Introduction This document catalogs currently available implementations of X.500, including commercial products and openly available offerings. For the purposes of this survey, we classify X.500 products as, DSA A DSA is an OSI application process that provides the Directory functionality, DUA A DUA is an OSI application process that represents a user in accessing the Directory and uses the DAP to communicate with a DSA, and DUA Interface A DUA Interface is an application process that represents a user in accessing the Directory using either DAP but supporting only a subset of the DAP functionality or a protocol different from DAP to communicate with a DSA or DUA. Section 2 of this document contains a listing of implementations cross referenced by keyword. This list should aid in identifying implementations that meet your criteria. To compile this catalog, the IDS Working Group solicited input from the X.500 community by publishing a URL for a set of on-line description forms deployed on the WWW as a home page on an InterNIC server. This URL Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 2]
RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 (http://www.internic.net/projects/x500catalog/catalogtop.html) was advertised on the following directory-related mailing lists: iso@nic.ddn.mil, isode@nic.ddn.mil, osi-ds@cs.ucl.ac.uk, ids@merit.edu, ietf-asid@umich.edu, mhs-ds@mercury.udev.cdc.com, nadf-l@ema.org, and dssig@nist.gov. Readers are encouraged to submit comments regarding both the forms and content of this memo. New submissions are welcome. Please direct input to the Integrated Directory Services (IDS) Working Group (ietf-ids@umich.edu) or to the authors. IDS will produce new versions of this document when a significant number of substantive comments have been received or when significant updates and/or modifications to X.500-related standards documents have been ratified. This will be determined by the IDS chairpersons. 1.1 Purpose The Internet has experienced a steady growth in X.500 piloting activities. This document hopes to provide an easily accessible source of information on X.500 implementations for those who wish to consider X.500 technology for deploying a Directory service. 1.2 Scope This document contains descriptions of both free and commercial X.500 implementations. It does not provide instructions on how to install, run, or manage these implementations. The descriptions and indices are provided to make the readers aware of available options and thus enable more informed choices. 1.3 Disclaimer Implementation descriptions were written by implementors and vendors, and not by the editors. We worked with the description authors to ensure uniformity and readability, but cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the descriptions, nor the stability of the implementations. Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 3]
RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 1.4 Overview Section 1 contains introductory information. Section 2 contains a list of keywords, their definitions, a cross reference of the X.500 implementations by these keywords and a table containing implementor name, implementor abreviation, and the page of this document on which the description begins for a particular implementor. Section 3 contains the X.500 implementation descriptions. Section 4 has a list of references. Section 6 lists the editors' addresses. 1.5 Acknowledgments The creation of this catalog would not have been possible without the efforts of the description authors and the members of the IDS Working Group. Our special thanks to the editors of [RFC 1632], Linda Millington and Sri Sataluri who graciously contributed the nroff source file used to structure their version of the catalog. 2. Keywords Keywords are abbreviated attributes of the X.500 implementations. The list of keywords defined below was derived from the implementation descriptions themselves. Implementations were indexed by a keyword either as a result of: (1) explicit, not implied, reference to a particular capability in the implementation description text, or (2) input from the implementation description author(s). 2.1 Keyword Definitions This section contains keyword definitions. They have been organized and grouped by functional category. The definitions are ordered first alphabetically by keyword category, and second alphabetically by implementation name within keyword category. 2.1.1 Availability Available via FTP Implementation is available using FTP.

