This is a specification of Microsoft extensions to the Directory Services Markup Language (DSML) 2.0 Protocol specified in [DSML2]. These extensions are referred to as SOAP session extensions (SSE) in this specification. They are built on top of SOAP request/response bindings specified by DSML and they make it possible to maintain state information across multiple request/response operations.
Sections 1.8, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative and can contain the terms MAY, SHOULD, MUST, MUST NOT, and SHOULD NOT as defined in RFC 2119. Sections 1.5 and 1.9 are also normative but cannot contain those terms. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
