                            Names

The OSI Directory uses distinguished names as the primary keys to
entries in the directory.  Distinguished Names are encoded in ASN.1.
When a distinguished name is communicated between to users not using a
directory protocol (e.g., in a mail message), there is a need to have a

1775   Crocker   Mar 95    To Be "On" the Internet

The Internet permits different levels of access for consumers and
providers of service.  The nature of those differences is quite
important in the capabilities They afford.  Hence, it is appropriate to
