                 PASSporT Extension for Rich Call Data


   This document extends PASSporT, a token for conveying
   cryptographically-signed call information about personal
   communications, to include rich data that can be transmitted and
   subsequently rendered to users, extending identifying information
   beyond human-readable display name comparable to the "Caller ID"
   function common on the telephone network.  The element defined for
   this purpose, Rich Call Data (RCD), is an extensible object defined
   to either be used as part of STIR or with SIP Call-Info to include
   related information about calls that helps people decide whether to
   pick up the phone.  This signing of the RCD information is also
   enhanced with an integrity mechanism to optionally protect the
   handling of this information between authoritative and non-
   authoritative parties authoring and signing the Rich Call Data for
   support of different usage and content policies.

1.  Introduction

   PASSporT [RFC8225] is a token format based on JWT [RFC7519] for
   conveying cryptographically-signed information about the people
   involved in personal communications; it is used to convey a signed
   assertion of the identity of the participants in real-time
   communications established via a protocol like SIP [RFC8224].  The
   STIR problem statement [RFC7340] declared securing the display name
   of callers outside of STIR's initial scope, so baseline STIR provides
   no features for caller name.  This specification documents an
   optional mechanism for PASSporT and the associated STIR mechanisms
   which extends PASSporT to carry additional elements conveying richer
   information: information that is intended to be rendered to an end
   user to assist a called party in determining whether to accept or
   trust incoming communications.  This includes the name of the person
   on one side of a communications session, the traditional "Caller ID"
   of the telephone network, along with related display information that
   would be rendered to the called party during alerting, or potentially
   used by an automaton to determine whether and how to alert a called

   Traditional telephone network signaling protocols have long supported
   delivering a 'calling name' from the originating side, though in
   practice, the terminating side is often left to derive a name from
   the calling party number by consulting a local address book or an
   external database.  SIP similarly can carry a 'display-name' in the
   From header field value from the originating to terminating side,
   though it is an unsecured field that is not commonly trusted.  The
   same is true of information in the Call-Info header field.

   The baseline use case for this document will be extending PASSporT to
   provide cryptographic protection for the "display-name" field of SIP
   requests as well as further "rich call data" (RCD) about the caller,
   which includes the contents of the Call-Info header field or other
   data structures that can be added to the PASSporT.  This document
   furthermore specifies a third-party profile that would allow external
   authorities to convey rich information associated with a calling
   number via a new type of PASSporT.  Finally, this document describes
   how to preserve the integrity of the RCD in scenarios where there may
   be non-authoritative users that may be initiating and signing RCD and

Internet-Draft                     RCD                     November 2019

   therefore a constraint on the RCD data that a PASSporT can attest via
   certificate-level controls.

2.  Terminology

   In this document, the key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED",
   RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" are to be interpreted as
   described in [RFC2119] and [RFC6919].

3.  Overview of the use of the Rich Call Data PASSporT extension

   The main intended use of the signing of Rich Call Data (RCD) using
   STIR [RFC8224] and as a PASSporT extension [RFC8225] is from an
   entity that is associated with the originated with the call.  Either
   the caller themselves if they are authoritative, or a service
   provider, or a third-party service may be authoritative over the rich
   call data on behalf of the caller or service provider representing
   the caller.

   The RCD described in this document is of two main categories.  The
   first data is a more traditional set of info about a caller
   associated with "display-name" in SIP [RFC3261] and typically is the
   calling name that is a textual description of the caller.  The second
   data is a set of RCD that is defined as part of the jCard definitions
   or extensions to that data.  [I.D.wendt-sipcore-callinfo-rcd-00]
   describes the use of jCard as RCD with the "jcard" Call-Info purpose
   token.  Either or both of these two types of data can be incorporated
   into a "rcd" claim defined in this document.

