Internet-Draft          GEOPRIV LbyR Requirements          February 2009

1.  Introduction

   All location-based services rely on ready access to location
   information.  Using location information can be done one of two ways,
   either in a direct, Location-by-Value (LbyV) approach, or using an
   indirect, Location-by-Reference (LbyR) model.

   For LbyV, location information is conveyed directly in the form of a
   PIDF-LO ([RFC4119]).  Using LbyV might either be infeasible or
   undesirable in some circumstances.  There are cases where LbyR is
   better able to address location requirements for a specific
   architecture or application.  This document provides a list of
   requirements for use with the LbyR approach, and leaves the LbyV
   model explicitly out of scope.

   As justification for a LbyR model, consider the circumstance that in
   some mobile networks it is not efficient for the end host to
   periodically query the LIS for up-to-date location information.  This
   is especially the case when power availability is a constraint or
   when a location update is not immediately needed.  Furthermore, the
   end host might want to delegate the task of retrieving and publishing
   location information to a third party, such as to a presence server.
   Additionally, in some deployments, the network operator may not want
   to make location information widely available.  These kinds of
   location scenarios provided, and others, such as whether a Target is
   mobile and whether a mobile device needs to be located on demand or
   according to some pre-determined interval, together, form the basis
   of motivation for the LbyR model.

   The concept of an LbyR mechanism is simple.  It is made up of a
   reference identifier which indirectly references actual location
   information using some combination of key value and fully qualified
   domain name.  This combination of data elements, in the form of a
   URI, is referred to specifically as a "location URI".

   A location URI is thought of as a dynamic reference to the current
   location of the Target, yet the location value might remain unchanged
   over specific intervals of time for several reasons.  These include:

   - Limitations in the process used to generate location information
   mean that cached location might be used.

   - Policy constraints that may dictate that the location provided
   remains fixed over time for specified Location Recipients.  Without
   additional information, a Location Recipient cannot assume that the
   location information provided by any location URI is static, and will
   never change.

Marshall                 Expires August 30, 2009                [Page 4]

Internet-Draft          GEOPRIV LbyR Requirements          February 2009

   The LbyR mechanism works according to an information lifecycle.
   Within this lifecycle, location URIs are considered temporary
   identifiers, each undergoing the following uses: Creation;
   Distribution; Conveyance; Dereference; and Termination.  The use of a
   location URI according to these various states is generally applied
   in one of the following ways:

   1.  Creation of a location URI, within a location server, based on
   some request for its creation.

   2.  Distribution of a location URI, via a Location Configuration
   Protocol, between a target and a location server.

   3.  Conveyance, applied to LbyR, in SIP, is the transporting of the
   location URI, in this case, between any successive signaling nodes.

   4.  Dereference of a location URI, a request/response between a
   client having a location URI and a location server holding the
   location  information that the location URI references.

   5.  Termination of a location URI, either due to expiration or
   cancellation within a location server, and which is based on a target
   cancellation  request or some other action, such as timer

   Note that this document makes no differentiation between a LS, per
   [RFC3693], and a LIS, as shown in [I-D.ietf-geopriv-l7-lcp-ps]), but
   may refer to either of them as a location server interchangeably.

   Location determination, different than location configuration or
   dereferencing, often includes topics related to manual provisioning
   processes, automated location calculations based on a variety of
   measurement techniques, and/or location transformations, (e.g., geo-
   coding), and is beyond the scope of this document.

   Location Conveyance for either LbyR or LbyV as defined within SIP
   signaling is considered out of scope for this document (see
   [I-D.ietf-sip-location-conveyance] for an explanation of location
   conveyance for either LbyR or LbyV scenarios.)

   Except for location conveyance, the above stages in the LbyR
   lifecycle fall into one of two general categories of protocols,
   either a Location Configuration Protocol or a Location Dereference
   Protocol.  The stages of LbyR Creation, Distribution, and
   Termination, are each found within the set of Location Configuration
   Protocols (LCP).  The Dereference stage belongs solely to the set of
   Location Dereference Protocols.

Internet-Draft          GEOPRIV LbyR Requirements          February 2009

   The issues around location configuration protocols have been
   documented in a location configuration protocol problem statement and
   requirements document [I-D.ietf-geopriv-l7-lcp-ps].  There are
   currently several examples of a location configuration protocols
   currently proposed, including, DHCP
   [I-D.ietf-geopriv-dhcp-lbyr-uri-option], LLDP-MED, and HELD
   [I-D.ietf-geopriv-http-location-delivery] protocols.

