Network Working Group M. Smith Request for Comments: 2798 Netscape Communications Category: Informational April 2000 Definition of the inetOrgPerson LDAP Object Class Status of this Memo This memo provides information for the Internet community. It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. Distribution of this memo is unlimited. Copyright Notice Copyright (C) The Internet Society (2000). All Rights Reserved. Abstract While the X.500 standards define many useful attribute types [X520] and object classes [X521], they do not define a person object class that meets the requirements found in today's Internet and Intranet directory service deployments. We define a new object class called inetOrgPerson for use in LDAP and X.500 directory services that extends the X.521 standard organizationalPerson class to meet these needs.

Full Copyright Statement...................................20 1. Background and Intended Usage The inetOrgPerson object class is a general purpose object class that holds attributes about people. The attributes it holds were chosen to accommodate information requirements found in typical Internet and Intranet directory service deployments. The inetOrgPerson object class is designed to be used within directory services based on the LDAP [RFC2251] and the X.500 family of protocols, and it should be useful in other contexts as well. There is no requirement for directory services implementors to use the inetOrgPerson object class; it is simply presented as well-documented class that implementors can choose to use if they find it useful. Smith Informational [Page 2]
RFC 2798 The LDAP inetOrgPerson Object Class April 2000 The attribute type and object class definitions in this document are written using the BNF form of AttributeTypeDescription and ObjectClassDescription given in [RFC2252]. In some cases lines have been folded for readability. Attributes that are referenced but not defined in this document are included in one of the following documents: The COSINE and Internet X.500 Schema [RFC1274] Definition of an X.500 Attribute Type and an Object Class to Hold Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) [RFC2079] A Summary of the X.500(96) User Schema for use with LDAPv3 [RFC2256] See Appendix A for a summary of the attribute types, associated syntaxes, and matching rules used in this document. 2. New Attribute Types Used in the inetOrgPerson Object Class 2.1. Vehicle license or registration plate. This multivalued field is used to record the values of the license or registration plate associated with an individual. ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.1 NAME 'carLicense' DESC 'vehicle license or registration plate' EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 ) 2.2. Department number Code for department to which a person belongs. This can also be strictly numeric (e.g., 1234) or alphanumeric (e.g., ABC/123). ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.2 NAME 'departmentNumber' DESC 'identifies a department within an organization' EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 ) Smith Informational [Page 3]
RFC 2798 The LDAP inetOrgPerson Object Class April 2000 2.3. Display Name When displaying an entry, especially within a one-line summary list, it is useful to be able to identify a name to be used. Since other attribute types such as 'cn' are multivalued, an additional attribute type is needed. Display name is defined for this purpose. ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.241 NAME 'displayName' DESC 'preferred name of a person to be used when displaying entries' EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 SINGLE-VALUE ) 2.4. Employee Number Numeric or alphanumeric identifier assigned to a person, typically based on order of hire or association with an organization. Single valued. ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.3 NAME 'employeeNumber' DESC 'numerically identifies an employee within an organization' EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 SINGLE-VALUE ) 2.5. Employee Type Used to identify the employer to employee relationship. Typical values used will be "Contractor", "Employee", "Intern", "Temp", "External", and "Unknown" but any value may be used. ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.4 NAME 'employeeType' DESC 'type of employment for a person' EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 ) Smith Informational [Page 4]
RFC 2798 The LDAP inetOrgPerson Object Class April 2000 2.6. JPEG Photograph Used to store one or more images of a person using the JPEG File Interchange Format [JFIF]. ( 0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.60 NAME 'jpegPhoto' DESC 'a JPEG image' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.28 ) Note that the jpegPhoto attribute type was defined for use in the Internet X.500 pilots but no referencable definition for it could be located. 2.7. Preferred Language Used to indicate an individual's preferred written or spoken language. This is useful for international correspondence or human- computer interaction. Values for this attribute type MUST conform to the definition of the Accept-Language header field defined in [RFC2068] with one exception: the sequence "Accept-Language" ":" should be omitted. This is a single valued attribute type. ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.39 NAME 'preferredLanguage' DESC 'preferred written or spoken language for a person' EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 SINGLE-VALUE ) ) 2.8. User S/MIME Certificate A PKCS#7 [RFC2315] SignedData, where the content that is signed is ignored by consumers of userSMIMECertificate values. It is recommended that values have a `contentType' of data with an absent `content' field. Values of this attribute contain a person's entire certificate chain and an smimeCapabilities field [RFC2633] that at a minimum describes their SMIME algorithm capabilities. Values for this attribute are to be stored and requested in binary form, as 'userSMIMECertificate;binary'. If available, this attribute is preferred over the userCertificate attribute for S/MIME applications. ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.40 NAME 'userSMIMECertificate' DESC 'PKCS#7 SignedData used to support S/MIME' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.5 ) Smith Informational [Page 5]
RFC 2798 The LDAP inetOrgPerson Object Class April 2000 2.9. User PKCS #12 PKCS #12 [PKCS12] provides a format for exchange of personal identity information. When such information is stored in a directory service, the userPKCS12 attribute should be used. This attribute is to be stored and requested in binary form, as 'userPKCS12;binary'. The attribute values are PFX PDUs stored as binary data. ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.216 NAME 'userPKCS12' DESC 'PKCS #12 PFX PDU for exchange of personal identity information' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.5 ) 3. Definition of the inetOrgPerson Object Class The inetOrgPerson represents people who are associated with an organization in some way. It is a structural class and is derived from the organizationalPerson class which is defined in X.521 [X521]. ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.2.2 NAME 'inetOrgPerson' SUP organizationalPerson STRUCTURAL MAY ( audio $ businessCategory $ carLicense $ departmentNumber $ displayName $ employeeNumber $ employeeType $ givenName $ homePhone $ homePostalAddress $ initials $ jpegPhoto $ labeledURI $ mail $ manager $ mobile $ o $ pager $ photo $ roomNumber $ secretary $ uid $ userCertificate $ x500uniqueIdentifier $ preferredLanguage $ userSMIMECertificate $ userPKCS12 ) ) For reference, we list the following additional attribute types that are part of the inetOrgPerson object class. These attribute types are inherited from organizationalPerson (which in turn is derived from the person object class): Smith Informational [Page 6]

