Technical Summary

  This document discusses how current DNSSD protocols can leak users' private information. It goes into detail on some specific use-cases that would benefit from improved privacy and security. This document is meant as guidelines that the DNSSD working group will follow when defining a standard for privacy-preserving service discovery.

Working Group Summary

   There was controversy in how to build a solution to these privacy concerns, and the working group therefore chose to start with writing a requirements document, which is this draft. This draft was not controversial in the working group.

Document Quality

   This document only discusses requirements, and does so pretty well.

Personnel

   David Schinazi is the Document Shepherd (and co-chair of the WG)
   Éric Vyncke is the Responsible Area Director.
