Abstract
The Rich Presence Information Data Format for the Session Initiation
Protocol (SIP) (RPIDS) adds elements to the Presence Information Data
Format (PIDF) that provide additional information about the
presentity and its contacts. This information can be translated into
call routing behavior or be delivered to watchers. The information is
designed so that much of it can be derived automatically, e.g., from
calendar files or user activity.
1 Introduction
The PIDF definition [1] describes a basic presence information data
format for exchanging presence information in CPIM-compliant systems.
It consists of a <presence> root element, zero or more <tuple>
elements carrying presence information, zero or more <note> elements
and zero or more extension elements from other name spaces. Each
tuple defines a basic status of either "open" or "closed".
This document provides additional status information for presentities
and defines a Rich Presence Information Data Format for Presence
Based on the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) (RPIDS) to convey this
information.
This extension has three main goals:
1. Provide rich presence indication that is at least as
powerful as common commercial presence systems. Such
feature-parity simplifies transition to CPIM-compliant
systems, both in terms of user acceptance and protocol
conversion.
2. Maintain backwards-compatibility with PIDF, so that PIDF-
only watchers and gateways can continue to function
properly, naturally without access to the functionality
described here.
We make no assumptions how the information in the RPIDS is generated.
Experience has shown that users are not always diligent about
updating their presence status. Thus, we want to make it as easy as
possible to derive RPIDS information from other information sources,
such as calendars, the status of communication devices such as
telephones, typing activity and physical presence detectors as
commonly found in energy-management systems.
The information in a presence document can be generated by a single
entity or can be composed from information published by multiple
entities.
Many of the elements correspond to data commonly found in personal
calendars. Thus, we attempted to align some of the extensions with
the usage found in calendar formats such as iCal [12] and xCal [13],
as noted below.
Note that PIDF documents and this extension can be used in two
different contexts, namely by the presentity to publish its presence
status and by the presence server to notify some set of watchers. The
presence server MAY compose, translate or filter the published
presence state before delivering customized presence information to
the watcher. For example, it may merge presence information from
multiple PUAs, remove whole elements, translate values in elements or
remove information from elements. Mechanisms that filter calls and
other communications to the presentity can subscribe to this presence
information just like a regular watcher and in turn generate
automated rules, such as scripts [14], that govern the actual
communications behavior of the presentity.
The flow diagram below illustrates this process.
presentity
|
--> publish
|
--> PA (filter)
--> notification 1 to A, B, C
--> notification 2 to D, E
--> notification 3 to F
--> notification 4 to script gen.
2 RPIDS Features
Below, we summarize and motivate the major additional features that
RPIDS adds to PIDF.
The PIDF definition does not clearly describe what a <tuple>
represents. We add an <class> attribute (Section 6.4) that allows a
presentity to label tuples in ways that make sense to the presentity,
e.g., to group similar tuples by name.
While the PIDF definition describes which means of communications are
available for a presentity, it does not describe the activity that
the presentity is currently engaged in. The <activity> (Section 6.2)
element adds this information.
The <idle> (Section 6.7) element indicates when the device was last
used or simply whether it has been idle.
To help the watcher gauge the appropriateness of different types of
communications, we indicate the type of place the user is currently
in, via the <placetype> element (Section 6.9) and hint at the privacy
available via <privacy>.
PIDF defines a <timestamp> element indicating the date and time of
the status change of a tuple. RPIDS adds a validity period for status
values, <from> and <until>, as a hint how long the current status is
likely to be valid (Section 6.5 and Section 6.13).
Information about a tuple can be conveyed using the <card>, <info>
and <icon> elements.
An important sub-case is that a presentity is interruptible only
under unusual circumstances, after mediation by some, typically
human, authority such as a secretary or supervisor. We allow the
presentity to convey that certain contact addresses actually belong
to a different person, presumably one that can either interrupt the
presentity or otherwise assist. The <relationship> (Section 6.11)
element allows to indicate that a particular tuple refers to a
different principal or presentity.
