This memo provides information for the Internet community. This memo
does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. Distribution of
this memo is unlimited.

Abstract

This document is a revision to [RFC 1632]: A Revised Catalog of
Available X.500 Implementations and is based on the results of data
collection via a WWW home page that enabled implementors to submit
new or updated descriptions of currently available implementations of
X.500, including commercial products and openly available offerings.
[RFC 1632] is a revision of [RFC 1292]. We contacted each
contributor to [RFC 1632] to request an update and published the URL
of the WWW home page survey template in several mailing lists to
encourage the submission of new product descriptions.

This document contains detailed description of 31 X.500
implementations - DSAs, DUAs, and DUA interfaces.

1. Introduction

This document catalogs currently available implementations of X.500,
including commercial products and openly available offerings. For
the purposes of this survey, we classify X.500 products as,

DSA

A DSA is an OSI application process that provides the Directory
functionality,

DUA

A DUA is an OSI application process that represents a user in
accessing the Directory and uses the DAP to communicate with a
DSA, and

DUA Interface

A DUA Interface is an application process that represents a
user in accessing the Directory using either DAP but supporting
only a subset of the DAP functionality or a protocol different
from DAP to communicate with a DSA or DUA.

Section 2 of this document contains a listing of implementations
cross referenced by keyword. This list should aid in identifying
implementations that meet your criteria.

To compile this catalog, the IDS Working Group solicited input from
the X.500 community by publishing a URL for a set of on-line
description forms deployed on the WWW as a home page on an InterNIC
server. This URL

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997


(http://www.internic.net/projects/x500catalog/catalogtop.html) was
advertised on the following directory-related mailing lists:
iso@nic.ddn.mil, isode@nic.ddn.mil, osi-ds@cs.ucl.ac.uk,
ids@merit.edu, ietf-asid@umich.edu, mhs-ds@mercury.udev.cdc.com,
nadf-l@ema.org, and dssig@nist.gov.

Readers are encouraged to submit comments regarding both the forms
and content of this memo. New submissions are welcome. Please
direct input to the Integrated Directory Services (IDS) Working Group
(ietf-ids@umich.edu) or to the authors. IDS will produce new
versions of this document when a significant number of substantive
comments have been received or when significant updates and/or
modifications to X.500-related standards documents have been
ratified. This will be determined by the IDS chairpersons.

1.1 Purpose

The Internet has experienced a steady growth in X.500 piloting
activities. This document hopes to provide an easily accessible
source of information on X.500 implementations for those who wish to
consider X.500 technology for deploying a Directory service.

1.2 Scope

This document contains descriptions of both free and commercial X.500
implementations. It does not provide instructions on how to install,
run, or manage these implementations. The descriptions and indices
are provided to make the readers aware of available options and thus
enable more informed choices.

1.3 Disclaimer

Implementation descriptions were written by implementors and vendors,
and not by the editors. We worked with the description authors to
ensure uniformity and readability, but cannot guarantee the accuracy
or completeness of the descriptions, nor the stability of the
implementations.

1.4 Overview

Section 1 contains introductory information.

Section 2 contains a list of keywords, their definitions, a cross
reference of the X.500 implementations by these keywords and a table
containing implementor name, implementor abreviation, and the page of
this document on which the description begins for a particular
implementor.

Section 3 contains the X.500 implementation descriptions.

Section 4 has a list of references.

Section 6 lists the editors' addresses.

1.5 Acknowledgments

The creation of this catalog would not have been possible without the
efforts of the description authors and the members of the IDS Working
Group. Our special thanks to the editors of [RFC 1632], Linda
Millington and Sri Sataluri who graciously contributed the nroff
source file used to structure their version of the catalog.

2. Keywords

Keywords are abbreviated attributes of the X.500 implementations.
The list of keywords defined below was derived from the
implementation descriptions themselves. Implementations were indexed
by a keyword either as a result of: (1) explicit, not implied,
reference to a particular capability in the implementation
description text, or (2) input from the implementation description
author(s).

2.1 Keyword Definitions

This section contains keyword definitions. They have been organized
and grouped by functional category. The definitions are ordered first
alphabetically by keyword category, and second alphabetically by
implementation name within keyword category.

2.1.1 Availability

Available via FTP

Implementation is available using FTP.

NAME

Critical Angle X.500 Enabler

(CAIx500e)

ABSTRACT

The X.500 Enabler product allows an LDAP-only directory server to be
integrated into X.500 environments, by transparently converting X.500
DAP and DSP requests into LDAP requests.

The initial release scheduled for 4Q96 will allow for connections
from X.500-capable clients and servers to an LDAP-capable server, and
will support the following features:

* LDAP version 2, as defined in RFC 1777,

* all attributes defined for LDAPv2, with the exception of
certificates and revocation lists,

* X.500(1988) DAP and DSP protocols over TCP/IP (using RFC
1006),

* the following operations: Bind (with none or simple
credentials), Read, Compare, List, Search, Abandon, AddEntry,
ModifyEntry, RemoveEntry and ModifyRDN,

* the X.500(1993) critical extensions field, to aid in
deployments incorporating 1993 DSAs.

This release will be available for Solaris 2.5 (SPARC and Intel) and
Windows NT 4.0 Server (Intel).

The product is expected to enter a public beta test period in
September 1996. Beta test evaluation copies will be free (limited to
two copies per site) but will be set to expire in December 1996.

