RFC 6155 specifies an extension for the HTTP-Enabled Location
Delivery (HELD) protocol, allowing the use of an IP address and port
number to request a Device location based on an individual packet

However, certain kinds of NAT require that identifiers for both ends
of the packet flow must be specified in order to unambiguously
satisfy the location request.

This document specifies an XML Schema and a URN Sub-Namespace for a
Flow Identity Extension for HELD to support this requirement.

This document updates RFC 6155 by deprecating the port number
elements specified therein.

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

This is now a Proposed Standard.

protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