   In addition to the type of RCD that can be signed, there are three
   normative modes of use of the signing of Rich Call Data (RCD).  The
   first and simplest mode is exclusively for when RCD content is
   direcly included as part of the claims (i.e. no URIs are included in
   the content).  In this mode the set of claims is signed via standard
   PASSporT [RFC8225] and SIP identity header [RFC8224] procedures.  The
   second mode is an extension of the first where a "rcd" claim is
   included and the content MAY or MAY NOT include URI external
   resources.  In this mode, a "rcdi" integrity claim MUST be included.
   This integrity claim is defined in this document and provides a
   digest of the content so that, particularly for the case where there
   is URI references in the RCD, the content of that RCD can be
   comprehensively validated that it was received as intended by the
   signer of the PASSporT.  The third mode is yet another addition to
   both the first and second modes and incorporates the ability to
   include the digest of the integrity claim as a required value in the
   certificate used to create the PASSporT digital signature.  This mode
   allows for cases where there is a different authoritative entity over

Internet-Draft                     RCD                     November 2019

   the content of the RCD, separate from the signer of the PASSporT
   itself allowing the ability to have policy around the content and
   potential review or pre-determination of allowed RCD content.

4.  Overview of Rich Call Data integrity

   When incorporating call data that represents a user, even in
   traditional calling name services today, often there is policy and
   restrictions around what data is allowed to be used.  Whether
   preventing offensive language or icons or enforcing uniqueness or
   whatever potential policy either via regulatory rules, a customer
   service agreements, or an enterprise brand consistency there may be
   the desire to pre-certify the specific use of rich data.  This
   document defines a mechanism that allows for an indirect party that
   controls the policy to approve or certify the content, create a
   cryptographic digest that can be used to validate that data and
   applies a constraint in the certificate to allow the recipient and
   verifier to validate that the specific content of the RCD is as
   intended at its creation and approval or certification.

   The integrity mechanism is a process of generating a sufficiently
   strong cryptographic digest for both the "rcd" claim contents (e.g.
   "nam" and "jcd") defined below and the resources defined by one or
   more globally unique HTTPS URLs referenced by the contents (e.g. an
   image file referenced by "jcd").  This mechanism is inspired and
   based on the W3C Subresource Integrity specification
   (  This mechanism additionally defines the
   ability to constrain the digest and RCD integrity mechanism to be
   mandatory without modification using JWT Constraints defined in

5.  PASSporT Claims

5.1.  PASSporT "rcd" Claim

   This specification defines a new JSON Web Token claim for "rcd", Rich
   Call Data, the value of which is a JSON object that can contain one
   or more key value pairs.  This document defines a default set of key

5.1.1.  "nam" key

   The "nam" key value is a display name, associated with the originator
   of personal communications, which may for example derive from the
   display-name component of the From header field value of a SIP
   request, or a similar field in other PASSporT using protocols.  This
   key MUST be included once and MUST be included as as part of the

Internet-Draft                     RCD                     November 2019

   "rcd" claim value JSON object.  If there is no string associated with
   a display name, the claim value SHOULD then be an empty string.

5.1.2.  "jcd" key

   The "jcd" key value is defined to contain a value of a jCard
   [RFC7095] JSON object.  This jCard object is intended to and may
   derive from the Call-Info header field value defined in [I.D.wendt-
   sipcore-callinfo-rcd] with a type of "jcard".  As also defined in
   [I.D.wendt-sipcore-callinfo-rcd], format of the jCard and properties
   used should follow the normative usage and formating rules and
   procedures.  It is an extensible object where the calling party can
   provide both the standard types of information defined in jCard or
   can use the built in extensibility of the jCard specification to add
   additional information.  The "jcd" is optional.  If included, this
   key MUST only be included once in the "rcd" JSON object and SHOULD
   NOT be included if there is a "jcl" key included.  The "jcd" and
   "jcl" keys should be mutually exclusive.

