rfc7879-12

As required by RFC 4858, this is the current template for the Document 
Shepherd Write-Up.

Changes are expected over time. This version is dated 24 February 2012.

(1) What type of RFC is being requested (BCP, Proposed Standard,
Internet Standard, Informational, Experimental, or Historic)?

Intended status: Standards Track

Why is this the proper type of RFC? 

The document contains normative procedures.

Is this type of RFC indicated in the
title page header?

Yes.

(2) The IESG approval announcement includes a Document Announcement
Write-Up. Please provide such a Document Announcement Write-Up. Recent
examples can be found in the "Action" announcements for approved
documents. The approval announcement contains the following sections:

Technical Summary

Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Back-to-Back User Agents (B2BUAs) often act on the media plane, rather than just on the signaling path. This means that B2BUAs often act on the media path leading to separate media legs that the B2BUA correlates and bridges together. The document describes the behavior such B2BUAs can adhere to when acting on the media plane that uses a Secure Real-time Transport (SRTP) security context set up with the Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) protocol.

Working Group Summary

The WG path of this document was reasonably short and efficient. Several technical comments were made during reviews and all were resolved with consensus.
There is consensus in the STRAW WG to publish this document.

Document Quality

The guidelines and procedures in the document is based on input  and experience from the implementer community.

(6) Describe any specific concerns or issues that the Document Shepherd
has with this document that the Responsible Area Director and/or the
IESG should be aware of? For example, perhaps he or she is uncomfortable

is a need for it. In any event, if the WG has discussed those issues and
has indicated that it still wishes to advance the document, detail those
