NAME DIXIE University of Michigan LAST MODIFIED November, 1991 KEYWORDS Available via FTP, DUA Light Weight Client, Free, Source, UNIX, Mul- tiple Vendor Platform, Needs ISODE ABSTRACT The DIXIE protocol is used to give X.500 access to platforms that have only TCP/IP access. The DIXIE server is an intermediate proto- col server that communicates with Internet clients on one side using a text-based UDP/TCP protocol and an X.500 DSA on the other side using DAP. The protocol is fully described in RFC 1246. A subset of the X.500 DAP is exported to the clients through the DIXIE protocol. There is a DIXIE API provided in the form of a library of C-callable routines. The DIXIE protocol and server are being used by the following products/projects: UD, a simple command line white pages DUA for Unix machines (dis- tributed with the DIXIE server) maX.500, a white pages DUA for the Macintosh (available from the same place as the DIXIE server) Network monitoring of DSAs by our Network Operations Center Lookup and display of caller identification based on telephone caller ID (using ISDN). COMPLETENESS The DIXIE protocol does not support access to all X.500 features and operations. All DAP operations except Abandon are supported. Gen- eral searches (including multiple component searches) are supported. The DIXIE protocol supports none and simple authentication. A subset of the service controls are supported.
INTEROPERABILITY The current implementation of the DIXIE server works with the QUIPU DSA and DAP library. PILOT CONNECTIVITY The DIXIE server has been tested in the Internet and PARADISE pilots. It provides full DUA Connectivity subject to the limitations dis- cussed above under completeness. BUGS There are no known outstanding bugs. But reports should be sent to email@example.com. CAVEATS AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS None, aside from those mentioned above under completeness. INTERNETWORKING ENVIRONMENT DIXIE clients use TCP or UDP to communicate with the DIXIE server. The DIXIE server uses RFC-1006 with TCP/IP to communicate with the DSA, though other transport mechanisms for DSA communication should be possible. HARDWARE PLATFORMS The DIXIE server is known to run on Sun 3, Sun 4, and DEC 3100 plat- forms. It should run on any UNIX platform. The DIXIE library is known to run on the same platforms, and also on the Macintosh. SOFTWARE PLATFORMS The DIXIE server and library is known to run under SunOS 3.5, SunOS 4.1.1, Ultrix 4.1 and 4.2. The DIXIE library also runs on the Macin- tosh System Software 6 or later. AVAILABILITY This software is openly available. It may be obtained by anonymous FTP from terminator.cc.umich.edu in the directory ~ftp/x500. Documen- tation on the DIXIE protocol is provided along with the source code, which includes source for the DIXIE server, DIXIE library, and the UD client.

NAME DS-520 DS-521 Retix LAST MODIFIED November, 1991 KEYWORDS API, Commercially Available, DSA/DUA, DUA Connectivity, DSA Connec- tivity, Multiple Vendor Platforms, OSI Transport, RFC-1006, Source, UNIX ABSTRACT DS-520 X.500 Distributed Directory Services for UNIX System V and DS-521 X.500 Directory User Agent (DUA) for UNIX System V form an integral part of the Retix OSI Networking Products family. Designed for systems vendors, public carriers, and other OEMs, DS-520 is a complete high-performance implementation of X.500 in source code form, including a DUA, DSA Manager (DSAM), and DSA. DS-521 represents a subset of this product offering. It provides the DUA portal into the directory, which, for example, meets the needs of software vendors who plan to provide application packages with X.500 Directory interaction capabilities. Within these two offerings, the DUA possesses two forms of interface. The first form, the DUA with User Interface, provides an interactive character-based user inter- face for users of Directory services. The user agent provides access to the Directory via basic Directory service requests. The second form, the DUA with Programmatic Interface provides a standardized programmatic interface to application programs that must access Directory information. The interface is conformant to the X/Open Object Management (XOM) and X/Open Directory Services (XDS) stan- dards. This component provides all functionality related to Directory access and general OSI services down to the session layer. The DSAM provides an interactive character oriented user interface to a Direc- tory administrator. The DSAM provides management functions either local to or remote from a DSA. Both the DUA and the DSAM are useful in the training, management, and manipulation of Directory entries maintaining operational and user attribute information. The DSA main- tains Directory database information and provides users the ability to read/compare, modify, search, and manage entries within the data- base. It maintains all or fragments of the Directory Information Base (DIB) and provides abstract service ports for DUAs and DSAs over DAP and DSP protocols respectively.
