DSML

(Directory Services Markup Language) A set of XML tags that defines the contents of a directory. Developed by Bowstreet, Inc., Tewksbury, MA (www.bowstreet.com), which was acquired by IBM in 2005, and endorsed by major vendors, it is designed to allow directories to work together. An access protocol such as LDAP is required to request services, and DSML provides a common format for delivering the results. For information, visit www.xml.org. See LDAP.
