> Filename:	 draft-cooper-web-tracking-opt-outs
> Revision:	 00
> Title:		 Overview of Universal Opt-Out Mechanisms for Web Tracking
> Creation_date:	 2011-03-07
> WG ID:		 Independent Submission
> Number_of_pages: 20
> Abstract:
> Web servers and the entities that operate them have long had the
> ability to track user agents as they access resources hosted across
> different web domains.  Concern over the privacy implications of such
> tracking has prompted recent work on a number of solutions that aim
> to provide a universal opt-out mechanism for web tracking that can be
> effectuated through a simple binary choice presented to users.
> This document provides an overview of the following mechanisms:
> permanent opt-out cookies, cookie blocking, domain blocking, a "Do
> Not Track" (DNT) HTTP header, and a Do Not Track Document Object
> Model (DOM) property.  The aim of this document is to describe each
> approach, the pros and cons of each, and areas where standardization
> may be necessary should each approach be further pursued, without
> making recommendations about which approach or approaches should be
> adopted.