Released versions of X.500 Enabler will be licensed per server, and
will be distributed over the Internet.

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

The X.500 enabler accepts DAP and DSP connections.

It supports Bind (with none or simple credentials), Read, Compare,
List, Search, Abandon, AddEntry, ModifyEntry, RemoveEntry and
ModifyRDN.



Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 34]

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997


It supports the attributes and object classes defined in X.520 and
X.521.

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1993 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

The X.500 Enabler will accept connections from X.500(1993) DUAs and
DSAs.

It supports the X.511(1993) critical extension mechanism.

Non-critical protocol fields which do not map onto LDAPv2 are
ignored.

Attribute and object classes from X.520(1993) and X.521(1993) are
supported, including collective. Operational attributes from X.501
are supported, with the exception of subschema.

As LDAPv3-based servers become available, it is expected that the
X.500 Enabler will be upgraded to map more of the X.500(1993)
protocol onto LDAPv3.

CONFORMANCE WITH PROPOSED INTERNET STANDARDS

[RFC 1006] is the supported transport service.

The product supports the object classes and attributes defined in RFC
1274.

CONSISTENCE WITH INFORMATIONAL AND EXPERIMENTAL RFCs

[No information provided. -- Ed.]

INTEROPERABILITY

The X.500 Enabler is being tested with public-domain X.500 and LDAP
clients and servers, and with the various X.500 clients and servers
connected to the PARADISE project, such as from the ISODE Consortium.

Critical Angle intends to do interoperability testing with commercial
LDAP-only servers as they become available.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

This product will be used to connect LDAP-only servers, such as
University of Michigan's slapd, and many vendor's forthcoming
commercial LDAP server products, into the PARADISE project directory,
so that they can be accessed by LDAP and X.500 DUAs throughout the
project.



Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 35]

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997

ABSTRACT

The CXDUA is a Windows 3.1 DUA that has been derrived from a highly
portable and flexible Unix based Administrative Directory User Agent.
The goal of the original design was to support features to assist a
directory administrator in managing the directory. These features
include a highly portable GUI, Entry Templates, Entry Lists, Batch
Operations and Directory Control Functions.

Both the Windows and the Unix versions support strong authentication.

The Unix DUA has been used in various DMS and NSA pilot projects.

NAME

DC X500

Data Connection Ltd
100 Church Street
Enfield
Middlesex
EN2 6BQ
UK

ABSTRACT

DC X500 provides a truly scalable X.500 based enterprise directory
server with the necessary architectural flexibility to enable
integration with existing database and directory technologies.

From a pure X.500 standpoint, DC X500 provides a full function
state-of-the-art DSA implementation.

* Architected from scratch according to the 1993 X.500
standards (i.e. not a 1988 DSA with 1993 features grafted on)

* Support for all the key X.500 OSI protocols:

* Directory Access Protocol (DAP) for user access

* Directory System Protocol (DSP) for distributed DSA
comunications

* Directory Information Shadowing Protocol (DISP) to support
replication between servers to give improved performance
in a distributed network

* Support of the 1993 Basic Access Control and Simplified
Access Control models

* Support for the key Internet X.500 related standards:

* integrated Lightweight DAP (LDAP)for DUA access

* Madman MIBs for easy integration with SNMP

The DC X500 architecture is based on Data Connection's underlying
product architecture which has evolved since 1987 and includes:

* genuine multi-threaded implementation




Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 42]

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997


* true portability (the product is available on a range of
operating systems e.g Windows NT, AIX, HP-UX. OS/2 etc and it
is possible to port the core technology to any
hardware/software platform)

* secure service recording for operation tracking and billing

* support for system monitoring (both alarms and statistics)

Key product features include:

* Name resolution and integrated use of Search Indices based on
2-3 trees leads to high performance operation evaluation
(subsecond response times on million entry DSAs)

* Generic schema support based on 1993 concepts that allows
customers to tailor the schema to meet their precise data
structuing requirements

* System recycle time is minimised (e.g. DC X500 can be backed
up while running and search indices are dynamically updated),
helping achieve the goal of continuous (24x7) availability
and high reliability.

* No artificial software constraints are imposed resulting in a
truly scalable product - assuming the availability of the
necessary hardware DC X500 can be configured to support
millions of entries in a single DSA.

DC X500 is certified for used within the Paradise Pilot project. The
product has also undergone interoperability testing at the EuroSInet
interoperability workshops in Europe.

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

From 1988 X.519

9.2 Conformance by DSAs

NAME

DE

ABSTRACT

DE (Directory Enquiries) is intended to be a simple-to-use DUA
interface, suitable for the naive user, and suitable for running as a
public access dua. it will work on any terminal. The user is
presented with a series of (verbose) prompts asking for person's name
department organization country. There is extensive on-line help.
The matching algorithms are such that near matches are presented to
the user before less good matches.

There have been a few minor enhancements since the description in
[RFC 1632]. The power searching feature still sets DE apart from
most other DUAs - this allows a user to search for an entry even when
they do not know the name of the organisation in which the person
works - you still have to specify the country. DE also allows UFN
style searching. DE uses slightly different search algorithms
depending on whether it is accessing part of the Directory mastered
by a Quipu DSA - Quipu DSAs tend to use lots of replication and so
encourage searching. DE incorporates a QOS feature where it
maintains a database of past information availability and DSA
responsiveness. Translations exist into at least 4 different
languages.

