	     A Catalog of Available X.500 Implementations

Status of this Memo

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

Abstract

   The goal of this document is	to provide information regarding the
   availability	and capability of implementations of X.500.  Comments
   and critiques of this document, and new or updated descriptions of
   X.500 implementations are welcome.  Send them to the	Directory
   Information Services	Infrastructure (DISI) Working Group
   (disi@merit.edu) or to the editors.

1.  Introduction

   This	document catalogs currently available implementations of X.500,
   including commercial	products and openly available offerings.  It
   contains descriptions of Directory System Agents (DSA), Directory
   User	Agents (DUA), and DUA client applications.  The	latter can
   include such	applications as	browsers, DSA management tools,	or
   lightweight DUAs that employ	an application-level protocol to
   communicate with a DUA (which then in turn communicates with	a DSA)
   to support user service.  Section 2 of this document	contains a
   listing of implementations cross referenced by keyword.  This list
   will	aid in identifying particular implementations that meet	your
   criteria.

   To compile this catalog, the	DISI Working Group solicited input from
   the X.500 community by surveying several Internet mailing lists,
   including: iso@nic.ddn.mil, isode@nic.ddn.mil, osi-ds@cs.ucl.ac.uk,
   and disi@merit.edu.

   Readers are encouraged to submit comments regarding both the	form and
   content  of	this  memo.  New submissions are always	welcome.  Please
   direct input	to the parties as described in the Status of  this  Memo
   section.  DISI will produce new versions of this document when a suf-
   ficient number of changes have been received.  This	will  be  deter-
   mined subjectively by the DISI chairperson.

1.1  Purpose

   The growth of existing X.500	pilot activities (e.g.,	White Pages
   Pilot Project) and the advent of new	pilots (e.g., ARRNet Directory
   Services Project, NIST/GSA Pilot Project) are signals that X.500 is a
   viable directory service mechanism for the Internet community.  A
   goal	of DISI	is to enable the continued growth of X.500 by lowering
   the lack-of-information barrier.  This document takes one step toward
   that	goal by	providing an easily accessible source of information on
   X.500 implementations.

1.2  Scope

   This	document contains descriptions of either commercially or freely
   available X.500 implementations.  It	does not provide instructions on
   how to install, run,	or manage these	implementations.  Because the
   needs and computing environments of each organization differ	vastly,
   no recommendations are given.  The descriptions and indices are
   provided to make the	readers	aware of existing options and to enable
   more	informed choices.

1.3 Disclaimer

   Implementation descriptions were written by implementors and	vendors,
   and not by the members of DISI.  Although DISI has worked with the
   description authors to ensure readability, no guarantees can	be made
   regarding the validity of descriptions or the value of said
   implementations.  Caveat emptor.

1.4  Overview

   Section 1 contains introductory information.

   Section 2 contains a	list of	keywords, their	definitions, and a cross
   reference of	the X.500 implementations by these keywords.

   Section 3 contains the X.500	implementation descriptions.

   Section 4 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 DISI
   Working Group.  The editors thank you for your hard work and
   constructive	feedback.  A special thanks is also extended to	the
   members of the NOCTools Working Group.  The "Network	Management Tool
   Catalog" (RFC-1147) served as a valuable example.  Bob Stine	and Bob
   Enger made key suggestions that enabled us to learn from their
   experiences.

   The efforts of the editors were sponsored by	Defense	Advanced
   Research Projects Agency Contract Number DACA76-89-D-0002 (Field
   Operational X.500 Project), and U. S. Department of Energy Contract
   Number DE-AC03-76SF00098.

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.

ABSTRACT

   Alliance OSI	includes XDS (API), DUA, DSA and DIB all as separate
   components.

   Touch's X.500 products have been designed for complete portability to
   any operating system	or hardware environment.  The protocols	include
   DAP and DSP of the OSI X.500	specification along with the required
   XDS,	DUA, DSA and DIB components.  In addition to X.500, Touch sup-
   plies other OSI protocol layers including: ROSE, ACSE, Presentation,
   Session and any of the OSI lower layers (Transport, Network along
   with	RFC-1006).  Touch also supplies	other application layer	proto-
   cols	such as	X.400, FTAM, CMIP (and general network management), etc.

   The Alliance	OSI X.500 is compliant with the	CCITT X.500 1988 Recom-
   mendations. The ROSE/ACSE/Presentation/Session stack	can be option-
   ally	provided by Touch.

   The DUA may represent a single user,	or may represent a group of
   users.  It may be attached to a given DSA within the	same system but
   is also capable of invoking operations in Touch's or	any other
   vendor's compliant DSA on a remote system.  The binding operation
   requires the	user to	give a distinguished name and password in order
   for the Directory to	identify the user.  Once an association	is esta-
   blished the user may	invoke the following operations: READ, COMPARE,
   ABANDON, LIST, SEARCH, ADD_ENTRY, REMOVE_ENTRY, MODIFY_ENTRY,
   MODIFY_RDN.

   Due to the fact that	access to the physical disk is in most	cases  a
   blocking  operation	(synchronous)  Touch  has separated the	database
   processing (I/O process) from the DSA protocol entity.  This	 separa-
   tion	allows the DSA entity to continue processing during the	frequent
   database accesses from the DSA. The DSA supports  all  the  Directory
   operations  as specified in the CCITT X.500 specification.  Chaining,
   Referral and	Multicasting are provided and supported	in the	Alliance
   OSI	DSA.   The DSA supports	all the	service	control	options	included
   in the operation command arguments.	Filtering  conditions  are  sup-
   ported via the FILTER in the	SEARCH operation.

   The Alliance	OSI X.500 product supports all the NIST	defined	manda-
   tory	X.500 and X.400	object classes and attributes.

   Alliance OSI	X.500 supports all the mandatory Directory attribute
   types (and their associated abstract	syntaxes) in the NIST Directory
   implementation profile. Touch has extended the Directory and	allows
   users to define private attributes.	This means that	a user can util-
   ize the Alliance OSI	Directory for a	general	purpose, user defined
   database activity.

   Touch provides a full set of	administration and Directory management
   facilities.

   Touch is in the process of integrating the X.500 product with the
   Worldtalk 400 product. Worldtalk 400	is Touch's end user X.400 mes-
   sage	switch,	providing gateways between proprietary mail systems
   (SMTP, Microsoft Mail, MHS, cc:mail,	etc.) and X.400.  X.500	is a key
   component for a messaging network.

COMPLETENESS

   Strong Authentication is not	supported however Simple Authentication
   is supported.

INTEROPERABILITY

   No interoperability testing has been	completed as of	yet.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   Numerous OEMs are using the Alliance	OSI X.500 product in product
   development as well as in pilot networks.

BUGS

   N/A

CAVEATS	AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

   Currently the Alliance OSI X.500 DIB	has only been validated	within a
   UNIX	File System.  The protocol components are portable as is the
   interface between the DSA and the DIB.

INTERNETWORKING	ENVIRONMENT

   Alliance OSI	X.500 can be utilized over TCP/IP and/or OSI Transport
   on LANs and WANs.  Currently	X.500 has only been verified over OSI,
   however other Alliance OSI application layers have been configured
   over	a RFC-1006 which is available as part of the Alliance OSI pro-
   duct	line.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

   Alliance OSI	has been ported	to numerous platforms ranging from IBM
   Mainframes MVS to Apple Macintosh.  For UNIX	environments Touch has
   portations for 386 AT/Bus, SUN-3 and	4, Mips, and HP.

