1. Evaluator: Andreas Matheus, Secure Dimensions GmbH
2. Submission: 12-128r1


1. Requirement: n/a
2. Implementation Specification Section number: n/a
3. Criticality: Minor
4. Comments/justifications for changes: Please provide security

This submission describes a ³self-contained, single-file, cross-platform,
serverless, transactional, open source RDBMS data container with table
definitions, relational integrity constraints, an SQL API exposed via a ³C²
CLI and JDBC, and an XML manifest that together act as an exchange and
direct-use format for multiple types of geospatial data including vector
features, individual rasters and tile matrix pyramids, especially on mobile
/ hand held devices in disconnected or limited network connectivity
environments.² Because the anticipated use is especially on mobile /handheld
devices, an outline about the risks involved seem to be of interest.

As it is good practice to follow other standardization organizations such as
OASIS and IETF, I do encourage the submitting organizations to provide
security considerations outlining how security regarding confidentiality,
integrity, authentication and authorization could be achieved to protect the
assets from the GeoPackage.
