I don't think that the fact that SIP does not require media security has anything to do with telcos. It was a decision made by IETF to not specify any media plane requirements.

(It was also used as an argument in the good old SIP-vs-H.323 battle.)

El 04/11/2011 15:20, "Xavier Marjou" <, which I fully support by the way.

Xavier, such draft does not propose that Webrtc must implement all the requirements in the draft. It just lists all the requirements needed in order to fully interoperate with current SIP deployments and opens the door for discussion about it.

So if you "fully support" this draft it means that you are just interested in making Webrtc to work with current SIP, regardless security requirements in the Web.

So let me know: do you support that browsers must implement g729? Do you support that webrtc requires not security at all in the media plane (like legacy SIP)?

If so, I dont think you care about Webrtc for the Web, but just for telcos. Behaviors like this one makes this WG to seem a telco party rather than a WG working for the Web. WebRTC means RTC for the Web, rather than Web for telcos, or that is what I hope.