5.1.3.  "jcl" key

   The "jcl" key value is defined to contain a HTTPS URL that refers the
   recipient to a jCard [RFC7095] JSON object hosted on a HTTPS enabled
   web server.  This link is intended to and may derive from the Call-
   Info header field value defined in [I.D.wendt-sipcore-callinfo-rcd]
   with a type of "jcard".  As also defined in [I.D.wendt-sipcore-
   callinfo-rcd], format of the jCard and properties used should follow
   the normative usage and formating rules and procedures.  The "jcl"
   key is optional.  If included, this key MUST only be included once in
   the "rcd" JSON object and SHOULD NOT be included if there is a "jcd"
   key included.  The "jcd" and "jcl" keys should be mutually exclusive.

5.1.4.  "rcdi" RCD integrity Claim

   The "rcdi" claim is an optional claim that if the application
   requires integrity applied to the content of the "rcd" claim SHOULD
   be included with a corresponding "rcd" claim.  The value of the
   "rcdi" key pair should contain a string that is defined as follows.

   The first part of the string should define the crypto algorithm used
   to generate the digest.  For RCD, implementations MUST support the
   following hash algorithms, "SHA256", "SHA384", or "SHA512".  The SHA-
   256, SHA-384, and SHA-512 are part of the SHA-2 set of cryptographic
   hash functions defined by the NIST.  Implementations MAY support
   additional algorithms, but MUST NOT support known weak algorithms
   such as MD5 or SHA-1.  In the future, the list of algorithms may re-
   evaluated based on security best practices.  The algorithms MUST be
   represented in the text by "sha256", "sha384", or "sha512".  The

Internet-Draft                     RCD                     November 2019

   character following the algorithm string MUST be a minus character,
   "-".  The subsequent characters MUST be the base64 encoded digest of
   a canonicalized and concatenated string based on the "rcd" claim and
   the URLs contained in the claim.  The details of the creation of this
   string are defined in the next section.

"rcdi" : "sha256-H8BRh8j48O9oYatfu5AZzq6A9RINQZngK7T62em8MUt1FLm52t+eX6xO"

5.1.5.  Creation of the "rcd" digest

   In order to facilitate proper verification of the digest and whether
   the "rcd" content was modified, the input to the digest must be
   completely deterministic at three points in the process.  First, at
   the certification point where the content is evaluated to conform to
   the application policy and the JWT constraint is applied to the
   certificate containing the digest.  Second, when the call is signed
   at the Authentication Service, there may be a local policy to verify
   that the provided "rcd" claim corresponds to the digest.  Third, when
   the "rcd" data is verified at the Verification Service, it MUST
   verify the digest by constructing the "rcd" input digest string.

   The procedures for the creation of the "rcd" input digest string is
   as follows.

   1.  Arrange the keys in the "rcd" claim value to be in lexicographic

   2.  Serialize the resulting "rcd" claim value JSON object to remove
       all white space and line breaks.  The procedures of this
       deterministic JSON serialization is defined in [RFC8225],
       Section 9.

   3.  Identify, in order of where they appear in the serialized string,
       all of the URLs referencing external resource files.

   4.  Construct the "rcd" input string by first inserting the
       serialized "rcd" claim value.

   5.  If there is at least one URL identified, insert a semicolon
       character in the "rcd" input string.

   6.  Follow the semicolon with the Base64 encoded contents of resource
       file referenced by the first URL.

   7.  Repeat steps 5 and 6 for any additionally identified
       corresponding URLs.

Internet-Draft                     RCD                     November 2019

   Once the input digest string has been created, use this string to
   create the base64 encoded digest output that can be inserted into the
   "rcdi" claim as discussed in the last section.

   Example "rcd" claim with URL:
   "rcd": { "nam" : "James Bond",
            "jcl" : ""

   Example "rcd" input digest string (with line breaks for readability):
   {"nam":"James Bond","jcl":""};

   Example "rcdi" claim:

5.2.  JWT Constraint for "rcdi" claim

   Once both the contents of the "rcd" claim is certified and the
   construction of the "rcdi" claim is complete, the "rcdi" digest is
   linked to the STIR certificate associated with the signature in the
   PASSporT via JWT Constraints as defined in [RFC8226] Section 8.

