The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) is the subject of numerous
specifications that have been produced by the IETF. It can be

under the SIP umbrella, briefly summarizes each, and groups
them into categories.
Working group summary.
There is strong consensus in the working group to publish this document.

will need to be regularly revised, as and when sufficient new SIP material
is published to justify a new version.
The document shepherd for this document was Keith Drage. The responsible
