Title: Updates to Private Header (P-Header)
Extension Usage in Session Initiation Protocol
(SIP) Requests and Responses
Author: C. Holmberg, N. Biondic, G. Salgueiro
Date: September 2016
Updates: RFC 7315
I-D Tag: draft-holmberg-dispatch-rfc7315-updates-09.txt
The Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) has identified cases
where different SIP private header extensions referred to as "P-"
header fields, and defined in RFC 7315, need to be included in SIP
requests and responses currently not allowed according to RFC 7315.
This document updates RFC 7315, in order to allow inclusion of the
affected "P-" header fields in such requests and responses.
This document also makes updates for RFC 7315 in order to fix
misalignments that occurred when RFC 3455 was updated and obsoleted
by RFC 7315.