The PIDF document format [1] defines a <contact> element which may
appear once inside every <tuple> element. The content of the
<contact> element encodes the CONTACT ADDRESS and CONTACT MEANS as
defined in [3]. The <contact> element is defined to be an URI. This
URI can be of any URI scheme. Some URI schemes uniquely identify the
application the tuple intends to describe (e.g., "im" URIs). However,
this is not be the case for all schemes. For example, a SIP URI can
represent different kinds of applications, including voice, video, or
messaging. If it is not known by other means, it can be hard for
applications processing the presence document containing only SIP URI
contact addresses to know what particular application the tuple
intends to describe. Also, watchers receiving presence information
would benefit for getting more descriptive information about what
particular communication means or applications are supported by the
presentity.
We generally assume that the presence element describes a single
human being or a group of humans. However, this is not required. A
presentity can also be a "bot" or "avatar", for example.
Note that this document does not defined a new content type. Rather,
it inherits the content type from [1], namely application/cpim-
pidf+xml
3 Scope
This extension does not replace media negotiation mechanisms defined
for SIP (e.g. SDP [4]), therefore media negotiation (e.g., choice of
voice and video codecs) MUST be performed according to [5]. This
extension is only aimed to give the watchers hints about the
presentity's preferences, willingness and capabilities to communicate
before watchers initiate SIP-based communication with the presentity.
4 Terminology and Conventions
This memo makes use of the vocabulary defined in the IMPP Model
document [3]. Terms such as CLOSED, INSTANT MESSAGE, OPEN, PRESENCE
SERVICE, PRESENTITY, WATCHER, and WATCHER USER AGENT in the memo are
used in the same meaning as defined therein. The key words MUST,
MUSTNOT, REQUIRED, SHOULD, SHOULDNOT, RECOMMENDED, MAY, and OPTIONAL
in this document are to be interpreted as described in BCP XX, RFC
2119 [6].
5 The Meaning of "open" and "closed"
PIDF describes the basic status values of "open" or "closed" only as
"have meanings of general availability for other communications
means". We define "closed" in our context as meaning that
communication to the contact address will in all likelihood not
succeed, is undesired or will not reach the intended party. (For
example, a presentity may include a hotel phone number as a contact.
After check-out, the phone number will still ring, but reach the
chambermaid or the next guest. Thus, it would be declared "closed".)
For "pres" contacts, "closed" means that no presence status
information is available.
The interpretation of "closed" was chosen since there is no
other status value to indicate that a communications
address is not reachable. Omitting the <contact> element
does not work since it would confuse watchers that have not
previously seen an "open" status for the same contact
address.
6 RPIDS Elements
6.1 Introduction
Below, we describe the RPIDS elements in detail. <activity>, <card>
<category>, <class>, <from>, <icon> <idle> <info> <label>,
<placetype>, <privacy>, <relationship>, <timed-status>, <until>
extend <status>.
In general, it is highly unlikely that a presentity will publish or
announce all of these elements at the same time. Rather, these
elements were chosen to give the presentity maximum flexibility in
deriving this information from existing sources, such as calendaring
tools, device activity sensors or location trackers, as well as to
manually configure this information.
The namespace URI for elements defined by this specification is a URN
[7], using the namespace identifier 'ietf' defined by [8] and
extended by [9]:
urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:sip-rpids
6.2 Activity Element
The <activity> indication describes what the presentity is currently
doing. This can be quite helpful to the watcher in judging how
appropriate a communication attempt is and which means of
communications is most likely to succeed and not annoy the
presentity. The activity indications correspond roughly to the
category field in calendar entries, such as Section 4.8.1.2 of RFC
2445 [9].
Use of an enumerated, but extensible, set of activity
categories simplifies automated generation and processing
of presence information. The categories can be readily
selected from a drop-down list by the user or translated
from the corresponding activity field in calendars.
