                 PASSporT Extension for Diverted Calls
                 draft-ietf-stir-passport-divert-04.txt

Abstract

   This document extends PASSporT, which conveys cryptographically-
   signed information about the people involved in personal
   communications, to include an indication that a call has been
   diverted from its original destination to a new one.  This
   information can greatly improve the decisions made by verification
   services in call forwarding scenarios.  Also specified here is an
   encapsulation mechanism for nesting a PASSporT within another
   PASSporT that assists relying parties in some diversion scenarios.

1.  Introduction

   PASSporT [RFC8225] is a token format based on JWT [RFC7519] for
   conveying cryptographically-signed information about the people
   involved in personal communications; it is used with STIR [RFC8224]
   to convey a signed assertion of the identity of the participants in
   real-time communications established via a protocol like SIP.  This
   specification extends PASSporT to include an indication that a call
   has been diverted from its originally destination to a new one.

   Although the STIR problem statement [RFC7340] is focused on
   preventing the impersonation of the caller's identity, which is a
   common enabler for threats such as robocalling and voicemail hacking
   on the telephone network today, it also provides a signature over the
   called number as the authentication service sees it.  As [RFC8224]
   Section 12.1 describes, this protection over the contents of the To
   header field is intended to prevent a class of cut-and-paste attacks.
   If Alice calls Bob, for example, Bob might attempt to cut-and-paste