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS

   As stated above, the	Alliance OSI product have been ported to
   numerous systems.  In the UNIX environment the X.500	product	exists
   on SUN OS 4.0 and greater, Mips RISC	OS, Interactive	386 and	HP-UX.

ABSTRACT

   The implementation consists of a set	DUA library routines, a	terminal
   interface, and a DSA. The implementation was	developed in C on Sun 3
   workstations	under the UNIX operating system. All underlying	services
   are provided	by the ISODE development package. The development pack-
   age is also used for	encoding and decoding ASN.1 data as well as for
   other data manipulation services. Using the ISODE package the imple-
   mentation can be run	over both OSI and TCP/IP protocols.

   The DSA provides full support for both DAP and DSP protocols, confor-
   mant	with ISO 9594/CCITT X.500 standards. The DIB is	maintained using
   a locally developed relational database system. The interface to the
   database system consists of a set of	SQL-like C functions.  These are
   designed to allow straightforward replacement of the	local database
   system with a more powerful commercial system. To achieve better per-
   formance several options are	supported that permit loading of
   selected portions of	the database into core.	When these options are
   selected data can be	retrieved more quickly from in-core tables; all
   modifications to the	DIB are	directly reflected in the in-core tables
   and the database.

COMPLETENESS

   To date the Read, Compare, List, Add	Entry, and Remove Entry	opera-
   tions have been implemented and are supported over both DAP and DSP;
   aliasing and	replication are	also supported.	 The version under
   current development (available January '92) includes	simple authenti-
   cation, access control, and the Search operation. The modify	opera-
   tions and Abandon are not supported and there is no support for
   schema checking.

INTEROPERABILITY

   Have	successfully interoperated with	QUIPU and OSIWARE over the DAP.
   No DSP interoperability testing has been done.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   Not tested.

BUGS

   Some	testing	in the near term future	will be	done to	try to identify
   these, but presently	it's not possible to give an accurate list of
   bugs.

CAVEATS	AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

   No limitations on file sizes, etc. The only side effects to creating
   large files should be in the	area of	performance. Specifically,
   optimization	requires loading parts of the DIB in core so greater
   memory requirements will be necessary for achieving better perfor-
   mance with a	large database.	 Any platform the implementation can be
   ported to (generally	any platform ISODE can be ported to) should sup-
   port	all features.

INTERNETWORKING	ENVIRONMENT

   RFC-1006; TP4/CLNP (SunLink OSI) over 802 and X.25 (SunLink X.25).

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

   It has been run on Sun-3, but there are no known reasons why	it
   should not run on any hardware running the ISODE software.

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS

   It requires UNIX and	the ISODE software package.  It's been developed
   and tested with ISODE version 6.0 and Sun OS	version	4.1.1.	Uses a
   locally developed relational	DBMS that should be easily replaceable
   with	commercially available relational systems.

AVAILABILITY

   While under continuing development, availability of the implementa-
   tion	is limited to organizations making appropriate arrangements with
   NIST.  The implementation will be publicly available	when development
   is completed.

ABSTRACT

   DCE/GDS (Distributed	Computing Environment/Global Directory Service)
   was based on	the original Siemens DIR.X product. It supports	full DUA
   and DSA functions for globally unique identifications and for loca-
   tion	of objects in the network. It also provides functions to answer
   queries (both yellow-page and white-page) about objects and attribute
   information.	 The software implements full DAP and DSP protocols
   specified in	X.519.	An ASN.1 compiler and required ACSE, ROSE,
   presentation, session and RFC-1006 protocols	implementations	are also
   included.

   The product has been	successfully participated in X.500 Cebit Intero-
   perability tests at 1990 and	1991 Hanover Fairs. It also intero-
   perates with	the ISODE QUIPU	X.500 implementation.

COMPLETENESS

   Compliant with EWOS Agreements which	is being harmonized with OIW
   Agreements.

   Strong authentication in X.509 is not yet implemented. (Password
   scheme is currently used.)

   Consists of both DUA	and DSA	implementation according to the	88 CCITT
   X.500 and ISO 9594 standard.	 The X/Open standard XDS (version 1.0)
   and XOM (version 2.0) interface libraries are also provided.	 XDS and
   XOM interfaces are also used	to access DCE/CDS (Local Cell Directory
   Service) transparently. A GDA (Global Directory Agent) serves as the
   gateway between the DCE CDS and GDS.

INTEROPERABILITY

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

ABSTRACT

   DE (Directory Enquiries) is intended	to be a	simple-to-use interface,
   suitable for	the naive user,	and suitable for running as a public
   access dua to provide lowest	common denominator access to the Direc-
   tory.  It is	a scrolling interface and will thus run	on dumb	termi-
   nals, even teletypes!  The user is asked to fill in up to 4 questions
   per query: person's name; department; organization; country.	 The
   prompts are very verbose -- the intention is	that the user should not
   be able get stuck, and information on how to	get into the help system
   should always be on the screen.  The	help screens (of which there are
   15) are aimed at the	non-technical user.  Whilst the	outwards appear-
   ance	of the interface is simple, a lot of attention has being given
   to mapping the strings the user enters onto X.500 operations	in such
   a way that the interface seems to do	the "right thing".  An important
   characteristic is the way the interface tries a series of searches,
   gradually relaxing the matching criteria from exact (in some	sense),
   to good, through to "fuzzy".	 A considerable	amount of configuration
   is possible to present the results in locally acceptable formats.

   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
   128.86.8.56 and logging in as dua --	no password required.

COMPLETENESS

   The interface is a querying engine only.

INTEROPERABILITY

   DE is built with the	ISODE software (release	7.0).  Its interopera-
   bility relies on the	correctness of the Quipu libraries.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   The interface is in use as the COSINE Central DUA Service, and is
   used	by a number of UK institutions as a public access dua (usually
   over	X.29).	It is able to query entries in pilots throughout the
   world.  It is not able to query for entries which are in organiza-
   tions beneath locality entries under	country	entries.  It is	not pos-
   sible to query for people who do not	work for organizations.	 The
   interface only searches for entries of the following	type: organiza-
   tions, organizational units,	people,	roles, and rooms.

BUGS

   Send	bug reports to:

	   p.barker@cs.ucl.ac.uk
	   helpdesk@paradise.ulcc.ac.uk

CAVEATS	AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

   DE tries to cater well for the general case,	at the expense of not
   dealing with	the less typical.  The main manifestation of this is
   that	the current version will not query under localities immediately
   under the country level.

   It is not possible to display photographs or	reproduce sound	attri-
   butes.

INTERNETWORKING	ENVIRONMENT

   Same	as ISODE.  ISODE supports TCP/IP, TP0, and X.25.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

   Should be the same as ISODE in general.

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS

   DE requires the ISODE (current release 7.0) libraries.

AVAILABILITY

   DE is openly	available as part of ISODE and as part of the COSINE DUA
   package.   Available	by FTAM	and FTP, source	code freely available.

ABSTRACT

   This	Directory User Agent interface was ported to the VMS operating
   system using	ISODE 6.0. It is part of the results of	collaboration
   project called ACIDO, between RedIRIS (national network R & D in
   Spain) and the "Facultad de Informatica de Barcelona	(Universidad
   Politecnica de Cataluna)".  The main	objective of this development
   was to provide access to the	directory to all those affiliated cen-
   tres	to the Spanish National	R & D network using VMS	machines. Any
   other use of	this software it is no within RedIRIS objectives and
   therefore it	is not RedIRIS responsibility.

