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.

   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 )

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 )

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 )

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):

    MUST (
        cn $ objectClass $ sn
    )
    MAY (
        description $ destinationIndicator $ facsimileTelephoneNumber $
        internationaliSDNNumber $ l $ ou $ physicalDeliveryOfficeName $
        postalAddress $ postalCode $ postOfficeBox $
        preferredDeliveryMethod $ registeredAddress $ seeAlso $
        st $ street $ telephoneNumber $ teletexTerminalIdentifier $
        telexNumber $ title $ userPassword $ x121Address
    )

4.  Example of an inetOrgPerson Entry

   The following example is expressed using the LDIF notation defined in
   [LDIF].

   labeledURI: http://www.siroe.com/users/bjensen My Home Page

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.

9.3.  Matching Rules

9.3.1.  Matching rules from RFC 2252

   Note that the original definition of many of these matching rules can
   be found in X.520.

    ( 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.
