Abstract

   This document provides an overview of attribute types and object
   classes defined by the ISO/IEC JTC1 and ITU-T committees in the
   IS0/IEC 9594 and X.500 documents, in particular those intended for
   use by directory clients.  This is the most widely used schema for
   LDAP/X.500 directories.  It is used as a basis for many other white
   pages objects schema definitions.  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.

   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 [RFC2119].

1.  General Issues

   This document references Syntaxes given in Section 3 of [Syntaxes]
   and Matching Rules specified in Section 4 of [Syntaxes].

   The definitions of Attribute Types and Object Classes are written
   using the ABNF form of AttributeTypeDescription and
   ObjectClassDescription given in [Models].  Lines have been folded
   for readability.


2.  Source

   The schema definitions in this document are based on those found in
   the X.500-series [X.520] and [X.521] and RFC 2247 [RFC2247],
   specifically:

        Sections             Source
        ============         ==================
        3.1 - 3.3            X.520 [X.520]
        3.4                  RFC 2247 [RFC2247]
        3.5 - 3.42           X.520 [X.520]
        4.1  - 4.3           X.521 [X.521]
        4.4                  RFC 2247 [RFC2247]
        4.5 - 4.13           X.521 [X.521]


3. Attribute Types

   The Attribute Types contained in this section hold user information.

   There is no requirement that servers implement the following
   Attribute Types:

       searchGuide
       teletexTerminalIdentifier

   In fact, their use is greatly discouraged.

   An LDAP server implementation SHOULD recognize the rest of the
   Attribute Types described in this section.

3.1  businessCategory

   This Attribute Type describes the kind of business performed by
   an organization.

INTERNET-DRAFT     draft-ietf-ldapbis-user-schema-04    25 February 2003


   ( 2.5.4.15 NAME 'businessCategory'
      EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
      SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15{128} )

   The SYNTAX oid indicates the Directory String syntax.

3.2  c

   This is the X.520 [X.520] countryName Attribute Type, which contains
   a two-letter ISO 3166 [ISO3166]country code.

   ( 2.5.4.6 NAME 'c'
      SUP name
      SINGLE-VALUE )

3.3  cn

   This is the X.520 [X.520] commonName Attribute Type, which contains
   a name of an object.  If the object corresponds to a person, it is
   typically the person's full name.

   ( 2.5.4.3 NAME 'cn'
      SUP name )

3.4  dc

   The dc (short for domainComponent) attribute type is defined as
   follows:

   ( 0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.25 NAME 'dc'
      EQUALITY caseIgnoreIA5Match
      SUBSTR caseIgnoreIA5SubstringsMatch
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.26
      SINGLE-VALUE )

   The value of this attribute is a string holding one component of a
   DNS domain name.  The encoding of IA5String for use in LDAP is simply
   the characters of the string itself.  The equality matching rule is
   case insensitive, as is today's DNS.

3.5  description

   This Attribute Type contains a human-readable description of
   the object.

   ( 2.5.4.13 NAME 'description'
      EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
      SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15{1024} )

INTERNET-DRAFT     draft-ietf-ldapbis-user-schema-04    25 February 2003


   The SYNTAX oid indicates the Directory String syntax.

3.6  destinationIndicator

   This attribute is used for the telegram service.

   ( 2.5.4.27 NAME 'destinationIndicator'
      EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
      SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.44{128} )

   The SYNTAX oid indicates the Printable String syntax.

3.7  distinguishedName

   This Attribute Type is not used as the name of the object itself,
   but it is instead a base type from which attributes with DN syntax
   inherit.

   It is unlikely that values of this type itself will occur in an
   entry.  LDAP server implementations which do not support attribute
   subtyping need not recognize this attribute in requests.  Client
   implementations MUST NOT assume that LDAP servers are capable of
   performing attribute subtyping.

   ( 2.5.4.49 NAME 'distinguishedName'
      EQUALITY distinguishedNameMatch
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.12 )

   The SYNTAX oid indicates the DN syntax.

3.8  dnQualifier

   The dnQualifier Attribute Type specifies disambiguating information
   to add to the relative distinguished name of an entry.  It is
   intended for use when merging data from multiple sources in order to
   prevent conflicts between entries which would otherwise have the same
   name.  It is recommended that the value of the dnQualifier attribute
   be the same for all entries from a particular source.

   ( 2.5.4.46 NAME 'dnQualifier'
      EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
      ORDERING caseIgnoreOrderingMatch
      SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.44 )

   The SYNTAX oid indicates the Printable String syntax.

3.9  enhancedSearchGuide

   This attribute is for use by X.500 clients in constructing search
   filters.

   ( 2.5.4.47 NAME 'enhancedSearchGuide'
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.21 )

   The SYNTAX oid indicates the Enhanced Guide syntax.

3.10  facsimileTelephoneNumber

   A value of this Attribute Type is a telephone number for a facsimile
   terminal (and, optionally, its parameters).

   ( 2.5.4.23 NAME 'facsimileTelephoneNumber'
     SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.22 )

   The SYNTAX oid indicates the Facsimile Telephone Number syntax.

