SYNTAX or LDAPSyntaxes

Each AttributeType stored in a LDAP directory, whose values may be transferred in the LDAP protocol, has a defined SYNTAX that constrains the structure and format of its values.

The comparison semantics for values of a syntax are not part of the SYNTAX definition but are instead provided through separately defined Matching Rules. Matching rules specify an argument, an assertion value, which also has a defined SYNTAX.

Defiend in RFC 4517#
