Mission, well, not really accomplished

Over the past few years I and a few collaborators have been working to develop a better system for key establishment for standards-based real time voice (i.e., SIP/RTP). Skype already has such a system, but unfortunately it's a closed system and the available systems for SIP and RTP had some serious problems. While this job is far from finished, today the IESG approved the first round of documents describing the two major pieces of this protocol: draft-ietf-avt-dtls-srtp and draft-ietf-sp-dtls-srtp-framework. There are a few smaller documents still and the minor task of getting widespread implementations remains, but this is definitely progress. Thanks are due to everyone who contributed to this effort.
