Net::LDAP::RFC - List of related RFC's
The LDAP protocol is defined in the following RFC's
The protocol described in this document is designed to provide access to directories supporting the X.500 models, while not incurring the resource requirements of the X.500 Directory Access Protocol (DAP). This protocol is specifically targeted at management applications and browser applications that provide read/write interactive access to directories. When used with a directory supporting the X.500 protocols, it is intended to be a complement to the X.500 DAP.
The LDAP 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.
The X.500 Directory uses distinguished names as the primary keys to entries in the directory. Distinguished Names are encoded in ASN.1 in the X.500 Directory protocols. In the LDAP, a string representation of distinguished names is transferred. This specification defines the string format for representing names, which is designed to give a clean representation of commonly used distinguished names, while being able to represent any distinguished name.
The LDAP defines a network representation of a search filter transmitted to an LDAP server. Some applications may find it useful to have a common way of representing these search filters in a human-readable form. This document defines a human-readable string format for representing LDAP search filters. This document replaces RFC 1960, extending the string LDAP filter definition to include support for LDAPv3 extended match filters.
This document describes a format for an LDAP Uniform Resource Locator, and describes an LDAP search operation performed to retrieve information from an LDAP directory. It updates the LDAP URL format for LDAPv3. This document also defines a second URL scheme prefix for LDAP running over the TLS protocol.
This document provides an overview of the attribute types and object classes defined by the ISO and ITU-T committees in the X.500 documents, in particular those intended for use by directory clients. This is the most widely used schema for LDAP/X.500 directories, and many other schema definitions for white pages objects use it as a basis. This document does not cover attributes used for the administration of X.500 directory servers, nor does it include attributes defined by other ISO/ITU-T documents.
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.
RFC-2079 Definition of an X.500 Attribute Type and an Object Class to Hold Uniform Resource Identifiers
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The schema defined in this document is a minimal schema to support PKIX in an LDAPv2 environment, as defined in RFC 2559. Only PKIX-specific components are specified here. LDAP servers, acting as PKIX repositories should support the auxiliary object classes defined in this specification and integrate this schema specification with the generic and other application-specific schemas as appropriate, depending on the services to be supplied by that server.
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.
LDAP provides a means for clients to interrogate and modify information stored in a distributed directory system. The information in the directory is maintained as attributes of entries. Most of these attributes have syntaxes which are human-readable strings, and it is desirable to be able to indicate the natural language associated with attribute values. This document describes how language codes are carried in LDAP and are to be interpreted by LDAP servers. All implementations MUST be prepared to accept language codes in the LDAP protocols. Servers may or may not be capable of storing attributes with language codes in the directory.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
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.
This document specifies particular combinations of SASL mechanisms and extensions which are required and recommended in LDAP implementations.
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.
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.
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.
LDAPv3 allows for the extension of the protocol through the use of controls. These controls allow existing operations to be enhanced to provide additional functionality for directory operations. Complex controls are being established that are bringing up error conditions not anticipated in the LDAPv3 specifications. The purpose of this draft is to create new result codes specific to LDAP controls and to define guidelines for the use of these result codes.
This document defines an LDAPv3 control that deletes an entire subtree of a container entry. This control extends the scope of the LDAPv3 delete operation as defined in RFC 2251. This control is beneficial in extending the functionality of the LDAP protocol and may be useful in administration in an LDAP environment.
Password policy is a set of rules that controls how passwords are used in LDAP directories. In order to improve the security of LDAP directories and make it difficult for password cracking programs to break into directories, it is desirable to enforce a set of rules on password usage. These rules are made to ensure that users change their passwords periodically, passwords meet construction requirements, the re-use of old password is restricted, and users are locked out after a certain number of failed attempts.
The strength of the TISDAG 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.
