                  Filtering Location Notifications in
                 the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)

Abstract

   This document describes filters that limit asynchronous location
   notifications to compelling events.  These filters are designed as an
   extension to RFC 4661, an XML-based format for event notification
   filtering, and based on RFC 3856, the SIP presence event package.
   The resulting location information is conveyed in existing location
   formats wrapped in the Presence Information Data Format Location
   Object (PIDF-LO).

RFC 6447                    Location Filters                January 2012


1.  Introduction

   Conveying location information encapsulated with a Presence
   Information Data Format Location Object (PIDF-LO) [RFC4119] document
   within SIP is described in [SIP-LOC].  An alternative signaling
   approach to location conveyance, which uses asynchronous
   communication, is available with the SIP event notification
   mechanisms (see RFC 3265 [RFC3265]).  This approach conveys location
   information in PIDF-LO format using the presence event package
   [RFC3856].  This document focuses on the event notification paradigm.

   Determining when to send event notifications with location
   information is technically more challenging than deciding when to
   send other categories of notifications, since location may be
   measured as a continuous gradient.  Unlike notifications using
   discrete-valued quantities, it is difficult to know when a change in
   location is sufficiently large to warrant a notification.  Event
   notifications [RFC3265] can be used with filters (see RFC 4661
   [RFC4661]) that allow the number of notifications to be reduced.  The
   mechanism described in this document defines an extension to RFC 4661
   [RFC4661], which limits location notification to events that are of
   relevance to the subscriber.  These filters persist until they are
   replaced with a newer filter or until the subscription itself is
   terminated.

   The frequency of notifications necessary for various geographic
   location applications varies dramatically.  The subscriber should be
   able to get asynchronous notifications with appropriate frequency and
   granularity, without being flooded with a large number of
   notifications that are not important to the application.

   This document defines new event filters and describes others using
   existing mechanisms that may be relevant to a subscriber in the
   context of location filtering.  Based on the functionality defined in
   this document, notifications can be provided in the following cases:

   1.  the Target moves more than a specified distance since the last
       notification (see Section 3.1).

   2.  the Target exceeds a specified speed (see Section 3.2).

   3.  the Target enters or exits a 2-dimensional region, described by a
       circle or a polygon (see Section 3.4).

   4.  one or more of the values of the specified civic location have
       changed for the location of the Target (see Section 3.3).  For
       example, the value of the civic address '<A1>' element has
       changed from 'California' to 'Nevada'.

RFC 6447                    Location Filters                January 2012


   5.  the type of location information requested (see Section 3.5)
       changes, for example, from civic to geodetic location or vice
       versa.

   6.  a certain amount of time passes (see Section 3.6).

2.  Terminology

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

   This document reuses terminology from [RFC6280].

3.  Filter Definitions

   This specification builds on a number of other specifications, as
   noted in Section 1.  In order to reduce the number of options (and
   thereby decrease the chance of interoperability problems), the
   functionality described in the following sub-sections of [RFC4661]
   MUST be implemented: the <ns-bindings> element (see Section 3.3 of
   [RFC4661]); the <filter> element (Section 3.4 of [RFC4661]); and the
   <trigger> element (Section 3.6 of [RFC4661]), except for the <added>
   and <removed> sub-elements.

3.1.  Movement

   The <moved> element MUST contain a value in meters indicating the
   minimum distance that the resource must have moved from the location
   of the resource since the last notification was sent in order to
   trigger this event.  The distance MUST be measured in meters
   absolutely from the point of the last notification, and must include
   vertical movement.  The <moved> element MUST NOT appear more than
   once as a child element of the <filter> element.

       xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:simple-filter"
       xmlns:lf="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:location-filter">

           <trigger>
               <lf:moved>300</lf:moved>
           </trigger>
       </filter>
   </filter-set>

                     Figure 1: Movement Filter Example

3.2.  Speed Changes

   Speed changes can be filtered by combining functionality from RFC
   4661 with the PIDF-LO extensions for spatial orientation, speed,
   heading, and acceleration defined in [RFC5962].  The value of the
   <speed> element from [RFC5962] MUST be defined in meters per second.
   Note that the condition could be met by a change in any axis,
   including altitude.

