This document describes an end-to-end session identifier for use in
IP-based multimedia communication systems that enables endpoints,
intermediary devices, and management systems to identify a session
end-to-end, associate multiple endpoints with a given multipoint
conference, track communication sessions when they are redirected,
and associate one or more media flows with a given communication
session.  While the identifier is intended to work across multiple
protocols, this document describes its usage in the Session
Initiation Protocol (SIP).

This document also describes a backwards-compatibility mechanism for
an existing session identifier implementation (RFC 7329) that is
sufficiently different from the procedures defined in this document.

This document obsoletes RFC 7329.

This document is a product of the INtermediary-safe SIP session ID 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.
