1.  Introduction

   The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) [Roadmap] 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; LDAP URLs
   are an example of one such application.  This document defines a
   human-readable string format for representing the full range of
   possible LDAP version 3 search filters, including extended match
   filters.

   This document is a integral part of the LDAP technical specification
   [Roadmap] which obsoletes the previously defined LDAP technical
   specification, RFC 3377, in its entirety.

   This document replaces RFC 2254.  Changes to RFC 2254 are summarized
   in Appendix A.

   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 BCP 14 [RFC2119].

2.  LDAP Search Filter Definition

   An LDAP search filter is defined in Section 4.5.1 of [Protocol] as
   follows:

        Filter ::= CHOICE {
            and                [0] SET SIZE (1..MAX) OF filter Filter,
            or                 [1] SET SIZE (1..MAX) OF filter Filter,
            not                [2] Filter,
            equalityMatch      [3] AttributeValueAssertion,
            substrings         [4] SubstringFilter,
            greaterOrEqual     [5] AttributeValueAssertion,
            lessOrEqual        [6] AttributeValueAssertion,
            present            [7] AttributeDescription,
            approxMatch        [8] AttributeValueAssertion,
            extensibleMatch    [9] MatchingRuleAssertion }

        SubstringFilter ::= SEQUENCE {
            type    AttributeDescription,
            -- initial and final can occur at most once
            substrings    SEQUENCE SIZE (1..MAX) OF substring CHOICE {
             initial        [0] AssertionValue,
             any            [1] AssertionValue,
             final          [2] AssertionValue } }

        AttributeValueAssertion ::= SEQUENCE {
            attributeDesc   AttributeDescription,
            assertionValue  AssertionValue }

        MatchingRuleAssertion ::= SEQUENCE {
            matchingRule    [1] MatchingRuleId OPTIONAL,
            type            [2] AttributeDescription OPTIONAL,
            matchValue      [3] AssertionValue,
            dnAttributes    [4] BOOLEAN DEFAULT FALSE }

        AttributeDescription ::= LDAPString
                        -- Constrained to <attributedescription>
                        -- [Models]

        AttributeValue ::= OCTET STRING




Smith & Howes      Intended Category: Standards Track           [Page 3]

INTERNET-DRAFT   LDAP: String Repres. of Search Filters 16 November 2004


        MatchingRuleId ::= LDAPString

        AssertionValue ::= OCTET STRING

        LDAPString ::= OCTET STRING -- UTF-8 encoded,
                                    -- [Unicode] characters

   The AttributeDescription, as defined in [Protocol], is a string
   representation of the attribute description that is discussed in
   [Models].  The AttributeValue and AssertionValue OCTET STRING have
   the form defined in [Syntaxes].  The Filter is encoded for
   transmission over a network using the Basic Encoding Rules (BER)
   defined in [X.690], with simplifications described in [Protocol].

3.  String Search Filter Definition

   The string representation of an LDAP search filter is a string of
   UTF-8 [RFC3629] encoded Unicode characters [Unicode] that is defined
   by the following grammar, following the ABNF notation defined in
   [RFC2234].  The productions used that are not defined here are
   defined in section 1.4 (Common ABNF Productions) of [Models] unless
   otherwise noted.  The filter format uses a prefix notation.

      filter         = LPAREN filtercomp RPAREN
      filtercomp     = and / or / not / item
      and            = AMPERSAND filterlist
      or             = VERTBAR filterlist
      not            = EXCLAMATION filter
      filterlist     = 1*filter
      item           = simple / present / substring / extensible
      simple         = attr filtertype assertionvalue
      filtertype     = equal / approx / greaterorequal / lessorequal
      equal          = EQUALS
      approx         = TILDE EQUALS
      greaterorequal = RANGLE EQUALS
      lessorequal    = LANGLE EQUALS
      extensible     = ( attr [dnattrs]
                           [matchingrule] COLON EQUALS assertionvalue )
                       / ( [dnattrs]
                            matchingrule COLON EQUALS assertionvalue )
      present        = attr EQUALS ASTERISK
      substring      = attr EQUALS [initial] any [final]
      initial        = assertionvalue
      any            = ASTERISK *(assertionvalue ASTERISK)
      final          = assertionvalue
      attr           = attributedescription
                         ; The attributedescription rule is defined in
                         ; Section 2.5 of [Models].



