Overview#DistinguishedNameMatch is an EQUALITY Matching Rule compares an assertion value whose corresponding ASN.1 type is Distinguished Name (DN) using the DN Syntax.
The rule evaluates to TRUE if and only if all of these evaluate to TRUE:
- the attribute value and the assertion value have the same number of Relative Distinguished Names
- corresponding Relative Distinguished Names (by position) are the same
- each RDN component Attribute Value Assertion (AVA) the EQUALITY Matching Rule of each RDN is applied to each Attribute Value Assertion and the Case Sensitivity of the EQUALITY Matching Rule for each AttributeType
If one or more of the Attribute Value Assertion comparisons evaluate to Undefined and the remaining Attribute Value Assertion comparisons return True then the DistinguishedNameMatch rule evaluates to Undefined.
The LDAP definition for the DistinguishedNameMatch rule is defined in RFC 4517
( 18.104.22.168 NAME 'distinguishedNameMatch' SYNTAX 22.214.171.124.4.1.14126.96.36.199.12 )
