Technical Summary

   This document extends PASSporT, a token for conveying
   cryptographically-signed call information about personal
   communications, to include rich meta-data about a call and caller
   that can be signed and integrity protected, transmitted, and
   subsequently rendered to the called party.  This framework is
   intended to include and extend caller and call specific information
   beyond human-readable display name comparable to the "Caller ID"
   function common on the telephone network and is also enhanced with a
   integrity mechanism that is designed to protect the authoring and
   transport of this information for different authoritative use-cases.

Working Group Summary

  There is broad support for this document in the STIR WG.

  When work began on this document, the was some controversy about the
  integrity mechanism, bur consensus emerged for the solution in the
  document.  No one spoke against this approach for over two years.

Document Quality

  Many people have expressed an intention to implement this document.
