        Location Configuration Extensions for Policy Management

Abstract

   Current location configuration protocols are capable of provisioning
   an Internet host with a location URI that refers to the host's
   location.  These protocols lack a mechanism for the target host to
   inspect or set the privacy rules that are applied to the URIs they
   distribute.  This document extends the current location configuration
   protocols to provide hosts with a reference to the rules that are
   applied to a URI so that the host can view or set these rules.

1.  Introduction

   A critical step in enabling Internet hosts to access location-based
   services is to provision those hosts with information about their own
   location.  This is accomplished via a Location Configuration Protocol
