Overview Edit

The IETF Geographic Location/Privacy (GEOPRIV) working group is chartered to develop and refine representations of location in Internet protocols, and to analyze the authorization, integrity, and privacy requirements that must be met when these representations of location are created, stored, and used. The group creates and refines mechanisms for the transmission of these representations that address the requirements that have been identified.

The working group works with other IETF working groups and other standards development organizations that are building applications that use location information to ensure that the requirements are well understood and met, and that no additional security or privacy issues related to location are left unaddressed as these location information is incorporated into other protocols.

It remains a goal of the GEOPRIV working group to deliver specifications of broad applicability that will become mandatory to implement for IETF protocols that are location aware.