   The certificate JWT Constraint MUST include both of the following:

   o  a "mustInclude" for the "rcd" claim

   o  a "mustInclude" for the "rcdi" claim and a "permittedValues" equal
      to the created "rcdi" claim value string.

6.  "rcd" Usage

   The "rcd" claim may appear in any PASSporT claims object as an
   optional element.  The creator of a PASSporT MAY however add a "ppt"
   value of "rcd" to the header of a PASSporT as well, in which case the
   PASSporT claims MUST contain a "rcd" claim, and any entities
   verifying the PASSporT object will be required to understand the
   "ppt" extension in order to process the PASSporT in question.  A
   PASSporT header with the "ppt" included will look as follows:

   { "typ":"passport",
     "x5u":"" }

   The PASSporT claims object will then contain the "rcd" key with its
   corresponding value.  The value of "rcd" is an array of JSON objects,

   of which one, the "nam" object, is mandatory.  The key syntax of
   "nam" follows the display-name ABNF given in [RFC3261].

   After the header and claims PASSporT objects have been constructed,
   their signature is generated normally per the guidance in [RFC8225].

6.1.  Example "rcd" PASSporTs

   An example of a "nam" only PASSporT claims obejct is shown next (with

   is optional, but will also include the mandatory "nam" object is

   In an example PASSporT where a jCard is linked via HTTPS URL and
   "jcl" a jCard file served at a particular URL will be created.

   An example jCard JSON file is shown as follows:

    ["version", {}, "text", "4.0"],
    ["fn", {}, "text", "James Bond"],
    ["n", {}, "text", ["Bond", "James", "", "", "Mr."]],
    ["adr", {"type":"work"}, "text",

    ["bday", {}, "date", "19241116"]
    ["logo", {}, "uri",

   If that jCard is hosted at the example address of

   mainly follows standard PASSporT compact form procedures.  For re-
   construction of the "nam" claim the string for the display-name in
   the From header MUST be used.  For re-construction of the "jcl", the
   Call-Info header with purpose "jcard" MUST be used.  "jcd" claim MAY
   NOT be used as part of compact form.

7.2.  Compact form of the "rcdi" PASSporT claim

   Compact form of an "rcdi" PASSPorT claim shall be re-constructed
   following the same "rcdi" defined digest procedures in this document
   of all of the content and referenced URI content once downloaded.

8.  Further Information Associated with Callers

   Beyond naming information and the information that can be contained
   in a jCard [RFC7095] object, there may be additional human-readable
   information about the calling party that should be rendered to the
   end user in order to help the called party decide whether or not to
   pick up the phone.  This is not limited to information about the
   caller, but includes information about the call itself, which may
   derive from analytics that determine based on call patterns or
   similar data if the call is likely to be one the called party wants
   to receive.  Such data could include:

   o  information related to the location of the caller, or

   o  any organizations or institutions that the caller is associated
      with, or even categories of institutions (is this a government
      agency, or a bank, or what have you), or

   o  hyperlinks to images, such as logos or pictures of faces, or to
      similar external profile information, or

   o  information that will be processed by an application before
      rendering it to a user, like social networking data that shows
      that an unknown caller is a friend-of-a-friend, or reputation
      scores derived from crowdsourcing, or confidence scores based on
      broader analytics about the caller and callee.

   All of these data elements would benefit from the secure attestations
   provided by the STIR and PASSporT frameworks.  A new IANA registry
   has been defined to hold potential values of the "rcd" array; see

Peterson & Wendt           Expires May 7, 2020                 [Page 11]

Internet-Draft                     RCD                     November 2019

   Section 14.3.  Specific extensions to the "rcd" PASSporT claim are
   left for future specification.

   While in the traditional telephone network, the business relationship
   between calling customers and their telephone service providers is
   the ultimate root of information about a calling party's name, some
   other forms of data like crowdsourced reputation scores might derive
   from third parties.  It is more likely that when those elements are
   present, they will be in a third-party "rcd" PASSporT.

