SPPF, defined in [RFC7877], is best supported by a transport and messaging infrastructure that is connection oriented, is request- response oriented, is easily secured, supports propagation through firewalls in a standard fashion, and is easily integrated into back- office systems. This is due to the fact that the client side of SPPF is likely to be integrated with organizations' operational support systems that facilitate transactional provisioning of user addresses and their associated SED. The server side of SPPF is likely to reside in a separate organization's network, resulting in the SPPF provisioning transactions traversing the Internet as they are propagated from the SPPF client to the SPPF server. Given the current state of industry practice and technologies, SOAP and HTTP(S) are well suited for this type of environment. This document describes the specification for transporting SPPF XML structures, using SOAP and HTTP(S) as substrates.

Session Peering Provisioning (SPP) Protocol over SOAP
The Session Peering Provisioning Framework (SPPF) specifies the data model and the overall structure to provision Session Establishment Data (SED) into Session Data Registries and SIP Service Provider data stores. To utilize this framework, one needs a substrate protocol. Given that the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) is currently widely used for messaging between elements of such provisioning systems, this document specifies the usage of SOAP (via HTTPS) as the substrate protocol for SPPF. The benefits include leveraging prevalent expertise and a higher probability that existing provisioning systems will be able to easily migrate to using an SPPF- based protocol.
