Abstract

This document defines a schema, object classes and attributes, for printers and printer services, for use with directories that support Lightweight Directory Access Protocol v3 (LDAP-TS). This document is based on the printer attributes listed in Appendix E of Internet Printing Protocol/1.1 (IPP) (RFC 2911). A few additional printer attributes are based on definitions in the Printer MIB (RFC 1759).

1. Introduction

This document defines several object classes to provide Lightweight Directory Access Protocol v3 [LDAP-TS] applications with flexible options in defining printer information using LDAP schema. Classes are provided for defining directory entries with common printer information as well as for extending existing directory entries with SLPv2 [RFC2608], IPP/1.1 [RFC2911], and LPR [RFC1179] specific information. The schema defined in this document is based on the printer attributes listed in Appendix E 'Generic Directory Schema' of Internet Printing Protocol/1.1 (IPP) [RFC2911]. A few additional printer attributes are based on definitions in the Printer MIB [RFC1759]. The schema defined in this document is technically aligned with the stable IANA-registered 'service:printer:' v2.0 template [SLP-PRT], for compatibility with already deployed Service Location Protocol (SLPv2) [RFC2608] service advertising and discovery infrastructure. The attribute syntaxes are technically aligned with the 'service:printer:' v2.0 template - therefore simpler types are sometimes used (for example, 'DirectoryString' [RFC2252] rather than 'labeledURI' [RFC2079] for the 'printer-uri' attribute). Please send comments directly to the authors at the addresses listed in Section 13 "Authors' Addresses".

1.1. Rationale for using DirectoryString Syntax

The attribute syntax 'DirectoryString' (UTF-8 [RFC2279]) defined in [RFC2252] is specified for several groups of string attributes that are defined in this document: 1) URI - printer-uri, printer-xri-supported, printer-more-info The UTF-8 encoding is forward compatible with any future deployment of (UTF-8 based) IRI (Internationalized Resource Identifiers) [W3C-IRI] currently being developed by the W3C Internationalization Working Group. 2) Description - printer-name, printer-location, printer-info, printer-make-and-model
ToP   noToC   RFC3712 - Page 4
       The UTF-8 encoding supports descriptions in any language,
       conformant with the "IETF Policy on Character Sets and Languages"
       [RFC2277].

       Note:  The printer-natural-language-configured attribute contains
       a language tag [RFC3066] for these description attributes (for
       example, to support text-to-speech conversions).

   3)  Keyword
       - printer-compression-supported, printer-finishings-supported,
       printer-media-supported, printer-media-local-supported,
       printer-print-quality-supported

       The UTF-8 encoding is compatible with the current IPP/1.1
       [RFC2911] definition of the equivalent attributes, most of which
       have the IPP/1.1 union syntax 'keyword or name'.  The keyword
       attributes defined in this document are extensible by
       site-specific or vendor-specific 'names' which behave like new
       'keywords'

       Note:  In IPP/1.1, each value is strongly typed over-the-wire as
       either 'keyword' or 'name'.  This union selector is not preserved
       in the definitions of these equivalent LDAP attributes.

1.2. Rationale for using caseIgnoreMatch

The EQUALITY matching rule 'caseIgnoreMatch' defined in [RFC2252] is specified for several groups of string attributes that are defined in this document: 1) URI These URI attributes specify EQUALITY matching with 'caseIgnoreMatch' (rather than with 'caseExactMatch') in order to conform to the spirit of [RFC2396], which requires case insensitive matching on the host part of a URI versus case sensitive matching on the remainder of a URI. These URI attributes follow existing practice of supporting case insensitive equality matching for host names in the associatedDomain attribute defined in [RFC1274]. Either equality matching rule choice would be a compromise: a) case sensitive whole URI matching may lead to false negative matches and has been shown to be fragile (given deployed client applications that 'pretty up' host names displayed and transferred in URI);
ToP   noToC   RFC3712 - Page 5
       b) case insensitive whole URI matching may lead to false positive
       matches, although it is a dangerous practice to publish URI that
       differ only by case (for example, in the path elements).

   2)  Description

       Case insensitive equality matching is more user-friendly for
       description attributes.

   3)  Keyword

       Case insensitive equality matching is more user-friendly for
       keyword attributes.

1.3. Rationale for using caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch

The SUBSTR matching rule 'caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch' defined in [RFC2252] is specified for several groups of string attributes that are defined in this document: 1) URI These URI attributes follow existing practice of supporting case insensitive equality matching for host names in the associatedDomain attribute defined in [RFC1274]. 2) Description Support for case insensitive substring matching is more user-friendly for description attributes. 3) Keyword Support for case insensitive substring matching is more user-friendly for keyword attributes.

