LDAP Syntax Description

Overview#

LDAP Syntax Description (DESC) is the description of an LDAP syntax.

The LDAP-specific encoding of a value of this syntax is defined by the <SyntaxDescription> rule in RFC 4512. The LDAP definition for the LDAP Syntax Description syntax is:
( 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.54 DESC 'LDAP Syntax Description' )

The above LDAP definition for the LDAP Syntax Description syntax is itself a legal value of the LDAP Syntax Description syntax.

The ASN.1 type corresponding to the LDAP Syntax Description syntax is defined as follows, assuming EXPLICIT TAGS:

LDAPSyntaxDescription ::= SEQUENCE {
    identifier      OBJECT IDENTIFIER,
    description     DirectoryString { ub-schema } OPTIONAL }
The DirectoryString parameterized ASN.1 type is defined in X.520.

The value of sub-schema (an integer) is implementation defined. A non-normative definition appears in X.520.
