This document describes the representation of identity information in
POLICY_DATA object for supporting policy based admission control in
the Resource ReSerVation Protocol (RSVP).  The goal of identity
representation is to allow a process on a system to securely identify
the owner and the application of the communicating process (e.g., user
id) and convey this information in RSVP messages (PATH or RESV) in a
secure manner.  We describe the encoding of identities as RSVP policy
element.  We describe the processing rules to generate identity policy
elements for multicast merged flows.  Subsequently, we describe
representations of user identities for Kerberos and Public Key based
user authentication mechanisms.  In summary, we describe the use of
this identity information in an operational setting.

This memo corrects an RSVP POLICY_DATA P-Type codepoint assignment
error and a field size definition error in ErrorValue in RFC 2752.

This document is a product of the Resource Allocation Protocol Working
Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
