Hi Tony, Thanks a lot for the information. As you know, LDAP is a dear child of X.500 and with the seventh edition, we have interworking with LDAP. X.500 vendors market their products as IdM system. I once went through a large number of IdM implementations and they all used directory, mostly LDAP and in particular Microsoft's Active Directory. I have always tried to tell people that directory, including X.509, is IdM. People do not listen, so I have given up and concentrate on my question, where we have our plate full, anyway. I will have to get on the SCIM list.

It's very active and they are ramping up their cloud IdM work for the meeting next week in Paris. It's worth noting that they are proposing a LDAP binding. Lots of new cloud security and IdM work. SG13 will have its hands full in collaborating. best, tony --- 47,55 ---- identities as part of the work adopted by the working group. The group will use, as starting points, the following drafts in the following ways: ! draft-scim-use-cases-00 as the initial use cases for SCIM, ! draft-scim-core-schema-00 as the schema specification, ! draft-scim-api-00 as the protocol specification, draft-XXX-scim-saml-binding-00 for binding the SCIM schema to SAML, and draft-XXX-scim-ldap-binding-00 for binding the SCIM schema to LDAP.