Smith & Howes      Intended Category: Standards Track           [Page 4]

INTERNET-DRAFT   LDAP: String Repres. of Search Filters 16 November 2004


      dnattrs        = COLON "dn"
      matchingrule   = COLON oid
      assertionvalue = valueencoding
      ; The <valueencoding> rule is used to encode an <AssertionValue>
      ; from Section 4.1.6 of [Protocol].
      valueencoding  = 0*(normal / escaped)
      normal         = UTF1SUBSET / UTFMB
      escaped        = ESC HEX HEX
      UTF1SUBSET     = %x01-27 / %x2B-5B / %x5D-7F
                          ; UTF1SUBSET excludes 0x00 (NUL), LPAREN,
                          ; RPAREN, ASTERISK, and ESC.
      EXCLAMATION    = %x21 ; exclamation mark ("!")
      AMPERSAND      = %x26 ; ampersand (or AND symbol) ("&")
      ASTERISK       = %x2A ; asterisk ("*")
      COLON          = %x3A ; colon (":")
      VERTBAR        = %x7C ; vertical bar (or pipe) ("|")
      TILDE          = %x7E ; tilde ("~")


   Note that although both the <substring> and <present> productions in
   the grammar above can produce the "attr=*" construct, this construct
   is used only to denote a presence filter.

   The <valueencoding> rule ensures that the entire filter string is a
   valid UTF-8 string and provides that the octets that represent the
   ASCII characters "*" (ASCII 0x2a), "(" (ASCII 0x28), ")" (ASCII
   0x29), "\" (ASCII 0x5c), and NUL (ASCII 0x00) are represented as a
   backslash "\" (ASCII 0x5c) followed by the two hexadecimal digits
   representing the value of the encoded octet.

   This simple escaping mechanism eliminates filter-parsing ambiguities
   and allows any filter that can be represented in LDAP to be
   represented as a NUL-terminated string. Other octets that are part of
   the <normal> set may be escaped using this mechanism, for example,
   non-printing ASCII characters.

   For AssertionValues that contain UTF-8 character data, each octet of
   the character to be escaped is replaced by a backslash and two hex
   digits, which form a single octet in the code of the character.  For
   example, the filter checking whether the "cn" attribute contained a
   value with the character "*" anywhere in it would be represented as
   "(cn=*\2a*)".

   As indicated by the <valueencoding> rule, implementations MUST escape
   all octets greater than 0x7F that are not part of a valid UTF-8
   encoding sequence when they generate a string representation of a
   search filter.  Implementations SHOULD accept as input strings that
   are not valid UTF-8 strings. This is necessary because RFC 2254 did



Smith & Howes      Intended Category: Standards Track           [Page 5]

INTERNET-DRAFT   LDAP: String Repres. of Search Filters 16 November 2004


   not clearly define the term "string representation" (and in
   particular did not mention that the string representation of an LDAP
   search filter is a string of UTF-8 encoded Unicode characters).

4.  Examples

   This section gives a few examples of search filters written using
   this notation.

        (cn=Babs Jensen)
        (!(cn=Tim Howes))
        (&(objectClass=Person)(|(sn=Jensen)(cn=Babs J*)))
        (o=univ*of*mich*)
        (seeAlso=)

   The following examples illustrate the use of extensible matching.

        (cn:caseExactMatch:=Fred Flintstone)
        (cn:=Betty Rubble)
        (sn:dn:2.4.6.8.10:=Barney Rubble)
        (o:dn:=Ace Industry)
        (:1.2.3:=Wilma Flintstone)
        (:DN:2.4.6.8.10:=Dino)

   The first example shows use of the matching rule "caseExactMatch."

   The second example demonstrates use of a MatchingRuleAssertion form
   without a matchingRule.

   The third example illustrates the use of the ":oid" notation to
   indicate that matching rule identified by the OID "2.4.6.8.10" should
   be used when making comparisons, and that the attributes of an
   entry's distinguished name should be considered part of the entry
   when evaluating the match (indicated by the use of ":dn").