   For dereferencing of a location URI, depending on the type of
   reference used, such as a HTTP/HTTPS, or SIP Presence URI, different
   operations can be performed.  While an HTTP/HTTPS URI can be resolved
   to location information, a SIP Presence URI provides further benefits
   from the SUBSCRIBE/NOTIFY concept that can additionally be combined
   with location filters [I-D.ietf-geopriv-loc-filters].

   The structure of this document includes terminology, Section 2,
   followed by a discussion of the basic elements that surround how a
   location URI is used.  These elements, or actors, are discussed in an
   overview section, Section 3, accompanied by a graph, associated
   processing steps, and a brief discussion around the use, expiration,
   authorization, and construction of location URIs.

   Requirements are outlined accordingly, separated as location
   configuration requirements, Section 4.1, and location dereference
   requirements, Section 4.2.

2.  Terminology

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

   This document reuses the terminology of [RFC3693], such as Location
   Server (LS), Location Recipient (LR), Rule Maker (RM), Target,
   Location Generator (LG), Location Object (LO), and Using Protocol:

   Location-by-Value (LbyV):  Using location information in the form of
      a location object (LO), such as a PIDF-LO.

   Location-by-Reference (LbyR):  Representing location information
      indirectly using a location URI.

   Location Configuration Protocol:  A protocol which is used by a
      client to acquire either location or a location URI from a
      location configuration server, based on information unique to the

   Location Dereference Protocol:  A protocol that is used by a client
      to query a location server, based on the location URI input and
      which returns location information.

   Location URI:  As defined within this document, an identifier that
      serves as a reference to location information.  A location URI is
      provided by a location server, and is later used as input by a
      dereference protocol to retrieve location information.

          Figure 1: Location Reference Entities and Interactions

   Figure 1 shows the assumed communication model for both a layer 7
   location configuration protocol and a location dereference protocol.

   1.  The Target (a Device) uses a Location Configuration Protocol to
   acquire a location reference from a LIS, which acts as (or is able to
   access) an LS.

   In the case where the Target is also a Rule Maker, the location
   configuration protocol can be used to convey policy information.  In
   the case where possession of a location URI is the only required form
   of authorization, (see, Section 3.3), a policy is implied whereby any
   requester is granted access to location information.  This does not
   preclude other means of providing authorization policies.

   A Target could also acquire a location URI from the LS directly using
   alternative means, for example, the acquisition of a presence AoR to
   be used for location information, in which case, it could be regarded
   as a location URI.

Marshall                 Expires August 30, 2009                [Page 8]

Internet-Draft          GEOPRIV LbyR Requirements          February 2009

   2.  The Target conveys the location URI to the Location Recipient
   (interface out of scope).

   3.  The Location Recipient dereferences the location URI to acquire
   location information from the LS.

   The LS controls access to location information based on the policy
   provided by the Rule Maker.

   Note A. There is no requirement for using the same protocol in (1)
   and (3).

   Note B. Figure 1 includes the interaction between the owner of the
   Target and the LIS to obtain Rule Maker policies.  This interaction
   needs to happen before the LIS will authorize anything other than
   what is allowed based on default policies in order to dereference a
   location request of the Target.  This communication path is out of
   scope for this document.

   Note C. The Target might take on the role of the Location Recipient,
   in which case it could attempt to dereference the location URI
   itself, in order to obtain its own location information.

3.1.  Location URI Usage

   An example scenario of how the above might work, is where the Target
   obtains a location URI in the form of a subscription URI (e.g., a SIP
   URI) via a location configuration protocol.  In this case, the Target
   is the same as the Recipient, therefore the Target can subscribe to
   the URI in order to be notified of its current location based on
   subscription parameters.  In the example, parameters are set up for a
   specific Target/Recipient along with an expressed geospatial
   boundary, so that the Target/Recipient receives an updated location
   notification once the boundary is crossed (see

3.2.  Location URI Expiration

   Location URIs may have an expiry associated with them, primarily for
   security considerations, and generally so that the LIS is able to
   keep track of the location URIs that have been handed out, to know
   whether a location URI is still valid once the LIS receives it in a
   request, and in order for a recipient of such a URI from being able
   to (in some cases) permanently track a host.  Expiration of a
   location URI limits the time that accidental leaking of a location
   URI introduces.  Other justifications for expiration of location URIs
   include the ability for a LIS to do garbage collection.