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 NAME Critical Angle X.500 Enabler (CAIx500e) ABSTRACT The X.500 Enabler product allows an LDAP-only directory server to be integrated into X.500 environments, by transparently converting X.500 DAP and DSP requests into LDAP requests. The initial release scheduled for 4Q96 will allow for connections from X.500-capable clients and servers to an LDAP-capable server, and will support the following features: * LDAP version 2, as defined in RFC 1777, * all attributes defined for LDAPv2, with the exception of certificates and revocation lists, * X.500(1988) DAP and DSP protocols over TCP/IP (using RFC 1006), * the following operations: Bind (with none or simple credentials), Read, Compare, List, Search, Abandon, AddEntry, ModifyEntry, RemoveEntry and ModifyRDN, * the X.500(1993) critical extensions field, to aid in deployments incorporating 1993 DSAs. This release will be available for Solaris 2.5 (SPARC and Intel) and Windows NT 4.0 Server (Intel). The product is expected to enter a public beta test period in September 1996. Beta test evaluation copies will be free (limited to two copies per site) but will be set to expire in December 1996. Released versions of X.500 Enabler will be licensed per server, and will be distributed over the Internet. COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs) The X.500 enabler accepts DAP and DSP connections. It supports Bind (with none or simple credentials), Read, Compare, List, Search, Abandon, AddEntry, ModifyEntry, RemoveEntry and ModifyRDN. Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 34]
RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 It supports the attributes and object classes defined in X.520 and X.521. COMPLIANCE with X.500-1993 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs) The X.500 Enabler will accept connections from X.500(1993) DUAs and DSAs. It supports the X.511(1993) critical extension mechanism. Non-critical protocol fields which do not map onto LDAPv2 are ignored. Attribute and object classes from X.520(1993) and X.521(1993) are supported, including collective. Operational attributes from X.501 are supported, with the exception of subschema. As LDAPv3-based servers become available, it is expected that the X.500 Enabler will be upgraded to map more of the X.500(1993) protocol onto LDAPv3. CONFORMANCE WITH PROPOSED INTERNET STANDARDS [RFC 1006] is the supported transport service. The product supports the object classes and attributes defined in RFC 1274. CONSISTENCE WITH INFORMATIONAL AND EXPERIMENTAL RFCs [No information provided. -- Ed.] INTEROPERABILITY The X.500 Enabler is being tested with public-domain X.500 and LDAP clients and servers, and with the various X.500 clients and servers connected to the PARADISE project, such as from the ISODE Consortium. Critical Angle intends to do interoperability testing with commercial LDAP-only servers as they become available. PILOT CONNECTIVITY This product will be used to connect LDAP-only servers, such as University of Michigan's slapd, and many vendor's forthcoming commercial LDAP server products, into the PARADISE project directory, so that they can be accessed by LDAP and X.500 DUAs throughout the project. Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 35]
RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 BUGS Bugs reports may be sent to <bug-x500e@critical-angle.com>. CAVEATS AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS X.509 certificates and revocation lists are not supported due to limitations in the LDAP version 2 protocol. This restriction will be removed once LDAP version 3 servers become generally available. Under Windows NT there are limitations on the number of simultaneous incoming connections. INTERNETWORKING ENVIRONMENT This product supports RFC 1006 for DAP and DSP, and LDAP over TCP. HARDWARE PLATFORMS This product will initially be available for Sun Solaris 2.5 SPARC and Intel, and Windows NT Server 4.0 Intel. Subsequent versions may be available on additional platforms. SOFTWARE PLATFORMS An LDAP-based server, such as the freely-available slapd, is required. It does not need to run on the same host as the X.500 Enabler. NUMBER OF IMPLEMENTATIONS IN THE FIELD [No information provided. -- Ed.] AVAILABILITY This product is licensed per-host server, and is distributed over the Internet. In addition to discounts for large deployment orders, subscription programs permit customers to obtain subsequent update releases at a substantial discount.

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 NAME DC X500 Data Connection Ltd 100 Church Street Enfield Middlesex EN2 6BQ UK ABSTRACT DC X500 provides a truly scalable X.500 based enterprise directory server with the necessary architectural flexibility to enable integration with existing database and directory technologies. From a pure X.500 standpoint, DC X500 provides a full function state-of-the-art DSA implementation. * Architected from scratch according to the 1993 X.500 standards (i.e. not a 1988 DSA with 1993 features grafted on) * Support for all the key X.500 OSI protocols: * Directory Access Protocol (DAP) for user access * Directory System Protocol (DSP) for distributed DSA comunications * Directory Information Shadowing Protocol (DISP) to support replication between servers to give improved performance in a distributed network * Support of the 1993 Basic Access Control and Simplified Access Control models * Support for the key Internet X.500 related standards: * integrated Lightweight DAP (LDAP)for DUA access * Madman MIBs for easy integration with SNMP The DC X500 architecture is based on Data Connection's underlying product architecture which has evolved since 1987 and includes: * genuine multi-threaded implementation Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 42]
RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 * true portability (the product is available on a range of operating systems e.g Windows NT, AIX, HP-UX. OS/2 etc and it is possible to port the core technology to any hardware/software platform) * secure service recording for operation tracking and billing * support for system monitoring (both alarms and statistics) Key product features include: * Name resolution and integrated use of Search Indices based on 2-3 trees leads to high performance operation evaluation (subsecond response times on million entry DSAs) * Generic schema support based on 1993 concepts that allows customers to tailor the schema to meet their precise data structuing requirements * System recycle time is minimised (e.g. DC X500 can be backed up while running and search indices are dynamically updated), helping achieve the goal of continuous (24x7) availability and high reliability. * No artificial software constraints are imposed resulting in a truly scalable product - assuming the availability of the necessary hardware DC X500 can be configured to support millions of entries in a single DSA. DC X500 is certified for used within the Paradise Pilot project. The product has also undergone interoperability testing at the EuroSInet interoperability workshops in Europe.