   Figure 2 shows an example for a trigger that fires when the speed of
   the Target changes by 3 meters per second.

   <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
   <filter-set xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:simple-filter">
       <ns-bindings>
           <ns-binding prefix="dyn"
               urn="urn:ietf:params:xml:schema:pidf:dynamic"/>
       </ns-bindings>
       <filter id="123" uri="sip:presentity@example.com">
           <trigger>
               <changed by="3">
                 //dyn:speed
               </changed>
           </trigger>
       </filter>
   </filter-set>

                      Figure 2: Speed Change Example

   An implementation MUST support <ns-bindings> to replace the namespace
   prefix.  The XPath expression MUST start with a '//' followed by a
   single element.  No other form of XPath expression is supported.  The
   <changed> element comes with a few attributes but only the 'by'
   attribute MUST be implemented by this specification.

3.3.  Element Value Changes

   Changes in values, for example related to civic location information,
   is provided by the base functionality offered with RFC 4661 utilizing
   the <changed> element.

   The following example illustrates a filter that triggers when the
   Target's location changes from 'FR' (France) to some other country.

   <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
   <filter-set xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:simple-filter">
       <ns-bindings>
           <ns-binding prefix="ca"
               urn="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:pidf:geopriv10:civicAddr"/>
       </ns-bindings>
       <filter id="123" uri="sip:presentity@example.com">
           <trigger>
               <changed from="FR">//ca:country</changed>
           </trigger>
       </filter>
   </filter-set>

          Figure 3: Element Value Change Example (Country Change)

   At times when it is desirable to know if any one element of a list of
   CAtypes changes, then they have to be put into separate <changes>
   filters to ensure the subscriber is notified when any of the element
   values change.  Figure 4 shows such an example that illustrates the
   difference.

   (A change in value of ANY of the five tokens triggers an event.)

       </ns-bindings>
       <filter id="123" uri="sip:presentity@example.com">
              <trigger>
                  <changed>//ca:country</changed>
              </trigger>
              <trigger>
                  <changed>//ca:A1</changed>
              </trigger>
              <trigger>
                  <changed>//ca:A2</changed>
              </trigger>
              <trigger>
                  <changed>//ca:A3</changed>
              </trigger>
              <trigger>
                  <changed>//ca:PC</changed>
              </trigger>
       </filter>
   </filter-set>

                  Figure 4: Element Value Change Example

   Finally, Figure 5 shows an example where a notification is sent when
   the civic address tokens A3 and PC change (BOTH elements must change
   in order to let the <trigger> element evaluate to TRUE).

RFC 6447                    Location Filters                January 2012


   (Only a change in BOTH tokens triggers an event.)

   <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
   <filter-set xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:simple-filter">
       <ns-bindings>
           <ns-binding prefix="ca"
               urn="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:pidf:geopriv10:civicAddr"/>
       </ns-bindings>
       <filter id="123" uri="sip:presentity@example.com">
           <trigger>
               <changed>//ca:A3</changed>
               <changed>//ca:PC</changed>
           </trigger>
       </filter>
   </filter-set>

                  Figure 5: Element Value Change Example

   Note: The civic address tokens country, A1, A2, ..., A6 are
   hierarchical.  It is likely that a change in one civic address token
   therefore leads to changes of tokens lower in the hierarchy, e.g., a
   change in A3 ('city or town') may cause a change in A4, A5, and A6.

   An implementation MUST support <ns-bindings> to replace the namespace
   prefix.  The XPath expression MUST start with a '//' followed by a
   single element.  No other form of XPath expression is supported.  No
   other variant is supported.  The <changed> element comes with a few
   attributes and the 'by', 'to', and 'from' attribute MUST be
   implemented to support this specification.

3.4.  Entering or Exiting a Region

   The <enterOrExit> condition is satisfied when the Target enters or
   exits a 2-dimensional region described by a polygon (as defined in
   Section 5.2.2 of [RFC5491]) or a circle (as defined in Section 5.2.3
   of [RFC5491]).  The <enterOrExit> element MUST contain either a
   polygon or a circle as a child element.  The <enterOrExit> element
   MUST NOT have more than one polygon and/or circle.