3.11  generationQualifier

   The generationQualifier Attribute Type contains the part of a
   person's name which typically is the suffix, as in "IIIrd".

   ( 2.5.4.44 NAME 'generationQualifier'
      SUP name )

3.12  givenName

   The givenName Attribute Type is used to hold the part of a person's
   name which is not their surname nor middle name.

   ( 2.5.4.42 NAME 'givenName'
      SUP name )

3.13  houseIdentifier

5.  Security Considerations

   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.

   Transfer of cleartext passwords is strongly discouraged where the
   underlying transport service cannot guarantee confidentiality and may
   result in disclosure of the password to unauthorized parties.

   It is required that strong authentication be performed in order to
   modify directory entries using LDAP.

   Several X.500 Attribute Types and Object Classes, such as, the
   userCertificate Attribute Type or the certificationAuthority Object
   Class, are used to include key-based security information in
   directory entries.  The Attribute Types are:

      authorityRevocationList
      cACertificate
      certificateRevocationList
      crossCertificatePair
      deltaRevocationList
      supportedAlgorithms
      userCertificate

   The Object Classes are:

      certificationAuthority
      certificationAuthority-V2
      cRLDistributionPoint
      strongAuthenticationUser
      userSecurityInformation

   These Attribute Types and Object Classes are specified for LDAP by
   the PKIX Working Group, and so, are not included in this document.

   It is recommended that the BNF notation in RFC 1778 [RFC1778] not
   be used for User Certificate, Authority Revocation List, and
   Certificate Pair.

                          Annex A  Change Log


   This annex lists the changes that have been made from RFC 2256 to
   this I-D.

   Changes to RFC 2256 resulting in
   draft-ietf-ldapbis-user-schema-00.txt:

      1.  Revision of the Status of this Memo.

      2.  Dependencies on RFC 1274 have been eliminated.

      3.  The references to X.500(96) have been expressed in terms of
          the "edition", rather than the standard date.  Note that the
          version of X.500 which is the basis for this document, is the
          third edition, which was finalized in 1996, but approved in
          1997.

      4.  The "teletexTerminalNumber" attribute and syntax are marked
          as obsolete.

      5.  Removed "The syntax definitions are based on the ISODE "QUIPU"
          implementation of X.500." from section 6.

      6.  Added text to 6.1, the octetString syntax, in accordance
          with X.520.

      7.  Some of the attribute types MUST be recognized by servers.
          Also, several attributes are obsolete.  Therefore, the
          various kinds of attribute types have been placed in separate
          sections:

            - necessary for the directory to operate (section 3.1)

            - for holding user information (section 3.2)

            - superseded or withdrawn (section 3.3).

      8.  Since "top" may be implicitly specified and  "alias" is not
          abstract, the last sentence in the description of the
          "objectClass" attribute type, section 3.1.1, has been deleted.
          The clause that preceded the deleted sentence has been
          removed, also.

      9.  Add a description to the definition of the "telephoneNumber"
          attribute type, section 3.2.17.

      10. Add text to mark the "teletexTerminalIdentifier" attribute
          type as obsolete.

INTERNET-DRAFT     draft-ietf-ldapbis-user-schema-04    25 February 2003


      11. Add a security consideration requiring strong authentication
          in order to modify directory entries.

   Changes to draft-ietf-ldapbis-user-schema-00.txt, resulting in draft-
   ietf-ldapbis-user-schema-01.txt:

      12. Delete the conformance requirement for subschema object
          classes in favor of a statement in [SYNTAX].

      13. Add a Table of Contents

      14. Replace the term "obsolete" with "superseded or withdrawn"

      15. Added explanations to many attributes.

      16. In the title, correct the X.500 reference to have the second
          edition as the basis.

      17. Throughout this I-D, cleaned up whitespace in the BNF
          definitions.

      18. Removed Section 4, Syntaxes, and Section 6, Matching Rules,
          (moved to draft-ietf-ldapbis-syntaxes-01.txt).

      19. Reorganized Section 3, Attributes, to eliminate grouping
          attributes according to conformance requirements.  Reordered
          Section 3, Attributes, and Section 4, Object Classes,
          alphabetically.

      20. Added an explanation for each object class.

   Changes to draft-ietf-ldapbis-user-schema-01.txt, resulting in draft-
   ietf-ldapbis-user-schema-02.txt:

      21. Removed the certificate-related Attribute Types:
             authorityRevocationList,
             cACertificate,
             certificateRevocationList,
             crossCertificatePair,
             deltaRevocationList,
             supportedAlgorithms, and
             userCertificate.

          Removed the certificate-related Object Classes:
             certificationAuthority,
             certificationAuthority-V2,
             cRLDistributionPoint,
             strongAuthenticationUser, and
             userSecurityInformation

          are covered in PKIX WG documents.

      22. Removed the dmdName Attribute Type and dmd Object Class
          because they are not in the version of X.500 which
          is referenced.

      23. Removed embedded comments from the ABNF productions
          throughout the document.

      24. Cleaned up the references;  adopted word instead of number
          tags;  split Section 7 into normative and informative
          subsections.
