Abstract

� � This document specifies the set of RFCs comprising the Lightweight

� � Directory Access Protocol Version 3 (LDAPv3), and addresses the "IESG

� � Note" attached to RFCs 2251 through 2256.

1.� Background and Motivation

� � The specification for the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol

� � version 3 (LDAPv3) nominally comprises eight RFCs which were issued

� � in two distinct subsets at separate times -- RFCs 2251 through 2256

� � first, then RFCs 2829 and 2830 following later.

� � RFC 2251 through 2256 do not mandate the implementation of any

� � satisfactory authentication mechanisms and hence were published with

� � an "IESG Note" discouraging implementation and deployment of LDAPv3

� � clients or servers implementing update functionality until a Proposed

� � Standard for mandatory authentication in LDAPv3 is published.

� � RFC 2829 was subsequently published in answer to the IESG Note.

� � The purpose of this document is to explicitly specify the set of RFCs

� � comprising LDAPv3, and formally address the IESG Note through

� � explicit inclusion of RFC 2829.
