In some conferencing scenarios, it is desirable for an intermediary
to be able to manipulate some parameters in Real-time Transport
Protocol (RTP) packets, while still providing strong end-to-end
security guarantees. This document defines a cryptographic transform
for the Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) that uses two
separate but related cryptographic operations to provide hop-by-hop
and end-to-end security guarantees.  Both the end-to-end and
hop-by-hop cryptographic algorithms can utilize an authenticated
encryption with associated data (AEAD) algorithm or take advantage of
future SRTP transforms with different properties.

This document is a product of the Privacy Enhanced RTP Conferencing 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.
