Technical Summary This document is an update to the DHCP option format for coordinate- based geolocation (RFC 3825). It clarifies the geospatial meaning of the option, and adds an alternative interpretation (signaled by a version field) that is more suitable for many use cases. While RFC 3825 applies only to DHCPv4, this document adds support for DHCPv6. Working Group Summary There is fairly wide consensus in the working group that this document provides useful clarifications and extensions to the current RFC 3825 format for geolocation in DHCP. Document Quality The document has been reviewed by key participants from the GEOPRIV working group. Personnel Richard Barnes is the document shepherd. Robert Sparks is the responsible Area Director.
