Abstract

This document updates the specification of the component matching rules for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and X.500 directories (RFC3687) by collecting the Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) definitions of the component matching rules into an appropriately identified ASN.1 module so that other specifications may reference the component matching rule definitions from within their own ASN.1 modules.

Abstract

   This document updates the specification of the component matching
   rules for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and X.500
   directories (RFC3687) by collecting the Abstract Syntax Notation One
   (ASN.1) definitions of the component matching rules into an
   appropriately identified ASN.1 module so that other specifications
   may reference the component matching rule definitions from within
   their own ASN.1 modules.

1.  Introduction

   The structure or data type of data held in an attribute of a
   Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) [LDAP] or X.500 [X500]
   directory is described by the attribute's syntax.  Attribute syntaxes
   range from simple data types, such as text string, integer, or
   boolean, to complex data types, for example, the syntaxes of the
   directory schema operational attributes.  RFC 3687 [CMR] defines a
   generic way of matching user selected components in a directory
   attribute value of any arbitrarily complex attribute syntax.

   This document updates RFC 3687 by collecting the Abstract Syntax
   Notation One (ASN.1) [ASN1] definitions of RFC 3687 into an
   appropriately identified ASN.1 module so that other specifications
   may reference these definitions from within their own ASN.1 modules.
