It's written in RFC2252 and RFC2253 (which applies to
LDAP V3). Looking at Google I also find the following on
"Internationalization is addressed via an international character set (ISO
10646) to represent protocol elements that are strings (such as DNs). Version
3 also differs from version 2 in that it uses UTF-8 to encode its strings."
