
+   name itself.  For instance, "1.3.6.4.1.1466.0{64}" suggests that
+   server implementations should allow a string to be 64 characters
+   long, although they may allow longer strings.  Note that a single
+   character of the Directory String syntax may be encoded in more than
+   one byte since UTF-8 is a variable-length encoding.
+
+4.3.3. Syntax Description
+
+   The following BNF may be used to associate a short description with a
+   syntax OBJECT IDENTIFIER. Implementors should note that future
+   versions of this document may expand this definition to include
+   additional terms.  Terms whose identifier begins with "X-" are
+   reserved for private experiments, and MUST be followed by a
+   <qdstrings>.
+
+      SyntaxDescription = "(" whsp
+          numericoid whsp
+          [ "DESC" qdstring ]
+          whsp ")"
+
+4.4. Object Classes
+
+   The format for representation of object classes is defined in X.501
+   [3]. In general every entry will contain an abstract class ("top" or
+   "alias"), at least one structural object class, and zero or more
+   auxiliary object classes.  Whether an object class is abstract,
+   structural or auxiliary is defined when the object class identifier
+   is assigned.  An object class definition should not be changed
+   without having a new identifier assigned to it.

+
+
+   Object class descriptions are written according to the following BNF.
+   Implementors should note that future versions of this document may
+   expand this definition to include additional terms.  Terms whose
+   identifier begins with "X-" are reserved for private experiments, and
+   MUST be followed by a <qdstrings> encoding.
+
+      ObjectClassDescription = "(" whsp
+          numericoid whsp      ; ObjectClass identifier
+          [ "NAME" qdescrs ]
+          [ "DESC" qdstring ]

+      whsp ")"
+
+   These are described as sample values for the subschema
+   "objectClasses" attribute for a server which implements the LDAP
+   schema. While lines have been folded for readability, the values
+   transferred in protocol would not contain newlines.
+
+   Servers SHOULD implement all the object classes referenced in section
+   7, except for extensibleObject, which is optional. Servers MAY
+   implement additional object classes not listed in this document, and
+   if they do so, MUST publish the definitions of the classes in the
+   objectClasses attribute of their subschema entries.
+
+   Schema developers MUST NOT create object class definitions whose
+   names conflict with attributes defined for use with LDAP in existing
+   standards-track RFCs.
+
+4.5. Matching Rules
+
+   Matching rules are used by servers to compare attribute values
+   against assertion values when performing Search and Compare
+   operations.  They are also used to identify the value to be added or
+   deleted when modifying entries, and are used when comparing a
+   purported distinguished name with the name of an entry.
+
+   Most of the attributes given in this document will have an equality
+   matching rule defined.
+
+   Matching rule descriptions are written according to the following
+   BNF.  Implementors should note that future versions of this document
+   may have expanded this BNF to include additional terms.  Terms whose
+   identifier begins with "X-" are reserved for private experiments, and
+

+          [ "NAME" qdescrs ]
+          [ "DESC" qdstring ]
+          [ "OBSOLETE" whsp ]
+          "SYNTAX" numericoid
+      whsp ")"
+
+   Values of the matchingRuleUse list the attributes which are suitable
+   for use with an extensible matching rule.
+
+      MatchingRuleUseDescription = "(" whsp
+          numericoid whsp  ; MatchingRule identifier
+          [ "NAME" qdescrs ]
+          [ "DESC" qdstring ]
+          [ "OBSOLETE" ]
+         "APPLIES" oids    ; AttributeType identifiers
+      whsp ")"
+
+   Servers which support matching rules and the extensibleMatch SHOULD
+   implement all the matching rules in section 8.
+
+   Servers MAY implement additional matching rules not listed in this
+   document, and if they do so, MUST publish the definitions of the
+   matching rules in the matchingRules attribute of their subschema
+   entries. If the server supports the extensibleMatch, then the server
+   MUST publish the relationship between the matching rules and
+   attributes in the matchingRuleUse attribute.
+
+   For example, a server which implements a privately-defined matching
+   rule for performing sound-alike matches on Directory String-valued
+   attributes would include the following in the subschema entry
+   (1.2.3.4.5 is an example, the OID of an actual matching rule would be
+   different):
+
+   matchingRule: ( 1.2.3.4.5 NAME 'soundAlikeMatch'
+    SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 )
+
+   If this matching rule could be used with the attributes 2.5.4.41 and
+   2.5.4.15, the following would also be present:
+
+   matchingRuleUse: ( 1.2.3.4.5 APPLIES (2.5.4.41 $ 2.5.4.15) )
+
+
+

+RFC 2252                   LADPv3 Attributes               December 1997
+
+
+   A client could then make use of this matching rule by sending a
+   search operation in which the filter is of the extensibleMatch
+   choice, the matchingRule field is "soundAlikeMatch", and the type
+   field is "2.5.4.41" or "2.5.4.15".
+
+5. Attribute Types

+   defined in this section.

