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 [RFC2119]. Sections 1.5 and 1.9 are also normative but do not contain those terms. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
