In LDAP parlance what do you call something like o="Oracle" or o="Microsoft", appended to the end of the distinguished name(aka userId) for login puposes?



For e.g my userID for login to LDAP looks like this:-

cn=Ravindran,ou=IT,ou=Corp,o=mycompanyName

What do you call the "o=mycompanyName" part.

The rest(cn=Ravindran,ou=IT,ou=Corp) can be obtained by querying the LDAP server

The terminology + abbreviations came from X.500 first.


I think "o" stands for "Organization"?


Then "ou" stands for "Organizational Unit", e.g. a smaller unit within an "o".