DE runs over ISODE DAP and University of Michigan LDAP. There is a
version of DE, called DOS-DE, which has been ported to DOS, and this
uses LDAP.

DE was funded by the COSINE PARADISE project, and DE is used as the
PARADISE public access dua. You can test the software by telnet to
directory.ja.net and logging in as dua -- no password required.

DSP, DISP and DOP access over OSI and TCP/IP (using [RFC
1006]) protocols.

* Indexed database (DIB) to support high-performance searching
and sophisticated matching including approximate match.

* A DIB based on the 1993 edition Extended Information Models.

* Support for chaining and referrals in support of a
distributed DIB

* Support for the 1993 edition Basic Access Control scheme.

* Configurable schema based on the 1993 edition (including
attributes, object classes, structure rules, name forms).

* Support for 1993 edition Shadowing using the DISP and DOP
protocol, including both incremental and on-change features
for high performance.

* Remote management to control DSAs and log significant events.

* Support for the LDAP protocols using the InfoBroker Server
product across either TCP/IP or DECnet transport protocols.

* A Look-up Daemon that accepts requests from Web Browsers,
allowing access to the directory from any web browser.

* Both X/OPEN XDS/XOM and LDAP APIs.

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997


* An award winning documentation set.

The Digital X.500 Administration Facility, X.500 Information Manager
and InfoBroker Client products provide MS-Windows, Motif and command
line interfaces to access and manage the information stored in the
X.500 directory, including:

* Support for different ways of accessing the directory, either
by browsing or searching based on an extensible set of
filters.

* Support for bulk load, unload and reload of entries.

* Driven off the same configurable schema information as the
DSA allowing extensibility of window layouts and text to
support customer-defined object classes and attributes.

The Synchronizer-500 is an X.500 DUA which:

* Enables bi-directional synchronization between X.500 and
virtually ANY other non-X.500 directory facilitating common
management.

* Maps incoming data into X.500 using flexible configuration
files

* Facilitates creation of a multivendor electronic mail
database, creating addresses in the appropriate syntax for
any mail system.

* Provides uniqueness checking on mnemonic O/R addresses,
preventing address duplication

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

The Digital X.500 Directory Services products are based on the 1993
edition standard. They are compatible with, and interwork with, 1988

NAME

DIR.X (tm) V3.1 Siemens Nixdorf Informationssysteme AG

ABSTRACT

DIR.X V3.1 is Siemens Nixdorf's Directory Service product compliant
with the 1988 ITU-T X.500 recommendations. Siemens Nixdorf has
supplied its Directory Service product as the GDS (Global Directory
Service) component to OSF DCE. However, DIR.X V3.1 has a number of
features and enhancements which are not available in the GDS
component of OSF DCE.

DIR.X V3.1 is a distributed, replicated Directory Service. It
consists of DSA, DUA and a tools package including comfortable
administration and management utilities. DIR.X implements the
protocol stack ranging from LDAP, DAP, DSP over ACSE, ROSE,
Presentation, Session down to [RFC 1006]. On transport layer it
supports TCP/IP and OSI LAN/WAN protocols.

Data stored by DIR.X can be accessed via

* the MS-Windows user interfaces DIR.D/ORG.D which are
available as separate products from Siemens Nixdorf

* any third-party LDAP or DAP browser

* directory applications using the standardized X/Open XDS/XOM
APIs (Directory Service / OSI Abstract Data Manipulation).
The Siemens Nixdorf implementation was the first to gain
XPG4-certification.

* a command-line administration program

* a menu-driven administration program

* WWW

* a shell interface

* the Query-by-mail interface of SNI's directory
synchronization product DIR.X-SYNC

DIR.X enables

* The storage of globally-unique, tree-like name structures
which can be mapped onto organizations.




Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 63]

NAME

DIR.X-SYNC (tm) V2.0 Siemens Nixdorf Informationssysteme AG

ABSTRACT

DIR.X-SYNC V2.0 enables the synchronization of existing e-mail
address directories in the X.500-based DIR.X directory service. The
standard DIR.X, DIR.X-SYNC and DIR.D (all available from Siemens
Nixdorf) products are the foundations on which the corporate
directory solutions can be tailored to meet the customer's needs. The
corporate directory then becomes the universal information system
within the company.

The user can access corporate directory information in different
ways:

* Using DIR.D, SNI's Windows client for the X.500 service, PC
users can gain easy access to the DIR.X server containing the
corporate directory data. The data found can be transferred
to other applications by means of DDE, drag and drop or cut
and paste. (See DIR.D V2.6 for further information).

* Query by mail: Authorized users can access data stored in the
central or distributed directory system over their own mail
system. DIR.X-SYNC retrieves the inquiry transmitted by mail
and directs it on to the X.500 service. The search results
are then delivered back to the user by mail. Using a WWW
interface based on TCL scripts

Query by mail does not require additional software on the end system.
Each mail system connected to the X.400 backbone (e.g. MS-Mail,
cc:Mail etc.) can use this function. DIR.X-SYNC currently supports
the address formats of the following e-mail systems:

* MAIL.X-OD V2.3

* MAIL.2000 V1.2, AKOM

* MS-Mail

* cc:Mail

* Intelligent Messaging Mail (Banyan)







Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 74]

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997


The standardized ISO-10021 interface for X.400 addresses is
supported, enabling need for extension. This means that any type of
system capable of generating this format (e.g. WordPerfect, Lotus
Notes) can be connected. Address acknowledgment is carried out in ISO
format.

