                         Transports for WebRTC
                    draft-ietf-rtcweb-transports-09

Abstract

   This document describes the data transport protocols used by WebRTC,
   including the protocols used for interaction with intermediate boxes
   such as firewalls, relays and NAT boxes.

1.  Introduction

   WebRTC is a protocol suite aimed at real time multimedia exchange
   between browsers, and between browsers and other entities.

   WebRTC is described in the WebRTC overview document,
   [I-D.ietf-rtcweb-overview], which also defines terminology used in
   this document, including the terms "WebRTC device" and "WebRTC
   browser".

   This document focuses on the data transport protocols that are used
   by conforming implementations, including the protocols used for
   interaction with intermediate boxes such as firewalls, relays and NAT
   boxes.
