From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: IETF-Announce <email@example.com> Cc: RFC Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org>, avtcore mailing list <email@example.com>, avtcore chair <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Encryption of Header Extensions in the Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol (SRTP)' to Proposed Standard (draft-ietf-avtcore-srtp-encrypted-header-ext-05.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Encryption of Header Extensions in the Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol (SRTP)' (draft-ietf-avtcore-srtp-encrypted-header-ext-05.txt) as Proposed Standard This document is the product of the Audio/Video Transport Core Maintenance Working Group.

Technical Summary: The Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol (SRTP) provides authentication, but not encryption, of the headers of Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP) packets. However, RTP header extensions may carry sensitive information for which participants in multimedia sessions want confidentiality. This document provides a mechanism, extending the mechanisms of SRTP, to selectively encrypt RTP header extensions in SRTP. This document updates RFC 3711, the Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol specification, to require that all SRTP encryption transforms specify how RTP header extensions are to be encrypted. Working Group Summary: This document went through two working group last call. As a result of the first one there were proposals to add some technical changes that were consented in the second working group last call. Document Quality: The document got good reviews from AVTCORE members including SRTP and security experts. Personnel: Roni Even is the Document Shepherd and the Responsible Area Director is Robert Sparks.
