Description of Working Group:


    The IETF has recognized that many applications are emerging that
    require geographic and civic location information about resources and
    entities, and that the representation and transmission of that
    information has significant privacy and security implications. We have
    created a suite of protocols that allow such applications to represent
    and transmit such location objects and to allow users to express
    policies on how these representations are exposed and used. The IETF
    has also begun working on creating applications that use these
    capabilities, for emergency services, general real-time communication,
    and other usages.

    The GEOPRIV working group is chartered to continue to develop and
    refine representations of location in Internet protocols, and to
    analyze the authorization, integrity, and privacy requirements that
    must be met when these representations of location are created,
    stored, and used. The group will create and refine mechanisms for the
    transmission of these representations that address the requirements
    that have been identified.

    The working group will work with other IETF working groups and other
    standards development organizations that are building applications
    that use location information to ensure that the requirements are well
    understood and met, and that no additional security or privacy issues
    related to location are left unaddressed as these location information
    is incorporated into other protocols.

    It remains a goal of the GEOPRIV working group to deliver
    specifications of broad applicability that will become mandatory to
    implement for IETF protocols that are location aware.

    This working group will not develop location-determining technology.
    However, the IETF acknowledges that information used in the location-
    determination process will in some cases need to be carried over the
    Internet. Where necessary, this working group will develop protocols
    or protocol extensions to encode location-determination data
    structures defined elsewhere. This working group will not develop
    technologies to directly address any particular regulatory
    requirements (e.g. 9-1-1). The group will continue to coordinate with
    any other IETF entities that are working on those problems to ensure
    the technologies created here meet the needs of those entities, and
    that the authorization, integrity, and privacy requirements on the
    mechanisms provided by these technologies continue to be met.