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 NAME DE ABSTRACT DE (Directory Enquiries) is intended to be a simple-to-use DUA interface, suitable for the naive user, and suitable for running as a public access dua. it will work on any terminal. The user is presented with a series of (verbose) prompts asking for person's name department organization country. There is extensive on-line help. The matching algorithms are such that near matches are presented to the user before less good matches. There have been a few minor enhancements since the description in [RFC 1632]. The power searching feature still sets DE apart from most other DUAs - this allows a user to search for an entry even when they do not know the name of the organisation in which the person works - you still have to specify the country. DE also allows UFN style searching. DE uses slightly different search algorithms depending on whether it is accessing part of the Directory mastered by a Quipu DSA - Quipu DSAs tend to use lots of replication and so encourage searching. DE incorporates a QOS feature where it maintains a database of past information availability and DSA responsiveness. Translations exist into at least 4 different languages. DE runs over ISODE DAP and University of Michigan LDAP. There is a version of DE, called DOS-DE, which has been ported to DOS, and this uses LDAP. DE was funded by the COSINE PARADISE project, and DE is used as the PARADISE public access dua. You can test the software by telnet to directory.ja.net and logging in as dua -- no password required.

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 NAME DIR.X-SYNC (tm) V2.0 Siemens Nixdorf Informationssysteme AG ABSTRACT DIR.X-SYNC V2.0 enables the synchronization of existing e-mail address directories in the X.500-based DIR.X directory service. The standard DIR.X, DIR.X-SYNC and DIR.D (all available from Siemens Nixdorf) products are the foundations on which the corporate directory solutions can be tailored to meet the customer's needs. The corporate directory then becomes the universal information system within the company. The user can access corporate directory information in different ways: * Using DIR.D, SNI's Windows client for the X.500 service, PC users can gain easy access to the DIR.X server containing the corporate directory data. The data found can be transferred to other applications by means of DDE, drag and drop or cut and paste. (See DIR.D V2.6 for further information). * Query by mail: Authorized users can access data stored in the central or distributed directory system over their own mail system. DIR.X-SYNC retrieves the inquiry transmitted by mail and directs it on to the X.500 service. The search results are then delivered back to the user by mail. Using a WWW interface based on TCL scripts Query by mail does not require additional software on the end system. Each mail system connected to the X.400 backbone (e.g. MS-Mail, cc:Mail etc.) can use this function. DIR.X-SYNC currently supports the address formats of the following e-mail systems: * MAIL.X-OD V2.3 * MAIL.2000 V1.2, AKOM * MS-Mail * cc:Mail * Intelligent Messaging Mail (Banyan) Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 74]
RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 The standardized ISO-10021 interface for X.400 addresses is supported, enabling need for extension. This means that any type of system capable of generating this format (e.g. WordPerfect, Lotus Notes) can be connected. Address acknowledgment is carried out in ISO format. Functions for the administrator: * Export: Addresses can be exported from local directories. They are delivered as mail messages in ASCII format to the DIR.X-SYNC server. * Upload: The upload server stores the exported local addresses in DIR.X as globally valid X.400 addresses. * Query by Mail: DIR.X-SYNC enables mail members to send a search to the DIR.X-SYNC server by e-mail. Using this function, authorized administrators of the synchronized directories can acquire copies of the corporate directory data. * Administration of the DIR.X-SYNC server with an administration tool which can be used via command line or a command file. Other features include: * Replication and distribution: In addition to the central solution with a single corporate directory server, DIR.X-SYNC also supports replicated or distributed data storage in DIR.X-SYNC server. * Authentication/Authorization: To prevent unauthorized use of the corporate directory system, the O/R addresses of the authorized administrators and users are configured by the DIR.X-SYNC administrator. When a query by mail or an update arrives, the sender address is compared with this address. * Logging: In the case of error, e.g. incorrect file format, the sender (and the administrator configurable) are informed of the fault by mail. At the same time, the error message is saved in a log file for the DIR.X-SYNC administrator. In addition, a "history file" enables the monitoring of the uploads that have run or are currently running COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs) DIR.X-SYNC is a directory application.

