X.500 Implementation Survey NAME: HP X.500 Distributed Directory Software <Product To Be Named> 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 standard, 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 necessary 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: Interoperability testing will be undertaker as new X.500 products are introduced into the market. BUGS: No major ones at this time. CAVEATS and GENERAL LIMITATIONS: This is pilot software for organizations who wish to learn about HP's X.500 offering.
