The OpenTelecoms.org LDAP ENUM module for bind9 is based on the dlz_dlopen API

The module has been used commercially and is now available to the open source community

How it works

Let's say you have your people in LDAP already, with telephoneNumber and mail attributes defined:


dn: cn=Alice,dc=example,dc=org
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
cn: Alice
mail: alice@example.org
telephoneNumber: +44207135

Now, just install dlz-ldap-enum as per the README instructions, and then you can query any phone number via DNS, and get back the SIP and Jabber addresses in NAPTR records:


$ dig @localhost -t any 5.3.1.7.0.2.4.4.e164-rev.test

;; ANSWER SECTION:
5.3.1.7.0.2.4.4.e164-rev.test. 60 IN NAPTR 100 10 "u" "E2U+sip" "!^\\+44207135$!sip:alice@example.org!" .
5.3.1.7.0.2.4.4.e164-rev.test. 60 IN NAPTR 100 10 "u" "E2U+xmpp" "!^\\+44207135$!xmpp:alice@example.org!" .

Using ENUM queries, all the VoIP software on your network can now use your LDAP database as a call routing database. You could literally rip out your old phone system, tear up the expensive maintenance contracts and run the whole enterprise on OpenLDAP, a SIP proxy, wifi and Lumicall.
