Definition

The name(s) that should appear in white-pages-like applications for this person.

From RFC2798 description: "preferred name of a person to be used when displaying entries."

Notes

  • Cn (common name) is multi-valued and overloaded to meet the needs of multiple applications. displayName is a better candidate for use in DoD white pages and configurable email clients.
