Due to changes made to the definition of a Certificate through time, no LDAP-specific encoding is defined for this syntax. Values of this syntax SHOULD be encoded using Distinguished Encoding Rules (DER) X.690 and MUST only be transferred using the ;Binary Encoding Option RFC 4522; that is, by requesting and returning values using attribute descriptions such as "userCertificate;binary".

As values of this syntax contain digitally signed data, values of this syntax and the form of each value MUST be preserved as presented.

The LDAP definition for the Certificate LDAPSyntaxes is:

  • OID:
  • DESC: 'X.509 Certificate'