COMPLETENESS

   The same as DUA (QUIPU 6.1).

INTEROPERABILITY

   QUIPU 6.1

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   Used	in RedIRIS Directory Pilot Project to access the DSAs (QUIPU).

BUGS

   You can report bugs to: isode@fib.upc.es

CAVEATS	AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

   The interface is equivalent to the UNIX one except for the option
   -pipe which is not supported.

   The users can have a	quipurc	file to	configure  their  work	environ-
   ments  with	DISH. This file	should reside at the SYS$LOGIN directory
   of the user and it should be	called "quipurc." (in UNIX  it's  called
   .quipurc)

ABSTRACT

   The DIXIE protocol is used to give X.500 access to platforms	that
   have	only TCP/IP access.  The DIXIE server is an intermediate proto-
   col server that communicates	with Internet clients on one side using
   a text-based	UDP/TCP	protocol and an	X.500 DSA on the other side
   using DAP.  The protocol is fully described in RFC 1246.  A subset of
   the X.500 DAP is exported to	the clients through the	DIXIE protocol.
   There is a DIXIE API	provided in the	form of	a library of C-callable
   routines.

   The DIXIE protocol and server are being used	by the following
   products/projects:

     UD, a simple command line white pages DUA for Unix	machines (dis-
     tributed with the DIXIE server)

     maX.500, a	white pages DUA	for the	Macintosh (available from the
     same place	as the DIXIE server)

     Network monitoring	of DSAs	by our Network Operations Center

     Lookup and	display	of caller identification based on telephone
     caller ID (using ISDN).

COMPLETENESS

   The DIXIE protocol does not support access to all X.500 features and
   operations.	All DAP	operations except Abandon are supported.  Gen-
   eral	searches (including multiple component searches) are supported.
   The DIXIE protocol supports none and	simple authentication.	A subset
   of the service controls are supported.

INTEROPERABILITY

   The current implementation of the DIXIE server works	with the QUIPU
   DSA and DAP library.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   The DIXIE server has	been tested in the Internet and	PARADISE pilots.
   It provides full DUA	Connectivity subject to	the limitations	dis-
   cussed above	under completeness.

BUGS

   There are no	known outstanding bugs.	 But reports should be sent to
   x500@umich.edu.

CAVEATS	AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

   None, aside from those mentioned above under	completeness.

INTERNETWORKING	ENVIRONMENT

   DIXIE clients use TCP or UDP	to communicate with the	DIXIE server.
   The DIXIE server uses RFC-1006 with TCP/IP to communicate with the
   DSA,	though other transport mechanisms for DSA communication	should
   be possible.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

   The DIXIE server is known to	run on Sun 3, Sun 4, and DEC 3100 plat-
   forms.  It should run on any	UNIX platform.	The DIXIE library is
   known to run	on the same platforms, and also	on the Macintosh.

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS

   The DIXIE server and	library	is known to run	under SunOS 3.5, SunOS
   4.1.1, Ultrix 4.1 and 4.2.  The DIXIE library also runs on the Macin-
   tosh	System Software	6 or later.

AVAILABILITY

   This	software is openly available.  It may be obtained by anonymous
   FTP from terminator.cc.umich.edu in the directory ~ftp/x500.	Documen-
   tation on the DIXIE protocol	is provided along with the source code,

ABSTRACT

   DS-520 X.500	Distributed Directory Services for UNIX	System V and
   DS-521 X.500	Directory User Agent (DUA) for UNIX System V form an
   integral part of the	Retix OSI Networking Products family.  Designed
   for systems vendors,	public carriers, and other OEMs, DS-520	is a
   complete high-performance implementation of X.500 in	source code
   form, including a DUA, DSA Manager (DSAM), and DSA.	DS-521
   represents a	subset of this product offering. It provides the DUA
   portal into the directory, which, for example, meets	the needs of
   software vendors who	plan to	provide	application packages with X.500
   Directory interaction capabilities. Within these two	offerings, the
   DUA possesses two forms of interface. The first form, the DUA with
   User	Interface, provides an interactive character-based user	inter-
   face	for users of Directory services.  The user agent provides access
   to the Directory via	basic Directory	service	requests. The second
   form, the DUA with Programmatic Interface provides a	standardized
   programmatic	interface to application programs that must access
   Directory information. The interface	is conformant to the X/Open
   Object Management (XOM) and X/Open Directory	Services (XDS) stan-
   dards. This component provides all functionality related to Directory
   access and general OSI services down	to the session layer. The DSAM
   provides an interactive character oriented user interface to	a Direc-
   tory	administrator.	The DSAM provides management functions either
   local to or remote from a DSA. Both the DUA and the DSAM are	useful
   in the training, management,	and manipulation of Directory entries
   maintaining operational and user attribute information. The DSA main-
   tains Directory database information	and provides users the ability
   to read/compare, modify, search, and	manage entries within the data-
   base. It maintains all or fragments of the Directory	Information Base
   (DIB) and provides abstract service ports for DUAs and DSAs over DAP
   and DSP protocols respectively.

COMPLETENESS

   DS-520 represents a complete	implementation of the 1988 X.500 Recom-
   mendations with the exception of strong authentication as outlined in
   X.509. It is	conformant to NIST, EWOS, and UK GOSIP Directory pro-
   files. It provides session through application layer	protocol support
   and hence incorporates ROSE,	ACSE, Presentation, and	Session	within
   its product stack. In addition to including all the attribute types,
   syntaxes, and object	classes	defined	in X.520 and X.521, the	DS-520
   includes support for	those specified	in the 1988 X.400 Recommendation
   X.402, Annex	A. Remote on-line management of	the DSA	is supported by
   means of Network Management Forum CMIP.

   DS-521 represents a complete	implementation of the X/Open Object
   Management (OM) and X/Open Directory	Services (XDS) standards. It
   also	incorporates session through application layer protocol	support
   and thus includes ROSE, ACSE, Presentation, and Session within its
   product stack.

INTEROPERABILITY

   The DS-520 has been tested to interoperate with Banyan (DAP), CDC
   (DSP), IBM, ICL, OSIWare, Nixdorff, Unisys (DSP), Wollongong	(DAP),
   and 3-Com (DSP).

   The DS-521 subset has undergone no separate interoperability	testing.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   DSA Connectivity provided by	the DS-520: The	DSA provides complete
   support for the X.511 Abstract Service Definition, the directoryAc-
   cessAC and the directorySystemAC defined in the X.519 Protocol
   Specifications, and the Distributed Directory defined in the	X.518
   Procedures for the Distributed Directory. It	supports all the object
   classes, attribute types, and attribute syntaxes defined in X.520 and
   X.521. It does not support the Internet DSP however.

   DUA Connectivity provided by	both the DS-520	and DS-521: The	DUA pro-
   vides complete support for the X.511	Abstract Service Definition and
   the directoryAccessAC defined in the	X.519 Protocol Specifications.
   The DUA with	User Interface supports	only a subset of the X.500
   attributes and object classes defined in X.520 and X.521. The DUA
   with	Programmatic Interface,	however, does support all the object
   classes, attribute types, and attribute syntaxes defined in these two
   recommendations.

BUGS

   Product Action Requests (PARs) stemming externally from customers and
   internally from customer service and	quality	assurance engineers are
   generated and published in the form of weekly reports. A description
   and status of these PARs are	provided to customers possessing
   software maintenance	agreements.

