                    Flow Identity Extension for HELD
                 draft-bellis-geopriv-flow-identity-00

Abstract

   Identity Extensions using an IP address and port number to request a
   location based on an individual packet flow have been previously
   specified by the GEOPRIV Working Group.

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

   This document specifieds a Flow Identity Extension for the HTTP-
   Enabled Location Delivery (HELD) Protocol to support this
   requirement.

1.  Introduction

   Work at the Emergency Location Working Group of NICC Standards Ltd
   (the UK's telecoms standards body) prompted the addition of Port
   Number identifiers in [RFC6155]HELD Identity

   Subsequent analysis has determined that in the presence of particular
   types of NAT device, and in particular Carrier Grade NATs, it is
   necessary to know the complete tuple of (layer 3 protocol, layer 4
   protocol, source address, source port, destination address,
   destination port) in order to unambiguously identify a flow, and
   therefore the true target Device.

   This document creates an XML Schema and URN Sub-Namespace for a Flow
   Identity Etension to support this requirement.

3.  Usage

   An example HELD request is show below:

   <locationRequest xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:geopriv:held"
                         responseTime="8">
     <locationType exact="true">geodetic</locationType>
     <flow xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:geopriv:held:flow"
       layer4="tcp" layer3="ipv4">
       <src>
         <address>192.168.1.1</address>
         <port>1024</port>
       </src>
       <dst>
         <address>10.0.0.1</address>
         <port>80</port>
       </dst>
     </flow>
   </locationRequest>

   The <flow> element MUST contain a "layer3" attribute with a value of
   "ipv4" or "ipv6", and a "layer4" attribute with a value of "udp",
   "tcp", "sctp" or "dccp".