In order to support more flexible replication methods, it is desirable to specify some manner in which an LDAP client may retrieve a set of changes which have been applied to an LDAP server's database. The client, which may be another LDAP server, may then choose to update its own replicated copy of the data. This document specifies an object class which may be used to represent changes applied to an LDAP server. It also specifies a method for discovering the location of the container object which holds these change records, so that clients and servers have a common rendezvous point for this information.
This draft defines several new LDAP extensions, which are operations that can manipulate an entire portion of Directory Information Tree (DIT) at once. This draft does not presume any specific DIT structure or schema modifications.
LDAPv3 provides a base set of services. Additionally, LDAP provides several mechanisms by which the base set of services may be enhanced to provide additional services. This document describes the different ways that LDAP may be enhanced, and how developers can decide which enhancement mechanism is best suited for their environment. It also discusses the positives and negatives for each LDAP enhancement mechanism
draft-haripriya-ldapext-entryselect -- EntrySelection Control for LDAP Modify and Delete Operations on Multiple Entries
This document defines an LDAPv3 control that can select multiple entries in a subtree of a container entry for modification or deletion. This control extends the scope of the LDAPv3 modify and delete operations as defined in [RFC 2251]. This control is useful for modifying or deleting multiple entries on the basis of a single selection criterion. This may be useful for maintenance of an LDAP directory having a large number of objects.
The specification for LDAPv3 nominally comprises eight separte RFCs which were issued in two distinct subsets at separate times (RFCs 2251..2256 first, then RFCs 2229 and 2830 following later), but this has never been formally stated. Additionally, RFCs 2251 .. 2256 each are embellished with an "IESG Note" warning implementors and deployers of potential interoperability problems due to the lack of a specification of mandatory-to-implement authentication mechanism(s). This document corrects both situations by explicitly specifying the set of RFCs comprising LDAPv3 and rescinding the "IESG Note" due to the specification of mandatory-to-implement authentication mechanisms in RFC 2829.
This document makes the following recommendations for organizations on the Internet:
This document describes the access control list (ACL) model for an LDAP directory service. It includes a description of the model, the LDAP controls, and the extended operations to the LDAP protocol. A separate document defines the corresponding APIs.
This memo describes modifications to LDAPv3 to allow transport of a subset of the LDAP protocol over connection-less transport. The case of UDP/IP is covered in detail in this memo but other transport layers are possible.
This document defines a C language application program interface to LDAP, and replaces the previous definition of this API, defined in RFC 1823, updating it to include support for features found in LDAPv3, as well as other changes to support information hiding and thread safety.
This document defines a java language application program interface to the LDAP, in the form of a class library. It complements but does not replace the C language API. This version adds support for SASL authentication.
draft-ietf-ldapext-ldap-java-api-asynch-ext -- The Java LDAP Application Program Interface Asynchronous Extension
This document defines asynchronous extensions to the java language application program interface to LDAP defined in draft-ietf-ldapext-ldap-java-api (v7)
There are several different methods for a LDAP client to find a LDAP server. This draft discusses these methods and provides pointers for interested parties to learn more about implementing a particular method.
draft-ietf-ldapext-ldapv3-dupent -- LDAP Control for a Duplicate Entry Representation of Search Results
This document describes a Duplicate Entry Representation control extension for the LDAP Search operation. By using the control with an LDAP search, a client requests that the server return separate entries for each value held in the specified attributes. For instance, if a specified attribute of an entry holds multiple values, the search operation will return multiple instances of that entry, each instance holding a separate single value in that attribute.
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.
An LDAP request must be directed to an appropriate server for processing. This document specifies a method for discovering such servers using information in the Domain Name System.
This document describes a control for the LDAPv3 that is used to return a subset of attribute values from an entry, specifically, only those values that contributed to the search filter evaluating to TRUE. Without support for this control, a client must retrieve all of an attribute's values and search for specific values locally.
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.
This document defines two reference attributes and associated "referral" object class for representing generic knowledge information in LDAP directories. The attribute uses URIs to represent knowledge, enabling LDAP and non-LDAP services alike to be referenced. The object class can be used to construct entries in an LDAP directory containing references to other directories or services. This document also defines procedures directory servers should follow when supporting these schema elements and when responding to requests for which the directory server does not contain the requested object but may contain some knowledge of the location of the requested object.
