The Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) is used in a large number of
different application domains and environments.  This heterogeneity
implies that different security mechanisms are needed to provide
services such as confidentiality, integrity, and source
authentication of RTP and RTP Control Protocol (RTCP) packets
suitable for the various environments.  The range of solutions makes
it difficult for RTP-based application developers to pick the most
suitable mechanism.  This document provides an overview of a number
of security solutions for RTP and gives guidance for developers on
how to choose the appropriate security mechanism.

This document is a product of the Audio/Video Transport Core Maintenance Working Group of the IETF.
