A critical step in enabling Internet hosts to access location-based services is to provision those hosts with information about their own location. This is accomplished via a Location Configuration Protocol (LCP) [RFC5687], which allows a location provider (e.g., a local access network) to inform a host about its location.

         Location Configuration Extensions for Policy Management


   Current location configuration protocols are capable of provisioning    an Internet host with a location URI that refers to the host's    location.  These protocols lack a mechanism for the target host to    inspect or set the privacy rules that are applied to the URIs they    distribute.  This document extends the current location configuration    protocols to provide hosts with a reference to the rules that are    applied to a URI so that the host can view or set these rules.
