Traversal of RTP through corporate firewalls has traditionally been complex, requiring the deployment of Session Border Controllers (SBCs) or wide open pinholes. This draft proposes a simple technique that allows WebRTC based RTP traffic to traverse firewalls without complex firewall configuration and without deployment of SBCs or other middleboxes.