RFC 2798 The LDAP inetOrgPerson Object Class April 2000 5. Security Considerations Attributes of directory entries are used to provide descriptive information about the real-world objects they represent, which can be people, organizations or devices. Most countries have privacy laws regarding the publication of information about people. Transfer of cleartext passwords are strongly discouraged where the underlying transport service cannot guarantee confidentiality and may result in disclosure of the password to unauthorized parties. 6. Acknowledgments The Netscape Directory Server team created the inetOrgPerson object class based on experience and customer requirements. Anil Bhavnani and John Kristian in particular deserve credit for all of the early design work. Many members of the Internet community, in particular those in the IETF ASID and LDAPEXT groups, also contributed to the design of this object class. 7. Bibliography [JFIF] E.

RFC 2798 The LDAP inetOrgPerson Object Class April 2000 ( 2.5.13.16 NAME 'bitStringMatch' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.6 ) ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.109.114.2 NAME 'caseIgnoreIA5Match' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.26 ) ( 2.5.13.11 NAME 'caseIgnoreListMatch' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.41 ) ( 2.5.13.2 NAME 'caseIgnoreMatch' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 ) ( 2.5.13.1 NAME 'distinguishedNameMatch' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.12 ) ( 2.5.13.8 NAME 'numericStringMatch' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.36 ) ( 2.5.13.0 NAME 'objectIdentifierMatch' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.38 ) ( 2.5.13.20 NAME 'telephoneNumberMatch' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.50 ) 9.3.2. Matching rule from RFC 2256 Note that the original definition of this matching rule can be found in X.520. ( 2.5.13.17 NAME 'octetStringMatch' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.40 ) 9.3.3. Additional matching rules from X.520 caseExactMatch ( 2.5.13.5 NAME 'caseExactMatch' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 ) This rule determines whether a presented string exactly matches an attribute value of syntax DirectoryString. It is identical to caseIgnoreMatch except that case is not ignored. Multiple adjoining whitespace characters are treated the same as an individual space, and leading and trailing whitespace is ignored. Smith Informational [Page 18]
RFC 2798 The LDAP inetOrgPerson Object Class April 2000 caseExactSubstringsMatch ( 2.5.13.7 NAME 'caseExactSubstringsMatch' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.58 ) This rules determines whether the initial, any and final substring elements in a presented value are present in an attribute value of syntax DirectoryString. It is identical to caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch except that case is not ignored. caseIgnoreListSubstringsMatch ( 2.5.13.12 NAME 'caseIgnoreListSubstringsMatch' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.58 ) This rule compares a presented substring with an attribute value which is a sequence of DirectoryStrings, but where the case of letters is not significant for comparison purposes. A presented value matches a stored value if and only if the presented value matches the string formed by concatenating the strings of the stored value. Matching is done according to the caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch rule except that none of the initial, final, or any values of the presented value match a substring of the concatenated string which spans more than one of the strings of the stored value. 9.3.4. Matching rules not defined in any referenced document caseIgnoreIA5SubstringsMatch ( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.109.114.3 NAME 'caseIgnoreIA5SubstringsMatch' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.58 ) This rules determines whether the initial, any and final substring elements in a presented value are present in an attribute value of syntax IA5 String without regard to the case of the letters in the strings. It is expected that this matching rule will be added to an update of RFC 2252. Smith Informational [Page 19]
