Current Traversal Using Relays around NAT (TURN) server discovery
mechanisms are relatively static and limited to explicit
configuration.  These are usually under the administrative control of
the application or TURN service provider, and not the enterprise,
ISP, or the network in which the client is located.  Enterprises and
ISPs wishing to provide their own TURN servers need auto-discovery
mechanisms that a TURN client could use with minimal or no
configuration.  This document describes three such mechanisms for
TURN server discovery.

This document updates RFC 5766 to relax the requirement for mutual
authentication in certain cases.

This document is a product of the TURN Revised and Modernized Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
