A person object contains information about technical or administrative contact responsible for the object where it is referenced. Each object has a unique Nic-handle attribute ("nic-hdl:"). Nic-handle is a unique identifier of a PERSON object. Whenever a PERSON object is referenced in another database object, it is referenced by its Nic-handle and not by the person’s name. Once the object is created, the value of the "person:" attribute cannot be changed.
Note: An auto-generated mntner object will be added in person objects which do not have a "mnt-by" attribute. The password of the auto-generated mntner will be sent to the email address(es) specified in the person object at the time of creation.
