Technical Summary

This document creates a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Option for
transmitting a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) that points to a client's
geolocation. The URI can be dereferenced in a separate transaction to obtain the
client's geolocation.


Working Group Summary

This document represents the consensus of the GEOPRIV working group. The
document went through several revisions in order to establish a clear
understanding of the security model surrounding location URIs passed via DHCP,
but WG participants are now satisfied with the description of the model provided
in the document.


Document Quality

This document has been extensively reviewed by GEOPRIV participants and members
of the DHC WG. The most recent round of DHC reviews resulted in changes to the
document to ensure that the option specified here does not conflict with DHCP
lease expiration behavior.
