RFC 2849, "The LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF) - Technical Specification", June 2000

Source of RFC: IETF - NON WORKING GROUP
Area Assignment: app

Errata ID: 4377

Section LDIF Syntax says:

ldap-oid                 = 1*DIGIT 0*1("." 1*DIGIT)
                           ; An LDAPOID, as defined in [4]

It should say:

ldap-oid                 = 1*DIGIT 0*("." 1*DIGIT)
                           ; An LDAPOID, as defined in [4]

Notes:

ldap-oid syntax on RFC2849 allow only ONE dot.
But it should allow decimal string separated by multi dots.

RFC2251 LDAPOID definition:
The LDAPOID is a notational convenience to indicate that the
permitted value of this string is a (UTF-8 encoded) dotted-decimal
representation of an OBJECT IDENTIFIER.

LDAPOID ::= OCTET STRING

For example,

1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.1.2.3
