The Diameter base protocol leverages either IPsec or TLS for integrity and confidentiality between two Diameter peers, and allows the peers to communicate through relay and proxy agents. Relay agents perform message routing, and other than routing AVPs, do not modify Diameter messages. Proxy agents, on the other hand, implement policy enforcement, and actively modify Diameter messages.
