 A Mechanism for Transporting User to User Call Control Information in
                                  SIP
                       draft-ietf-cuss-sip-uui-15

Abstract

   There is a class of applications which benefit from using SIP to
   exchange User to User Information (UUI) data during session
   establishment.  This information, known as call control UUI data, is
   a small piece of data inserted by an application initiating the
   session, and utilized by an application accepting the session.  The
   syntax and semantics for the UUI data used by a specific application.
   This UUI data is opaque to SIP and its function is unrelated to any
   basic SIP function.  This document defines a new SIP header field,
   User-to-User, to transport UUI data, along with an extension
   mechanism.
