LOcation And Discovery (RELOAD)
Author: C. Jennings,

This document defines a SIP Usage for REsource LOcation And Discovery
(RELOAD). The SIP Usage provides the functionality of a SIP proxy or
registrar in a fully distributed system and includes a lookup service
for Address of Records (AORs) stored in the overlay. It also defines
Globally Routable User Agent URIs (GRUUs) that allow the
registrations to map an AOR to a specific node reachable through the
overlay. After such initial contact of a Peer, the RELOAD AppAttach
method is used to establish a direct connection between nodes through
which SIP messages are exchanged.
This document is a product of the Peer-to-Peer Session Initiation Protocol
Working Group of the IETF.
This is now a Proposed Standard.
