This document lays out a set of requirements related to trait-based
authorization for the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).  While some
authentication mechanisms are described in the base SIP
specification, trait-based authorization provides information used to
make policy decisions based on the attributes of a participant in a
session.  This approach provides a richer framework for
authorization, as well as allows greater privacy for users of an
identity system.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the Session Initiation Proposal 
Investigation Working Group of the IETF.
