NAME:
WIN/DS (tm)

ABSTRACT:

WIN/DS is Wollongong's implementation of the OSI Directory Service
defined by the  CCITT in its 1988 "blue-books" recommnedations for 
the X.500 suite of protocols. WIN/DS provides support for a Directory
System Agent (DSA) to maintain the directory database, and handle 
requests; it can also act as a distributed DSA.  WIN/DS provides 
support for all Directory Services operations, object classes and 
attributes.  It also supports the management of the DIT (Directory 
Information Tree), including facilities to control the structure 
rules and ;heir enforcement.  Facilities are also included for 
directory caching.  WIN/DS also includes support for a Directory 
User Agent (DUA).

Details about WIN/DS test sites and pilot projects are CONFIDENTIAL.

COMPLETENESS:

A thorough profile of WIN/DS is not yet available. Wollongong 
follows NIST OIW stable implementors' agreements closely. 

INTEROPERABILITY:

Informal and minimal interoperability tests have been performed against 
early implementations of DG, IBM, Retix, Bull, Siemens and (perhaps) 
others. Results of QUIPU interoperability tests undertaken by the ISODE 
community carry over to WIN/DS. Wollongong plans to use NIST/OSInet 
test suites being developed under Eva Kuiper's leadership as they 
stabilize.
