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.

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.

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


MUST (
cn $ objectClass $ sn
)
MAY (
description $ destinationIndicator $ facsimileTelephoneNumber $

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.

( 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.

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.