   The fourth example denotes an equality match, except that DN
   components should be considered part of the entry when doing the
   match.

   The fifth example is a filter that should be applied to any attribute
   supporting the matching rule given (since the <attr> has been
   omitted).

   The sixth and final example is also a filter that should be applied
   to any attribute supporting the matching rule given.  Attributes
   supporting the matching rule contained in the DN should also be
   considered.




Smith & Howes      Intended Category: Standards Track           [Page 6]

INTERNET-DRAFT   LDAP: String Repres. of Search Filters 16 November 2004


   The following examples illustrate the use of the escaping mechanism.

        (o=Parens R Us \28for all your parenthetical needs\29)
        (cn=*\2A*)
        (filename=C:\5cMyFile)
        (bin=\00\00\00\04)
        (sn=Lu\c4\8di\c4\87)
        (1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.0=\04\02\48\69)

   The first example shows the use of the escaping mechanism to
   represent parenthesis characters. The second shows how to represent a
   "*" in an assertion value, preventing it from being interpreted as a
   substring indicator. The third illustrates the escaping of the
   backslash character.

   The fourth example shows a filter searching for the four octet value
   00 00 00 04 (hex), illustrating the use of the escaping mechanism to
   represent arbitrary data, including NUL characters.

   The fifth example illustrates the use of the escaping mechanism to
   represent various non-ASCII UTF-8 characters. Specifically, there are
   5 characters in the <assertionvalue> portion of this example: LATIN
   CAPITAL LETTER L (U+004C), LATIN SMALL LETTER U (U+0075), LATIN SMALL
   LETTER C WITH CARON (U+010D), LATIN SMALL LETTER I (U+0069), and
   LATIN SMALL LETTER C WITH ACUTE (U+0107).

   The sixth and final example demonstrates assertion of a BER encoded
   value.

5.  Security Considerations

   This memo describes a string representation of LDAP search filters.
   While the representation itself has no known security implications,
   LDAP search filters do. They are interpreted by LDAP servers to
   select entries from which data is retrieved.  LDAP servers should
   take care to protect the data they maintain from unauthorized access.

   Please refer to the Security Considerations sections of [Protocol]
   and [AuthMeth] for more information.

6.  IANA Considerations

   This document has no actions for IANA.

11.  Appendix A: Changes Since RFC 2254

11.1.  Technical Changes

   Replaced [ISO 10646] reference with [Unicode].

   The following technical changes were made to the contents of the
   "String Search Filter Definition" section:

   Added statement that the string representation is a string of UTF-8
   encoded Unicode characters.

   Revised all of the ABNF to use common productions from [Models].

   Replaced the "value" rule with a new "assertionvalue" rule within the
   "simple", "extensible", and "substring" ("initial", "any", and
   "final") rules.  This matches a change made in [Syntaxes].

   Added "(" and ")" around the components of the <extensible>
   subproductions for clarity.

   Revised the "attr", "matchingrule", and "assertionvalue" ABNF to more
   precisely reference productions from the [Models] and [Protocol]
   documents.

   "String Search Filter Definition" section: replaced "greater" and
   "less" with "greaterorequal" and "lessorequal" to avoid confusion.





Smith & Howes      Intended Category: Standards Track           [Page 9]

INTERNET-DRAFT   LDAP: String Repres. of Search Filters 16 November 2004


   Introduced the "valueencoding" and associated "normal" and "escaped"
   rules to reduce the dependence on descriptive text. The "normal"
   production restricts filter strings to valid UTF-8 sequences.

   Added a statement about expected behavior in light of RFC 2254's lack
   of a clear definition of "string representation."



11.2.  Editorial Changes

   Changed document title to include "LDAP:" prefix.

   IESG Note: removed note about lack of satisfactory mandatory
   authentication mechanisms.

   Header and "Authors' Addresses" sections: added Mark Smith as the
   document editor and updated affiliation and contact information.

   "Table of Contents", "IANA Considerations", and "Intellectual
   Property Rights" sections: added.

   Copyright: updated per latest IETF guidelines.

   "Abstract" section: separated from introductory material.

   "Introduction" section: new section; separated from the Abstract.
   Updated second paragraph to indicate that RFC 2254 is replaced by
   this document (instead of RFC 1960). Added reference to the [Roadmap]
   document.

