Title : LDAP & X.500 Component Matching Rules
Author(s) : S. Legg
Filename : draft-legg-ldapext-component-matching-05.txt
Pages : 50
Date : 10-Jan-02
The syntaxes of attributes in an 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. The matching rules defined for the
complex syntaxes, if any, 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. Generic
string encodings for attribute and assertion values of arbitrary
syntax are also defined.

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