This document defines a SASL [RFC 2222] authentication mechanism based on X.509 strong authentication, providing two way authentication. This mechanism is only for authentication, and has no effect on the protocol encodings and is not designed to provide integrity or confidentiality services.
Certain types of LDAP applications can benefit from the ability to specify the beginning and end of a related group of operations. For example, the LDUP multimaster update protocol requires that two servers agree to begin a session to transfer pending replication updates. This document provides a framework for constructing protocols that feature a framed set of related operations. It defines a pair of LDAPv3 extended operations that provide begin-end framing, and a pair of extended operations used to respond the begin-end framing operations. The nature of the actual LDAP operations carried inside these framing operations is not specified in this document.
draft-merrells-ldup-model (v1) describes the architectural approach to replication of LDAP directory contents. This document describes the information model and schema elements which support LDAP Replication Services
This architectural document outlines a suite of schema and protocol extensions to LDAPv3 that enables the robust, reliable, server-to-server exchange of directory content and changes.
The protocol described in this document is designed to allow one LDAP server to replicate its directory content to another LDAP server. The protocol is designed to be used in a replication configuration where multiple updatable servers are present. Provisions are made in the protocol to carry information that allows the server receiving updates to apply a total ordering to all updates in the replicated system. This total ordering allows all replicas to correctly resolve conflicts that arise when LDAP clients submit changes to different servers that later replicate to one another.
This document discusses the fundamental requirements for replication of data accessible via the LDAPv3 protocol. It is intended to be a gathering place for general replication requirements needed to provide interoperability between informational directories.
This document describes an object class called ldapSubEntry which MAY be used to indicate operations and management related entries in the directory, called LDAP Subentries. This version of this document is updated with an assigned OID for the ldapSubEntry object class.
This document describes the procedures used by directory servers to reconcile updates performed by autonomously operating directory servers in a distributed, replicated directory service.
draft-ietf-pkix-ldap-schema -- Internet X.509 Public Key Infrastructure Additional LDAP Schema for PKIs and PMIs
This document describes LDAP schema features in addition to RFC 2587 that are needed to support a Privilege Management Infrastructure and a Public Key Infrastructure. RFC2587 describes some of the subschema applicable to LDAPv2 servers, specifically the public key certificate related attribute types and object classes that MUST or MAY be supported. This document does not revoke any of the contents of RFC2587, but supplements them. RFC2587 is equally applicable to LDAPv3 servers as to LDAPv2 servers and MUST be supported by LDAPv3 servers. Neither RFC2587 nor the user schema for LDAPv3 (RFC2256) nor the attribute syntax definitions for LDAPv3 (RFC2252) describe in detail the matching rules that should be supported by LDAP servers, nor do they describe how attribute value assertions for each matching rule should be encoded in filter items. Finally none of these documents mention attributeCertificates or any schema to support privilege management, since these concepts superseded the publishing of the RFCs.
The purpose of this document is to describe, in some detail, the meaning and use of the result codes used with the LDAPv3 protocol. Of particular importance are the error codes, which represent the majority of the result codes. This document provides definitions for each result code, and outlines the expected behaviour of the various operations with respect to how result codes and in particular, error conditions should be handled and which specific error code should be returned. It is hoped that this document will facilitate interoperability between clients and servers and the development of intelligent LDAP clients capable of acting upon the results received from the server.
This document specifies two LDAP attributes, vendorName and vendorVersion that MAY be included in the root DSE to advertise vendor-specific information. These two attributes supplement the attributes defined in section 3.4 of RFC 2251. The information held in these attributes MAY be used for display and informational purposes and MUST NOT be used for feature advertisement or discovery.
