Technical Summary

This draft provides information and requirements for how IP addresses should be handled by WebRTC implementations.  This is a companion draft to the two security-related drafts, but it was kept separate to this draft to change more quickly. The security drafts are standards track and so is this one.

Working Group Summary

This document has been extensively reviewed both on the list at a numerous in-person WG meetings.  This document is controversial because it deals with privacy and user consent issues related to Browsers.  There are strong feelings about the draft’s contents and what we have arrived at is rough consensus.

Document Quality

WebRTC, including its underlying security and privacy model, has been implemented by all major web browsers.