Recipients of this information can render at least a subset
as icons, automatically translate them into different
languages or convert them to sound "jingles" and speech, or
use them to generate call processing rules.
An activity indication consists of one or more values drawn from the
list below, any other token string or IANA-registered values (Section
10). Communities of interest such as a profession or an organization
may define additional activity labels for their internal use.
On-the-phone: The presentity is talking on the telephone. This
activity is included since it can often be derived
automatically.
Away: The presentity is physically away from the device
location. This activity was included since it can often be
derived automatically from security systems, energy
management systems or entry badge systems.
Appointment: The presentity has a calendar appointment.
Holiday: This is a scheduled national or local holiday. This
information can typically be derived automatically from
calendars.
Meal: The presentity is scheduled for a meal. This activity
category can often be generated automatically from a
calendar.
Meeting: This activity category can often be generated
automatically from a calendar.
Steering: The presentity is controlling a vehicle, ship or
plane.
In-transit: The presentity is riding in a vehicle, such as a
car, but not steering.
Travel: The presentity is on a business or personal trip, but
not necessarily in-transit. This category can often be
generated automatically from a calendar.
Vacation: This activity category can often be generated
automatically from a calendar.
Sleeping: This activity category can often be generated
automatically from a calendar or local time information.
Busy: User is busy, without further details. This activity
category would typically be indicated manually.
Permant-absence: Presentity will not return for the foreseeable
future, e.g., because it is no longer working for the
company.
6.3 Card
The <card> element provides a URI pointing to a business card, e.g.,
in LDIF or vCard format.
6.4 Class
The 'class' attribute describes the class of the tuple. Multiple
tuples can have the same class name within a presence document. The
naming of classes is left to the presentity. The presentity can use
this information to group similar tuples or to convey information
that the presence agent can use for filtering.
The class description is similar in spirit to the 'class'
attribute of XML elements, used to support Cascading Style
Sheets.
6.5 From Element
The <from> element indicates how long the current status has been
valid, expressed as an absolute time.
6.6 Icon
The <icon> element provides a URI pointing to an image (icon)
representing the tuple. The watcher MAY use this information to
represent the tuple.
6.7 Idle Element
The <idle> records the absolute time and date the communication
device was last used. This provides an indication as to how likely a
user is to answer the device. A device that has not been used in a
while may still be OPEN, but a watcher may choose to first contact a
device that is both OPEN and not marked as idle.
The <idle> element can be empty if the presentity wants to indicate
that the device has not been used for a while, but does not want to
reveal the precise duration:
<idle/>
The <idle> SHOULD be included in the presence document if the idle
time exceeds a user-setable threshold, with a RECOMMENDED default
value of 10 minutes. Configuration MUST include the option to omit
the timestamp.
6.8 Info
The <info> element provides a URI pointing to general information
about the tuple, e.g., a web page.
6.9 Type of Place Element
The <placetype> element describes the type of place the presentity is
currently at. This offers the watcher an indication what kind of
communication is likely to be appropriate. We define an initial set
of values below:
home: The presentity is in a private or residential setting, not
necessarily the personal residence of the presentity, e.g.,
including hotel or a friend's home.
office: The presentity is in a business setting, such as an
office.
public: The presentity is in a public area such as a shopping
mall, street, park, public building, train station, airport
or in public conveyance such as a bus, train, plane or
ship.
This list can be augmented by free-text values or additional IANA-
registered values (Section 10).
The placetype element can be used by logic executing on the
watcher or by a composer to filter, sort and label tuples.
For example, a composer may have rules that limit the
publication of "home" tuples to a subset of the watchers.
6.10 Privacy Element
The <privacy> element indicates whether third parties may be able to
hear or view parts of the communication.
public: Others may be able to see or hear the communications.
private: Inappropriate individuals are not likely to see or hear
the communications.
quiet: The presentity is in a place such as a library,
restaurant, place-of-worship, or theater that discourages
noise, conversation and other distractions.