   If the Target was previously outside the region, the notifier sends a
   notification when the Target's location is within the region with at
   least 50% confidence.  Similarly, when a Target starts within the
   region, a notification is sent when the Target's location moves
   outside the region with at least 50% confidence.

   Note that having 50% confidence that the Target is inside the area
   does not correspond to 50% outside.  The confidence that the location
   is within the region, plus the confidence that the location is



Mahy, et al.                 Standards Track                    [Page 8]

RFC 6447                    Location Filters                January 2012


   outside the region is limited to the confidence of the location.  The
   total confidence depends on the confidence in the location, which is
   always less than 100% (95% is recommended in [RFC5491]).  The benefit
   of this is that notifications are naturally limited: small movements
   (relative to the uncertainty of the location) at the borders of the
   region do not trigger notifications.

   Figure 6 shows filter examples whereby a notification is sent when
   the Target enters or exits an area described by a circle, and
   Figure 7 describes an area using a polygon.

   geodetic:  The Notifier SHOULD return a location by value in the form
      of a geodetic location.

   civic:  The Notifier SHOULD return a location by value in the form of
      a civic address.

   The Notifier SHOULD return the requested location type or types.  The
   location types the Notifier returns also depends on the setting of
   the optional 'exact' attribute.  If the 'exact' attribute is set to
   "true", then the Notifier MUST return either the requested location
   type or no location information.  The 'exact' attribute does not
   apply (is ignored) for a request for a location type of "any".

   In the case of a request for specific locationType(s) and the 'exact'
   attribute is "false", the Notifier MAY provide additional location
   types, or it MAY provide alternative types if the request cannot be
   satisfied for a requested location type.

   If the <locationType> element is absent, a value of "any" MUST be
   assumed as the default.

   The Notifier SHOULD provide civic and geodetic location information
   in the response in the same order in which they were included in the
   "locationType" element in the request, if both were explicitly
   requested.  Indeed, the primary advantage of including specific
   location types in a request when the 'exact' attribute is set to
   "false" is to ensure that one receives the available locations in a
   specific order.  For example, a subscription for "civic" (with the
   'exact' attribute set to "false") could yield any of the following
   location types in the response:

   o  civic

   o  civic, geodetic

   o  geodetic (only if civic is not available)

   The default value of "false" for the 'exact' attribute allows the
   Notifier the option of returning something beyond what is specified,
   such as a set of location URIs when only a civic location was
   requested.

   An example is shown in Figure 8 that utilizes the <locationType>
   element with the 'exact' attribute.

3.6.  Rate Control

   [RFC6446] extends the SIP events framework by defining three Event
   header field parameters that allow a subscriber to set a minimum, a
   maximum, and an adaptive minimum of event notifications generated by
   the notifier.  This allows a subscriber to have overall control over
   the stream of notifications, for example to avoid being flooded.  Two
   of the parameters, namely "min-rate" (which specifies a minimum
   notification rate per second) and "max-rate" (which specifies a
   maximum notification rate per second) are used by this document.
   Only the implementation of these two attributes is required from the
   attributes defined in [RFC6446].  Whenever the time since the most
   recent notification exceeds the interval corresponding to 1 / "min-
   rate", the current state would be sent in its entirety, just like
   after a subscription refresh.

   A notifier is required to send a NOTIFY request immediately after
   creation of a subscription.  If state is not available at that time,
   then the NOTIFY request may be sent with no content.  A separate
   NOTIFY containing location is subsequently generated so that the rate
   of notification since the last NOTIFY falls between "min-rate" and
   "max-rate".  An important use case for location-based applications
   focuses on the behavior of the initial NOTIFY message(s) and the
   information it returns, for example in case of emergency call
   routing.  When an initial NOTIFY is transmitted, it might not include
   complete state.










