Subject: [emergency] RE: Security/Privacy/Location payload (AKA CAP) Usecases from IETF

Title: [emergency] RE: Security/Privacy/Location payload (AKA CAP
Thanks Carl,

Starting with a range of sound use cases, especially those used in other standards, is better than a good idea.

As discused on the concall today:
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3693.txt -   Geopriv Requirements
Location-based services, navigation applications, emergency services,
   management of equipment in the field, and other location-dependent
   services need geographic location information about a Target (such as
   a user, resource or other entity).  There is a need to securely
   gather and transfer location information for location services, while
   at the same time protect the privacy of the individuals involved.

   This document focuses on the authorization, security and privacy
   requirements for such location-dependent services.  Specifically, it
   describes the requirements for the Geopriv Location Object (LO) and
   for the protocols that use this Location Object.  This LO is
   envisioned to be the primary data structure used in all Geopriv
   protocol exchanges to securely transfer location data.
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3694.txt - Threat Analysis of the Geopriv Protocol

   This document provides some analysis of threats against the Geopriv
   protocol architecture.  It focuses on protocol threats, threats that
   result from the storage of data by entities in the architecture, and
   threats posed by the abuse of information yielded by Geopriv.  Some
   security properties that meet these threats are enumerated as a
   reference for Geopriv requirements.
