This document reviews the security threats associated with the
marking of signalling messages to indicate that they are related to
an emergency, and with the process of mapping locations to Universal
Resource Identifiers (URIs) that point to Public Safety Answering
Points (PSAPs).  This mapping occurs as part of the process of
routing emergency calls through the IP network.

Based on the identified threats, this document establishes a set of
security requirements for the mapping protocol and for the handling
of emergency-marked calls.  This memo provides information for the 
Internet community.

This document is a product of the Emergency Context Resolution with 
Internet Technologies Working Group of the IETF.
