Accepts and parses strings in the format of an RFC 2253 Distinguished Name, and optionally normalizes them for direct comparison of equivalency.

This project is a .NET Standard 1.3 solution to parse LDAP (or X.509) Distinguished Names and optionally normalize them so that two (or more) Distinguished Names can be compared to one another for equivalency.

Closely follows RFC 2253 for parsing. Parses both LDAPv2 and LDAPv3, but normalizes output for LDAPv3.

Instructions for Use

  1. Supply a Distinguished Name to be parsed to the DistinguishedName.Create(string distinguishedName) method
  2. Call the Normalized() method on the returned object to normalize the internal structures to be strictly compliant to RFC 2253
  3. Do the same two calls for another Distinguished Name
  4. To compare the two Distinguished Names for equivalency, compare the DistinguishedName objects' ToString() results to one another

Released under the MIT License.

This project was originally released targeting .NET Core 2.0.
RFC 2253 Distinguished Name Parser Version 1.1.0 now targets .NET Standard 1.3 to make it compatible with a larger number of projects.  Refer to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/standard/net-standard for more details.

Version 1.1.2 fixes a bug that dropped a trailing space in an attribute value that was properly escaped.

Version 1.1.0 fixes a bug in the `ToString()` method (commas were missing), which may be a breaking change for some implementors.

Version 1.1.0 also fixes another bug in the `ToString()` method with regards to multi-valued attibutes, and now also sorts multi-valued attributes so that two distinguished names will now match if they have the same, but dis-ordered multi-valued attributes.
