SIP networks use signaling monitoring tools to diagnose user-reported
problems and to perform regression testing if network or user agent
(UA) software is upgraded.  As networks grow and become
interconnected, including connection via transit networks, it becomes
impractical to predict the path that SIP signaling will take between
user agents and therefore impractical to monitor SIP signaling end to

This document describes an indicator for the SIP protocol that can be
used to mark signaling as being of interest to logging.  Such marking
will typically be applied as part of network testing controlled by
the network operator and is not used in normal user agent signaling.
Operators of all networks on the signaling path can agree to carry
such marking end to end, including the originating and terminating
SIP user agents, even if a session originates and terminates in
different networks.

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.
