Hi Barry,

Please find below, the initial draft charter for a new working group at IETF on the trail of the LDAPEXT working group (I don’t know if we can reuse the name of a closed WG).

As it’s been discussed on the ldapext mailing list already, the DBIS work has been left out of the draft charter, but possibly could be integrated within the first work element.

Please let us know if this draft charter is acceptable or needs to be adapted to lead to the creation of the Working Group as soon as possible.

Kind regards,

   Description of Working Group:

   The LDAPExt working group is charter to standardize extensions to
   LDAPv3 (RFC 4510) standards. 
   Some years ago, under the umbrella of a former ldapext WG or as
   individual submissions, several extensions were proposed in the form of
   experimental RFCs and Internet Drafts. Although not finalized, these
   specifications have been implemented by different vendors, with various
   interpretations leading to subtle interoperability issues.
   The working group will do the following:
   Finish existing and implemented Internet Drafts and publish them as
   Proposed Standards:
   * An Approach for Using LDAP as a Network Information Service (RFC
     2307) was published as an Experimental RFC. Soon after, revisions
     appeared as draft-howard-rfc2307bis. The objective is to conclude
     this work in compliance with the IANA guide-lines, but preserving
     interoperability with existing implementations.
   * Define an information model and protocol to support Password Policy
     for LDAP Directories, based on previous work described in
     draft-behera-ldap-password-policy, considering the issues raised in
     draft-zeilenga-ldap-passwords but preserving interoperability with
     existing implementations.

  Define new extensions:
  * An inetOrgPerson 2.0 schema to aggregate the needs and changes for
    entries representing Persons in a Directory.
  * Resolve issues with the representation of Groups in LDAP.

  * Define utility schema descriptions widely used:
    draft-stroeder-namedobject and draft-stroeder-mailboxrelatedobject
  * Define an informational document that describes the various
    representations of hashed password values in the 'userPassword'
    attribute. draft-stroeder-hashed-userpassword-values

   Goals and Milestones:

   Jan 2016    Issue new versions of Groups in LDAP, Utility Schemas and
               Hashed Password Values.
   Apr 2016    Issue first revision Internet-Draft of inetOrgPerson 2.0.
               Issue first revision Internet-Draft on RFC 2307 revision.
               Issue first revision Internet-Draft on password policy.
   Jul 2016    Submit Groups in LDAP, Utility Schemas and
               Hashed Password Values to IESG for publication as an RFC.
   Oct 2016    Submit inetOrgPerson 2.0 schema to IESG for publication as
               an RFC.
               Achieve consensus on RFC 2307 Revision and Password Policy
               for LDAP.
   Jan 2017    Submit RFC 2307 Revision and Password Policy to IESG for
               consideration as a Proposed Standard.