Mahy, et al.                 Standards Track                   [Page 12]

RFC 6447                    Location Filters                January 2012


      Subscriber          Notifier
          |---SUBSCRIBE(1)--->|  Create subscription (w/large value
          |<-------200--------|    for min-rate and max-rate)
          |<-----NOTIFY(2)----|  Return initial notify with no state
          |--------200------->|
          |        ...        |
          |<-----NOTIFY(3)----|  Return full state (between min-rate
          |--------200------->|    and max-rate)
          |---SUBSCRIBE(4)--->|  Update subscription (to update
          |<-------200--------|    min-rate and max-rate)

               Figure 9: SUBSCRIBE/NOTIFY with Rate Control

   Figure 9 shows a SUBSCRIBE/NOTIFY exchange.  The initial SUBSCRIBE
   message (1) has filters attached and contains a "min-rate" rate
   control parameter.  In certain situations, it is important to obtain
   some amount of location information within a relatively short and
   pre-defined period of time, even if the obtained location information
   contains a high amount of uncertainty and location information with
   less uncertainty could be available at a later point in time.  An
   example is emergency call routing where an emergency services routing
   proxy may need to obtain location information suitable for routing
   rather quickly and subsequently a Public Safety Answering Point
   requests location information for dispatch.

   To obtain location information in a timely fashion using the
   SUBSCRIBE/NOTIFY mechanism, it is RECOMMENDED that the initial
   SUBSCRIBE contain a "min-rate" rate control parameter (with a large
   value, corresponding to a very short delay before the next
   notification) that is updated in a later message to a more sensible
   value.  This provides equivalent functionality to the 'responseTime'
   attribute in Section 6.1 of [RFC5985].  The "min-rate" for this first
   request is therefore much larger (much more rapid) than the updated
   "min-rate" value.  Depending on the value in the "min-rate"
   parameter, the Notifier may immediately send the initial NOTIFY
   message (see message 2) without a body if no location information is
   available at this point in time.  The desired location information
   may then arrive in the subsequent NOTIFY message (see message 3).
   Updating the "min-rate" for the subscription can be performed in the
   200 response (see message 3) to the NOTIFY that contains location
   state, or in a subsequent SUBSCRIBE request (as in message 4).

5.  Security Considerations

   This document specifies one element, namely filters, utilized in
   larger systems.  As such, this document builds on a number of
   specifications for the security of the complete solution, namely

   o  the SIP event notification mechanism, described in RFC 3265
      [RFC3265], defining the SUBSCRIBE/NOTIFY messages.

   o  the presence event package, described in RFC 3856 [RFC3856], which
      is a concrete instantiation of the general event notification
      framework.

   o  the filter framework, described in RFC 4661 [RFC4661], to offer
      the ability to reduce the amount of notifications being sent.

   Finally, this document indirectly (via the SIP presence event
   package) relies on PIDF-LO, described in RFC 4119 [RFC4119], as the
   XML container that carries location information.

   Each of the documents listed above comes with a Security
   Considerations section but the security and privacy aspects are best
   covered by the SIP presence event package; see Section 9 of
   [RFC3856], and with the GEOPRIV architectural description found in
   [RFC6280].

   The functionality offered by authorization policies to limit access
   to location information is provided by other protocols, such as
   Common Policy [RFC4745], Geolocation Policy [GEO-POLICY], or more
   recent work around HTTP-Enabled Location Delivery (HELD) context
   [HELD].  Although [GEO-POLICY] defines a standardized format for
   geolocation authorization policies, it does not define specific
   policies for controlling filters.

   The functionality described in this document extends the filter
   framework with location-specific filters.  Local policies might be



Mahy, et al.                 Standards Track                   [Page 15]

RFC 6447                    Location Filters                January 2012


   associated with the usage of certain filter constructs and with the
   amount of notifications that specific filter settings might cause.
   Uploading filters have a significant effect on the ways in which the
   request is handled at a server.  As a result, it is especially
   important that messages containing this extension be authenticated
   and authorized.  RFC 4661 [RFC4661] discusses this security threat
   and proposes authentication and authorization solutions applicable to
   this specification.
