Subject: FYI: Proposed internet standard (RFC) for civic addresses in DHCP
A new Request for Comments is now available in online RFC libraries.
Title: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCPv4
and DHCPv6) Option for Civic Addresses
Author: H. Schulzrinne
Status: Proposed Standard
Date: November 2006
I-D Tag: draft-rfc4676bis-00.txt
RFC 4776 is being published to correct an error in the assignment of
the numeric value of the DHCPv6 option-code in RFC 4676 (Section 3.2).
This document obsoletes RFC 4676.
This document specifies a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCPv4
and DHCPv6) option containing the civic location of the client or the
DHCP server. The Location Configuration Information (LCI) includes
information about the country, administrative units such as states,
provinces, and cities, as well as street addresses, postal community
names, and building information. The option allows multiple
renditions of the same address in different scripts and languages.
This document is a product of the Geographic Location/Privacy
Working Group of the IETF.
This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the
"Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the
standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution
of this memo is unlimited.