CAVEATS	AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

   DS-520 and DS-521 are source	code products ported to	UNIX System V
   Release 3 and 4. Makefiles to generate the system are provided for
   the AT&T System V, SCO, and Interactive UNIX	systems.

INTERNETWORKING	ENVIRONMENT

   DS-520 and DS-521 offer two main compile time configuration options
   and hence internetworking configurations. In	the first of these, they
   interface to	the UNIX System	V Transport Library Interface (TLI).
   The TLI provides a path between the session layer of	a UNIX OSI
   application process and an OSI transport provider installed in the
   UNIX	kernel.	The latter transport provider may take the form	of a
   Retix Unix LAN (LT-610) or WAN (WT-325) transport product. The second
   main	option utilizes	the UNIX System	V ACSE/Presentation Library
   interface (APLI and the A/P Library), which provides	OSI ACSE and
   Presentation	layer services.	The Retix AP-240 Presentation syntax
   manager product serves to map the standard Retix Presentation layer
   interface to	the AT&T APLI. The APLI	upper layers services may be
   provided by the Retix UL-220	product. UL-220	is the Retix implementa-
   tion	of the AT&T Open Networking Platform Upper Layer Services module
   and includes	the A/P	library, as well as the	OSI ACSE, Presentation,
   and Session services.

   DS-520 and DS-521 may also run on top of the	TCP/IP stack by	means of
   the Retix MP-120 product. MP-120 is a STREAMS based driver that
   implements RFC-1006 and thus	allows OSI applications	to run over a
   network based on the	Internet suite of protocols (TCP/IP). Its main
   function provides a conversion between the TCP stream to the	data
   packets required by OSI Transport Class 0 protocol and vice versa. As
   part	of this	process, it converts TCP/IP 32-bit addresses to	hex
   values for use with OSI applications.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

   Being source	code products ported to	the UNIX System	V Release 3  and
   4  operating	system environment, DS-520 and DS-521 are hardware plat-
   form	independent. They currently both have sample portations	and test
   configurations on various Intel 80386 platforms running Unix	System V
   Release 3 and 4.

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS

   Currently, DS-520 and DS-521	include	reference implementations for
   the AT&T System V Release 4,	SCO UNIX System	V/386 Version 3.2.2, and
   the Interactive UNIX	System V/386 Version 2.2 operating systems.
   Raima Corporation's db_Vista	III Version 3.1	serves as the database
   engine for the Directory product.

ABSTRACT

   HP's	Distributed Directory Software is a fully distributed Directory
   that	supports both the DAP and DSP protocols, which were specified in
   the 1988 CCITT/ISO X.500 documents.	Besides	implementing the stan-
   dard, we have also put in proprietary access	control	and replication.
   These additional features will be migrated to the standard definition
   at the time that they are stable.  Users are	able to	define their own
   attributes, objects classes and DIT structure rules.

   In order to make this software easy to use a	set of menu driven
   screens have	been provided.	There are easy to use data access and
   data	management screens.  For system	administrators,	these is also a
   set for screens that	are used to help configure the servers and
   manage the schema. Startup and Shutdown utilities are also included.

   For application developers an X/Open-APIA XDS API is	provided, along
   with	some helper routines that help reduce development time.	 The XDS
   API includes	the following functions:

	   Bind
	   Read
	   Search
	   Add
	   Remove
	   Unbind
	   Version

   A subset of the X/Open-APIA Object Management (XOM) functions are
   available thru the interface.  The subset are those that are	neces-
   sary	to perform the directory operations.

   For bulk operations a batch interface is also available.

COMPLETENESS

   This	software implements the	1988 X.500 CCITT/ISO Standard.	It fully
   supports DAP	and DSP, minus strong authentication.  By default it
   contains all	of the X.520 Attributes	and the	X.521 Syntaxes and
   Object Classes.  Additionally, the Annex B DIT Structure can	be
   enforced.

   Interoperability testing will be undertaken as new X.500 products are
   introduced into the market.

ABSTRACT

   maX.500 is a	Macintosh X.500	directory application useful for
   displaying and modifying white pages	information about people.  It
   runs	on top of the DIXIE protocol (described	in RFC 1246).  maX.500
   is currently	in production release 1.1 within the University	of
   Michigan and	several	other places.

   Features include the	ability	to display and modify the following
   attributes: title, description, commonName, uid, mail, postalAddress,
   homePostalAddress, telephoneNumber, facsimileTelephoneNumber, home-
   Phone.  Photos can also be displayed.  The software also provides
   access to the finger	protocol.  Various preferences are user-
   tailorable, including caching.

COMPLETENESS

   maX.500 uses	the DIXIE protocol to access X.500 and thus is subject
   to the same completeness restrictions as DIXIE.  It provides	Read,
   Search, and Modify capabilities.

INTEROPERABILITY

   Works with the DIXIE	server,	which works with the QUIPU DSA and DAP
   library.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   It has been tested (in conjunction with the DIXIE server) in	both the
   Internet and	PARADISE pilots.

BUGS

   No outstanding bugs are known.  But reports should be sent to
   x500@itd.umich.edu.

CAVEATS	AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

   maX.500 is heavily oriented to white	pages information and thus gen-
   eral	access to the DIXIE protocol is	not provided.

INTERNETWORKING	ENVIRONMENT

   maX.500 uses	the DIXIE protocol and thus TCP	to communicate with the
   DIXIE server.  The Macintosh	needs to have MacTCP installed.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

   Mac Plus or newer machine with one megabyte or more of memory.

ABSTRACT

   OSI-DSA provides a Directory	System agent for controlled access to
   the OSI Directory Information Base.	It provides full support for the
   joint ISO/IEC IS-9594 International standard	and CCITT X.500	Recom-
   mendations 1988 protocols necessary for implementing	the Directory
   Information Base distributed	across a number	of DSA's.

   The product also includes an	Administration User interface program,
   to allow a human administrator to construct and maintain the	local
   Directory Information.

   Specific features provided by the Directory System Agent include:

       (i)    Support of the directoryAccessAC and directorySystemAC
	      application contexts (i.e. both Directory	Access Protocol
	      (DAP) and	Directory System Protocol (DSP)

       (ii)   Bind Security levels of none and simple unprotected.

       (iii)  Capability of acting as a	first level DSA.

       (iv)   Support for chaining and multi-casting where necessary in
	      handling distributed operations. Also supports the return
	      of referrals.

       (v)    Support for all attribute	types and syntaxes defined in
	      X.520.  Users are	also able to define their own attributes
	      and syntaxes.

       (vi)   Support for all the object classes and attribute sets
	      defined in X.521.	 Users are also	able to	define their own
	      object classes and attribute sets.  Support is also pro-
	      vided for	a NAME-BINDING specification, for defining the

	      Directory	Information Tree (DIT) structure.

       (vii)  An access	control	mechanism based	on the ISO  access  con-
	      trol  working  papers  to	 allow for controlled access and
	      maintenance of Directory entries and attributes.

       (viii) Logging of errors	and significant	Directory events, as
	      well as optional trace information.

       (ix)   The OSI-DSA utilizes the services	of ROSE	(X.219)	and ACSE
	      (X.217) as defined in clause 8 of	X.519

   The Administration program provides the following functions

       (i)    An interface to each of the basic	Directory Operations of
	      Read, Compare, List, Search, Add,	Modify,	ModifyRDN.

       (ii)   A	Dump/Load utility to dump the information in the local
	      DIB into an ASCII	file and load it again into the	DIB from
	      such a file.

