An object identifier is a numeric value that unambiguously identifies an object class, attribute, or syntax in a directory service. An OID is represented as a dotted decimal string (for example, "18.104.22.168"). Companies (and individuals) can obtain a root OID from an issuing authority and use it to allocate additional OIDs.
(OID) A number that uniquely identifies an object class or attribute. An object identifier is represented as a dotted decimal string, such as 22.214.171.124. Object identifiers are organized into a global hierarchy. National registration authorities issue root object identifiers to individuals or organizations, who manage the hierarchy below their root object identifier. See also Abstract Syntax Notation 1, attribute.
Every managed object, whether the object is a device or the characteristics of a device, has a name, a syntax, and an encoding. The name, an object identifier (OID), uniquely identifies the object. The OID is written as a sequence of integers separated by periods. For example, the sequence 126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.0 specifies the system description within the system group of the management subtree.
a hierarchical sequence of numbers uniquely identifying an object
a logical pointer, not a physical pointer, and makes it possible to naturally model and access hierarchical structures of data
an administratively assigned name composed of a series of integers traversing a path from the root of the ASN
a sequence of integers separated by decimal points
a sequence of integers which traverse a global tree
a unique number that identifies the COM object in an application to the operating system
A value specifying the nature of an X.400 object. OIDs are used by MAPI for various purposes, such as indicating the types of attached files.
Series of numeric or alphanumeric signs, registered in accordance with ISO/IEC 9834 Standard, uniquely identifying an object or class of objects. Eg. 1.2.616.1.1135184.108.40.206 is the OID of Unizeto CERTUM Level I Certification Policy.
(OID) A unique specially formatted number that is composed of a most significant part assigned by an internationally recognized standards organization to a specific owner and a least significant part assigned by the owner of the most significant part. For example, the unique alphanumeric/numeric identifier registered under the ISO registration standard to reference a specific object or object class. In the Higher Education PKI they are used to uniquely identify policies and cryptographic algorithms and possibly other elements contained in a PKC.
(OID) A string representation of an object identifier consists of a list of decimal numbers separated by periods, e.g. "220.127.116.11.4.1". In LDAP, object identifiers are used to uniquely identify schema elements, including object classes and attribute types. The top levels of an object identifier hierarchy are managed by standards bodies and are delegated to organizations who wish to construct their own schema definitions.
A sequence of elements, as specified by the SNMP standard (RFC 1442), that uniquely identifies each object. An object identifier (OID) is a sequence of elements that indicates a hierarchical organization of identifiers.
An administratively assigned data value of the type defined in abstract syntax notation 1 (ASN.1).
The primary identifier for a digital object within the Digital Preservation Repository, usually an ARK.
A sequence of integers assigned to network objects by SMI to locate their position in the tree-like topology of a network.
An object identifier, which is bit pattern that unambiguously can identify an object. OIDs can be logical or physical. The SVAS deals only in logical OIDs. In these documents, OID is intended to mean logical OID unless its alternative meaning is made explicit. A logical OID consists of a volume ID and a serial number.
A string, usually of decimal numbers, that uniquely identifies a schema element, such as an object class or an attribute, in an object-oriented system. Object identifiers are assigned by ANSI, IETF or similar organizations.
A number that identifies an object class or attribute. Object identifiers (OIDs) are organized into an industry-wide global hierarchy. An object identifier is represented as a dotted decimal string, such as 18.104.22.168, with each dot representing a new branch in the hierarchy. National registration authorities issue root object identifiers to individuals or organizations, who manage the hierarchy below their root object identifier. There are no glossary terms that begin with this letter. There are no glossary terms that begin with this letter.
(OID) basically, strings of numbers allocated in a hierarchical manner, so that, for instance, the authority for "1.2.3" is the only one that can say what "22.214.171.124" means; are used in a variety of protocols; their formal definition comes from ITU-T recommendation X.208 (ASN.1), chapter 28, the assignment of the "top of the tree" is given in appendixes B, C and D; the encodings, i.e. how one can transfer an OID as bits on the wire, is defined in X.209
Management information is organized in a tree of nodes. Each node is unambiguously identified by an `object identifier', that consists of a sequence of integer numbers (`sub-identifiers') which represent the path of nodes from the root to the addressed node in the tree. See also The Information Model.
A sequence of integers that uniquely identifies an associated data object in a global name space administrated by a hierarchy of naming authorities. This is a primitive data type in
In computing, an object identifier or OID is an identifier used to name an object (compare URN). Structurally, an OID consists of a node in a hierarchically-assigned namespace, formally defined using the ITU-T's ASN.1 standard. Successive numbers of the nodes, starting at the root of the tree, identify each node in the tree.
