DirectoryStringFirstComponentMatch is a EQUALITY MatchingRule that compares an Assertion Value of the Directory String syntax to an Attribute Value of a syntax whose corresponding ASN.1 type is a SEQUENCE with a mandatory first component of the DirectoryString ASN.1 type.


the assertion syntax of this MatchingRule differs from the attribute syntax of attributes for which this is the equality matching rule

DirectoryStringFirstComponentMatch evaluates to TRUE if and only if the Assertion Value matches the first component of the Attribute Value using the rules of caseIgnoreMatch.
