Technical Summary PASSporT is specified in RFC 8225 to convey cryptographically-signed information about the people involved in personal communications. This document extends PASSporT to include an indication that a call has been diverted from its original destination to a new one. This information can greatly improve the decisions made by verification services in call forwarding scenarios. Also specified here is an encapsulation mechanism for nesting a PASSporT within another PASSporT that assists relying parties in some diversion scenarios. Working Group Summary The STIR WG reached consensus, and there is strong support for publication of this document. Document Quality Several people have expressed interest in implementing this specification. Personnel Russ Housley is the document shepherd. Murray "Trouble" Kucherawy is the responsible Area Director.
