A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. This draft is a work item of the Integrated Directory Services Working Group of the IETF. Title : NAMING PLAN FOR AN INTERNET DIRECTORY SERVICE Author(s) : A. Grimstad, R. Huber, S. Sataluri Filename : draft-ietf-ids-dirnaming-00.txt Pages : 11 Date : 11/25/1996 Application of the conventional X.500 approach to naming has, in the experience of the authors, proven to be an obstacle to the creation of directory services. We propose a new directory naming plan that leverages the strengths of the most popular and successful Internet naming schemes for naming objects in a hierarchical directory. This plan can, we believe, facilitate the creation of an Internet White Pages Service (IWPS) by overcoming the problems encountered by those using the conventional recommended X.500 approach to naming. Internet-Drafts are available by anonymous FTP. Login with the username "anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address. After logging in, type "cd internet-drafts" and then "get draft-ietf-ids-dirnaming-00.txt". A URL for the Internet-Draft is: ftp://ds.internic.net/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ids-dirnaming-00.txt Internet-Drafts directories are located at: o Africa: ftp.is.co.za o Europe: nic.nordu.net ftp.nis.garr.it o Pacific Rim: munnari.oz.au o US East Coast: ds.internic.net o US West Coast: ftp.isi.edu Internet-Drafts are also available by mail. Send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body type: "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ids-dirnaming-00.txt". NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE" command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on how to manipulate these messages. Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the Internet-Draft.
