Many of us have been talking about "Best Effort SRTP" for many years, and
there are a number of deployments.  In addition, the IMTC has recommended
it, and the SIP Forum would like to recommend it in SIPconnect 2.0 which
for the first time includes SRTP media.  With the publication of RFC 7435 (
https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7435) the IETF has endorsed this approach
as Opportunistic Security (OS), so it would be nice to bring standards in
line with industry practice.

Comments on the draft, "An Opportunistic Approach for Secure Real-time
Transport Protocol (OSRTP)" and the best way forward are most welcome!

   Opportunistic Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (OSRTP) allows
   encrypted media to be used in environments where support for
   encryption is not known in advance, and not required.  OSRTP is an
   implementation of Opportunistic Security, as defined in RFC 7435.
   OSRTP does not require advanced SDP extensions or features and is
   fully backwards compatible with existing secure and insecure
   implementations.  OSRTP is not specific to any key management
   technique for SRTP.