       (iii)  Knowledge	Reference maintenance facilities to Add, Delete
	      Modify and Read all types	of Knowledge References.

       (iv)   Facilities to control the	operation of local Directory
	      processes.

       (v)    Control over the level of	logging	and tracing.

COMPLETENESS

   The OSI-DSA provides	all functionality defined in, and is fully con-
   formant to, the joint ISO/IEC IS-9594 International standard	and
   CCITT X.500 Recommendations 1988, and the NIST 1988 Stable agreements
   on Directory	Services.

   The only exception is that no support is provided for strong	authen-
   tication or digital signatures.

   Conformance with respect to clause 9	of X.519:

       (i)    The DSA supports both the	directoryAccessAC and directo-
	      rySystemAC application contexts.

       (ii)   The DSA is capable of acting as a	first-level DSA.

       (iii)  The chained mode of operation as defined in X.518	is sup-
	      ported.

       (iv)   Bind Security levels of none and simple unprotected are
	      supported.

       (v)    All attribute types and syntaxes defined in X.520	are sup-
	      ported. Users are	also able to define their own attributes
	      and syntaxes.

       (vi)   All the object classes and attribute sets	defined	in X.521
	      are supported.  Users are	also able to define their own
	      object classes and attribute sets.  Support is also pro-
	      vided for	a NAME-BINDING specification, for defining the
	      Directory	Information Tree (DIT) structure.

       (vii)  The DSA conforms to all the static requirements defined in
	      clause 9.2.2 of X.519

       (viii) The DSA conforms to all the dynamic requirements defined
	      in clause	9.2.3 of X.519

INTEROPERABILITY

   The product was demonstrated	at "Interop 91"	in San Jose, October
   1991	as part	of the OSI Showcase demo involving several vendors'
   directory products.

   Informal interoperability has been achieved against the ISODE 6.0
   QUIPU Directory implementation.  Interoperability testing against
   other vendors is in progress.

   Formal interoperability testing is awaiting the soon	to be completed
   OSInet X.500	interoperability test suite.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   Not tested.

BUGS

   Full	customer support is provided via your local Unisys Customer Ser-
   vices Organization.

CAVEATS	AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

   Results returned via	the OSI-DSA are	presently limited to 32K in the
   current release, which is in	line with the 1988 NIST	agreements.

   Patches for the Unix	V.4 release may	be made	available on request to
   raise this limit to 1Mb.

   The product currently does not provide any support for replication,
   although development	work is	in progress, based on the current ISO
   Draft proposal for Replication.

INTERNETWORKING	ENVIRONMENT

   OSI-DSA runs	over all communications	environments supported by the
   Unisys OSI stack product (see Software platforms). Currently	these
   support TP0,	TP2, TP3 and TP4 over X.25 and TP4 over	CLNP on	802.3
   and X.25.  Support for RFC1006 over TCP/IP is under development.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

   The product is available on all Unisys Unix 6000 Series machines.

   Source code is available for	portation to non-Unisys	platforms.

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS

   The product is distributed and supported for	Unix System V.3	and Unix
   System V.4.

   On Unix V.3,	it requires the	Unisys Application Presentation	Service
   OSI stack software (APS), and Unisys	Transport Network Service
   software (TNS).  On Unix V.4, it requires the integrated Unisys OSI
   stack software product (STK).  These	services are accessed via the
   ROSLI (ROSE)	and APLI (ACSE)	programming interfaces which are
   currently the subject of standardization efforts by XOpen and Unix
   International.

   A runtime version of	either the Informix or Oracle relational data-
   base	products is required for the Directory Information Base.

ABSTRACT

   OSI-DUA is a	Unix C Program interface library. It allows OSI	or user
   applications	to access the services of an X.500 conformant Directory,
   by making calls to a	library	of C routines.

   Specific features provided by this program interface	library	are as
   follows:

       (i)    Connection to any	remote X.500 conformant	DSA via	an OSI
	      stack, or	connection to a	co-resident Unisys OSI DSA via
	      IPC mechanisms.

       (ii)   All operations defined in	the directoryAccessAC applica-
	      tion context (Bind, UnBind, Read,	Compare, Search, List,
	      AddEntry,	ModifyEntry, ModifyRDN,	Abandon, DeleteEntry).

       (iii)  Directory	Bind security levels of	none and simple	unpro-
	      tected.

       (iv)   Execution	of both	blocking and non-blocking operations.
	      (A non-blocking call to the library will return immedi-
	      ately, allowing for results to be	obtained once the opera-
	      tion has completed)

       (v)    Acceptance of multiple concurrent	non-blocked operations
	      on the one user session.

       (vi)   The DUA utilizes the services of ROSE (X.219) and	ACSE
	      (X.217) as defined in clause 8 of	X.519

COMPLETENESS

   When	communicating with a Remote DSA	the DUA	library	is fully confor-
   mant	with the Directory Access Protocol detailed in the X.500
   Recommendations/IS-9594 standards.

   Conformance with respect to clause 9	of X.519:

       (i)    All operations defined in	the  directoryAccessAC	applica-
	      tion  context  (Bind, UnBind, Read, Compare, Search, List,
	      AddEntry,	ModifyEntry,  ModifyRDN,  Abandon,  DeleteEntry)
	      are supported.

       (ii)   Directory	Bind security levels of	none and  simple  unpro-
	      tected are supported.

       (iii)  The directoryAccessAC application	context	is supported  as
	      specified	in clause 7 of X.519.

       (iv)   The DUA conforms to the mapping onto used	services as  de-
	      fined in clause 8	of X.519.

INTEROPERABILITY

   Informal interoperability has been achieved against the ISODE 6.0
   QUIPU Directory implementation.  Interoperability testing against
   other vendors is in progress.

   Formal interoperability testing is awaiting the soon	to be completed
   OSInet X.500	interoperability test suite.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   Not tested.

BUGS

   Full	customer support is provided via your local Unisys Customer Ser-
   vices Organisation.

CAVEATS	AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

   The present OSI-DUA does not	provide	for the	 automatic  handling  of
   referrals  by  the  interface library. However interface routines are
   provided which allow	referrals to be	acted upon by the user	applica-
   tion.

   The present OSI-DUA provides	a proprietary C	 programming  interface.
   An XOpen XDS	conformant interface is	currently under	development.

INTERNETWORKING	ENVIRONMENT

   OSI-DUA runs	over all communications	environments supported by the
   Unisys OSI stack product (see Software platforms). Currently	these
   support TP0,	TP2, TP3 and TP4 over X.25 and TP4 over	CLNP on	802.3
   and X.25.  Support for RFC1006 over TCP/IP is under development.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

   The product is currently available on all Unisys Unix 6000 Series
   machines.

ABSTRACT

   POD (POpup Directory) is an X.500 DUA interface for the X Window Sys-
   tem.	 POD is	a first	attempt	at a multiwindow directory tool. It
   offers a simplified interfaces to the basic X.500 operations	of read,
   search, list	and modify entry.

   POD does not	provide	any sophisticated access to the	DSA.  Operations
   are performed synchronously.	 The Directory is thus presented as is,
   i.e.	 a hierarchical	tree of	information, with the user required to
   "navigate" the DIT in order to locate required information.

   POD is available as part of the ISODE release from version 6.0
   onwards.

