Summary: This draft is ready for publication as an Informational RFC but
I do have a few comments that the authors may wish to consider.
* Section 1
This sentence is a bit awkward
The IETF considers it important that protocols implement, and makes
available to the user, secure modes of operation
Suggest rewording to something like
The IETF considers it important that protocols implement secure modes of
operation and make them available to users.
* Section 2.1
I am not sure what this statement means. Can you please clarify?
"Here the combination of the security protocol protecting the RTP
session and its RTP and RTCP traffic and the key-management protocol
becomes important in which security statements one can do."
* Section 4.1.4
s/will be more relevant then/will be more relevant than/
This sentence is hard to read. Please consider rewording
"Commonly by provisioning the verifier with the public part of a root
certificate, this enables the verifier to verify a trust chain from the
root certificate down to the identity certificate."