Functions for the administrator:

* Export: Addresses can be exported from local directories.
They are delivered as mail messages in ASCII format to the
DIR.X-SYNC server.

* Upload: The upload server stores the exported local addresses
in DIR.X as globally valid X.400 addresses.

* Query by Mail: DIR.X-SYNC enables mail members to send a
search to the DIR.X-SYNC server by e-mail. Using this
function, authorized administrators of the synchronized
directories can acquire copies of the corporate directory
data.

* Administration of the DIR.X-SYNC server with an
administration tool which can be used via command line or a
command file.

Other features include:

* Replication and distribution: In addition to the central
solution with a single corporate directory server, DIR.X-SYNC
also supports replicated or distributed data storage in
DIR.X-SYNC server.

* Authentication/Authorization: To prevent unauthorized use of
the corporate directory system, the O/R addresses of the
authorized administrators and users are configured by the
DIR.X-SYNC administrator. When a query by mail or an update
arrives, the sender address is compared with this address.

* Logging: In the case of error, e.g. incorrect file format,
the sender (and the administrator configurable) are informed
of the fault by mail. At the same time, the error message is
saved in a log file for the DIR.X-SYNC administrator. In
addition, a 'history file' enables the monitoring of the
uploads that have run or are currently running

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

DIR.X-SYNC is a directory application.

NAME

Forum LOOK'UP (tm)

Telis Systemes & Communications

ABSTRACT

Forum LOOK'UP (tm) is a Corporate directory solution based on the
X.500 recommendations. It includes:

* a Directory System Agent (DSA),

* Directory User Agents (DUAs).

* local network connections

* remote workstation access

* a WEB and videotex access

* data updating tools

* a directory editing tool

Forum LOOK'UP is a product based on PIZARRO, the research prototype
developed at INRIA by Christian Huitema's team, and commercialized by
Telis, a member of the France Telecom group.

Characteristics of the DSA are:

* The DAP and DSP protocols are provided conformant with X.500
(88).

* The DIB is maintained in ASN.1 encoded format in the Unix
file system.

* Utilities are provided to load and dump the DIB from and to
ASCII text files.

* As an option, an ORACLE V7 database can also be used.

* The DIT structure is held in main memory. Frequently used
attributes may be held in inverted tables in memory to speed
up searches.

* Knowledge management: knowledge on managed domains is stored
in Forum LOOK'UP specific attributes of the DSA entries.



Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 80]

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997


* Schema: The X.500 (88), X.400 (88) and most of the Cosine and
Internet Schema are supported. Object class and attribute
definitions are enforced. Users may define their own.

* Simple authentication is provided strong authentication and
signed operations have been tested operationally through
Telis's participation in PASSWORD, a VALUE project with aim
to pilot a European security infrastructure for network
applications.

* Access control : the DSA offers a mechanism defined by Telis
that is functionally equivalent to a profile of the X500 '93
access control mechanism. The mechanism is based on the
notion of administrative domains (autonomous and semi-
autonomous). A domain defines the user groups (categories)
and their access rights (consult, modify) to specified
attribute types. The access rights are defined in
prescriptive and entry ACI attributes.

* Phonetic searches : administrators may specify a language
(English, French, ...) for a subtree of the DIT. Approximate
(phonetic) searches will then be carried out in the given
language. The software loads a rule database to which new
languages and new rules may be added easily.

* Management: a Forum LOOK'UP DSA object has been defined to
allow operational parameters of the DSA to be managed via
DAP. Forum LOOK'UP conforms to X.500 (88) as specified in
poaragraph 9 of X.519 Administration tools are provided :

* to generate usage statistics automatically and distribute
these by mail to administrators

* to replicate subtrees of the DIT to other FORUM LOOK'UP
DSAs and automatically update shadow copies,

* to extract hardcopy listings from the database in an Excel
compatible format for 'paper' directories, all the
management tasks are performed through a GUI (X/Motif).

* The GUI includes a 'dashboard' for monitoring of servers and
the hardware they are installed on.

* The DUAs include a graphical directory browser with powerful
search functionality for PCs and Macintosh.

Bug reports can be sent to our support team via electronic mail.

CAVEATS AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

* The DIT structure and inverted attribute tables are stored in
main memory.

* The recommended main memory size for a DSA is 1kb per node,
i.e., 10 Mb for a database of 10,000 objects.

* The current recommended maximum for the proprietary database
(based on the Unix file system) is a database size of the order
of 100,000 objects.

* For a larger database one unique server (up to 300,000 objects),
the use of the Oracle database is recommended



Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 82]

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997


* Of the selected attribute types defined in X.500 (88), the
searchGuide attribute is not supported

* neither are the following attributes from the Cosine and
Internet Schema [RFC 1274]: OtherMailbox, MailPreferenceOption
and the various quality attributes.

INTERNETWORKING ENVIRONMENT

Forum LOOK'UP includes a transport stack for TP0 with TCP/IP [RFC
1006] and X.25. The stack has been ported to SunNet OSI for TP4 with
CLNP.