COMPLETENESS

   88 standard:	strong authentication not implemented

INTEROPERABILITY

   Believed to be compliant, though untested.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   DUA Connectivity: POD is in use in many directory pilots, certainly

ABSTRACT

   psiwp is a Macintosh	Front End to White Pages service.  It is a
   graphical user interface implementing a partial-DUA.	 It is based on
   the ISODE QUIPU X.500 implementation	and the	Directory Assistance
   Protocol (DAP).

   psiwp is a Macintosh	application tailored specifically to provide
   easy	access to the Directory	for the	purposes of performing White
   Pages searches.  Implements User-Friendly Naming scheme developed in
   IETF	OSI-DS Working Group.

   psiwp implements a Directory	Assistance Protocol (DAP) client.

COMPLETENESS

   Compliant with X.500	standards to the extent	that the QUIPU implemen-
   tation is.

INTEROPERABILITY

   Successfully	interoperates with QUIPU DSAs

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   Being used in the White Pages Pilot Project.

BUGS

   Support is available	(for registered	users of psiwp only) from
   psiwp-help@psi.com.

CAVEATS	AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

   psiwp is not	a general-purpose DUA. It was designed to be a special-
   purpose front-end for performing White Pages	searches and thus, in
   the interests of simplification, does not provide the full range of
   functionality supported by the X.500	standard. A Directory Assistance
   server (available as	part of	the ISODE distribution)	must also be run
   by sites that do not	want to	run psiwp against either of the	two
   White Pages Pilot Project service machines, wp1.psi.net and
   wp2.psi.net.

INTERNETWORKING	ENVIRONMENT

   Runs	on Macintoshes as a Finder or MultiFinder application.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

   Runs	on Macintoshes that support MacTCP. Requires an	ethernet board
   or AppleTalk	connectivity. At least 1MB of memory is	required, and
   while psiwp will run	on most	forms of Macintoshes, a	Mac-II is recom-
   mended.

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS

   Requires MacTCP 1.0 or later, and Finder (or	Multifinder) 6.x (Finder
   7.0 WILL NOT	WORK). Requires	ISODE Version 6.8 or later.

AVAILABILITY

   psiwp is shareware available	for anonymous ftp from uu.psi.com

ABSTRACT

   QUIPU is part of the	ISODE which is an openly available implementa-
   tion	of the upper layers of OSI.  QUIPU provides a X.500 Directory
   System Agent	(DSA) and a set	of Directory User Agents (DUA) aimed at
   different terminal types and	modes of interaction

   QUIPU was first publicly demonstrated at ESPRIT in November 1988.
   QUIPU is being used extensively in the European PARADISE project, the
   White Pages Pilot Project and the Australian	pilot.	A QUIPU	DSA is
   being used at the ROOT node of the Pilot DIT	and is being used as
   most	country	level DSAs.

   QUIPU provides its own solutions to area not	specified by the 1988
   standards such as replication and access control.

COMPLETENESS

   QUIPU is aligned to the 1988	ISO IS and the NIST OIW	Directory Imple-
   mentors Guide Version 1, with the following exceptions:

       Strong authentication is	not implemented.

       QUIPU does not enforce the bounds constraints on	attributes,
       filters or APDU size.

       T.61 string formatting characters are not rejected.

       If a DN is supplied with	no password in an unprotected simple
       bind, QUIPU does	not always check to see	if the DN exists.  If
       the DSA connected to can	say authoritatively the	DN does	not
       exist, the association is rejected.  However, if	a chain	opera-
       tion is required	to check the DN, the bind IS allowed.

       When comparing attributes of UTCtime syntax, if the seconds field
       is omitted, QUIPU does not perform the match correctly (i.e., the
       seconds field in	the attribute values should be ignored,	but  are
       not).

       QUIPU always supplies the optional Chaining argument ``origina-
       tor'' even if the CommonArgument	``requestor'' is used.

       QUIPU always supplies the optional Chaining argument ``target''
       even if the base	object in the DAP arguments is the same.

       The object class	``without an assigned object identifier'' is not
       recognized unless the ``alias'' object class is also present.

       Non Specific Subordinate	References are never followed by a QUIPU
       DSA, but	they are passed	on correctly to	the client if generated.

INTEROPERABILITY

   QUIPU has interworked with a	number of other	implementations, and has
   no know problems in such interworking.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   QUIPU is in use in many directory pilots, certainly including PARAD-
   ISE and the White Pages Pilot Project.

BUGS

   Problems should be reported to quipu-support@cs.ucl.ac.uk.

CAVEATS	AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

   None.

INTERNETWORKING	ENVIRONMENT

   QUIPU users TP0 over	X.25, CONS and TCP (using RFC-1006) or TP4 over
   SunLink OSI.

   The DSA knows about the problems of unconnected networks and	makes
   chain/refer choices based on	the network connectivity.  Using this an
   X.25	only DSA can access data from an Internet only DSA by chaining
   operations through a	DSA connected to both networks.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

   [No information provided--Ed.]

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS

   The ISODE and QUIPU runs on native Berkeley (4.2, 4.3) and AT&T Sys-
   tem V, in addition to various other UNIX-like operating systems.  No
   kernel modifications	are required.

AVAILABILITY

   The ISODE is	not proprietary, but it	is not in the public domain.
   This	was necessary to include a "hold harmless" clause in the
   release.  The upshot	of all this is that anyone can get a copy of the
   release and do anything they	want with it, but no one takes any
   responsibility whatsoever for any (mis)use.

DISTRIBUTION SITES

   The FTP or FTAM distributions of ISODE-7.0 consists of 3 files. The
   source and main ISODE-7.0 distribution is in	the file isode-7.tar.Z
   which is approximately 4.7MB	in size.

   LaTeX source	for the	entire document	set can	be found in the	isode-
   7-doc.tar.Z file (3.5MB).  A	list of	documents can be found in the
   doc/	directory of the source	tree.

   A Postscript	version	of the five volume manual can be found in the
   isode-7-ps.tar.Z file (4.7MB).

   1.  FTP
	  If you can FTP to the	Internet, then use anonymous FTP to
	  uu.psi.com [136.161.128.3] to	retrieve the files in BINARY
	  mode from the	isode/ directory.

   2.  NIFTP
	  If you run NIFTP over	the public X.25	or over	JANET, and are
	  registered in	the NRS	at Salford, you	can use	NIFTP with usen-
	  rame "guest" and your	own name as password, to access
	  UK.AC.UCL.CS to retrieve the files from the <SRC> directory

ABSTRACT

   SD (Screen Directory) is an X.500 DUA interface for character mapped
   screens.  SD	is an early attempt to provide quick, easy and user
   friendly access to the Directory.  The following directory operations
   are supported: read,	search and list.

   SD does not provide any sophisticated access	to the DSA.  Operations
   are performed synchronously.	 The Directory is thus presented as is,
   i.e.	 a hierarchical	tree of	information, with the user required to
   "navigate" the DIT in order to locate required information.

   SD is available as part of the ISODE	release	from version 6.0
   onwards.

COMPLETENESS

   88 standard:	strong authentication not implemented

INTEROPERABILITY

   Believed to be compliant, though untested.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   DUA Connectivity: SD	is in use in many directory pilots, certainly
   including PARADISE and the Internet.

   UNIX, X.25

ABSTRACT

   UCOM.X 500 includes a Directory System Agent	(DSA), a directory
   access API, and a set of Directory User Agents (DUAs) for different
   terminal types. UCOM.X 500 is a commercial product based on PIZARRO,
   the research	prototype developed at INRIA by	Christian Huitema's
   team.

