                draft-iab-privacy-considerations-01.txt

Abstract

   This document offers guidance for developing privacy considerations
   for IETF documents and aims to make protocol designers aware of
   privacy-related design choices.

   Discussion of this document is taking place on the IETF Privacy
   Discussion mailing list (see

Internet-Draft           Privacy Considerations             October 2011

1.  Introduction

   All IETF specifications are required by [RFC2223] to contain a
   security considerations section.  [RFC3552] provides detailed
   guidance to protocol designers about both how to consider security as
   part of protocol design and how to inform readers of IETF documents
   about security issues.  This document intends to provide a similar
   set of guidance for considering privacy in protocol design.  Whether
   any individual document will require a specific privacy
   considerations section will depend on the document's content.  The
   guidance provided here can and should be used to assess the privacy
   considerations of protocol and architectural specifications
   regardless of whether those considerations are documented in a stand-
   alone section.

   Privacy is a complicated concept with a rich history that spans many
