Abstract : This paper is part of the documentation series produced under the HQADF sponsored task 'D6: A Security Architecture for Large, Distributed Multimedia Systems'. It proposes to use the Message Security Protocol (MSP) for providing the security service support to the Directory Access Protocol (DAP). This may be viewed as an interim option for the directory service implementation before the militarised DAP is finalised and its trusted directory user agent becomes available. Specifically, this paper focuses on the necessary protocol elements of MSP for supporting the security requirements of the DAP.
