         Session Peering Provisioning (SPP) Protocol over SOAP

Abstract

   The Session Peering Provisioning Framework (SPPF) specifies the data
   model and the overall structure to provision Session Establishment
   Data (SED) into Session Data Registries and SIP Service Provider data
   stores.  To utilize this framework, one needs a substrate protocol.
   Given that the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) is currently
   widely used for messaging between elements of such provisioning
   systems, this document specifies the usage of SOAP (via HTTPS) as the
   substrate protocol for SPPF.  The benefits include leveraging
   prevalent expertise and a higher probability that existing
   provisioning systems will be able to easily migrate to using an SPPF-
   based protocol.
