Abstract

   This document aims to describe how internet standards, protocols and
   its implementations may impact diverse groups and communities.  The
   research on how some protocol can be enabler for specific human
   rights while possibly restricting others has been documented in
   [RFC8280].  Similar to how RFC 8280 has taken a human rights lens
   through which to view engineering and design choices by internet
   standardisation, this document addresgses the opportunities and
   vulnerabilities embedded within internet protocols for specific,
   traditionally maginalised groups.