COMPLETENESS DS-520 represents a complete implementation of the 1988 X.500 Recom- mendations with the exception of strong authentication as outlined in X.509. It is conformant to NIST, EWOS, and UK GOSIP Directory pro- files. It provides session through application layer protocol support and hence incorporates ROSE, ACSE, Presentation, and Session within its product stack. In addition to including all the attribute types, syntaxes, and object classes defined in X.520 and X.521, the DS-520 includes support for those specified in the 1988 X.400 Recommendation X.402, Annex A. Remote on-line management of the DSA is supported by means of Network Management Forum CMIP. DS-521 represents a complete implementation of the X/Open Object Management (OM) and X/Open Directory Services (XDS) standards. It also incorporates session through application layer protocol support and thus includes ROSE, ACSE, Presentation, and Session within its product stack. INTEROPERABILITY The DS-520 has been tested to interoperate with Banyan (DAP), CDC (DSP), IBM, ICL, OSIWare, Nixdorff, Unisys (DSP), Wollongong (DAP), and 3-Com (DSP). The DS-521 subset has undergone no separate interoperability testing. PILOT CONNECTIVITY DSA Connectivity provided by the DS-520: The DSA provides complete support for the X.511 Abstract Service Definition, the directoryAc- cessAC and the directorySystemAC defined in the X.519 Protocol Specifications, and the Distributed Directory defined in the X.518 Procedures for the Distributed Directory. It supports all the object classes, attribute types, and attribute syntaxes defined in X.520 and X.521. It does not support the Internet DSP however. DUA Connectivity provided by both the DS-520 and DS-521: The DUA pro- vides complete support for the X.511 Abstract Service Definition and the directoryAccessAC defined in the X.519 Protocol Specifications. The DUA with User Interface supports only a subset of the X.500 attributes and object classes defined in X.520 and X.521. The DUA with Programmatic Interface, however, does support all the object classes, attribute types, and attribute syntaxes defined in these two recommendations.
BUGS Product Action Requests (PARs) stemming externally from customers and internally from customer service and quality assurance engineers are generated and published in the form of weekly reports. A description and status of these PARs are provided to customers possessing software maintenance agreements. CAVEATS AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS DS-520 and DS-521 are source code products ported to UNIX System V Release 3 and 4. Makefiles to generate the system are provided for the AT&T System V, SCO, and Interactive UNIX systems. INTERNETWORKING ENVIRONMENT DS-520 and DS-521 offer two main compile time configuration options and hence internetworking configurations. In the first of these, they interface to the UNIX System V Transport Library Interface (TLI). The TLI provides a path between the session layer of a UNIX OSI application process and an OSI transport provider installed in the UNIX kernel. The latter transport provider may take the form of a Retix Unix LAN (LT-610) or WAN (WT-325) transport product. The second main option utilizes the UNIX System V ACSE/Presentation Library interface (APLI and the A/P Library), which provides OSI ACSE and Presentation layer services. The Retix AP-240 Presentation syntax manager product serves to map the standard Retix Presentation layer interface to the AT&T APLI. The APLI upper layers services may be provided by the Retix UL-220 product. UL-220 is the Retix implementa- tion of the AT&T Open Networking Platform Upper Layer Services module and includes the A/P library, as well as the OSI ACSE, Presentation, and Session services. DS-520 and DS-521 may also run on top of the TCP/IP stack by means of the Retix MP-120 product. MP-120 is a STREAMS based driver that implements RFC-1006 and thus allows OSI applications to run over a network based on the Internet suite of protocols (TCP/IP). Its main function provides a conversion between the TCP stream to the data packets required by OSI Transport Class 0 protocol and vice versa. As part of this process, it converts TCP/IP 32-bit addresses to hex values for use with OSI applications.
