This document describes a mechanism to enable HTTP Clients to provide an indication within a HTTP Connect request as to which protocol will be used within the tunnel established to the Server identified by the target resource. The tunneled protocol is declared using the Tunnel- Protocol HTTP Request header field. Label usage relating to the use of HTTP Connect by WebRTC clients (e.g. turn, webrtc) are described in this document.
