The Session Announcement Protocol (SAP) has been specified in such a way that authentication and privacy can be assured. However the algorithms and mechanisms to achieve such security are not prescribed in the current draft. This document extends the SAP protocol, by describing specific algorithms and formats of authentication and encryption formats based on PGP and PKCS#7 standards. It is a companion document to draft-ietf-mmusic-sap. This document is a product of the Multiparty Multimedia Session Control (MMUSIC) working group of the Internet Engineering Task Force Comments are solicited and should be addressed to the working group's mailing list at and/or the authors.
