This document specifies how to establish secure connection-oriented
media transport sessions over the Transport Layer Security (TLS)
protocol using the Session Description Protocol (SDP).  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 that 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.

This document extends and updates RFC 4145.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