   Some	characteristics	of the DSA are:

       - The DAP and DSP protocols are provided	conformant with	the 1988
       CCITT X.500 recommendations.

       - 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.

       - The DIT structure is held in main memory. Additionally, fre-
       quently used attributes may be held in inverted tables in memory
       to speed	up searches.

       - Knowledge management: knowledge on managed domains is stored in
       UCOM.X specific attributes of the DSA entries.

       - All X.500 (88)	as well	as some	X.400 (88) object classes,
       attributes and syntaxes are supported. Users may	define their own
       classes and attribute types.

       - Schema	management: object class and attribute definitions are
       enforced.

       - Simple	authentication is provided; strong authentication is not
       currently supported.

       - Access	control: private mechanisms are	provided to allow access
       control lists to	be specified for parts of the DIT, to control
       modifications, and to specify access restrictions on attributes.

   The UCOM.X 500 API provides the DAP protocol	to applications	access-
   ing the Directory. It is a synchronous API which automatically
   manages referrals. Several DUAs using the API, are available. These
   include command line	and full screen	interfaces for users with ordi-
   nary	terminals, and an X-Windows user interface (12/91). An X/Open
   XDS API will	be offered shortly.

   UCOM.X 500 is used by French	research centers involved in PARADISE, a
   COSINE project. A distributed application to	control	document
   transfer in a large French hospital,	has been built on the UCOM.X 500
   API.	It is being used for distributed applications management in the
   French Post Office.

COMPLETENESS

   UCOM.X 500 conforms to 1988 X.500 series of recommendations,	as
   specified in	paragraph 9 of X.519, with the exception of strong
   authentication.

INTEROPERABILITY

   Interoperability tests with other implementations, e.g. QUIPU, have
   been	made in	the PARADISE project. UCOM.X 500 is used in the	French
   PARADISE pilot.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   DSA and DUA connectivity to the PARADISE pilots.  See caveats.

BUGS

   UCOM.X 500 is a commercial product. As such,	it is supported	and bugs
   are fixed when detected. Bug	reports	can be sent to our support team
   via electronic mail.

CAVEATS	AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

   The DIT structure is	stored in main memory which means that the order
   of magnitude	of the number of objects supported per DSA is 10,000. By
   1992	100,000	objects	will be	supported.

   Not all syntaxes defined in the COSINE and Internet Schema are
   currently supported,	and the	DUAs do	not display photo attributes.
   The Internet	DSP is not supported.

INTERNETWORKING	ENVIRONMENT

   UCOM.X 500 uses RFC-1006 with TCP/IP	and TP0	with X.25.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

   UCOM.X 500 runs on: Sun 3, Sun 4, IBM RS 6000, Philips P 9000, DEC
   machines, Bull DPX 2000, HP 9000/300, Siemens IN 6000 and 386-based
   PCs.	 It can	easily be ported to any	UNIX machine.

   Windows 3 and Macintosh DUAs	will be	available by Spring 1992.

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS

   UCOM.X 500 is portable to any UNIX-like operating system. It	has been
   ported to: AIX, UNIX	System V.3, SUN	OS 4, Ultrix, HP-UX, SCO Unix,
   Interactive,	BOS (Bull Operating System), and SPIX.

   The UNIX file system	is used	to hold	the DIB.

ABSTRACT

   ud is a command line	based directory	application useful for display-
   ing and modifying white pages information about people.  It runs on
   top of the DIXIE protocol (described	in RFC 1246).  ud was developed
   to run under	Unix and is currently in beta release within U-M staff
   and a few other places that have heard of it.

   Features include the	ability	to display and modify the following
   attributes: title, description, commonName, uid, mail, postalAddress,
   homePostalAddress, telephoneNumber, facsimileTelephoneNumber, home-
   Phone.

COMPLETENESS

   ud uses the DIXIE protocol to access	X.500 and thus is subject to the
   same	completeness restrictions as DIXIE.  It	provides Read, Search,
   and Modify capabilities.

INTEROPERABILITY

   Works with the DIXIE	server,	which works with the QUIPU DSA and DAP
   library.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   It has been tested (in conjunction with the DIXIE server) in	both the
   Internet and	PARADISE pilots.

BUGS

   No outstanding bugs are known.  But reports should be sent to
   x500@itd.umich.edu.

CAVEATS	AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

   ud is heavily oriented to white pages information and thus general
   access to the DIXIE protocol	is not provided.

INTERNETWORKING	ENVIRONMENT

   ud uses the DIXIE protocol and thus TCP to communicate with the DIXIE
   server.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

   ud is known to run on Sun 3s, Sun 4s, and Vaxen.

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS

   SunOS 3.5, SunOS 4.1.1, BSD 4.3 Unix.

ABSTRACT

   VTT X.500 contains a	full distributed DSA and a subroutine call to
   dua ( call_dua(parameters)).	This subroutine	is linked to user's pro-
   cess.  There	are two	ways for dua to	communicate with our DSA called
   dsacvops: a fast communication through shared memory	for dua	and dsa
   in the same computer	and a complete OSI-stack for communicating in
   DAP-protocol	with remote dsa's which	can be any implementation of
   X.500 dsa, not necessarily dsacvops.	 DSA communicates with other
   dsas	through	a full OSI-stack with protocol DSP or with a shorter
   stack when both dsas	are dsacvops-processes.	 dsacvops contains a
   special purpose database DIB. VTT X500 contains caching of read and
   search results, access controls (as in Annex	F of X.501), object
   classes and attribute types as in X.520 and X.521 and simple	authen-
   tication with unprotected passwords in bind.	The network level can be
   X.25	or TCP/IP. There are test duas,	duacvops, duauser, with	a simple
   user	interface. Certificates	for strong authentication are included
   to x509dua and x509duacvops.	VTT X500 is realized with program
   development tools CVOPS and CASN, the code is in C-language and uses
   UNIX	System V. The code is fairly easy to port to other operating
   systems.  VTT X500 was made for Smail e-mail	product	of Nokia Data
   Systems.

COMPLETENESS

   Complete DAP	and DSP	of 1988	X.500 Recommendations are implemented.
   There are the following omissions: multicasting is not implemented,
   strong authentication of calls to dsa (optional signing of DAP and
   DSP-calls, strong authentication in bind, security error, security
   parameters in common	arguments), T61	alternative in CASE IGNORE and
   CASE	EXACT STRING, Criteria-syntax, TeletexTerminalIdentifier syntax.

INTEROPERABILITY

   Interoperability with ISODE QUIPU 6.0 has been tested, no formal test
   suite was used.

PILOT CONNECTIVITY

   Not tested: It should work in principle, but	has not	been tested.

BUGS

   No known bugs at the	moment.

CAVEATS	AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

   Object identifiers for object classes and attribute types can
   currently have only the form	{2 5 6 x} or {2	5 4 x},	x<256. Changing
   the directory schema	requires code writing.

INTERWORKING ENVIRONMENT

   RFC-1006 with TCP/IP, TP0 with X.25,	TP4 with X.25 available	by
   agreement.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

ABSTRACT

   WIN/DS is an	implementation of OSI Directory	Services aligned with
   the ISO 1988	X.500 IS and NIST Stable Implementors Agreements. WIN/DS
   includes both a Directory User Agent	(DUA) and a  Directory System
   Agent (DSA).	The product supports all Directory Services operations,
   object classes and attributes.  It provides support for managing the
   Directory Information Tree (DIT) with facilities to control structure
   rules and their enforcement.	 WIN/DS	also provides solutions	to areas
   not specified by the	1988 standards,	such as	replication and	access
   control.

