    ABSTRACT: This document replaces SR-3697.

    Issue 5 of GR-3697, Line Information Database (LIDB) Data Screening - Volume 1 (SS7 Interface) and Volume 2 (LDAP Interface), replaces Issue 4.

    This document contains the Telcordia view of Line Information Database (LIDB) Data Screening generic requirements for LIDB and the LIDB Administrative System (LIDB AS) functionality. The LIDB Data Screening Process permits the denial of access to LIDB data and/or LIDB processing, either completely or partially, from unknown or unauthorized LIDB Service Requesters (LSRs). The LIDB Data Screening process also permits selective return of data based on the capabilities of the Query Originators (QOs) and supports indication of 'ABS Denial' based on the authorization of the LSRs and/or their relationship to the owner of the data.

    LIDB service providers need to be aware that retrieval mechanisms for new data elements need to conform to a uniform standard security screening procedure. This document is the only document that describes the LIDB interface and data security procedures.

    GR-3697 is divided into 2 volumes. Volume 1 supports the LIDB Data Screening requirements for the Signaling System Number 7 (SS7) interface. Volume 2 proposes the requirements to evolve LIDB to support Data Screening for the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) interface.

    Issue 5 includes the following:

    • Two (2) newly defined standard elements, which are retrievalble from LIDB via GetData, and also from other wireless and IP-based protocols (e.g., LDAP Search) via protocol conversion
    • Formats, descriptions, and Element IDs
    • Security requirements to support LDAP Compare Interface
    The two newly defined elements are:
    • Extended Name (EN) String that can store up to 60 characters of name information associated with a Telephone Number (TN), thus making available a longer version of the Generic Name String (currently limited to 15 characters)
    • Extended Name (EN) Privacy Indicator indicates whether the name associated with a Telephone Number (TN) is "public" or "private."
    Issue 4:
    • Reserved a specific value in the AO field to represent that the AO information is unknown and another specific value in the AO field to represent that the service provider does not have a NECA code but has another identifier
    • Included the names and corresponding tags for nine (9) newly defined standard elements, which are retrievable from LIDB via GetData, TIA/EIA-41 Search, and LDAP Search queries.
    The nine new line elements are:
    • Third Party Bill Block -- Identifies whether or not third party charges can be included on the end user's bill
    • Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Provider ID -- Identifies the company that is responsible for the end user's VoIP service
    • Line Technology Type -- Identifies the technology associated with the line number (e.g., VoIP, Wireless, etc.)
    • E-mail Address, E-mail Address-2, E-mail Address-3, E-mail Address-4, E-mail Address-5, and E-mail Address-6 -- These are six standalone data elements and each identifies an e-mail address associated with the line number. For example, the E-mail Address data element identifies a primary e-mail address associated with the line number.
