                  A Location Dereference Protocol Using                  HTTP-Enabled Location Delivery (HELD)

Abstract

   This document describes how to use the Hypertext Transfer Protocol    (HTTP) over Transport Layer Security (TLS) as a dereference protocol    to resolve a reference to a Presence Information Data Format Location    Object (PIDF-LO).  This document assumes that a Location Recipient    possesses a URI that can be used in conjunction with the HTTP-Enabled    Location Delivery (HELD) protocol to request the location of the    Target.