HARDWARE PLATFORMS Being source code products ported to the UNIX System V Release 3 and 4 operating system environment, DS-520 and DS-521 are hardware plat- form independent. They currently both have sample portations and test configurations on various Intel 80386 platforms running Unix System V Release 3 and 4. SOFTWARE PLATFORMS Currently, DS-520 and DS-521 include reference implementations for the AT&T System V Release 4, SCO UNIX System V/386 Version 3.2.2, and the Interactive UNIX System V/386 Version 2.2 operating systems. Raima Corporation's db_Vista III Version 3.1 serves as the database engine for the Directory product.

NAME POD Brunel University LAST MODIFIED November, 1991 KEYWORDS Available via FTAM, Available via FTP, DUA Only, Free, Included in ISODE, Limited Functionality, Multiple Vendor Platforms, Needs ISODE, RFC-1006, Source, UNIX ABSTRACT POD (POpup Directory) is an X.500 DUA interface for the X Window Sys- tem. POD is a first attempt at a multiwindow directory tool. It offers a simplified interfaces to the basic X.500 operations of read, search, list and modify entry. POD does not provide any sophisticated access to the DSA. Operations are performed synchronously. The Directory is thus presented as is, i.e. a hierarchical tree of information, with the user required to "navigate" the DIT in order to locate required information. POD is available as part of the ISODE release from version 6.0 onwards. COMPLETENESS 88 standard: strong authentication not implemented INTEROPERABILITY Believed to be compliant, though untested. PILOT CONNECTIVITY DUA Connectivity: POD is in use in many directory pilots, certainly including PARADISE and the Internet. BUGS Bugs to email@example.com

NAME psiwp Performance Systems International Inc. LAST MODIFIED July, 1991 KEYWORDS Available via FTP, DUA Light Weight Client, DUA Only, Free, Limited Functionality, Macintosh, Needs ISODE, Source ABSTRACT psiwp is a Macintosh Front End to White Pages service. It is a graphical user interface implementing a partial-DUA. It is based on the ISODE QUIPU X.500 implementation and the Directory Assistance Protocol (DAP). psiwp is a Macintosh application tailored specifically to provide easy access to the Directory for the purposes of performing White Pages searches. Implements User-Friendly Naming scheme developed in IETF OSI-DS Working Group. psiwp implements a Directory Assistance Protocol (DAP) client. COMPLETENESS Compliant with X.500 standards to the extent that the QUIPU implemen- tation is. INTEROPERABILITY Successfully interoperates with QUIPU DSAs PILOT CONNECTIVITY Being used in the White Pages Pilot Project. BUGS Support is available (for registered users of psiwp only) from email@example.com.
CAVEATS AND GENERAL LIMITATIONS psiwp is not a general-purpose DUA. It was designed to be a special- purpose front-end for performing White Pages searches and thus, in the interests of simplification, does not provide the full range of functionality supported by the X.500 standard. A Directory Assistance server (available as part of the ISODE distribution) must also be run by sites that do not want to run psiwp against either of the two White Pages Pilot Project service machines, wp1.psi.net and wp2.psi.net. INTERNETWORKING ENVIRONMENT Runs on Macintoshes as a Finder or MultiFinder application. HARDWARE PLATFORMS Runs on Macintoshes that support MacTCP. Requires an ethernet board or AppleTalk connectivity. At least 1MB of memory is required, and while psiwp will run on most forms of Macintoshes, a Mac-II is recom- mended. SOFTWARE PLATFORMS Requires MacTCP 1.0 or later, and Finder (or Multifinder) 6.x (Finder 7.0 WILL NOT WORK). Requires ISODE Version 6.8 or later. AVAILABILITY psiwp is shareware available for anonymous ftp from uu.psi.com [220.127.116.11] in pilot/PSIWP.Hqx. A nominal fee is charged upon registration as a PSIWP user. Source code to the psiwp application may be licensed from PSI Inc. as part of PSI's Software Source Distribution (SSD). Email to firstname.lastname@example.org will elicit an automatic response containing information on the SSD.
