NAME: LDAP (v3) Revision BOF
Kurt Zeilenga <kurt(_at_)openldap(_dot_)org>
RL "Bob" Morgan <rlmorgan(_at_)washington(_dot_)edu>
Policy: You must be subscribed to post.
LDAPv3 core specifications (RFC 2251-56) must be revised if
they are to be progressed to Draft Standard per the IESG
Note contained within these documents. With the approval
of RFC 2829 and 2830, the necessary secure authentication
mechanisms to obtain Draft Standard status are now available.
In addition, the community has obtain a wealth of operational
experience using the current specifications. The community
has identified a number of areas where the specifications
need to amended. These amendments include a few significant
substantive changes, a fair number of lessor substantive changes,
and many clarifications. A forum for discussing and addressing
these issues is needed.
The purpose of this BOF is to discuss proposed updates to the
LDAPv3 core protocol specification (RFC 2251-56, 2829-30),
to identify work items, and discuss formation of a working
group specifically chartered to address identified work items.
Extensions to LDAPv3 are not within the scope of this BOF
as this is the realm of existing IETF working groups.
The LDAPv3 specifications were developed by the ASID and
LDAPext working groups. The ASID working group is defunct.
The LDAPext WG is focused on significant protocol extensions
such as Access Control, APIs, Referrals, and CLDAP. A separate
working group is currently proposed to focus energies to address
LDAPv3 specification updates while not distracting LDAPext from
their chartered work. However, at the discretion of the IESG,
work items identified by this BOF may be assigned to LDAPext
or other appropriate WG (after appropriate charter review).
