Geo-WHOIS


Situation

Situation

  • Apps want location information for users

    • Content localization, LBS, fraud mitigation, …

  • They can’t ask the networks, so they guess

    • WHOIS, traceroute, WiFi/cell tower, …


Problem

Problem

  • Apps get low-quality information

  • Subscribers get degraded service

  • Operators don’t have a good channel to fix problems

  • Interim solutions are doing very bad things for privacy


Solution

Solution (?)

geoloc: https://lis.example.org:4802/

geoloc: geo:42.389984,-71.1471;u=2500

  • Add an explicit geolocation field to WHOIS

  • Contents: URI pointing to location resource

    • HELD for granular location (prefix, address) [RFC5985]

    • GEO for static, generic location [RFC5870]

  • Indirection allows operator control of privacy

  • Proposals under consideration in RIPE, APNIC