9.  Third-Party Uses

   While rich data about the call can be provided by an originating
   authentication service, the terminating side or an intermediary in
   the call path could also acquire rich call data by querying a third-
   party service.  Such a service effectively acts as a STIR
   Authentication Service, generating its own PASSporT, and that
   PASSporT could be attached to a SIP call by either the originating or
   terminating side.  This third-party PASSporT attests information
   about the calling number, rather than the call or caller itself, and
   as such its RCD MUST NOT be used when a call lacks a first-party
   PASSporT that assures verification services that the calling party
   number is not spoofed.  It is intended to be used in cases when the
   originating side does not supply a display-name for the caller, so
   instead some entity in the call path invokes a third-party service to
   provide rich caller data for a call.

   In telephone operations today, a third-party information service is
   commonly queried with the calling party's number in order to learn
   the name of the calling party, and potentially other helpful
   information could also be passed over that interface.  The value of
   using a PASSporT to convey this information from third parties lies
   largely in the preservation of the original authority's signature
   over the data, and the potential for the PASSporT to be conveyed from
   intermediaries to endpoint devices.  Effectively, these use cases
   form a sub-case of out-of-band [I-D.ietf-stir-oob] use cases.  The
   manner in which third-party services are discovered is outside the
   scope of this document.

   An intermediary use case might look as follows: a SIP INVITE carries
   a display name in its From header field value and an initial PASSporT
   object without the "rcd" claim.  When the a terminating verification
   service implemented at a SIP proxy server receives this request, and
   determines that the signature is valid, it might query a third-party
   service that maps telephone numbers to calling party names.  Upon
   receiving the PASSport in a response from that third-party service,
   the terminating side could add a new Identity header field to the
   request for the "rcd" PASSporT object provided by the third-party

Peterson & Wendt           Expires May 7, 2020                 [Page 12]

Internet-Draft                     RCD                     November 2019

   service.  It would then forward the INVITE to the terminating user
   agent.  If the display name in the "rcd" PASSporT object matches the
   display name in the INVITE, then the name would presumably be
   rendered to the end user by the terminating user agent.

   A very similar flow could be followed by an intermediary closer to
   the origination of the call.  Presumably such a service could be
   implemented at an originating network in order to decouple the
   systems that sign for calling party numbers from the systems that
   provide rich data about calls.

   In an alternative use case, the terminating user agent might query a
   third-party service.  In this case, no new Identity header field
   would be generated, though the terminating user agent might receive a
   PASSporT object in return from the third-party service, and use the
   "rcd" field in the object as a calling name to render to users while

9.1.  Signing as a Third Party

   When a third party issues a PASSporT with an "rcd" claim, the
   PASSporT MUST contain the "rcd" "ppt" type in its header object.  It
   moreover MUST include an "iss" claim as defined in [RFC7519] to
   indicate the source of this PASSporT; that field SHOULD be populated
   with the subject of the credential used to sign the PASSporT.

   A PASSporT with a "ppt" of "rcd" MAY be signed with credentials that
   do not have authority over the identity that appears in the "orig"
   element of the PASSporT claims.  Relying parties in STIR have always
   been left to make their own authorization decisions about whether or
   not the trust the signers of PASSporTs, and in the third-party case,
   where an entity has explicitly queried a service to acquire the
   PASSporT object, it may be some external trust or business
   relationship that induces the relying party to trust a PASSporT.

   An example of a Third Party issued PASSporT claims object is as

   {  "orig":{"tn":"12025551000"},
      "iss":"Example, Inc.",
      "rcd":{"nam":"James Bond"} }

10.  Levels of Assurance

   As "rcd" can be provided by either first or third parties, relying
   parties could benefit from an additional claim that indicates the
   relationship of the attesting party to the caller.  Even in first
   party cases, this admits of some complexity: the Communications
   Service Provider (CSP) to which a number was assigned might in turn
   delegate the number to a reseller, who would then sell the number to
   an enterprise, in which case the CSP might have little insight into
   the caller's name.  In third party cases, a caller's name could
   derive from any number of data sources, on a spectrum between public
   data scraped from web searches to a direct business relationship to
   the caller.  As multiple PASSporTs can be associated with the same
   call, potentially a verification service could receive attestations
   of the caller name from multiple sources, which have different levels
   of granularity or accuracy.

