This attribute verifies authentication information produced with the corresponding private key.

The attribute contains the public key, along with information that certifies the integrity of the public/private key pair. Certification information is necessary to prevent legitimate key pairs from being replaced by illicit key pairs.

For LDAP clients to access this attribute, the LDAP server must be configured to map the attribute to a name without spaces or colons. The LDAP server in NDS eDirectory supports the Octet String syntax.