+
+6.5. Certificate
+
+   ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.8 DESC 'Certificate' )
+
+   Because of the changes from X.509(1988) and X.509(1993) and
+   additional changes to the ASN.1 definition to support certificate
+   extensions, no string representation is defined, and values in this
+   syntax MUST only be transferred using the binary encoding, by

+
+   Because of the incompatibility of the X.509(1988) and X.509(1993)
+   definitions of revocation lists, values in this syntax MUST only be
+   transferred using a binary encoding, by requesting or returning the
+   attributes with descriptions "certificateRevocationList;binary" or

+6.7. Certificate Pair
+
+   ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.10 DESC 'Certificate Pair' )

+
+   ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.11 DESC 'Country String' )
+
+   A value in this syntax is encoded the same as a value of Directory
+   String syntax.  Note that this syntax is limited to values of exactly
+   two printable string characters, as listed in ISO 3166 [14].

+
+   ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.12 DESC 'DN' )
+
+   Values in the Distinguished Name syntax are encoded to have the
+   representation defined in [5].  Note that this representation is not
+   reversible to an ASN.1 encoding used in X.500 for Distinguished
+   Names, as the CHOICE of any DirectoryString element in an RDN is no

+6.10. Directory String
+
+   ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 DESC 'Directory String' )
+
+   A string in this syntax is encoded in the UTF-8 form of ISO 10646 (a
+   superset of Unicode).  Servers and clients MUST be prepared to
+   receive encodings of arbitrary Unicode characters, including
+   characters not presently assigned to any character set.
+
+   For characters in the PrintableString form, the value is encoded as
+   the string value itself.
+
+   If it is of the TeletexString form, then the characters are
+   transliterated to their equivalents in UniversalString, and encoded
+   in UTF-8 [9].

+
+
+   If it is of the UniversalString or BMPString forms [10], UTF-8 is
+   used to encode them.
+
+   Note: the form of DirectoryString is not indicated in protocol unless
+   the attribute value is carried in binary.  Servers which convert to
+   DAP MUST choose an appropriate form.  Servers MUST NOT reject values
+   merely because they contain legal Unicode characters outside of the

+8.2. Matching Rules used in Inequality Filters
+
+   Servers SHOULD be capable of performing the following matching rules,
+   which are used in greaterOrEqual and lessOrEqual filters.
+
+    ( 2.5.13.28 NAME 'generalizedTimeOrderingMatch'
+      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.24 )
+
+    ( 2.5.13.3 NAME 'caseIgnoreOrderingMatch'
+      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 )
+
+   The sort ordering for a caseIgnoreOrderingMatch is implementation-
+   dependent.
+
+8.3. Syntax and Matching Rules used in Substring Filters
+
+   The Substring Assertion syntax is used only as the syntax of
+   assertion values in the extensible match.  It is not used as the
+   syntax of attributes, or in the substring filter.
+
+   ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.58 DESC 'Substring Assertion' )
+
+   The Substring Assertion is encoded according to the following BNF:
+
+      substring = [initial] any [final]
+      initial = value
+      any = "*" *(value "*")
+      final = value
+
+   The <value> production is UTF-8 encoded string.  Should the backslash
+   or asterix characters be present in a production of <value>, they are
+   quoted as described in section 4.3.
+
+   Servers SHOULD be capable of performing the following matching rules,
+   which are used in substring filters.
+
+   ( 2.5.13.4 NAME 'caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch'
+    SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.58 )
+
+   ( 2.5.13.21 NAME 'telephoneNumberSubstringsMatch'
+    SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.58 )
+
+   ( 2.5.13.10 NAME 'numericStringSubstringsMatch'

+
+
+8.4. Matching Rules for Subschema Attributes
+
+   Servers which allow subschema entries to be modified by clients MUST
+   support the following matching rules, as they are the equality
+   matching rules for several of the subschema attributes.
+
+   ( 2.5.13.29 NAME 'integerFirstComponentMatch'
+     SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.27 )
+
+   ( 2.5.13.30 NAME 'objectIdentifierFirstComponentMatch'
+     SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.38 )
+
+   Implementors should note that the assertion syntax of these matching
+   rules, an INTEGER or OID, is different from the value syntax of
+   attributes for which this is the equality matching rule.
+
+   If the client supplies an extensible filter using an
+   objectIdentifierFirstComponentMatch whose matchValue is in the
+   "descr" form, and the OID is not recognized by the server, then the
+   filter is Undefined.
+
+9. Security Considerations
+
+9.1. Disclosure
+
+   Attributes of directory entries are used to provide descriptive
+   information about the real-world objects they represent, which can be
+   people, organizations or devices.  Most countries have privacy laws
+   regarding the publication of information about people.
+
+9.2. Use of Attribute Values in Security Applications
+
+   The transformations of an AttributeValue value from its X.501 form to
+   an LDAP string representation are not always reversible back to the
+   same BER or DER form.  An example of a situation which requires the
+   DER form of a distinguished name is the verification of an X.509
+   certificate.
+
+   For example, a distinguished name consisting of one RDN with one AVA,
+   in which the type is commonName and the value is of the TeletexString
+   choice with the letters 'Sam' would be represented in LDAP as the
+   string CN=Sam.  Another distinguished name in which the value is
+   still 'Sam' but of the PrintableString choice would have the same
+   representation CN=Sam.
+
+   Applications which require the reconstruction of the DER form of the
+   value SHOULD NOT use the string representation of attribute syntaxes
+   when converting a value to LDAP format.  Instead it SHOULD use the
