                 The SEED Cipher Algorithm and Its Use
          with the Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol (SRTP)

Abstract

   This document describes the use of the SEED block cipher algorithm in
   the Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) for providing
   confidentiality for Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) traffic and
   for the control traffic for RTP, the Real-time Transport Control
   Protocol (RTCP).
