Technical Summary:

This document specifies the requirements for an end-to-end session identifier in IP-based multimedia communication networks.  This identifier would enable endpoints, intermediate devices, and management and monitoring systems to identify a session end-to-end across multiple SIP devices, hops, and administrative domains.


Working Group Summary:

The document has achieved working group consensus. 

One particular issue was on how much terminology to define in this document, and section 3 has been substantially worked upon within the working group.

There also has been significant discussion on the scoping of the work, and its applicability to more complex scenarios. In accordance with the charter, the work has been kept to the simpler scenarios, and the applicability to the more complex scenarios will be limited to whatever works as a result.


Document Quality:

There are no implementations as this is a requirements document. The working group is currently working on a solutions document in draft-ietf-insipid-session-id.


Personnel:

Keith Drage is the document shepherd. Richard Barnes is the responsible area director.