It includes: * a Directory System Agent (DSA), * Directory User Agents (DUAs). * local network connections * remote workstation access * a WEB and videotex access * data updating tools * a directory editing tool Forum LOOK'UP is a product based on PIZARRO, the research prototype developed at INRIA by Christian Huitema's team, and commercialized by Telis, a member of the France Telecom group. Characteristics of the DSA are: * The DAP and DSP protocols are provided conformant with X.500 (88). * The DIB is maintained in ASN.1 encoded format in the Unix file system. * Utilities are provided to load and dump the DIB from and to ASCII text files. * As an option, an ORACLE V7 database can also be used. * The DIT structure is held in main memory. Frequently used attributes may be held in inverted tables in memory to speed up searches. * Knowledge management: knowledge on managed domains is stored in Forum LOOK'UP specific attributes of the DSA entries. Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 80]
RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 * Schema: The X.500 (88), X.400 (88) and most of the Cosine and Internet Schema are supported. Object class and attribute definitions are enforced. Users may define their own. * Simple authentication is provided strong authentication and signed operations have been tested operationally through Telis's participation in PASSWORD, a VALUE project with aim to pilot a European security infrastructure for network applications. * Access control : the DSA offers a mechanism defined by Telis that is functionally equivalent to a profile of the X500 '93 access control mechanism. The mechanism is based on the notion of administrative domains (autonomous and semi- autonomous). A domain defines the user groups (categories) and their access rights (consult, modify) to specified attribute types. The access rights are defined in prescriptive and entry ACI attributes. * Phonetic searches : administrators may specify a language (English, French, ...) for a subtree of the DIT. Approximate (phonetic) searches will then be carried out in the given language. The software loads a rule database to which new languages and new rules may be added easily. * Management: a Forum LOOK'UP DSA object has been defined to allow operational parameters of the DSA to be managed via DAP. Forum LOOK'UP conforms to X.500 (88) as specified in poaragraph 9 of X.519 Administration tools are provided : * to generate usage statistics automatically and distribute these by mail to administrators * to replicate subtrees of the DIT to other FORUM LOOK'UP DSAs and automatically update shadow copies, * to extract hardcopy listings from the database in an Excel compatible format for "paper" directories, all the management tasks are performed through a GUI (X/Motif). * The GUI includes a "dashboard" for monitoring of servers and the hardware they are installed on. * The DUAs include a graphical directory browser with powerful search functionality for PCs and Macintosh.