COMPLETENESS

   Wollongong closely follows the NIST OIW Stable Implementors'	Agree-
   ments.  See also QUIPU.

INTEROPERABILITY

   WIN/DS has interoperated with other X.500 implementations at	trade
   shows (CeBIT	and Interop) and at strategic customer sites.

ABSTRACT

   The DUA process runs	on 3Com's dual-stack OSI/TCP terminal server,
   scheduled to	be released in mid-June	1991.  It provides Presentation
   Address resolution for names, on behalf of the VTP application: when
   the user attempts an	outgoing connection ("VTP <name>" or "connect
   <name>"), <name> gets mapped	to its Presentation Address.

   The DUA process supports the	AddEntry, RemoveEntry, and Search opera-
   tions.  Via a menu-driven command, the system administrator can con-
   figure any of these operations, then	send the request to the	DSA.  He
   would use the AddEntry operation to enter a resource	name and its
   corresponding physical address in the DIB, the DeleteEntry operation
   to remove the name and its physical address,	and the	Search operation
   (with "filter" as an	option)	for a display of all registered	names
   or, given a name, a display of the name's physical address.

   Regarding unbinding from a DSA, the system administrator could use an
   UnbindDSA command or	set a timer which, once	expired, would automati-
   cally perform the unbinding.	 The binding to	a DSA, on the other
   hand, is transparent, provided the system administrator has set a DSA
   address.  The binding is triggered by either	an outgoing connection
   attempt or an operation request sent	to the DSA.

   The schema supported	by the DUA consists of the following sequence of
   object classes: Country, Organization, OrganizationalUnit (up to 3
   levels of OrganizationalUnits are allowed), ApplicationProcess, and
   ApplicationEntity.  Their respective	attributes are CountryName,
   OrganizationName, OrganizationUnitName, CommonName, and Presenta-
   tionAddress.	 The CommonName	of the ApplicationEntity is always "vt"
   for VTP and is transparent to the system administrator.

COMPLETENESS

   Compliance with the ISO/IEC 9594 standards.
   Handling referrals not yet implemented.
   Schema supported: Country, Organization, OrganizationalUnit,
		     ApplicationProcess, and ApplicationEntity.
   Authentication not supported.

INTEROPERABILITY

   Interoperability with the ISODE QUIPU Directory Service and any DSA
   which strictly meets	the ISO/IEC 9495 standards.

BUGS

   [No information provided--Ed.]

CAVEATS	AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS

   Deleting an entry will fail if the DUA is interacting with a	6.0
   based version of QUIPU.  This is a bug in QUIPU, and	version	7.0
   release will	have it	fixed.

   Adding a CountryName	is disallowed if the DUA is bound to QUIPU.
   This	decision was made because to add a country in QUIPU, one needs
   to bind as the manager of the DSA holding the root EDB file,	and such
   information may not always be available to the system administrator.
   Also, our binding is	done transparently.

ABSTRACT

   Xdi is a Directory User Agent (DUA) for the X Window	System.	 In
   addition to providing a user-friendly interface,it supports Directory
   interactions	of different levels of complexity. Users can select dif-
   ferent window screens to browse, search and modify the Directory.
   There are two different search screens for name based search	and
   attribute based search. It is simple	to use for novice users	but is
   also	useful for more	advanced users to formulate complex search
   filters.  Xdi also supports "user-friendly naming" in many cases so
   that	users are not required to know X.500 naming format.

COMPLETENESS

   The Xdi interface does not support accesses to Delete and Add DAP
   operations as in the	88 Directory Standard. Read, Search, and most
   Modify operations are fully supported. There	are no facilities to
   modify the RDNs of entries. Strong authentication is	not implemented.

INTEROPERABILITY

   Believed to be compliant. Only tested against ISODE/QUIPU DSAs.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS

   This	software has been tested on SUN4. It is	expected that the
   software is portable	to SUN3	and other UNIX machines.

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS

   Xdi is expected to run on ISODE (release 6.8	upwards) in UNIX
   environment.	 The 'xdi' directory has been designed to fit directly
   into	the ISODE source tree. Xdi requires X11R4, the associated Xt
   toolkit and Athena widget libraries.	 Also see the operating	environ-
   ments of ISODE.

ABSTRACT

   Xds is a DUA	designed for users who have little or no knowledge of
   X.500. Its intended to be used, for example,	by a receptionist who
   has to answer such queries as 'Could	I have the telephone number of
   Andrew who works in Research?'. The display is customized for the
   particular organization and the results of the search are presented
   in the format of a business card. It	is possible to customize the
   displayed information.

COMPLETENESS

   Xds does not	provide	user access to all the services	provided by
   X.500.  Instead, Xds	uses X.500 services to provide the specific
   functions for which it is designed to provide.

   Conforms to section 9 of X.519.

ABSTRACT

   The xdua is a DUA designed to be used by DSA	managers who have suffi-
   cient X.500 knowledge to manipulate the Directory Information Tree
   (DIT). It's typical use is to maintain the information stored on a
   DSA.	The xdua has a Macintosh style interface.  This	simplifies
   browsing the	DIT hierarchy.	A user can traverse the	DIT levels by
   using a standard mouse.  The	xdua supports the X.500	operations of
   add,	modify,	delete,	search and show.

COMPLETENESS

   Uses	the QUIPU (ISODE) dsap interface to provide the	X.500 opera-
   tions.

   Conforms to section 9 of X.519.

ABSTRACT

   The xwp program is a	simple browser for the QUIPU/X.500 directory.
   It uses OSF/Motif and the X Window System to	provide	a convenient
   user	interface.

   The user interface consists of five different top-level windows: the
   main	window,	the search window, and three option windows.  The main
   window appears when the program is executed and all others are
   reached through its menus.  The main	window contains	Current	Loca-
   tion, Current Descendents, Descendent Filter, Current Information,
   and Directory Status	subwindows.  The contents of these subwindows
   show	information about the current location of the browser in the
   directory tree.  The	search window contains Search Area, Search
   Filter, and Search Results subwindows.

   The mouse pointer may be used in the	main window to change the
   current location of the browser in the directory tree.  We can des-
   cend	deeper into the	tree by	clicking the mouse when	it points to a
   member of the Current Descendents list.  Doing this "moves" the
   browser to this new (one level deeper) location in the directory
   tree.  This causes the main window to be updated as follows:	(1) the
   selected descendent becomes the new Current Location, (2) its descen-
   dents are listed in Current Descendents, and	(3) its	contents are
   displayed in	Current	Information.  Any problems and messages	from the
   directory are displayed in the Directory Status portion of the main
   window.  To move the	browser	up the directory tree (i.e. towards the
   root), click	the mouse pointer on one of the	components of the
   Current Location.  In this way it is	possible to move the browser to
   any location	above its current position (i.e. to any	ancestor) in one
   mouse click.	 Doing this causes the main window to be updated as dis-
   cussed above.  Due to directory-imposed limits, it may not always be
   possible to display all the descendents of the current position.  In
   such	cases (and others) it may be useful to impose a	filter on the

   descendents to be listed.  To do this, position the mouse pointer in
   the Descendent Filter box and use the keyboard to type in the desired
   filter expression.  Typing <RETURN> in this box causes the Current
   Descendents list to be updated using	the new	filter.

   xwp was developed at	the University of Wisconsin - Madison Computer