DUAs on a LAN (Novell Netware, Microsoft Lan Manager, IBM Lan Server)
can access the DSA without the need for IP on every Workstation. A
module (called SOLO server) available on Novell, OS/2 and UNIX allows
to have an IP or X.25 stack only on the file server. It is in charge
of forwarding the request to a DSA.

A direct access (DUA / DSA) through IP, X.25, PSTN or ISDN is also
available.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

Forum LOOK'UP can easily be ported to any UNIX machine.

It currently runs on: Sun Solaris and Hewlett Packard.

A port on IBM AIX is to be completed.

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS

The Forum LOOK'UP server is portable to any UNIX-like operating
system. X/Motif is the interface used for management.

The DUAs are available on Windows and Macintosh.

ORACLE V7 can be used as a database (option).

NAME

FX*500

Firefox International Limited

ABSTRACT

FX*500 is a core component of Firefoxs product suite for mail,
messaging and directories.

FX*500 provides a Directory System Agent (DSA) which adheres to the
latest 1993 X.500 standards.

FX*500 may be used in conjunction with the Firefox FX*400 messaging
products or may be combined with a range of Directory User Agent and
Gateway products in order to satisfy a broad range of directory
requirements.

FX*500 affords unique integration opportunities with Novell's NetWare
Directory Service (NDS) by offering the option of true dynamic
directory integration between NDS and X.500.

FX*500 provides support for key features of the X.500 1993 standard
while continuing to support interworking with 1988 based directory
user agents and system agents. The main 1993 features of X.500
supported by FX*500 are:

* Basic Access Control

* The 1993 DSA Information Model

* Replication and Shadowing

In summary, FX*500 supports:

* 1988 and 1993 X.500 Directory Access Protocol (DAP)

* 1988 and 1993 X.500 Directory System Protocol (DSP)

* 1993 X.500 Directory Information Shadowing Protocol (DISP)

* 1993 Basic (or Simplified) Access Control

* the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), as defined
by [RFC 1777]





Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 85]

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997


* configuration of knowledge information for distributed
operation using 1993 operational attributes

* local management services, including a knowledge
configuration application and extensive diagnostic facilities

* an extended set of management applications

* operation in a wide variety of network environments including
connectivity over X.25, TCP/IP [RFC 1006] and OSI LANs.

* an application developer's toolkit

The optional application developer's toolkit includes:

* the X/Open Directory Services (XDS) API to support directory
user agent applications

* a Gateway (G-XDS) API which is based on a simplified version
of the XDS API syntax and allows developers to implement
gateways to existing/ proprietary directory databases

* a Network Management Interface (NMI) to support management
applications and integration with management services.

FX*500 is delivered with a schema defined to support the Common Use
and MHS (X.402) Schemas defined by UK GOSIP V4. The subschema for
FX*500 can be modified by the customer and updated dynamically.

FX*500 provides for search optimisation by supporting keyed search
whereby specific attributes can be identified as 'keyed' through
local configuration data. This optimisation avoids the need to do a
'brute force' search which requires a traversal of all the nodes of a
subtree. Approximate match search filters are also supported by using
a phonetic search based on the 'Soundex' algorithm.

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

FX*500 meets both the static and dynamic requirements implied by
section 9.2 of X.519 1988.

From section 9.2 of X.519 1988 regarding DSA conformance:

* FX*500 supports both the directoryAccessAC and
directorySystemAC application contexts.

NAME

ISODE Consortium Release 3.0 X.500(1993) Directory ISODE Consortium
Ltd.

ABSTRACT

This implementation is a source release of an X.500(1993) Directory
System Agent (DSA). It has been designed an implemented as an X.500
1993 DSA not as a 1988 DSA with '93 extensions. Emphasis has been
placed on providing support for a flexible information model, access
control, X.509 security features, and standard replication.

The 1993 DSA offers a strong technical foundation on which to build
an information and messaging infrastructure that relies on robust and
scalable directory services. The implementation of this DSA
incorporates the experience gained through the development, support,
and maintenance of the earlier QUIPU, as well as operational
experience and standards support.

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

The DSA is aligned to the 1988 ISO IS and the NIST OIW Directory
Implementors Guide Version 1. X.500(1993) features such as
replication, access control, as well as X.509 certification are also
available. Interoperability testing with other DSAs has been
performed.

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1993 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

Please contact the ISODE Consortium if you wish to obtain our
protocol information conformance statements. PICS may also be

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

The U-M LDAP distribution is a complete implementation of the LDAP
protocol. The LDAP protocol does not support access to all X.500
features and operations. The operations supported are bind, search,
compare, add, delete, modify, modify RDN, and abandon. Note that
read and list operations can be emulated using the search operation.
Size and time limits may be specified, as may alias dereferencing and
searching, but all X.500 service controls are not supported.

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1993 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

Since the LDAP protocol itself has not yet been updated to support
any 1993-specific X.500 features, this implementation does support
any 1993 features yet either.

CONFORMANCE WITH PROPOSED INTERNET STANDARDS

Believed to be compliant with:

[RFC 1274], [RFC 1777], [RFC 1778], [RFC 1779], [RFC 1781]

CONSISTENCE WITH INFORMATIONAL AND EXPERIMENTAL RFCs

Includes an implementation of the LDAP API, as defined in [RFC 1823].
Search filters used within UM-LDAP comply with [RFC 1558].

INTEROPERABILITY

The current implementation of the X.500-backended LDAP server (ldapd)
is known to work with ISODE-based DAP libraries and the QUIPU DSA.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

DUA connectivity should be possible to all pilots.



Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 109]

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997


BUGS

Bug reports should be sent to bug-ldap@umich.edu.

CAVEATS AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

None, aside from those mentioned above under completeness.

INTERNETWORKING ENVIRONMENT

LDAP clients use TCP to communicate with the LDAP server. The LDAP
server normally uses [RFC 1006] with TCP/IP to communicate with the
DSA, though any other transport mechanism for DSA communication
supported by ISODE should be possible.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

The complete UM-LDAP package has been ported to a wide variety of
UNIX systems, including: Sun3 and SPARCs running SunOS 4.1.x or
Solaris 2.x, DECStations running Ultrix 4.3, HP 9000 series running
HP-UX 9.05, IBM RS6000 running AIX 3.2.5, PCs running SCO, FreeBSD,
NetBSD, or LINUX, DEC Alphas running OSF/1, and NeXTStatios running
NeXTSTEP 3.2. The complete package has also been ported to VMS. In
addition, the LDAP client libraries and some client programs have
been ported to Apple Macintosh and PCs running MSDOS or Windows.

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS

The complete UM-LDAP package has been ported to a wide variety of
UNIX systems, including: SunOS 4.1.x, Solaris 2.x, Ultrix 4.3, HP-UX
9.05, AIX 3.2.5, SCO, FreeBSD, NetBSD, LINUX, OSF/1, and NeXTSTEP
3.2. It has also been ported to VMS. In addition, the LDAP client
libraries and some clients have been ported to Macintosh (System 7),
MSDOS (some TCP/IP stacks), and Microsoft Windows 3.1, 95, and NT.

NAME

maX.500 :: Macintosh DUA Interface

University of Michigan

ABSTRACT

maX.500 is a Directory User Agent (client) for Apple Macintosh. It
is widely used within Paradise and other Internet X.500 pilots.
maX.500 supports searching, browsing, and modifying directory
entries. Display of textual information, playing of audio, and
viewing of both black-and-white (fax) and color (JPEG) images are
supported. Communication with directory servers is via the
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) over TCP/IP. maX.500
works both with standalone LDAP directory servers (such as slapd) and
with X.500-backended LDAP servers (such as ldapd).

maX.500 is a native Macintosh application, and has a friendly
interface. It requires System Software version 6.0.5 or later and
Apple's MacTCP or Open Transport TCP/IP networking. The current
version of maX.500 is 2.0.2, although version 2.1 is in beta test.

The latest information about maX.500 can always be found on the
maX.500 Home Page at this URL:
http://www.umich.edu/~rsug/ldap/max500/

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

maX.500 works over LDAP, and is subject to LDAP's limitations. The
bind, search, compare, add, delete, abandon, modify, and modifyrdn
operations are all used by maX.500. Size and time limits may be
specified, as may alias dereferencing control.

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1993 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

maX.500 currently uses LDAP as defined in [RFC 1777], which does not
support any 1993-specific X.500 features.

CONFORMANCE WITH PROPOSED INTERNET STANDARDS

Believed to be compliant with:

[RFC 1274], [RFC 1777], [RFC 1778], [RFC 1779], [RFC 1781]







Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 112]

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997


CONSISTENCE WITH INFORMATIONAL AND EXPERIMENTAL RFCs

Search filters comply with [RFC 1558].

Uses the LDAP API, as defined in [RFC 1823].

INTEROPERABILITY

maX.500 is known to work with the U-M LDAP servers (ldapd and slapd).
It has also been tested with other commerical LDAP servers, such as
Control Data's server. maX.500 has been used with a wide variety of
DSAs (always through an LDAP server).

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

DUA connectivity should be possible to all pilots.

BUGS

Bug reports should be sent to max500-bugs@umich.edu.

CAVEATS AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

maX.500 does not support modification of 'photo' (fax), 'jpegPhoto',
or 'audio' attributes. Versions of maX.500 before 2.1 did not
support a fully functional browse facility.

INTERNETWORKING ENVIRONMENT

maX.500 is an LDAP client, and as such is uses TCP to communicate
with the LDAP server. Apple's MacTCP control panel or Open Transport
TCP/IP networking is required.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

maX.500 runs on Apple Macintosh Plus or later Macintosh computers,
including PowerMacs. It requires 600K of free RAM.

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS

maX.500 requires Apple System Software 6.0.5 or later (System 7
preferred) and MacTCP 1.1 or later (2.0.6 preferred). maX.500 2.1,
which is currently in beta test, will run natively on the PowerMac
and use the native Open Transport networking interface if it is
installed.

NAME

NonStop Directory Services (NSDS)
Tandem Computers, Inc.

ABSTRACT

The Tandem NonStop Directory Services (NSDS) product provides a
distributed open directory service on Tandem platforms. It is an
industrial strength implementation incorporating the Tandem product
fundementals of resilience, linear extensibility, fault-tolerance, and
continuous availability. NSDS runs on the NonStop Kernel Guardian
Personality which includes support for Tandem system characteristics
such as data integrity, process persistence, and server classes. NSDS
supports access over X.25 WAN, LAN and TCP/IP networks.

NSDS is a port of OSF's DCE GDS Reference Implementation, with Tandem
enhancements including 1993 X.500 Simplified Access Control. Tandem
server class management provides fault events, tracing, accounting and
configuration services for NSDS. TM/MP (Transaction Management) is
used to protect all file operations that affect the integrity of the
directory entries in the DIB.