   "LDAP Search Filter Definition" section: made corrections to the LDAP
   search filter ABNF so it matches that used in [Protocol].

   Clarified the definition of 'value' (now 'assertionvalue') to take
   into account the fact that it is not precisely an AttributeAssertion
   from [Protocol] section 4.1.6 (special handling is required for some
   characters).  Added a note that each octet of a character to be
   escaped is replaced by a backslash and two hex digits, which
   represent a single octet.

   "Examples" section: added four additional examples: (seeAlso=),
   (cn:=Betty Rubble), (:1.2.3:=Wilma Flintstone), and
   (1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.0=\04\02\48\69).  Replaced one occurrence of "a
   value" with "an assertion value".  Corrected the description of this
   example: (sn:dn:2.4.6.8.10:=Barney Rubble).  Replaced the numeric OID
   in the first extensible match example with "caseExactMatch" to
   demonstrate use of the descriptive form.  Used "DN" (uppercase) in



Smith & Howes      Intended Category: Standards Track          [Page 10]

INTERNET-DRAFT   LDAP: String Repres. of Search Filters 16 November 2004


   the last extensible match example to remind the reader to treat the
   <dnattrs> production as case insensitive.  Reworded the description
   of the fourth escaping mechanism example to avoid making assumptions
   about byte order.  Added text to the fifth escaping mechanism example
   to spell out what the non-ASCII characters are in Unicode terms.

   "Security Considerations" section: added references to [Protocol] and
   [AuthMeth].

   "Normative References" section: renamed from "References" per new RFC
   guidelines. Changed from [1] style to [Protocol] style throughout the
   document.  Added entries for [Unicode], [RFC2119], [AuthMeth],
   [Models], and [Roadmap] and updated the UTF-8 reference.  Replaced
   RFC 822 reference with a reference to RFC 2234.

   "Informative References" section: (new section) moved [X.690] to this
   section.  Added a reference to [LDAPURL].

   "Acknowledgments" section: added.

   "Appendix A: Changes Since RFC 2254" section: added.

   "Appendix B: Changes Since Previous Document Revision" section:
   added.

   Surrounded the names of all ABNF productions with "<" and ">" where
   they are used in descriptive text.

   Replaced all occurrences of "LDAPv3" with "LDAP."


12.  Appendix B: Changes Since Previous Document Revision

   This appendix lists all changes relative to the previously published
   revision, draft-ietf-ldapbis-filter-08.txt.  Note that when
   appropriate these changes are also included in Appendix A, but are
   also included here for the benefit of the people who have already
   reviewed draft-ietf-ldapbis-filter-08.txt.  This section will be
   removed before this document is published as an RFC.


12.1.  Technical Changes

   Removed the third option from the "extensible" production that
   allowed creation of a MatchingRuleAssertion that only had a
   matchValue (disallowed By [Protocol]).  Added "(" and ")" around the
   components of the <extensible> subproductions for clarity.

12.2.  Editorial Changes

   "Introduction" section: referenced [Roadmap] upon first use of LDAP
   and expanded the paragraph that begins "This document is an integral
   part of the LDAP technical specification..." to match the text used
   in [Protocol].

   "LDAP Search Filter Definition" section: reworded the last paragraph
   for clarity.

   "Examples" section: Replaced the numeric OID in the first extensible
   match example with "caseExactMatch" to demonstrate use of the
   descriptive form.  Used "DN" (uppercase) in the last extensible match
   example to remind the reader to treat the <dnattrs> production as
   case insensitive.  Reworded the description of the fourth escaping
   mechanism example to avoid making assumptions about byte order.
   Added text to the fifth escaping mechanism example to spell out what
   the non-ASCII characters are in Unicode terms.

   References: added [LDAPURL] and moved [X.690] to "Informative
   References."

   "Acknowledgements" section: added the sentence "RFC 2254 was a
   product of the IETF ASID Working Group."

   Changed these two sections to unnumbered ones: "Intellectual Property
   Rights" and "Full Copyright."

   Surrounded the names of all ABNF productions with "<" and ">" where
   they are used in descriptive text.

   Replaced all occurrences of "LDAPv3" with "LDAP."