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 NAME FX*500 Firefox International Limited ABSTRACT FX*500 is a core component of Firefoxs product suite for mail, messaging and directories. FX*500 provides a Directory System Agent (DSA) which adheres to the latest 1993 X.500 standards. FX*500 may be used in conjunction with the Firefox FX*400 messaging products or may be combined with a range of Directory User Agent and Gateway products in order to satisfy a broad range of directory requirements. FX*500 affords unique integration opportunities with Novell's NetWare Directory Service (NDS) by offering the option of true dynamic directory integration between NDS and X.500. FX*500 provides support for key features of the X.500 1993 standard while continuing to support interworking with 1988 based directory user agents and system agents. The main 1993 features of X.500 supported by FX*500 are: * Basic Access Control * The 1993 DSA Information Model * Replication and Shadowing In summary, FX*500 supports: * 1988 and 1993 X.500 Directory Access Protocol (DAP) * 1988 and 1993 X.500 Directory System Protocol (DSP) * 1993 X.500 Directory Information Shadowing Protocol (DISP) * 1993 Basic (or Simplified) Access Control * the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), as defined by [RFC 1777] Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 85]

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 NAME ISODE Consortium Release 3.0 X.500(1993) Directory ISODE Consortium Ltd. ABSTRACT This implementation is a source release of an X.500(1993) Directory System Agent (DSA). It has been designed an implemented as an X.500 1993 DSA not as a 1988 DSA with '93 extensions. Emphasis has been placed on providing support for a flexible information model, access control, X.509 security features, and standard replication. The 1993 DSA offers a strong technical foundation on which to build an information and messaging infrastructure that relies on robust and scalable directory services. The implementation of this DSA incorporates the experience gained through the development, support, and maintenance of the earlier QUIPU, as well as operational experience and standards support. COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs) The DSA is aligned to the 1988 ISO IS and the NIST OIW Directory Implementors Guide Version 1. X.500(1993) features such as replication, access control, as well as X.509 certification are also available. Interoperability testing with other DSAs has been performed. COMPLIANCE with X.500-1993 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs) Please contact the ISODE Consortium if you wish to obtain our protocol information conformance statements. PICS may also be available from member organizations for their binary products. CONFORMANCE WITH PROPOSED INTERNET STANDARDS [RFC 1781],[RFC 1779],[RFC 1778],[RFC 1777], [RFC 1274], [RFC 1277].

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 NAME LDAP University of Michigan ABSTRACT UM-LDAP is an implementation of the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol. LDAP is a draft Internet standard directory service protocol that runs over TCP/IP. It can be used to provide a stand- alone directory service, or to provide lightweight access to the X.500 directory. LDAP is defined by [RFC 1777] and [RFC 1778]. The UM-LDAP package includes the following components: * slapd - a stand-alone LDAP directory server * slurpd - a stand-alone LDAP replication server * ldapd - an LDAP-to-X.500 gateway server * centipede - an LDAP centroid generation and maintenance program * libldap - an LDAP client library * liblber - a lightweight BER/DER encoding/decoding library * ldif tools - data conversion tools for use with slapd * in.xfingerd - a finger-to-LDAP gateway server * go500 - a gopher-to-LDAP gateway server for searching * go500gw - a gopher-to-LDAP gateway server for searching and browsing * rcpt500 - an email-to-LDAP query responder * mail500 - an LDAP-capable mailer * fax500 - an LDAP-capable mailer that supports remote printing * LDAP tools - A collection of shell-based LDAP utility programs Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 108]
RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 In addition, there are some contributed components: * web500 - an HTTP-to-LDAP gateway * whois++d - a WHOIS++-to-LDAP gateway * saucer - a simple command-line oriented client program The latest information about LDAP can always be found on the LDAP Home Page at this URL: http://www.umich.edu/~rsug/ldap/ COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs) The U-M LDAP distribution is a complete implementation of the LDAP protocol. The LDAP protocol does not support access to all X.500 features and operations. The operations supported are bind, search, compare, add, delete, modify, modify RDN, and abandon. Note that read and list operations can be emulated using the search operation. Size and time limits may be specified, as may alias dereferencing and searching, but all X.500 service controls are not supported. COMPLIANCE with X.500-1993 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs) Since the LDAP protocol itself has not yet been updated to support any 1993-specific X.500 features, this implementation does support any 1993 features yet either. CONFORMANCE WITH PROPOSED INTERNET STANDARDS Believed to be compliant with: [RFC 1274], [RFC 1777], [RFC 1778], [RFC 1779], [RFC 1781] CONSISTENCE WITH INFORMATIONAL AND EXPERIMENTAL RFCs Includes an implementation of the LDAP API, as defined in [RFC 1823]. Search filters used within UM-LDAP comply with [RFC 1558]. INTEROPERABILITY The current implementation of the X.500-backended LDAP server (ldapd) is known to work with ISODE-based DAP libraries and the QUIPU DSA. PILOT CONNECTIVITY DUA connectivity should be possible to all pilots. Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 109]
RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 BUGS Bug reports should be sent to bug-ldap@umich.edu. CAVEATS AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS None, aside from those mentioned above under completeness. INTERNETWORKING ENVIRONMENT LDAP clients use TCP to communicate with the LDAP server. The LDAP server normally uses [RFC 1006] with TCP/IP to communicate with the DSA, though any other transport mechanism for DSA communication supported by ISODE should be possible. HARDWARE PLATFORMS The complete UM-LDAP package has been ported to a wide variety of UNIX systems, including: Sun3 and SPARCs running SunOS 4.1.x or Solaris 2.x, DECStations running Ultrix 4.3, HP 9000 series running HP-UX 9.05, IBM RS6000 running AIX 3.2.5, PCs running SCO, FreeBSD, NetBSD, or LINUX, DEC Alphas running OSF/1, and NeXTStatios running NeXTSTEP 3.2. The complete package has also been ported to VMS. In addition, the LDAP client libraries and some client programs have been ported to Apple Macintosh and PCs running MSDOS or Windows.

