This document provides a problem statement, lists requirements, and
captures design aspects for a GEOPRIV Layer 7 (L7) Location
Configuration Protocol (LCP).  This protocol aims to allow an end
host to obtain location information, by value or by reference, from a
Location Information Server (LIS) that is located in the access
network.  The obtained location information can then be used for a
variety of different protocols and purposes.  For example, it can be
used as input to the Location-to-Service Translation (LoST) Protocol
or to convey location within the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) to
other entities.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track 
specification; it is published for informational purposes.

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