Marshall                 Expires August 30, 2009                [Page 9]

Internet-Draft          GEOPRIV LbyR Requirements          February 2009

3.3.  Location URI Authorization

   How a location URI is will ultimately be used within the dereference
   step is an important consideration at the time that the location URI
   is requested via a location configuration protocol.  Since
   dereferencing of location URIs can be done according to a variety of
   authorization models it is important that location configuration
   protocols indicate the type of a location URI that is being
   requested, as well as which type is returned.

   Location URIs manifest themselves in a few different forms.  The
   different ways that a location URI can be represented is based on
   local policy, and are depicted in the following four scenarios.

   1. No specific information at all:  As is typical, a location URI is
      used to get location information.  However, in this case, the URI
      representation itself does not need to reveal any specific
      information at all.  Location information is acquired by the
      dereferencing operation a location URI.

   2. No user specific information:  By default, a location URI MUST NOT
      reveal any information about the Target other than location
      information.  This is true for the URI itself, (or in the document
      acquired by dereferencing), unless policy explicitly permits

   3. Access control authorization model (unauthorized recipients  can't
   get the information):  If the "access control authorization" model is
      used, the location URI MUST NOT include any location information
      in its representation.  Location URIs operating under this model
      could be widely published to recipients that are not authorized to
      receive this information.

   4. Possession authorization model (the URI itself is a secret):  If
      the "possession authorization" model is used, the location URI is
      confidential information shared between the LIS/LS, the Device and
      all authorized Location Recipients.  In this case, possession
      implies authorization.  Because knowledge of the location URI is
      used to authenticate and authorize access to location information,
      the URI needs to include sufficient randomness to make guessing
      its value difficult.  A possession model URI can include location
      information in its representation.

3.4.  Location URI Construction

   Depending on local policy, a location URI may be constructed in such
   a way as to make it difficult to guess.  Accordingly, the form of the
   URI is then constrained by the degree of randomness and uniqueness

Marshall                 Expires August 30, 2009               [Page 10]

Internet-Draft          GEOPRIV LbyR Requirements          February 2009

   applied to it.  In this case, it may be important to protect the
   actual location information from inspection by an intermediate node.
   Construction of a location URI in such a way as to not reveal any
   domain, user, or device specific information, with the goal of making
   the location URI appear bland, uninteresting, and generic, may be
   helpful to some degree in order to keep location information more
   difficult to detect.  Thus, obfuscating the location URI in this way
   may provide some level of safeguard against the undetected stripping
   off of what would otherwise be evident location information, since it
   forces a dereference operation at the location dereference server, an
   important step for the purpose of providing statistics, audit trails,
   and general logging for many different kinds of location based

4.  High-Level Requirements

   This document outlines the requirements for an Location by Reference
   mechanism which can be used by a number of underlying protocols.
   Requirements here address two general types of such protocols, a
   general location configuration protocol, and a general location
   dereferencing protocol.

   The requirements are broken into two sections.

4.1.  Requirements for a Location Configuration Protocol

   Below, we summarize high-level design requirements needed for a
   location-by-reference mechanism as used within the location
   configuration protocol.

   C1. Location URI support:  The location configuration protocol MUST
      support a location reference in URI form.

      Motivation: A standardized location reference mechanism increases

   C2. Location URI expiration:  When a location URI has a limited
      validity interval, its lifetime MUST be indicated.

      Motivation: A location URI may not intend to represent a location
      forever, and the identifier eventually may need to be recycled, or
      may be subject to a specific window of validity, after which the
      location reference fails to yield a location, or the location is
      determined to be kept confidential.

   C3. Location URI cancellation:  The location configuration protocol
      MUST support the ability to request a cancellation of a specific
      location URI.

      Motivation: If the client determines that in its best interest to
      destroy the ability for a location URI to effectively be used to
      dereference a location, then there should be a way to nullify the
      location URI.

   C4. Location Information Masking:  The location URI MUST, through
      randomization and uniqueness, ensure that the location URI does
      not contain location information specific components.

