Location-based services (such as navigation applications, emergency
services, and management of equipment in the field) need geographic
location information about Internet hosts, their users, and other
related entities.  These applications need to securely gather and
transfer location information for location services, and at the same
time protect the privacy of the individuals involved.  This document
describes an architecture for privacy-preserving location-based
services in the Internet, focusing on authorization, security, and
privacy requirements for the data formats and protocols used by these
services.  This memo documents an Internet Best Current Practice.

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

BCP: This document specifies an Internet Best Current Practices for the
Internet Community, and requests discussion and suggestions for 
improvements. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
