This document describes a procedure for mapping between Service
Location Protocol (SLP) service advertisements and lightweight
directory access protocol (LDAP) descriptions of services.  The
document covers two aspects of the mapping.  One aspect is mapping
between SLP service type templates and LDAP directory schema.  Because
the SLP service type template grammar is relatively simple, mapping
from service type templates to LDAP types is straightforward.  Mapping
in the other direction is straightforward if the attributes are
restricted to use just a few of the syntaxes defined in RFC 2252. If
arbitrary ASN.1 types occur in the schema, then the mapping is more
complex and may even be impossible.  The second aspect is
representation of service information in an LDAP directory.  The
recommended representation simplifies interoperability with SLP by
allowing SLP directory agents to backend into LDAP directory
servers. The resulting system allows service advertisements to
propagate easily between SLP and LDAP.
