Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <email@example.com>, RFC Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org>, mmusic mailing list <email@example.com>, mmusic chair <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Connection-Oriented Media Transport over the Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol in the Session Description Protocol (SDP)' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Connection-Oriented Media Transport over the Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol in the Session Description Protocol (SDP) ' <draft-ietf-mmusic-comedia-tls-07.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document is the product of the Multiparty Multimedia Session Control Working Group.

Technical Summary RFC 4145 describes how to use the Session Description Protocol (SDP) to negotiate media transport over TCP. This draft extends and updates that specification, allowing TLS connections to be negotiated. It defines a new SDP protocol identifier, 'TCP/TLS'. It also defines the syntax and semantics for an SDP 'fingerprint' attribute that identifies the certificate which will be presented for the TLS session. This mechanism allows media transport over TLS connections to be established securely, so long as the integrity of session descriptions is assured. Working Group Summary This document was non-controversial and well-received by the working group. It extends a published specification. It is the security technology for the now-approved basic floor control protocol developed by the XCON working group. Protocol Quality This document updates RFC 4145. It has been reviewed by the MMUSIC working group, and implemented by the author. Colin Perkins is the WG Chair shepherd. Allison Mankin has served as the Responsible Area Director. Notes to the RFC Editor Abstract Please add the following sentence to the end of the first paragraph: This document extends and updates RFC 4145. Please delete the following, which was a temporary pointer: This revision of the document reflects comments made during IESG review.
