             Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
               Schema Definitions for X.509 Certificates

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.

   Abstract

   This document describes schema for representing X.509 certificates,
   X.521 security information, and related elements in directories
   accessible using the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).
   The LDAP definitions for these X.509 and X.521 schema elements
   replace those provided in RFCs 2252 and 2256.

1.  Introduction

   This document provides LDAP [RFC4510] schema definitions [RFC4512]
   for a subset of elements specified in X.509 [X.509] and X.521
   [X.521], including attribute types for certificates, cross
   certificate pairs, and certificate revocation lists; matching rules
   to be used with these attribute types; and related object classes.
   LDAP syntax definitions are also provided for associated assertion
   and attribute values.

   As the semantics of these elements are as defined in X.509 and X.521,
   knowledge of X.509 and X.521 is necessary to make use of the LDAP
   schema definitions provided herein.

   This document, together with [RFC4510], obsoletes RFCs 2252 and 2256
   in their entirety.  The changes (in this document) made since RFC
   2252 and RFC 2256 include:

      -  addition of pkiUser, pkiCA, and deltaCRL classes;

RFC 4523                   LDAP X.509 Schema                   June 2006


      -  update of attribute types to include equality matching rules in
         accordance with their X.500 specifications;

      -  addition of certificate, certificate pair, certificate list,
         and algorithm identifier matching rules; and

      -  addition of LDAP syntax for assertion syntaxes for these
         matching rules.

   This document obsoletes RFC 2587.  The X.509 schema descriptions for
   LDAPv2 [RFC1777] are Historic, as is LDAPv2 [RFC3494].

   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].

   Schema definitions are provided using LDAP description formats
   [RFC4512].  Definitions provided here are formatted (line wrapped)
   for readability.

2.  Syntaxes

   This section describes various syntaxes used in LDAP to transfer
   certificates and related data types.

2.1.  Certificate

      ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.8 DESC 'X.509 Certificate' )

   A value of this syntax is an X.509 Certificate [X.509, clause 7].

   Due to changes made to the definition of a Certificate through time,
   no LDAP-specific encoding is defined for this syntax.  Values of this
   syntax SHOULD be encoded using Distinguished Encoding Rules (DER)
   [X.690] and MUST only be transferred using the ;binary transfer
   option [RFC4522]; that is, by requesting and returning values using
   attribute descriptions such as "userCertificate;binary".

   As values of this syntax contain digitally signed data, values of
   this syntax and the form of each value MUST be preserved as
   presented.

2.2.  CertificateList

      ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.9 DESC 'X.509 Certificate List' )

   A value of this syntax is an X.509 CertificateList [X.509, clause
   7.3].

RFC 4523                   LDAP X.509 Schema                   June 2006


   Due to changes made to the definition of a CertificateList through
   time, no LDAP-specific encoding is defined for this syntax.  Values
   of this syntax SHOULD be encoded using DER [X.690] and MUST only be
   transferred using the ;binary transfer option [RFC4522]; that is, by
   requesting and returning values using attribute descriptions such as
   "certificateRevocationList;binary".

   As values of this syntax contain digitally signed data, values of
   this syntax and the form of each value MUST be preserved as
   presented.

2.3.  CertificatePair

      ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.10 DESC 'X.509 Certificate Pair' )

   A value of this syntax is an X.509 CertificatePair [X.509, clause
   11.2.3].

   Due to changes made to the definition of an X.509 CertificatePair
   through time, no LDAP-specific encoding is defined for this syntax.
   Values of this syntax SHOULD be encoded using DER [X.690] and MUST
   only be transferred using the ;binary transfer option [RFC4522]; that
   is, by requesting and returning values using attribute descriptions
   such as "crossCertificatePair;binary".

   As values of this syntax contain digitally signed data, values of
   this syntax and the form of each value MUST be preserved as
   presented.

2.4.  SupportedAlgorithm

      ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.49
           DESC 'X.509 Supported Algorithm' )

   A value of this syntax is an X.509 SupportedAlgorithm [X.509, clause
   11.2.7].

   Due to changes made to the definition of an X.509 SupportedAlgorithm
   through time, no LDAP-specific encoding is defined for this syntax.
   Values of this syntax SHOULD be encoded using DER [X.690] and MUST
   only be transferred using the ;binary transfer option [RFC4522]; that
   is, by requesting and returning values using attribute descriptions
   such as "supportedAlgorithms;binary".

   As values of this syntax contain digitally signed data, values of
   this syntax and the form of the value MUST be preserved as presented.

6.  Security Considerations

   General certificate considerations [RFC3280] apply to LDAP-aware
   certificate applications.  General LDAP security considerations
   [RFC4510] apply as well.

   While elements of certificate information are commonly signed, these
   signatures only protect the integrity of the signed information.  In
   the absence of data integrity protections in LDAP (or lower layer,
   e.g., IPsec), a server is not assured that client certificate request
   (or other request) was unaltered in transit.  Likewise, a client
   cannot be assured that the results of the query were unaltered in

   transit.  Hence, it is generally recommended that implementations
   make use of authentication and data integrity services in LDAP
   [RFC4513][RFC4511].

7.  IANA Considerations

7.1.  Object Identifier Registration

   The IANA has registered an LDAP Object Identifier [RFC4520] for use
   in this technical specification.

   This document is based on X.509, a product of the ITU-T.  A number of
   LDAP schema definitions were based on those found in RFCs 2252 and
   2256, both products of the IETF ASID WG.  The ABNF productions in
   Appendix A were provided by Steven Legg.  Additional material was
   borrowed from prior works by David Chadwick and Steven Legg to refine
   the LDAP X.509 schema.
