6 Representations of DN

DN can be encoded and represented in many ways. The present document specifies two representations. Future IRP work may specify other representations.

  • DN is encoded using ASN.1/BER encoding scheme. Traditional TMN compliant systems use this encoding scheme. IRP CMIP Solution Set compliant systems shall use this scheme. Since this scheme is documented in ITU-T X.500 Recommendation [2], their specification is not repeated here.
  • DN is encoded using string representation. The present document contains the specification of this scheme.
