This draft is a work item of the LDAP (v3) Revision Working Group of the IETF.
Title : Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (v3): Attribute Syntax Definitions
Author(s) : K. Dally
Filename : draft-ietf-ldapbis-syntaxes-01.txt
Pages : 54
Date : 30-Nov-01
The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)  requires that
the contents of AttributeValue fields in protocol elements be octet
strings. This document defines a set of syntaxes for LDAPv3, and
the rules by which attribute values of these syntaxes are represented
in the LDAP protocol. The syntaxes defined in this document are
referenced by this and other documents that define attribute types.
In addition to defining the set of attribute syntaxes which LDAP
servers should support, this document defines other schema elements
(mandatory and optional) that are common to all LDAP servers.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
