From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: IETF-Announce <email@example.com> Cc: RFC Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org>, geopriv mailing list <email@example.com>, geopriv chair <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Using Device-provided Location-Related Measurements in Location Configuration Protocols' to Proposed Standard (draft-ietf-geopriv-held-measurements-09.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Using Device-provided Location-Related Measurements in Location Configuration Protocols' (draft-ietf-geopriv-held-measurements-09.txt) as Proposed Standard This document is the product of the Geographic Location/Privacy Working Group.

Technical Summary: A method is described by which a Device is able to provide location- related measurement data to a LIS within a request for location information. Location-related measurement information are observations concerning properties related to the position of a Device, which could be data about network attachment or about the physical environment. When a LIS generates location information for a Device, information from the Device can improve the accuracy of the location estimate. A basic set of location-related measurements are defined, including common modes of network attachment as well as assisted Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) parameters. Working Group Summary: There is strong consensus around this document in the working group. It is required for the HELD protocol to meet many use cases that are satisfied with proprietary protocols today. Document Quality: There are a few existing prototype implementations of the protocol. Prototype implementations were deployed at a few IETF meetings. The document references standards from several other SDOs, so the authors solicited reviews by experts on the relevant standards. The document has been updated to the satisfaction of those experts.
