NAME:

INTERACTIVE Systems' X.500 DUA

INTERACTIVE Systems' X.500 DSA/DSAM

ABSTRACT:

The INTERACTIVE Systems X.500 DUA and X.500 DSA/DSAM provide a complete
implementation of the OSI X.500 Directory Services User Agent, Directory
Systems Agent, and Directory Systems Agent Manager.  These software
packages allow remote access for Directory Systems Agents and include the
following protocols:

	- Directory System Protocol (DSP)
	- Directory Access Protocol (DAP)
	- Common Management Information Protocol (CMIP)
	- Remote Operations Service Element (ROSE)
	- Association Control Service Element (ACSE)
	- Presentation services
	- BCS Session services
	- DBMS and utilities
	- X/Open XDS API (included in the DUA)

These products will be available in Q3 1991 in source code form only.

COMPLETENESS:

These products provide:
	- a complete implementation of the X.500 distributed Directory
	- a DUA with command line UI and X/Open Directory Services (XDS) API
	- a Multiprocess DSA with integral high performance DBMS
	- remote or local CMIP based DSA management
	- a DSA manager that provides on-line DSA monitoring, control,
	  Directory schema manipulation, and DUA functions
	- Support for all 1988 X.500, 1988 X.400, and MAP/TOP 3.0
	  object types and the capability to add new object types
	- Conformance with NIST, EWOS, and U.K. GOSIP X.500 Directory profiles

INTERNETWORKING ENVIRONMENT:

The INTERACTIVE Systems implementation of X.500 Directory Services
will operate over both RFC 1006 (in TCP/IP Based networks) and over
the Retix Local Area and Wide Area Network services.

HARDWARE PLATFORMS:

These products are available in source code form only and can be ported
to any UNIX-based computers.

SOFTWARE PLATFORMS:

These products operate in the UNIX System V Release 3.2 and System
V Release 4 operating systems.