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 NAME PMDF-X500 from: Innosoft International, Inc. 1050 East Garvey Ave. South West Covina, California 91790 Phone: +1 818-919-3600 email: sales@innosoft.com ABSTRACT PMDF-X500 is Innosoft's implementation of the X.500 standards for Directory Services. PMDF-X500 is based upon the ISODE Consortium code-base. The core of PMDF-X500 is the Directory System Agent (DSA) server. This server provides directory information to Directory User Agents (DUA) using either OSI or TCP/IP networking protocols. Since PMDF-X500 is based on a widely used implementation, it interoperates particularly well with a whole host of X.500-based products from other sources. In order to facilitate initial loading of directory data as well as ongoing coordination with other directory services, PMDF-X500 includes tools to import from and export directory information to Entry Description File (EDF) files. EDF files are flat text files. PMDF-X500 provides directory coordination functions using EDF files for the following directories: * X.500 DSAs supporting LDAP access * cc:Mail * Digital's DDS * GroupWise * Microsoft Mail * PMDF generic databases COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs) OSI directory services as specified in CCITT X.500 Recommendations and ISO 9594 use the Directory Access Protocol (DAP) and the Directory System Protocol (DSP). Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 138]
RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 COMPLIANCE with X.500-1993 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs) PMDF-X500 does not yet support the 1993 changes to the X.500 standard. Support for the 1993 X.500 recommendations is planned for a future release of PMDF-X500. CONFORMANCE WITH PROPOSED INTERNET STANDARDS PMDF-X500 supports DAP and DSP accesses using Internet protocols as specified in [RFC 1006]. In addition, the Internet community has proposed two lightweight alternatives to DAP called Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), which is specified in [RFC 1777], and Connectionless Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (CLDAP), which is specified in [RFC 1798]. LDAP and CLDAP, which are currently specified to run over TCP/IP, are much simpler protocols than DAP and were designed to reduce the cost of entry associated with using X.500 protocols in client applications. PMDF-X500 includes both LDAP and CLDAP servers. The LDAP server accesses X.500 directory information using DAP to communicate with X.500 DSAs. PMDF-X500 provides an LDAP server which translates LDAP requests into DAP requests to communicate with X.500 DSAs. CLDAP defines a very low overhead method for accessing X.500 directory information. CLDAP is suitable for providing access to information that does not require access controls. CONSISTENCE WITH INFORMATIONAL AND EXPERIMENTAL RFCs [No information provided. -- Ed.] INTEROPERABILITY PMDF-X500 interoperates with a large number of DUAs and DSAs. This is demonstated by the fact that PMDF-X500 is DSA used by several Internet White Pages Project participants. PMDF-X500 DSA interoperability includes at least all of the DSA that are used in the White Pages Project. PMDF-X500 is delivered with several DUAs and in addition is know to support the DUAs from Unisys and Digital Equipment Corporation as well as the publically available DUAs MaX500, Cello, Swix, and the NASA DUA. PILOT CONNECTIVITY PMDF-X500 is used by several sites that are participants of the Internet White Pages Project include the Innosoft DSA. Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 139]
RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 BUGS [No information provided. -- Ed.] CAVEATS AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS [No information provided. -- Ed.] INTERNETWORKING ENVIRONMENT DAP and DSP are layered on top of the OSI protocol suite. PMDF-X500 supports this protocol suite over multiple network transports. For a pure OSI protocol stack, DECnet/OSI can be used to provide the lower layers of the stack. In addition, PMDF-X500 supports running OSI upper layer protocols over a TCP/IP transport in accordance with [RFC 1006]. It is important to note that while [RFC 1006] specifies TCP/IP as a transport, all of the OSI upper layer protocols are always used with DAP and DSP.