This draft presents a LDAPv3 schema for the DMTF CIM Application model. Associations are mapped using a combination of auxiliary classes and DIT structure rules. Where auxiliary classes are used, name form and DIT content rules are specified. (This document is not a product of the DMTF, and represents the view of the authors.)
This draft presents a LDAPv3 schema for the DMTF CIM Core model. Associations are mapped using a combination of auxiliary classes and DIT structure rules. All attribute, object class, and name form OIDs are place holders, and syntax OIDs in definitions have been replaced by names for clarity. Further, structure rule identifiers are place holders and should be replaced as dictated by local implementations. (This document is a product of the DMTF LDAP WG.)
This draft presents a LDAPv3 schema for the DMTF CIM Device model. It builds on the core model presented in draft-moats-dmtf-core-ldap (v1). Associations are mapped using a combination of auxiliary classes and DIT structure rules. Where auxiliary classes are used, name form and DIT content rules are specified. (This document is not a product of the DMTF, and represents the view of the authors.)
This draft presents a LDAPv3 schema for the DMTF CIM Network model. Associations are mapped using a combination of auxiliary classes and DIT structure rules. Where auxiliary classes are used, name form and DIT content rules are specified. (This document is not a product of the DMTF, and represents the view of the authors.)
This draft presents a LDAPv3 schema for the DMTF CIM Physical model. Associations are mapped using a combination of auxiliary classes and DIT structure rules. Where auxiliary classes are used, name form and DIT content rules are specified. (This document is not a product of the DMTF, and represents the view of the authors.)
This draft presents a LDAPv3 schema for the DMTF CIM System model. It builds on the core model presented in draft-moats-dmtf-core-ldap (v1). Associations are mapped using a combination of auxiliary classes and DIT structure rules. Where auxiliary classes are used, name form and DIT content rules are specified. (This document is not a product of the DMTF, and represents the view of the authors.)
This document defines a LDAPv3 extensible matching rule that allows a server to dereference pointers stored in an object's attribute and apply a LDAPv3 search filter to the resulting objects. This rule allows schema definitions to capture richer association models without requiring extra protocol exchanges or special client code.
Seeking entries from a directory is a process involving network resources. It is assumed that a directory is accessed for reading and searching data more than for modification purposes. Under such assumptions, for performance reasons, a mechanism for caching as a proxy which caches all entries is desirable. This document describes a mechanism for caching directory entries. This document also defines one operational attribute and two controls required to be implemented for the caching model.
This document defines the 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.
The LDAP Bulk Update/Replication Protocol (LBURP) described in this document allows an LDAP client (a genuine client or an LDAP server acting as a client) to perform a bulk update to a replica on an LDAP server. The protocol groups a set of update operations using the LDAP framed protocol requests defined in [FRAMING] to notify the client that the update operations in the framed set are related. The update operations within the framed set are LDAPv3 extended operations each encapsulating a sequence number and one or more LDAPv3 update operations. The sequence number allows the server to process the update operations in the proper order even when they are sent asynchronously by the client, and the update operations can be grouped within the extended request to maximize the efficiency of client-server communication.
This document describes the ExtendedPartialResponse, an element of LDAP v3 protocol which allows multiple responses to LDAPv3 extended requests. Extended partial responses are backward compatible with the existing LDAPv3 Extended Operation defined in LDAPv3..
In many environments the final step of certificate issuance is publishing the certificate to a repository. Unfortunately, there is no way for a Certification Authority (CA) to have a secure application-level acknowledgement that the proper repository did, in fact, receive the certificate. This issue is of greater concern when considering the publication of Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs) -- if an adversary manages to interpose itself between the CA and its intended repository, then clients could end up relying on outdated revocation lists.
This document defines an extension to the C LDAP API to support reporting of specific errors for functions in the API that do not provide a way to access detailed information about failures. Three new functions are defined: ldap_get_lderrno(), ldap_set_lderrno(), and ldap_dup_string().
This document defines a virtual list view extension for the LDAP C API to support the LDAP protocol extensions for scrolling view browsing of search results. More specifically, this document defines functions to create virtual list view request controls and to parse virtual list view response controls.
