A new Request for Comments is now available in online RFC libraries.
Title: Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
and X.500 Component Matching Rules
Author(s): S. Legg
Status: Standards Track
Date: February 2004
I-D Tag: draft-legg-ldapext-component-matching-11.txt
The syntaxes of attributes in a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol
(LDAP) or X.500 directory range from simple data types, such as text
string, integer, or boolean, to complex structured data types, such as
the syntaxes of the directory schema operational attributes. Matching
rules defined for the complex syntaxes usually only
provide the most immediately useful matching capability. This
document defines generic matching rules that can match any user
selected component parts in an attribute value of any arbitrarily
complex attribute syntax.
This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
