RealTime Internet Peering for Telephony (RIPT) Compatibility with webRTC
                draft-rosenberg-dispatch-ript-webrtc-00

Abstract

   The Real-Time Internet Peering for Telephony (RIPT) Protocol defines
   a technique for establishing, terminating and otherwise managing
   calls between entities in differing administrative domains.  The RIPT
   Inbound extension brings this to end clients, such as a browser.
   However, it defines a different technique for media that cannot
   directly use the webRTC APIs, and require a change to them.  This
   specification provides an extension to RIPT for webRTC compatibility,
   enabling media to flow from browser to server as is done with RIPT,
   or from browser to browser as is done with webRTC.  It also discusses
   techniques for sending e2e encrypted media.

1.  Introduction

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

2.  Overview of Operation

   Basic idea: The TG indicates that this compatibility mode is
   supported on the TG.  The handler is also indicates that this mode is
   supported.  The handler includes its own ICE candidates.  This means
   we provide the ICE candidates at "registration" time and not before
   the call.  This is necessary to facilitate the many call move and
   other operations in RIPT-inbound.  This also means the browser needs
   to keep them fresh all of the time, rather than just before the call
   [[is this posible with current API??]].

   Since the media is sent by DTLS-SRTP and not embedded as media chunks
   in a client-to-server HTTPS connection, the browser includes its
   fingerprint in the handler as well.

   To initiate this compatibility mode for media, the server indicates
   as such in the directive.  It can only put it in a directive if the
   handler that is selected, supports the mode.  The directive includes
   the ICE candidates from the peer.  This will trigger the client to
   perform ICE and send media (which will be DTLS-SRTP).

   RIPT itself doesnt convey the ICE candidates in the server to server
   link, since its only through handler whih is static for a device and
   not per-call.  So we'd either need to move them, develop a separate
   way to convey them, or assume SIP or some other technique is used for
   server to server calls.
