RFC 6352 introduction

Address books containing contact information are a key component of personal information management tools, such as email, calendaring and scheduling, and instant messaging clients.
To date several protocols have been used for remote access to contact data, including the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) [RFC4510], Internet Message Support Protocol [IMSP], and Application Configuration Access Protocol (ACAP) [RFC2244], together with SyncML used for synchronization of such data.