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 NAME X500-DS X500-DUA Bull S.A. ABSTRACT X500-DS and X500-DUA are integral part of the large Bull OSI offer. Although based on the DCE/GDS (Distributed Computing Environment/Global Directory Service) of OSF, those two products may be installed and used without the DCE environment. Some enhancements have been added for the user and the management facilities. X500-DS is designed to implement both the DUA and the DSA functions, whilst X500-DUA only provides the DUA functions. The X500-DUA package contains: * The standards APIs XOM (X/Open OSI-Abstract-Data Manipulation API) and XDS (X/Open Directory Service API) for the development of portable applications, * A core DUA to translate all user's requests (bind, read, list, compare, modify, modifyRDN, search, add, remove, unbind ...) into the DAP protocol used for communication with distant DSAs, * The OSI standard high layers (ASN.1, ROSE, ACSE, Presentation and Session) for communication with the distant DSAs. The interface with the low layers is XTI. [RFC 1006] is supported under XTI or the OSI Session, * A DUA Cache to improve performances when accessing remote DSAs, * A powerful management application facilitating the configuration of the product and controlling the operations, logs and traces, * A user application for the manipulations of the database entries, * A generic tool to load and unload ASCII and binary files in/from distributed DSAs, Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 157]
RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 * The support of the LDAP [RFC 1777] thanks to an LDAP Server, * A DUA Server that allows to use A-Window-To-Directory (refer to this DUA product description) on a PC. The X500-DS package contains: * All components of the X500-DUA, * A core DSA to process all requests received from distant DUAs through DAP protocol or from distant DSAs through DSP protocol, * The support of the referral, chained and multi-casting modes of operation, access control lists and management of knowledge information (for distribution, shadows and copies of sub-trees), * The support of the simple authentication and of the DCE authentication, * A management application for managing the schema information (creation, deletion and modification of object classes and of attribute types, management of the rules of the DIT). * A C-ISAM database that is specially designed for high performances: e.g. less than 10 ms to read an entry on an Escala at the XOM/XDS interface. These two products are easely installed, configured and administered thanks to the System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) screens of AIX. COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs) Compliant with EWOS and OIW Agreements Consists of both DUA and DSA implementation according to the '88 CCITT X.500 and ISO 9594 standard. The X/Open standard XDS and XOM interface libraries are also provided. When the product is installed with the DCE environment, XDS and XOM interfaces are also used to access DCE/CDS (Local Cell Directory Service) transparently. A GDA (Global Directory Agent) serves then as the gateway between the DCE CDS and GDS. COMPLIANCE with X.500-1993 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs) [New description field -- Ed.] Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 158]
RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997 CONFORMANCE WITH PROPOSED INTERNET STANDARDS Supports [RFC 1277], [RFC 1777]. CONSISTENCE WITH INFORMATIONAL AND EXPERIMENTAL RFCs [No information provided--Ed.] INTEROPERABILITY This implementation of DAP and DSP can interoperate with other X.500 implementations from other Cebit and EUROSINET demo participants including IBM, HP, ICL, Siemens-Nixdorf, SUN, Marben, NEXOR, etc. It also interoperates with ISODE QUIPU. PILOT CONNECTIVITY [No information provided--Ed.] BUGS Bull S.A. provides complete software maintenance with the products. CAVEATS AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS [No information provided--Ed.] INTERNETWORKING ENVIRONMENT OSI TP4 with CLNP (WAN - LAN) OSI TP0, 2 & 4 with X.25 (WAN) [RFC 1006] with TCP/IP Either BSD sockets or XTI can be used to access the transports. Through XTI, both OSI and TCP/IP protocols are possible on the same machine, thus permitting to build a Directory Service distributed on OSI and TCP/IP networks.
