Title : SIP Authenticated Identity Body (AIB) Format
Author(s) : J. Peterson
Filename : draft-ietf-sip-authid-body-02.txt
Pages : 12
Date : 2003-7-2
RFC3261 introduces the concept of adding an S/MIME body to a SIP
request or response in order to provide reference integrity over its
headers. This document provides a more specific mechanism to derive
integrity and authentication properties from an 'authenticated
identity body', a digitally-signed SIP message or message fragment.
A standard format for such bodies (known as Authenticated Identity
Bodies, or AIBs) is given in this document. Some considerations for
the processing of AIBs by recipients of SIP messages with such bodies
are also given.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
