A Revised Catalog of Available X.500 Implementations

Status of this Memo

This memo provides information for the Internet community. This memo

does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. Distribution of

this memo is unlimited.

Abstract

This document is the result of a survey that gathered new or updated

descriptions of currently available implementations of X.500,

including commercial products and openly available offerings. This

document is a revision of RFC 1292. We contacted each contributor in

RFC 1292 and requested an update and published the survey template in

several mailing lists and obtained new product descriptions.

This document contains detailed description of twenty six (26) X.500

implementations - DSAs, DUAs, and DUA interfaces.

1. Introduction

This document catalogs currently available implementations of X.500,

including commercial products and openly available offerings. For

the purposes of this survey, we classify X.500 products as,

DSA

A DSA is an OSI application process that provides the Directory

functionality,

DUA

A DUA is an OSI application process that represents a user in

accessing the Directory and uses the DAP to communicate with a

DSA, and

DUA Interface

A DUA Interface is an application process that represents a user

in accessing the Directory using either DAP but supporting only

a subset of the DAP functionality or a protocol different from

DAP to communicate with a DSA or DUA.

Section 2 of this document contains a listing of implementations

cross referenced by keyword. This list should aid in identifying

implementations that meet your criteria.

To compile this catalog, the IDS Working Group solicited input from

the X.500 community by surveying several Internet mailing lists,

including: iso@nic.ddn.mil, isode@nic.ddn.mil, osi-ds@cs.ucl.ac.uk,

and ietf-ids@umich.edu. We also contacted many people by telephone

and sent the template to several individuals and mailed a floppy disk

containing the survey template to a person who did not have Internet

access.

Readers are encouraged to submit comments regarding both the form and

content of this memo. New submissions are welcome. Please direct

input to the Integrated Directory Services (IDS) Working Group

(ietf-ids@umich.edu) or to the editors. IDS will produce new ver-

sions of this document when a sufficient number of changes have been

received. This will be determined by the IDS chairpersons.

1.1 Purpose

The Internet has experienced a steady growth in X.500 piloting

activities. This document hopes to provide an easily accessible

source of information on X.500 implementations for those who wish to

consider X.500 technology for deploying a Dire...