2. Terminology and Conventions

The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in BCP 14 [RFC2119]. Schema definitions are provided using LDAPv3 [LDAP-TS] description formats. Definitions provided here are formatted (line wrapped) for readability.
ToP   noToC   RFC3712 - Page 6

3. Definition of Object Classes

We define the following LDAP object classes for use with both generic printer related information and services specific to SLPv2 [RFC2608], IPP/1.1 [RFC2911], and LPR [RFC1179]. slpServicePrinter - auxiliary class for SLP registered printers printerAbstract - abstract class for all printer classes printerService - structural class for printers printerServiceAuxClass - auxiliary class for printers printerIPP - auxiliary class for IPP printers printerLPR - auxiliary class for LPR printers The following are some examples of how applications may choose to use these classes when creating directory entries: 1) Use printerService for directory entries containing common printer information. 2) Use both printerService and slpServicePrinter for directory entries containing common printer information for SLP registered printers. 3) Use printerService, printerLPR and printerIPP for directory entries containing common printer information for printers that support both LPR and IPP. 4) Use printerServiceAuxClass and object classes not defined by this document for directory entries containing common printer information. In this example, printerServiceAuxClass is used for extending other structural classes defining printer information with common printer information defined in this document. Refer to Section 4 for definition of attribute types referenced by these object classes. We use attribute names instead of OIDs in object class definitions for clarity. Some attribute names described in [RFC2911] have been prefixed with 'printer-' as recommended in [RFC2926] and [SLP-PRT].

3.1. slpServicePrinter

( 1.3.18.0.2.6.254 NAME 'slpServicePrinter' DESC 'Service Location Protocol (SLP) information.' AUXILIARY SUP slpService )
ToP   noToC   RFC3712 - Page 7
   This auxiliary class defines Service Location Protocol (SLPv2)
   [RFC2608] specific information.  It should be used with a structural
   class such as printerService.  It may be used to create new or extend
   existing directory entries with SLP 'service:printer' abstract
   service type information as defined in [SLP-PRT].  This object class
   is derived from 'slpService', the parent class for all SLP services,
   defined in [RFC2926].

3.2. printerAbstract

( 1.3.18.0.2.6.258 NAME 'printerAbstract' DESC 'Printer related information.' ABSTRACT SUP top MAY ( printer-name $ printer-natural-language-configured $ printer-location $ printer-info $ printer-more-info $ printer-make-and-model $ printer-multiple-document-jobs-supported $ printer-charset-configured $ printer-charset-supported $ printer-generated-natural-language-supported $ printer-document-format-supported $ printer-color-supported $ printer-compression-supported $ printer-pages-per-minute $ printer-pages-per-minute-color $ printer-finishings-supported $ printer-number-up-supported $ printer-sides-supported $ printer-media-supported $ printer-media-local-supported $ printer-resolution-supported $ printer-print-quality-supported $ printer-job-priority-supported $ printer-copies-supported $ printer-job-k-octets-supported $ printer-current-operator $ printer-service-person $ printer-delivery-orientation-supported $ printer-stacking-order-supported $ printer-output-features-supported ) ) This abstract class defines printer information. It is a base class for deriving other printer related classes, such as, but not limited to, classes defined in this document. It defines a common set of printer attributes that are not specific to any one type of service, protocol or operating system.
ToP   noToC   RFC3712 - Page 8

3.3. printerService

( 1.3.18.0.2.6.255 NAME 'printerService' DESC 'Printer information.' STRUCTURAL SUP printerAbstract MAY ( printer-uri $ printer-xri-supported ) ) This structural class defines printer information. It is derived from class printerAbstract and thus inherits common printer attributes. This class can be used with or without auxiliary classes to define printer information. Auxiliary classes can be used to extend the common printer information with protocol, service or operating system specific information. Note: When extending other structural classes with auxiliary classes, printerService should not be used.

3.4. printerServiceAuxClass

( 1.3.18.0.2.6.257 NAME 'printerServiceAuxClass' DESC 'Printer information.' AUXILIARY SUP printerAbstract MAY ( printer-uri $ printer-xri-supported ) ) This auxiliary class defines printer information. It is derived from class printerAbstract and thus inherits common printer attributes. This class should be used with a structural class.

3.5. printerIPP

( 1.3.18.0.2.6.256 NAME 'printerIPP' DESC 'Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) information.' AUXILIARY SUP top MAY ( printer-ipp-versions-supported $ printer-multiple-document-jobs-supported ) )
ToP   noToC   RFC3712 - Page 9
   This auxiliary class defines Internet Printing Protocol (IPP/1.1)
   [RFC2911] information.  It should be used with a structural class
   such as printerService.  It is used to extend structural classes with
   IPP specific printer information.

3.6. printerLPR

( 1.3.18.0.2.6.253 NAME 'printerLPR' DESC 'LPR information.' AUXILIARY SUP top MUST ( printer-name ) MAY ( printer-aliases) ) This auxiliary class defines LPR [RFC1179] information. It should be used with a structural class such as printerService. It is used to identify directory entries that support LPR.