Major Features Include:

* X/Open Directory Services (XDS) API and X/Open Object
Management (XOM) interface in conformance with X/Open CAE
Specifications, and an additional Tandem extension package

* 1988 Edition X.500 Conformant DAP and DSP, capable of inter-
operating with 1993 Edition DUA or DSA implementations

* Simplified Access Control as specified in the 1993 edition of
the X.500 standard.

* Unprotected Simple Authentication (name and password in
clear)

* Character set support for T61 Printables, IA5 and Teletex
Strings

* The DSA-SC server class performs the functions of a DSA.
Multiple processes are used for fault tolerance and load
balancing.

* The DUA-ACCESS server class handles communications between
local applications and remote DSA's using DAP across an OSI
stack.



Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 121]

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997


* The DSA-ACCESS server class handles communications from
remote DUAs or DSAs to the DSA-SC server class using the
Tandem OSI stack implementation which includes [RFC 1006]
support for TCP/IP networks.

* The DSA-CHAIN server class handles chaining communications
between the DSA-SC server class and remote DSAs.

* NSDS GUI Viewer supports administration/management of an NSDS
DIB on a PC Windows workstation. The NSDS GUI Viewer is
supported by a persistent server process on the Tandem
NonStop Kernel. The GUI Viewer allows a directory entry and
a complete set of attributes and values to be inserted
anywhere in the directory tree (DIT), to be deleted or
changed, read or searched based on distinguished name
components, with or without wild-card.

* NSDS SCRIPTOR allows customers to explore features of the XDS
programmatic interface in advance of writing their XOM/XDS
application. NSDS SCRIPTOR is a menu-driven batch interface
to XDS functions.

* A BulkUnload/BulkLoad utility allows a branch of the DIB to
be dumped to an editable flat file and restored from that
file. The flat file can be modified before being bulk-loaded
into a DIB which may conform to a different schema
definition.

* Support for the LDAP protocol.

* Messaging-Based Directory Query (MDQ) provides a text-based
query interface to the directory from an X.400 messaging
system, such as Tandem OSI/MHS, via the XAPIA compliant GPI
interface.

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

NSDS complies with the '88 CCITT X.500 and ISO 9594 standard, and
part of '93 X.500 standard.

NAME

PMDF-X500

from:

Innosoft International, Inc. 1050 East Garvey Ave. South West
Covina, California 91790

Phone: +1 818-919-3600 email: sales@innosoft.com

ABSTRACT

PMDF-X500 is Innosoft's implementation of the X.500 standards for
Directory Services. PMDF-X500 is based upon the ISODE Consortium
code-base. The core of PMDF-X500 is the Directory System Agent (DSA)
server. This server provides directory information to Directory User
Agents (DUA) using either OSI or TCP/IP networking protocols. Since
PMDF-X500 is based on a widely used implementation, it interoperates
particularly well with a whole host of X.500-based products from other
sources.

In order to facilitate initial loading of directory data as well as
ongoing coordination with other directory services, PMDF-X500 includes
tools to import from and export directory information to Entry
Description File (EDF) files. EDF files are flat text files.
PMDF-X500 provides directory coordination functions using EDF files
for the following directories:

* X.500 DSAs supporting LDAP access

* cc:Mail

* Digital's DDS

* GroupWise

* Microsoft Mail

* PMDF generic databases

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

OSI directory services as specified in CCITT X.500 Recommendations
and ISO 9594 use the Directory Access Protocol (DAP) and the
Directory System Protocol (DSP).





Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 138]

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997


COMPLIANCE with X.500-1993 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

PMDF-X500 does not yet support the 1993 changes to the X.500
standard. Support for the 1993 X.500 recommendations is planned for
a future release of PMDF-X500.

CONFORMANCE WITH PROPOSED INTERNET STANDARDS

PMDF-X500 supports DAP and DSP accesses using Internet protocols as
specified in [RFC 1006]. In addition, the Internet community has
proposed two lightweight alternatives to DAP called Lightweight
Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), which is specified in [RFC 1777],
and Connectionless Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (CLDAP),
which is specified in [RFC 1798]. LDAP and CLDAP, which are currently
specified to run over TCP/IP, are much simpler protocols than DAP and
were designed to reduce the cost of entry associated with using X.500
protocols in client applications. PMDF-X500 includes both LDAP and
CLDAP servers.

The LDAP server accesses X.500 directory information using DAP to
communicate with X.500 DSAs. PMDF-X500 provides an LDAP server which
translates LDAP requests into DAP requests to communicate with X.500
DSAs. CLDAP defines a very low overhead method for accessing X.500
directory information. CLDAP is suitable for providing access to
information that does not require access controls.

CONSISTENCE WITH INFORMATIONAL AND EXPERIMENTAL RFCs

[No information provided. -- Ed.]

INTEROPERABILITY

PMDF-X500 interoperates with a large number of DUAs and DSAs. This is
demonstated by the fact that PMDF-X500 is DSA used by several Internet
White Pages Project participants. PMDF-X500 DSA interoperability
includes at least all of the DSA that are used in the White Pages
Project.

PMDF-X500 is delivered with several DUAs and in addition is know to
support the DUAs from Unisys and Digital Equipment Corporation as well
as the publically available DUAs MaX500, Cello, Swix, and the NASA
DUA.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

PMDF-X500 is used by several sites that are participants of the
Internet White Pages Project include the Innosoft DSA.

