Location-based services, navigation applications, emergency
services, management of equipment in the field, and other
location-dependent services need geographic location information about
a Target (such as a user, resource or other entity).  There is a need
to securely gather and transfer location information for location
services, while at the same time protect the privacy of the
individuals involved.

This document focuses on the authorization, security and privacy
requirements for such location-dependent services.  Specifically, it
describes the requirements for the Geopriv Location Object (LO) and
for the protocols that use this Location Object.  This LO is
envisioned to be the primary data structure used in all Geopriv
protocol exchanges to securely transfer location data.

This document is a product of the Geographic Location/Privacy Working
Group of the IETF.
