2.  Abstract

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.

INTERNET-DRAFT    The LDAP inetOrgPerson Object Class      22 April 1999


4.  Background and Intended Usage

The inetOrgPerson object class is a general purpose object class that
holds attributes about people.  The attributes it holds were chosen to
accommodate information requirements found in typical Internet and
Intranet directory service deployments.  The inetOrgPerson object class
is designed to be used within directory services based on the LDAP
[RFC2251] and the X.500 family of protocols, and it should be useful in
other contexts as well.  There is no requirement for directory services
implementors to use the inetOrgPerson object class; it is simply
presented as well-documented class that implementors can choose to use
if they find it useful.

The attribute type and object class definitions in this document are
written using the BNF form of AttributeTypeDescription and
ObjectClassDescription given in [RFC2252].  In some cases lines have
been folded for readability.

Attributes that are referenced but not defined in this document are
included in one of the following documents:

   The COSINE and Internet X.500 Schema [RFC1274]

   Definition of an X.500 Attribute Type and an Object Class to Hold
   Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) [RFC2079]

   A Summary of the X.500(96) User Schema for use with LDAPv3 [RFC2256]

See Appendix A for a summary of the attribute types, associated syn-
taxes, and matching rules used in this document.


5.  New Attribute Types Used in the inetOrgPerson Object Class


5.1.  Vehicle license or registration plate.

This multivalued field is used to record the values of the license or
registration plate associated with an individual.

    ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.1 NAME 'carLicense'
      DESC 'vehicle license or registration plate'
      EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
      SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 )

INTERNET-DRAFT    The LDAP inetOrgPerson Object Class      22 April 1999


5.2.  Department number

Code for department to which a person belongs.  This can also be
strictly numeric (e.g., 1234) or alphanumeric (e.g., ABC/123).

    ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.2
      NAME 'departmentNumber'
      DESC 'identifies a department within an organization'
      EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
      SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 )


5.3.  Display Name

When displaying an entry, especially within a one-line summary list, it
is useful to be able to identify a name to be used.  Since other attri-
bute types such as 'cn' are multivalued, an additional attribute type is
needed.  Display name is defined for this purpose.

    ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.241
      NAME 'displayName'
      DESC 'preferred name of a person to be used when displaying entries'
      EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
      SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15
      SINGLE-VALUE )


5.4.  Employee Number

Numeric or alphanumeric identifier assigned to a person, typically based
on order of hire or association with an organization.  Single valued.

    ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.3
      NAME 'employeeNumber'
      DESC 'numerically identifies an employee within an organization'
      EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
      SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15
      SINGLE-VALUE )


5.5.  Employee Type

Used to identify the employer to employee relationship.  Typical values
used will be "Contractor", "Employee", "Intern", "Temp", "External", and
"Unknown" but any value may be used.



M. Smith                 Network Working Group                  [Page 4]

INTERNET-DRAFT    The LDAP inetOrgPerson Object Class      22 April 1999


    ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.4
      NAME 'employeeType'
      DESC 'type of employment for a person'
      EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
      SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 )


5.6.  JPEG Photograph

Used to store one or more images of a person using the JPEG File Inter-
change Format [JFIF].

    ( 0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.60
      NAME 'jpegPhoto'
      DESC 'a JPEG image'
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.28 )

Note that the jpegPhoto attribute type was defined for use in the Inter-
net X.500 pilots but no referencable definition for it could be located.


5.7.  Preferred Language

Used to indicate an individual's preferred written or spoken language.
This is useful for international correspondence or human-computer
interaction.  Values for this attribute type MUST conform to the defini-
tion of the Accept-Language header field defined in [RFC2068] with one
exception:  the sequence "Accept-Language" ":" should be omitted.  This
is a single valued attribute type.

    ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.39
      NAME 'preferredLanguage'
      DESC 'preferred written or spoken language for a person'
      EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch
      SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15
      SINGLE-VALUE )
)


5.8.  User S/MIME Certificate

An S/MIME [RFC1847] signed message with a zero-length body.  This attri-
bute is to be stored and requested in binary form, as
'userSMIMECertificate;binary'.  It contains the person's entire certifi-
cate chain and the signed attribute that describes their algorithm capa-
bilities, stored as binary data.  If available, this attribute is

INTERNET-DRAFT    The LDAP inetOrgPerson Object Class      22 April 1999


preferred over the userCertificate attribute for S/MIME applications.

    ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.40
      NAME 'userSMIMECertificate'
      DESC 'signed message used to support S/MIME'
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.5 )


5.9.  User PKCS #12

PKCS #12 [PKCS12] provides a format for exchange of personal identity
information.  When such information is stored in a directory service,
the userPKCS12 attribute should be used. This attribute is to be stored
and requested in binary form, as 'userPKCS12;binary'.  The attribute
values are PFX PDUs stored as binary data.

    ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.216
      NAME 'userPKCS12'
      DESC 'PKCS #12 PFX PDU for exchange of personal identity information'
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.5 )
)


6.  Definition of the inetOrgPerson Object Class

The inetOrgPerson represents people who are associated with an organiza-
tion in some way.  It is a structural class and is derived from the
organizationalPerson class which is defined in X.521 [X521].

( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.2.2
    NAME 'inetOrgPerson'
    SUP organizationalPerson
    STRUCTURAL
    MAY (
        audio $ businessCategory $ carLicense $ departmentNumber $
        displayName $ employeeNumber $ employeeType $ givenName $ homePhone $
        homePostalAddress $ initials $ jpegPhoto $ labeledURI $
        mail $ manager $ mobile $ o $ pager $
        photo $ roomNumber $ secretary $ uid $ userCertificate $
        x500uniqueIdentifier $ preferredLanguage $ userSMIMECertificate $
        userPKCS12
    )
)


For reference, we list the following additional attribute types that are
part of the inetOrgPerson object class.  These attribute types are
inherited from organizationalPerson (which in turn is derived from the

8.  Security Considerations

Attributes of directory entries are used to provide descriptive informa-
tion 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 are strongly discouraged where the
underlying transport service cannot guarantee confidentiality and may
result in disclosure of the password to unauthorized parties.


9.  Acknowledgments

The Netscape Directory Server team created the inetOrgPerson object
class based on experience and customer requirements.  Anil Bhavnani and
John Kristian in particular deserve credit for all of the early design
work.

Many members of the Internet community, in particular those in the IETF
ASID and LDAPEXT groups, also contributed to the design of this object
class.

13.3.3.  Additional matching rules from X.520

caseExactMatch

    ( 2.5.13.5 NAME 'caseExactMatch'
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 )

This rule determines whether a presented string exactly matches an
attribute value of syntax DirectoryString.  It is identical to caseIg-
noreMatch except that case is not ignored.  Multiple adjoining whi-
tespace characters are treated the same as an individual space, and
leading and trailing whitespace is ignored.


caseExactSubstringsMatch

    ( 2.5.13.7 NAME 'caseExactSubstringsMatch'
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 )

This rules determines whether the initial, any and final substring ele-
ments in a presented value are present in an attribute value of syntax
DirectoryString.  It is identical to caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch except
that case is not ignored.


caseIgnoreListSubstringsMatch

    ( 2.5.13.12 NAME 'caseIgnoreListSubstringsMatch'
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.41 )

This rule compares a presented substring with an attribute value which
is a sequence of DirectoryStrings, but where the case of letters is not
significant for comparison purposes.  A presented value matches a stored
value if and only if the presented value matches the string formed by
concatenating the strings of the stored value.  Matching is done accord-
ing to the caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch rule except that none of the ini-
tial, final, or any values of the presented value match a substring of
the concatenated string which spans more than one of the strings of the
stored value.


13.3.4.  Matching rules not defined in any referenced document

caseIgnoreIA5SubstringsMatch

    ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.109.114.3 NAME 'caseIgnoreIA5SubstringsMatch'
      SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.26 )

INTERNET-DRAFT    The LDAP inetOrgPerson Object Class      22 April 1999


This rules determines whether the initial, any and final substring ele-
ments in a presented value are present in an attribute value of syntax
IA5 String without regard to the case of the letters in the strings.  It
is expected that this matching rule will be added to an update of RFC
2252.


14.  Appendix B - Change History

Changes since draft-smith-ldap-inetorgperson-02.txt:

   Added the 'o' (organization) attribute as an optional attribute type.

   Changed the displayName attribute type from multi-valued to single-
   valued.

   Changed the syntax of the userPKCS12 and userSMIMECertificate attri-
   bute types from Octet String to Binary.

   Added syntaxes and matching rules to Appendix A.

   Replaced "SUBSTRINGS" with "SUBSTR" in attribute type definitions in
   order to comply with the syntax defined in RFC 2252.

   Updated the example to remove spaces from the DN, to show sample use
   of the o, ou, and displayName types and to replace the domain names
   in the mail and labeledURI sample values with a legally cleaner
   value.

   Updated the X.500 references in the bibliography from 1993 to 1996;
   removed reference to X.500.

   Improved the formatting of the document slightly by adding vertical
   white space and my moving the table of contents close to the begin-
   ning.


            This Internet Draft expires on 22 October 1999.