LDAP defines a network representation of a search filter transmitted to an LDAP server. Some applications may find it useful to have a common way of representing these search filters in a human-readable form. This document defines a human-readable string format for representing the full range of possible LDAPv3 search filters, including extended match filters.
LDAP is defined in RFCs 2251-3. This document describes a format for an LDAP Uniform
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.
HTTP Digest Authentication as a SASL mechanism is required to be supported in LDAP servers for password-based authentication (see Authentication Methods for LDAP). This specification describes one approach to implement DIGEST-MD5 authentication in an LDAP server. It does not specify a standard of any kind.
This document defines a client-side and a server-side Java language interface for using the Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL) mechanisms for adding authentication support to connection-based protocols. The interface promotes sharing of SASL mechanism drivers and security layers between applications using different protocols. It complements but does not replace [SASL], which defines and exemplifies use of the SASL protocol in a language-independent way.
This document defines support for the Preferred Language Control, the Server Sorting Control, and the Virtual List Control in the Java LDAP API. Controls are an LDAPv3 extension, to allow passing arbitrary control information along with a standard request to a server, and to receive arbitrary information back with a standard result.
This document defines support for the Authentication Response Control. Controls are an LDAPv3 extension, to allow passing arbitrary control information along with a standard request to a server, and to receive arbitrary information back with a standard result. The Authentication Response Control may be returned by an LDAP server in a bind response to a client authenticating with LDAPv3. The control contains the identity assumed by the client. This is useful when there is a mapping step or other indirection during the bind, so that the client can be told what LDAP identity was granted. Client authentication with certificates is the primary situation where this applies. Also, some SASL authentication mechanisms may not involve the client explicitly providing a DN.
This document defines support for the Proxied Authorization Control. Controls are an LDAPv3 extension, to allow passing arbitrary control information along with a standard request to a server, and to receive arbitrary information back with a standard result. The Proxied Authorization Control allows a connection with sufficient privileges to assume the identity of another entry for the duration of an LDAP request.
This document describes schema for storing authentication passwords in an LDAP directory. The document provides schema definitions for authPassword and related schema definitions. The authPassword is intended to used instead of clear text password storage mechanisms such as userPassword [RFC2256] to support simple bind operations. The attribute may be used to store SASL authentication passwords in entries of a directory.
This document defines extensions to the LDAP C API to support use in concurrent execution environments. The document describes and defines requirements for multiple concurrency levels: thread safe, session thread safe, and operation thread safe.
This document defines a mandatory extension to the LDAP C API to provide error reporting for all API calls. The mechanism is non-intrusive and can, optionally, support concurrent execution environments.
This document provides a general mechanisms for grouping related LDAP operations, which may be used to support replication, proxies, and higher level operations such as transactions. This document describes a set of LDAP extended operations and other protocol and schema elements to support grouping of related operations.
This document defines schema and protocol elements for representing and manipulating generic knowledge information in LDAP directories. An attribute type "ref" is used to store URIs which may refer to LDAP and non-LDAP services. An object class "referral" is used to construct entries in an LDAP directory which references to other directories or services. A control, ManageDsaIT, is defined to allow clients to manipulate referral objects as normal entries. The document describes procedures directory servers should follow when supporting these elements.
The integration of LDAP and external authentication services has introducted non-DN authentication identities and allowed for non-directory storage of passwords. As such, mechanisms which update the directory, such as Modify operation, 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.
LDAP update operations have atomic properties upon individual entries. However, it is often desirable to update two or more entries as one atomic action, a transaction. Transactions are necessary to support a number of applications including resource provisioning and information replication. This document defines an LDAP extension to support transactions.
X.500 provides a mechanism for clients to request all operational attributes be returned with entries provided in response to a search operation. LDAP [RFC2251] does not provide a similar mechanism to clients to request the return of operational attributes. The lack of such a mechanisms hinders discovery of operational attributes present in an entry.
