2.1 X500 Distinguished Name

 X500 DNs uniquely identify Address Book objects in the OAB. Each Address Book object MUST have a unique X500 DN value. The server stores the X500 DN in the PidTagEmailAddress property, as specified in [MS-OXOABK] section 2.2.3.14. The following Augmented Backus-Naur Form (ABNF) definition, as specified in [RFC5234], specifies the format of an X500 DN.

 x500-dn    =    org org-unit 0*13(container) object-rdn
                               ; x500-dns are limited to 16 levels
 template-x500-dn = org [org-unit] 0*13(container) object-rdn
 org                      =    "/o=" rdn
 org-unit                 =   "/ou=" rdn
 container                =    "/cn=" rdn
 object-rdn               =    "/cn=" rdn
 rdn                      =    ( non-space-teletex ) / 
                          ( non-space-teletex *62(teletex-char)
                            non-space-teletex )
                          ; rdn values are limited to 64 characters
                          ; the number of rdns is limited to 16 but the
                          ; total cumulative length of rdn characters in
                          ; an x500-dn is limited to 256.
