A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.


	Title		: Attribute Scoped Query: control for searching 
                          DN-valued multi-value attributes

There are times when an LDAP search would return a DN-valued 
attribute with multiple values.  As the number of values in a multi-
value attribute increases, it becomes apparent that a way to query 
the multi-valued attribute is increasingly valuable.  This document 
describes an LDAP extended search control that returns DN-valued 
attributes as objects and their respective attributes in the 
searchResultEntry and also allows filters to be applied to the 
values in a large multi-valued attribute.  Using this control to 
search multi-valued attributes reduces the number of client round 
trips.

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.
