1.  Introduction

   Advertising and discovering with Bonjour can leak a lot of
   information about a device or person, such as their name, the types
   of services they provide or use, and persistent identifiers.  This
   information can be used to identify and track a person's location and
   daily routine (e.g. buys coffee every morning at 8 AM at Starbucks on
   Main Street).  It can also reveal intimate details about a person's
   behavior and medical conditions, such as discovery requests for a
   glucose monitor, possibly indicating diabetes.

   This document specifies additions to Bonjour to retain the same level
   of advertising and discovery functionality while preserving privacy
   and confidentiality.

   This document does not specify how keys are provisioned.
   Provisioning keys is complex enough to justify its own document(s).
   This document assumes each peer has a long-term asymmetric key pair
   (LTPK and LTSK) and communicating peers have each other's long-term
   asymmetric public key (LTPK).

2.  Conventions and 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].

   "Friend"
      A peer you have a cryptographic relationship with.  Specifically,
      that you have the peer's LTPK.

   "Probe"
      A probe is an unsolicited multicast message sent to find friends
