- Thread-topic: matching large attributes
I need to be able to store (somehow) a 128-bit fixed length security key
as an LDAP attribute and search very efficiently to locate objects
containing this attribute (equality only; no substrings or other
comparisions are necessary).
What syntax and matching rules should I specify? It looks like the
attribute syntax could be binary (188.8.131.52.4.1.14184.108.40.206.5) but I
see no binary matching syntax.
I can always convert it into text if I have to, but efficiency will be
very important here and I think maintaining and index on a ~32 character
string would not be the most efficient way to do this. I did not see
anything in RFC 2252 pertaining to matching binary data.
