Technical Summary The emergency services architecture developed in the IETF Emergency Context Resolution with Internet Technology (ECRIT) working group describes an architecture where location information is provided by access networks to end points or VoIP service providers in order to determine the correct dial string and information to route the call to a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). For determining the PSAP Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) the usage of the Location-to- Service Translation (LoST) Protocol is envisioned. This document provides a problem statement and lists requirements for situations where the Internet Access Provider (IAP) and/or the Internet Service Provider (ISP) are only willing to disclose limited or no location information. Working Group Summary There is consensus in the WG to publish this document. Document Quality The document has been reviewed by ECRIT working group members and feedback was provided by participants from various emergency services workshops. Personnel Marc Linsner is the document shepherd for this document.
