      A Session Identifier for the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)

Abstract

   There is a need for having a globally unique session identifier for    the same SIP session that can be consistently maintained across SIP    Proxies, Back-to-Back User Agents (B2BUAs), and other SIP    middleboxes, for the purpose of troubleshooting.  This document    proposes a new SIP header to carry such a value: Session-ID.

   The mechanism defined in this document has been widely deployed, and    is being followed in a backward-compatible fashion for a new    Standards Track document produced by the INSIPID Working Group.
