Technical Summary In WebRTC contexts, peers send media traffic to each other. To prevent attacks on peers, endpoints have to ensure the remote peer is willing to receive traffic. This is performed both when the session is first established to the remote peer and periodically for the duration of the session. This document defines a method for confirming consent using a new STUN usage. Working Group Summary One of the consistent issues within the WebRTC ecosystem is the extent to which requirements from deployed systems impact the working of the protocol. In this context, discussion of how ICE-lite entities should behave consumed a good bit of time, but I believe that the document represents the WG's general understanding. After a set of external reviews by directorates the documented was updated and a new working group last call issued. No new issues were identified during the final working group last call. Document Quality The document was reviewed by a number of implementors and implementations are planned or under way. This document did not require expert review of the type mentioned above, but Christer Holmberg's review is called out in the document for its thoroughness. Personnel Ted Hardie is the Document Shepherd; Alissa Cooper is the Responsible Area Director.