4. Definition of Attribute Types

The following attribute types are referenced by the object classes defined in Section 3. The following attribute types reference syntax OIDs defined in Section 6 of [RFC2252] (see Section 5 'Definition of Syntaxes' below). The following attribute types reference matching rule names (instead of OIDs) for clarity (see Section 6 below). For optional attributes, if the printer information is not known, the attribute value should not be set. In the following definitions, referenced matching rules are defined in Section 8 of [RFC2252] and/or Section 2 of [RFC3698] (see Section 6 'Definition of Matching Rules' below). The following table is a summary of the attribute names defined by this document and their corresponding names from [RFC2911]. Some attribute names described in [RFC2911] have been prefixed with 'printer-' as recommended in [RFC2926], to address the flat namespace for LDAP identifiers.

4.1. printer-uri

( 1.3.18.0.2.4.1140 NAME 'printer-uri' DESC 'A URI supported by this printer.' EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 SINGLE-VALUE ) If the printer-xri-supported LDAP attribute is implemented, then this printer-uri value should be listed in printer-xri-supported. Values of URI should conform to [RFC2396], although URI schemes may be defined which do not conform to [RFC2396] (see [RFC2717] and [RFC2718]). Note: LDAP application clients should not attempt to use malformed URI values read from this attribute. LDAP administrative clients should not write malformed URI values into this attribute. Note: For SLP registered printers, the LDAP printer-uri attribute should be set to the value of the SLP-registered URL of the printer, for interworking with SLPv2 [RFC2608] service discovery. Note: See Sections 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 for rationale for design choices.

4.2. printer-xri-supported

( 1.3.18.0.2.4.1107 NAME 'printer-xri-supported' DESC 'The unordered list of XRI (extended resource identifiers) supported by this printer.' EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch SUBSTR caseIgnoreSubstringsMatch SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15 ) A list of XRI (extended resource identifiers) supported by this printer. Each value of this list should consist of a URI (uniform resource identifier) followed by (optional) authentication and security fields. Values of URI should conform to [RFC2396], although URI schemes may be defined which do not conform to [RFC2396] (see [RFC2717] and [RFC2718]).
ToP   noToC   RFC3712 - Page 12
   Note:  LDAP application clients should not attempt to use malformed
   URI values read from this attribute.  LDAP administrative clients
   should not write malformed URI values into this attribute.

   Note:  This attribute is based on 'printer-uri-supported', 'uri-
   authentication-supported', and `'uri-security-supported' (called the
   'Three Musketeers' because they are parallel ordered attributes)
   defined in IPP/1.1 [RFC2911].  This attribute unfolds those IPP/1.1
   attributes and thus avoids the ordering (and same number of values)
   constraints of the IPP/1.1 separate attributes.

   Defined keywords for fields include:

       'uri' (IPP 'printer-uri-supported')
       'auth' (IPP 'uri-authentication-supported')
       'sec' (IPP 'uri-security-supported')

   A missing 'auth' field should be interpreted to mean 'none'.  Per
   IPP/1.1 [RFC2911], defined values of the 'auth' field include:

       'none' (no authentication for this URI)
       'requesting-user-name' (from operation request)
       'basic' (HTTP/1.1 Basic [RFC2617])
       'digest' (HTTP/1.1 Basic, [RFC2617])
       'certificate' (from certificate)

   A missing 'sec' field should be interpreted to mean 'none'.  Per
   IPP/1.1 [RFC2911], defined values of the 'sec' field include:

       'none' (no security for this URI)
       'ssl3' (Netscape SSL3)
       'tls' (IETF TLS/1.0, [RFC2246])

   Each XRI field should be delimited by '<'.  For example:

       'uri=ipp://foo.com< auth=digest< sec=tls<'
       'uri=lpr://bar.com< auth=none< sec=none<'
       'uri=mailto:printer@foobar.com< auth=none< sec=none<'

   Note:  The syntax and delimiter for this attribute are aligned with
   the equivalent attribute in the 'service:printer:' v2.0 template
   [SLP-PRT].  Whitespace is permitted after (but not before) the
   delimiter '<'.  Note that this delimiter differs from printer-
   resolution-supported.

   Note:  See Sections 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 for rationale for design
   choices.

8. Internationalization Considerations

All text string attributes defined in this document of syntax [RFC2279], as required by [RFC2252]. A language tag [RFC3066] for all of the text string attributes defined in this document is contained in the printer-natural- language-configured attribute.
ToP   noToC   RFC3712 - Page 29
   Therefore, all object classes defined in this document conform to the
   "IETF Policy on Character Sets and Languages" [RFC2277].

9. Security Considerations

See [RFC2829] for detailed guidance on authentication methods for LDAP. See [RFC2830] for detailed guidance of using TLS/1.0 [RFC2246] to supply connection confidentiality and data integrity for LDAP sessions. As with any LDAP schema, it is important to protect specific entries and attributes with the appropriate access control. It is particularly important that only administrators can modify entries defined in this LDAP printer schema. Otherwise, an LDAP client might be fooled into diverting print service requests from the original printer (or spooler) to a malicious intruder's host system, thus exposing the information in printed documents. For additional security considerations of deploying printers in an IPP environment, see Section 8 of [RFC2911].
