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. Personnel Alissa Cooper is the document shepherd. Robert Sparks is the responsible area director.
