ISO/IEC ISP 10616 profiles information to be stored within the Directory which is common to a variety of applications. ISO/IEC ISP 12068 augments this information with OSI TP specific information.
Statements and conformance requirements stated in ISO/IEC ISP 10616 for the information profiled by ISO/IEC ISP 10616 are also valid for the OSI TP specific information profiled by this international Standardized Profile.
ISO/IEC ISP 12068 specifies the use of the Directory, for OSI TP, using existing object class and attribute type definitions from the Directory specifications themselves, and additional definitions.
These existing and additional definitions are also intended to support the use of the Directory by users of OSI TP applications.
This part of ISO/IEC ISP 12068 defines those additional information which are needed to retrieve basic addressing information for applications using the OSI TP service.
1.2 Position within the taxonomy
ISO/IEC ISP 12068 is identified in ISO/IEC TR 10000-2 as "Information technology - International Standardized Profile FDl 4 - Directory data definitions - Use of the Directory for OSI TP.
An OSI TP application, by means of its associated DUA, obtains Directory information by accessing directly or indirectly one or more DSAs of the Directory (see figure)