   Therefore PASSporTs that carry "rcd" data SHOULD also carry an
   indication of the relationship of the generator of the PASSporT to
   the caller.  [TBD claim - take from SHAKEN?]

11.  Using "rcd" in SIP

   This section specifies SIP-specific usage for the "rcd" claim in
   PASSporT, and in the SIP Identity header field value.  Other using
   protocols of PASSporT may define their own usages for the "rcd"

11.1.  Authentication Service Behavior

   An authentication service creating a PASSporT containing a "rcd"
   claim MAY include a "ppt" for "rcd" or not.  Third-party
   authentication services following the behavior in Section 9.1 MUST
   include a "ppt" of "rcd".  If "ppt" does contain a "rcd", then any
   SIP authentication services MUST add a "ppt" parameter to the
   Identity header containing that PASSporT with a value of "rcd".  The
   resulting Identity header might look as follows:

Identity: "sv5CTo05KqpSmtHt3dcEiO/1CWTSZtnG3iV+1nmurLXV/HmtyNS7Ltrg9dlxkWzo
    pPqOg1uXndzHbG7mR6Rl9BnUhHufVRbp51Mn3w0gfUs="; \

   This specification assumes that by default, a SIP authentication
   service will derive the value of "rcd", specifically only for the
   "nam" key value, from the display-name component of the From header
   field value of the request, alternatively for some calls this may
   come from the P-Asserted-ID header.  It is however a matter of

Peterson & Wendt           Expires May 7, 2020                 [Page 14]

Internet-Draft                     RCD                     November 2019

   authentication service policy to decide how it populates the value of
   "rcd" and "nam" key, which MAY also derive from other fields in the
   request, from customer profile data, or from access to external
   services.  If the authentication service generates a PASSporT object
   containing "rcd" with a value that is not equivalent to the From
   header field display-name value, it MUST use the full form of the
   PASSporT object in SIP.

11.2.  Verification Service Behavior

   [RFC8224] Section 6.2 Step 5 requires that specifications defining
   "ppt" values describe any additional verifier behavior.  The behavior
   specified for the "ppt" values of "rcd" is as follows.  If the
   PASSporT is in compact form, then the verification service SHOULD
   extract the display-name from the From header field value, if any,
   and use that as the value for the "rcd" key when it recomputes the
   header and claims of the PASSporT object.  If the signature validates
   over the recomputed object, then the verification should be
   considered successful.

   However, if the PASSport is in full form with a "ppt" value of "rcd",
   then the verification service MUST extract the value associated with
   the "rcd" "nam" key in the object.  If the signature validates, then
   the verification service can use the value of the "rcd" "nam" key as
   the display name of calling party, which would in turn be rendered to
   alerted users or otherwise leveraged in accordance with local policy.
   This will allow SIP networks that convey the display name through a
   field other than the From header field to interoperate with this

   The third-party "rcd" PASSporT cases presents some new challenges, as
   an attacker could attempt to cut-and-paste such a third-party
   PASSporT into a SIP request in an effort to get the terminating user
   agent to render the display name or confidence values it contains to
   a call that should have no such assurance.  A third-party "rcd"
   PASSporT provides no assurance that the calling party number has not
   been spoofed: if it is carried in a SIP request, for example, then
   some other PASSporT in another Identity header field value would have
   to carry a PASSporT attesting that.  A verification service MUST
   determine that the calling party number shown in the "orig" of the
   "rcd" PASSporT corresponds to the calling party number of the call it
   has received, and that the "iat" field of the "rcd" PASSporT is
   within the date interval that the verification service would
   ordinarily accept for a PASSporT.

