Work in Progress

 < Day Day Up > 

In Chapter 4 of this book, I explained in detail the work on the LDAP protocol that is underway and the standardization of the LDAP protocol by various Working Groups. There are still a number of topics that are not yet standardized, e.g., the replication protocol. This section is intended mainly to complete the list of RFCs with the drafts. It contains the description of the Working Group as it appears on the Web site.

At the time of this writing, there are two Working Groups hosted on the IETF Web site ( LDAP (v3) Revision (ldapbis) and LDAP Duplication/Replication/Update Protocols (ldup). There had been a third Working Group dealing with LDAP extensions (ldapext), but it has been closed. However, the mailing list of Idapext is still alive, and you can subscribe to it.

I will give you a short description of what each of these groups is doing; for more information, visit the IETF Web site at
