Description

When user identities can be drawn from multiple providers, we need to be able to serialize both the id and the provider namespace, for example by encapsulating both in a single distinguished name (DN). Ideally this serialization would be relatively short, persistent, and human understandable, and ideally it should not contain spaces or other characters that make it difficult to utilize in a variety of contexts (such as command line applications).

An example DN that has worked for the KNB network is:

uid=jones,o=NCEAS,dc=ecoinformatics,dc=org