This indication is not limited to voice communications. For example,
a presentity might label her privacy as "quiet" when giving a talk,
since it would be inappropriate if an instant message popped up on
the laptop screen that is being projected for the audience.
The placetype element can be used by logic executing on the
watcher or by a composer to filter, sort and label tuples.
For example, a composer may have rules that limit the
publication of tuples labeled as "quiet" to a select subset
of the watchers.
6.11 Relationship Element
The <relationship> element designates the type of relationship an
alternate contact has with the presentity. This element is provided
only if the tuple refers to somebody other than the presentity.
Relationship values include "family", "associate" (e.g., for a
colleague), "assistant", "supervisor". Other free-text values and
additional IANA-registered values (Section 10) can be used as well.
The <contact> element for tuples labeled with a relationship can
contain either a communication URI such as "im", "sip"/"sips",
"h323", "tel" or "mailto", or a presence URI, such as "pres" or
"sip".
6.12 Timed Status Element
The <timed-status> element describes status information that is
either no longer valid or covers some future timeperiod.
Timed status cannot be expressed with <tuples> elements
where the period between <status> since PIDF parsers would
not be able to distinguish current from future or past
information. It is occasionally useful to represent past
information since it may be the only known presence
information; it may give watchers an indication of the
current status. For example, indicating that the presentity
was at a meeting that ended an hour ago indicates that the
presentity is likely in transit at the current time.
6.13 Until Element
The <until> element indicates how long the current basic status (open
or closed) is likely to be valid, expressed as an absolute time.
This indication allows the watcher to make better decisions. For
example, if a presentity indicates that it is likely to be
unreachable for an extended period of time, the watcher may decide to
request assistance from somebody else, rather than waiting for the
presentity to return.
Often, the duration of the status information is not known precisely.
Thus, it is helpful to indicate the precision, here expressed in
seconds. For example, an absence of "a few hours" can easily be
expressed as a time some hours into the future, with a precision of
7200 seconds.
An absolute time was chosen to simplify integration with
calendaring applications. This combination appears to be
sematically cleaner than enumerating various measurement
units such as "months", "weeks", "days" or "hours".
Both the <from> and <until> information might be derived from
calendar information, reflecting the start and end time of an
activity. (Examples include the Date Time Start and Date Time End
properties of RFC 2445. For simplicity, RPIDS only supports single
events, without repetition.)
Any statements such as anticipated validity are not historical facts
and are forward-looking statements that involve risks and
uncertainties; actual results may differ from the forward-looking
statements.

9 Security Considerations
The security considerations in [1] apply, as well as [11]. Compared
to PIDF, this presence document format reveals additional information
that can be highly sensitive. Beyond traditional security measures to
protect confidentiality and integrity, systems should offer a means
to selectively reveal information to particular watchers and to
inspect the information that is being published, particularly if it
is generated automatically from other sources, such as calendars or
sensors.
Like any information retrieved by reference, the information provided
in the <card>, <icon> and <info> elements may refer to data types
that expose the watcher to security risks.
10 IANA Considerations
This document calls for IANA to:
o register two new XML namespace URNs per [9];
o establish registry for activity categories (Section 6.2),
place types (Section 6.9), and relationships (Section 6.11).
Note that this document does not need a new content type. It inherits
the content type from [1], namely application/cpim-pidf+xml
10.1 URN Sub-Namespace Registration for

10.3 Place Type, Device Type, Categories, Relationships
This document creates new IANA registries for categories, device
types, place types and relationships. All are XML tokens. Registered
tokens must be documented at the time of registration, as most
descriptions are expected to be brief.
The SIMPLE working group, or, if no longer available, the SIP working
group should be consulted prior to registration.

The document reflects the discussion on the SIMPLE mailing list, with
contributions from many individuals. Markus Isomaki, Hisham
Khartabil, Jon Peterson and Brian Rosen provided detailed comments
and suggestions. The notion of external references in the <card>,
<icon> and <info> elements is an evolution of the BINPIDF proposal by
Khartabil et al.