   Verification services may alter their authorization policies for the
   credentials accepted to sign PASSporTs when third parties generate
   PASSporT objects, per Section 9.1.  This may include accepting a

Peterson & Wendt           Expires May 7, 2020                 [Page 15]

Internet-Draft                     RCD                     November 2019

   valid signature over a PASSporT even if it is signed with a
   credential that does not attest authority over the identity in the
   "orig" claim of the PASSporT, provided that the verification service
   has some other reason to trust the signer.  No further guidance on
   verification service authorization policy is given here.

   The behavior of a SIP UAS upon receiving an INVITE containing a
   PASSporT object with a "rcd" claim will largely remain a matter of
   implementation policy.  In most cases, implementations would render
   this calling party name information to the user while alerting.  Any
   user interface additions to express confidence in the veracity of
   this information are outside the scope of this specification.

12.  Using "rcd" as additional claims to other PASSporT extensions

   Rich Call Data, including, for example, calling name information, is
   often data that is additive data to the personal communications
   information defined in the core PASSporT data required to support the
   security properties defined in [RFC8225].  For cases where the entity
   that is originating the personal communications and additionally is
   supporting the authentication service and also is the authority of
   the Rich Call Data, rather than creating multiple identity headers
   with multiple PASSporT extensions or defining multiple combinations
   and permutations of PASSporT extension definitions, the
   authentication service can alternatively directly add the "rcd"
   claims to the PASSporT it is creating, whether it is constructed with
   a PASSporT extension or not.

12.1.  Procedures for applying "rcd" as claims only

   For a given PASSporT using some other extension than "rcd", the
   Authentication Service MAY additionally include the "rcd" claim as
   defined in this document.  This would result in a set of claims that
   correspond to the original intended extension with the addition of
   the "rcd" claim.

   The Verification service that receives the PASSporT, if it supports
   this specification and chooses to, should interpret the "rcd" claim
   as simply just an additional claim intended to deliver and/or
   validate delivered Rich Call Data.

12.2.  Example for applying "rcd" as claims only

   In the case of [RFC8588] which is the PASSporT extension supporting
   the SHAKEN specification [ATIS-1000074], a common case for an
   Authentication service to co-exist in a CSP network along with the
   authority over the calling name used for the call.  Rather than
   require two identity headers, the CSP Authentication Service can

Internet-Draft                     RCD                     November 2019

   apply both the SHAKEN PASSporT claims and extension and simply add
   the "rcd" required claims defined in this document.

   For example, the PASSporT claims for the "shaken" PASSporT with "rcd"
   claims would be as follows:

   Protected Header
      "rcd":{"nam":"James Bond"}

   A Verification Service that supports "rcd" and "shaken" PASSporT
   extensions will be able to receive the above PASSporT and interpret
   both the "shaken" claims as well as the "rcd" defined claim.

   If the Verification Service only understands the "shaken" extension
   claims but doesn't support "rcd", the "rcd" can simply be ignored and

14.2.  PASSporT Types

   This specification requests that the IANA add a new entry to the
   PASSporT Types registry for the type "rcd" which is specified in

14.3.  PASSporT RCD Types

   This document requests that the IANA create a new registry for
   PASSporT RCD types.  Registration of new PASSporT RCD types shall be
   under the Specification Required policy.

   This registry is to be initially populated with three values, "nam",
   "jcd", and "jcl", which are specified in [RFCThis].

15.  Security Considerations

   Revealing information such as the name, location, and affiliation of
   a person necessarily entails certain privacy risks.  Baseline
   PASSporT has no particular confidentiality requirement, as the
   information it signs over in a using protocol like SIP is all
   information that SIP carries in the clear anyway.  Transport-level
   security can hide those SIP fields from eavesdroppers, and the same
   confidentiality mechanisms would protect any PASSporT(s) carried in

   More TBD.
