I welcome comments on the following draft.
title: User Profile Information Protocol
We present here a protocol in which edge network equipments, also
known as IP Services devices, Broadband RASes, Edge Routers and
so forth, can inform surrogates or traffic interception devices
extended information about the user, such as geographic location,
QoS policy, fully qualified login (name(_at_)domain(_dot_)name) and start
stop times (or its equivalent for non-session based users).
The User Profile Information Protocol, herein called UPIF, allows
services providers, access providers and content delivery
networks to provide personalized or differentiated treatment to each
user individually, and also to enhance accounting considerably.
