Subject: Re: [emergency] FW: International Alerting - IETF

There is a considerable amount of standards work completed or in progress in the IETF related to emergency services. Much of this work has to do with how emergency information is created, transmitted, packaged, etc as part of the internet infrastructure. Examples are storing location of an IP address as part of DHCP, creation and transmission of location for an IP enabled phone (VoIP issues), Emergency Context Resolution with Internet Technologies (ECRIT), Telephone Number Mapping (ENUM), Session Initiation Protocol (SI)) Location Conveyance (uses GML), Presence Identity Data Formal - Location Object (uses GML), Location-to-Service Translation Protocol (LoST - uses GML) and on and on.
Much of this work began before or during the CAP 1.0 effort. The work of the IETF in this area is still evolving as they look to geo-enable other facets of the infrastructure of the internet.
Any one of these internet standards could provide content to generate a CAP message.

Subject: [emergency] FW: International Alerting - IETF

I came across this yesterday, and thought I will bring it to the TCís attention.

In addition, ISOCís Chairman, Fred Baker, and former Chairman, Brian Carpenter, have created an Internet Draft within the IETF process to propose a way in which people could be warned of an impending event in a geographic region. This is similar to and may use services such as the US Emergency Alert System, but differs in that message distribution is targeted only to the affected locality. A URL for this Internet-Draft
