         PASSporT Extension for Resource-Priority Authorization
                         draft-ietf-stir-rph-02

Abstract

   This document extends the STIR PASSporT specification to allow the
   inclusion of cryptographically-signed assertions of authorization for
   the values populated in the SIP 'Resource-Priority' header field,
   which is used for communications resource prioritization.

1.  Introduction

   PASSporT [I-D.ietf-stir-passport] is a token format based on JWT
   [RFC7519] for conveying cryptographically-signed information about
   the identities involved in personal communications; it is used with
   STIR [I-D.ietf-stir-rfc4474bis] 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
   allow cryptographic-signing of the SIP 'Resource-Priority' header
   field defined in [RFC4412].

   [RFC4412] defines the SIP 'Resource-Priority' header field for
   communications Resource Priority.  As specified in [RFC4412], the
   'Resource-Priority' header field may be used by SIP user agents
   [RFC3261], including, Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN)
   gateways and terminals, and SIP proxy servers to influence
   prioritization afforded to communication sessions,including PSTN
   calls.  However, the SIP 'Resource-Priority' header field could be
   spoofed and abused by unauthorized entities.
