Title : LDAP: The Binary Encoding Option
Author(s) : S. Legg
Filename : draft-legg-ldap-binary-00.txt
Pages : 9
Date : 2003-6-19
Each attribute stored in a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol
(LDAP) directory has a defined syntax (i.e. data type). A syntax
definition specifies how attribute values conforming to the syntax
are normally represented when transferred in LDAP operations. This
representation is referred to as the LDAP-specific encoding to
distinguish it from other methods of encoding attribute values. This
document defines an attribute option, the binary option, which can be
used to specify that the associated attribute values are instead
encoded according to the Basic Encoding Rules (BER) used by X.500

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
