This document describes private extensions to the Session Initiation
Protocol (SIP) that enable a network of trusted SIP servers to assert
the service of authenticated users.  The use of these extensions is
only applicable inside an administrative domain with previously
agreed-upon policies for generation, transport, and usage of such
information.  This document does NOT offer a general service
identification model suitable for use between different trust domains
or for use in the Internet at large.

The document also defines a URN to identify both services and User
Agent (UA) applications.  This URN can be used within the SIP header
fields defined in this document to identify services, and also within
the framework defined for caller preferences and callee capabilities
to identify usage of both services and applications between end UAs. 
This document is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is
published for informational purposes.