      Motivation: It is important to keep any location information
      masked from a casual observing node.

Marshall                 Expires August 30, 2009               [Page 12]

Internet-Draft          GEOPRIV LbyR Requirements          February 2009

   C5. User Identity Protection:  The location URI MUST NOT contain
      information that identifies the user or device.  Examples include
      phone extensions, badge numbers, first or last names.

      Motivation: It is important to protect caller identity or contact
      address from being included in the form of the location URI itself
      when it is generated.

   C6. Reuse indicator:  There SHOULD be a way to allow a client to
      control whether a location URI can be resolved once only, or
      multiple times.

      Motivation: The client requesting a location URI may request a
      location URI which has a 'one-time-use' only characteristic, as
      opposed to a location URI having multiple reuse capability.

   C7. Selective disclosure:  The location configuration protocol MUST
      provide a mechanism to control what information is being disclosed
      about the Target.

      Motivation: The Rule Maker has to be in control of how much
      information is revealed during the dereferencing step as part of
      the privacy features.

   C8. Location URI Not guessable:  As a default, the location
      configuration protocol MUST return location URIs that are random
      and unique throughout the indicated lifetime.  A location URI with
      128-bits of randomness is RECOMMENDED.

      Motivation: Location URIs should be constructed in such a way that
      an adversary cannot guess them and dereference them without having
      ever obtained them from the Target.

   C9. Location URI Optional:  In the case of user-provided
      authorization policies, where anonymous or non-guessable location
      URIs are not warranted, the location configuration protocol MAY
      support optional location URI forms, (such as embedded location
      information within the location URI).

      Motivation: Users don't always have such strict privacy
      requirements, but may opt to specify their own location URI, or
      components thereof.

4.2.  Requirements for a Location Dereference Protocol

   Below, we summarize high-level design requirements needed for a
   location-by-reference mechanism as used within the location
   dereference protocol.

Marshall                 Expires August 30, 2009               [Page 13]

Internet-Draft          GEOPRIV LbyR Requirements          February 2009

   D1. Location URI support:  The location dereference protocol MUST
      support a location reference in URI form.

      Motivation: It is required that there be consistency of use
      between location URI formats used in an configuration protocol and
      those used by a dereference protocol.

   D2. Authentication:  The location dereference protocol MUST include
      mechanisms to authenticate both the client and the server.

      Motivation: Although the implementations must support
      authentication of both parties, any given transaction has the
      option not to authenticate one or both parties.

   D3.  Dereferenced Location Form:  The value returned by the
      dereference protocol MUST contain a well-formed PIDF-LO document.

      Motivation: This is in order to ensure that adequate privacy rules
      can be adhered to, since the PIDF-LO format comprises the
      necessary structures to maintain location privacy.

   D4. Location URI Repeated Use:  The location dereference protocol
      MUST support the ability for the same location URI to be resolved
      more than once, based on dereference server configuration.

      Motivation: Through dereference server configuration, for example,
      it may be useful to not only allow more than one dereference
      request, but, in some cases, to also limit the number of
      dereferencing attempts by a client.

   D5. Location Confidentiality:  The location dereference protocol MUST
      support confidentiality protection of messages sent between the
      Location Recipient and the location server.

      Motivation: The location URI indicates what type of security
      protocol has to be provided.  An example is a location URI using a
      HTTPS URI scheme.

5.  Security Considerations

   The method of constructing the location URI to include randomized
   components helps to prevent adversaries from obtaining location
   information without ever retrieving a location URI.  In the
   possession model, a location URI, regardless of its construction, if
   made publically available, implies no safeguard against anyone being
   able to dereference and get the location.  Care has to be paid when
   distribution such a location URI to the trusted location recipients.
   When this aspect is of concern then the authorization model has to be
   chosen.  Even in this model care has to be taken on how to construct
   the authorization policies to ensure that only those parties have
   access to location information that are considered trustworthy enough
   to enforce the basic rule set that is attached to location
   information in a PIDF-LO document.

   Any location URI, by necessity, indicates the server (name) that
   hosts the location information.  Knowledge of the server in some
   specific domain could therefore reveal something about the location
   of the Target.  This kind of threat may be mitigated somewhat by
   introducing another layer of indirection: namely the use of a
   (remote) presence server.