CAVEATS AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

[No information provided. -- Ed.]

INTERNETWORKING ENVIRONMENT

DAP and DSP are layered on top of the OSI protocol suite. PMDF-X500
supports this protocol suite over multiple network transports. For a
pure OSI protocol stack, DECnet/OSI can be used to provide the lower
layers of the stack. In addition, PMDF-X500 supports running OSI upper
layer protocols over a TCP/IP transport in accordance with [RFC 1006].
It is important to note that while [RFC 1006] specifies TCP/IP as a
transport, all of the OSI upper layer protocols are always used with
DAP and DSP.

NAME

waX.500

University of Michigan

ABSTRACT

waX.500 :: Windows Access to X.500

waX.500 is a (currently 16-bit) DUA that run on Microsoft Windows
(3.1, Win95, & WinNT). It uses libldap.dll which uses the winsock
(v1.1) interface. It works on any vendors tcp/ip stack that I've
seen so far (some configuration may be required).

waX.500 was developed by the University of Michigan for use by its
faculty, staff and students. UM's online directory is an X.500
directory containing 50,000+ entries.

I keep the following Web page up to date with respect to latest
release, etc.:

NAME

X500-DS

X500-DUA

Bull S.A.

ABSTRACT

X500-DS and X500-DUA are integral part of the large Bull OSI offer.
Although based on the DCE/GDS (Distributed Computing
Environment/Global Directory Service) of OSF, those two products may
be installed and used without the DCE environment. Some enhancements
have been added for the user and the management facilities. X500-DS is
designed to implement both the DUA and the DSA functions, whilst
X500-DUA only provides the DUA functions.

The X500-DUA package contains:

* The standards APIs XOM (X/Open OSI-Abstract-Data Manipulation
API) and XDS (X/Open Directory Service API) for the
development of portable applications,

* A core DUA to translate all user's requests (bind, read,
list, compare, modify, modifyRDN, search, add, remove, unbind
...) into the DAP protocol used for communication with
distant DSAs,

* The OSI standard high layers (ASN.1, ROSE, ACSE, Presentation
and Session) for communication with the distant DSAs. The
interface with the low layers is XTI. [RFC 1006] is supported
under XTI or the OSI Session,

* A DUA Cache to improve performances when accessing remote
DSAs,

* A powerful management application facilitating the
configuration of the product and controlling the operations,
logs and traces,

* A user application for the manipulations of the database
entries,

* A generic tool to load and unload ASCII and binary files
in/from distributed DSAs,





Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 157]

RFC 2116 X.500 Implementations Catalog-96 April 1997


* The support of the LDAP [RFC 1777] thanks to an LDAP Server,

* A DUA Server that allows to use A-Window-To-Directory (refer
to this DUA product description) on a PC.

The X500-DS package contains:

* All components of the X500-DUA,

* A core DSA to process all requests received from distant DUAs
through DAP protocol or from distant DSAs through DSP
protocol,

* The support of the referral, chained and multi-casting modes
of operation, access control lists and management of
knowledge information (for distribution, shadows and copies
of sub-trees),

* The support of the simple authentication and of the DCE
authentication,

* A management application for managing the schema information
(creation, deletion and modification of object classes and of
attribute types, management of the rules of the DIT).

* A C-ISAM database that is specially designed for high
performances: e.g. less than 10 ms to read an entry on an
Escala at the XOM/XDS interface.

These two products are easely installed, configured and administered
thanks to the System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) screens of AIX.

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1988 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

Compliant with EWOS and OIW Agreements

Consists of both DUA and DSA implementation according to the '88
CCITT X.500 and ISO 9594 standard. The X/Open standard XDS and XOM
interface libraries are also provided. When the product is installed
with the DCE environment, XDS and XOM interfaces are also used to
access DCE/CDS (Local Cell Directory Service) transparently. A GDA
(Global Directory Agent) serves then as the gateway between the DCE
CDS and GDS.

COMPLIANCE with X.500-1993 (applicable only for DSAs and DUAs)

[New description field -- Ed.]




Apple & Rossen Informational [Page 158]

CONFORMANCE WITH PROPOSED INTERNET STANDARDS

Supports [RFC 1277], [RFC 1777].

CONSISTENCE WITH INFORMATIONAL AND EXPERIMENTAL RFCs

[No information provided--Ed.]

INTEROPERABILITY

This implementation of DAP and DSP can interoperate with other X.500
implementations from other Cebit and EUROSINET demo participants
including IBM, HP, ICL, Siemens-Nixdorf, SUN, Marben, NEXOR, etc. It
also interoperates with ISODE QUIPU.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

[No information provided--Ed.]

BUGS

Bull S.A. provides complete software maintenance with the products.

CAVEATS AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

[No information provided--Ed.]

INTERNETWORKING ENVIRONMENT

OSI TP4 with CLNP (WAN - LAN)

OSI TP0, 2 & 4 with X.25 (WAN)

[RFC 1006] with TCP/IP

Either BSD sockets or XTI can be used to access the transports.

Through XTI, both OSI and TCP/IP protocols are possible on the same
machine, thus permitting to build a Directory Service distributed on
OSI and TCP/IP networks.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

DPX/20, Escala SMP

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS
