                      draft-ietf-clue-signaling-03

Abstract

   This document specifies how CLUE-specific signaling such as the CLUE
   protocol [I-D.presta-clue-protocol] and the CLUE data channel
   [I-D.ietf-clue-datachannel] are used with each other and with
   existing signaling mechanisms such as SIP and SDP to produce a
   telepresence call.

1.  Introduction

   To enable devices to participate in a telepresence call, selecting
   the sources they wish to view, receiving those media sources and
   displaying them in an optimal fashion, CLUE involves two principal
   and inter-related protocol negotiations.  SDP, conveyed via SIP, is
   used to negotiate the specific media capabilities that can be
   delivered to specific addresses on a device.  Meanwhile, a CLUE
   protocol [I-D.presta-clue-protocol], transported via a CLUE data
   channel [I-D.ietf-clue-datachannel], is used to negotiate the capture
   sources available, their attributes and any constraints in their use,
   along which which captures the far end provides a device wishes to
   receive.

   Beyond negotiating the CLUE channel, SDP is also used to negotiate
   the details of supported media streams and the maximum capability of
   each of those streams.  As the CLUE Framework
   [I-D.ietf-clue-framework] defines a manner in which the media
   provider expresses their maximum encoding capabilities, SDP is also
   used to express the encoding limits for each potential encoding.

   Backwards-compatibility is an important consideration of the
   document: it is vital that a CLUE-capable device contacting a device
   that does not support CLUE is able to fall back to a fully functional
   non-CLUE call.  The document also defines how a non-CLUE call may be
   upgraded to CLUE in mid-call, and similarly how CLUE functionality
   can be removed mid-call to return to a standard non-CLUE call.

2.  Terminology

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

   This document draws liberally from the terminology defined in the
   CLUE Framework [I-D.ietf-clue-framework].

   Other terms introduced here:




Kyzivat, et al.         Expires February 27, 2015               [Page 3]


Internet-Draft               CLUE Signaling                  August 2014


   CLUE data channel:  A reliable, bidirectional, transport mechanism
      used to convey CLUE messages.  See [I-D.ietf-clue-datachannel] for
      more details.

   CLUE-capable device:  A device that supports the CLUE data channel
      [I-D.ietf-clue-datachannel], the CLUE protocol
      [I-D.presta-clue-protocol] and the principles of CLUE negotiation,
      and wishes to upgrade the call to CLUE-enabled status.

   CLUE-enabled call:  A call in which two CLUE-capable devices have
      successfully negotiated support for a CLUE data channel in SDP.  A
      CLUE-enabled call is not necessarily immediately able to send
      CLUE-controlled media; negotiation of the data channel and of the
      CLUE protocol must complete first.  Calls between two CLUE-capable
      devices which have not yet successfully completed negotiation of
      support for the CLUE data channel in SDP are not considered CLUE-
      enabled.

   Non-CLUE device:  A device that supports standard SIP and SDP, but
      either does not support CLUE, or that does but does not currently
      wish to invoke CLUE capabilities.

   CLUE-controlled media:  A media "m" line that is under CLUE control;
      the capture source that provides the media on this "m" line is
      negotiated in CLUE.  See Section 4 for details of how this control
      is signalled in SDP.  There is a corresponding "non-CLUE-
      controlled" media term.

3.  Media Feature Tag Definition

   The "sip.clue" media feature tag indicates support for CLUE.  A CLUE-
   capable device SHOULD include this media feature tag in its REGISTER
   requests and OPTION responses.  It SHOULD also include the media
   feature tag in INVITE and UPDATE [RFC3311] requests and responses.

   Presence of the media feature tag in the contact field of a request
   or response can be used to determine that the far end supports CLUE.

4.  SDP Grouping Framework CLUE Extension Semantics

4.1.  General

   This section defines a new SDP Grouping Framework extension, CLUE.

   The CLUE extension can be indicated using an SDP session-level
   'group' attribute.  Each SDP media "m" line that is included in this
   group, using SDP media-level mid attributes, is CLUE-controlled, by a
   CLUE data channel also included in this CLUE group.



Kyzivat, et al.         Expires February 27, 2015               [Page 4]


Internet-Draft               CLUE Signaling                  August 2014


   Currently only support for a single CLUE group is specified.  A
   device MUST NOT include more than one CLUE group in its SDP unless it
   is following a specification that defines how multiple CLUE channels
   are defined, and is either able to determine that the other side of
   the SDP exchange supports multiple CLUE channels, or is able to fail
   gracefully in the event it does not.

4.2.  The CLUE data channel and the CLUE grouping semantic

   The CLUE data channel [I-D.ietf-clue-datachannel] is a bidirectional
   SCTP over DTLS channel used for the transport of CLUE messages.  This
   channel must be established before CLUE protocol messages can be
   exchanged and CLUE-controlled media can be sent.

   The data channel is a generic transport that is not specific to CLUE
   - if a device wishes to use the CLUE protocol on the data channel it
   MUST include a CLUE group in the SDP and include the "mid" of the "m"
   line for the data channel in that group.  A CLUE group MUST include
   the "mid" of the "m" line for one (and only one) data channel, and
   the "mid" of the "m" line of a data channel "mid" MUST NOT be
   included in more than one CLUE group.

   Presence of the data channel in a CLUE group in an SDP offer or
   answer also serves, along with the "sip.clue" media feature tag, as
   an indication that the device supports CLUE and wishes to upgrade the
   call to include CLUE-controlled media.  A CLUE-capable device SHOULD
   include a data channel "m" line in offers and, when allowed by
   [RFC3264], answers.

4.3.  CLUE-controlled media and the CLUE grouping semantic

   CLUE-controlled media lines in an SDP are "m" lines in which the
   content of the media streams to be sent is negotiated via the CLUE
   protocol [I-D.presta-clue-protocol].  For an "m" line to be CLUE-
   controlled, its "mid" value MUST be included in a CLUE group.  CLUE-
   controlled media line "mid"s MUST NOT be included in more than one
   CLUE group.

   CLUE-controlled media is controlled by the CLUE protocol as
   negotiated on the CLUE data channel with an "mid" included in the
   CLUE group.  If negotiation of the data channel in SDP failed due to
   lack of CLUE support by the remote device or for any other reason the
   other "m" lines in the group are still considered CLUE-controlled and
   under all the restrictions of CLUE-controlled media specified in this
   document.

Internet-Draft               CLUE Signaling                  August 2014


   "m" lines not specified as under CLUE control follow normal rules for
   media streams negotiated in SDP as defined in documents such as
   [RFC3264].

4.4.  SDP semantics for CLUE-controlled media

4.4.1.  Signalling CLUE Encodings

   The CLUE Framework [I-D.ietf-clue-framework] defines the concept of
   "encodings", which represent the sender's encode ability.  Each
   encoding the media provider wishes to signal is signalled via an "m"
   line of the appropriate media type, which MUST be marked as sendonly
   with the "a=sendonly" attribute or as inactive with the "a=inactive"
   attribute.

   The encoder limits of active (eg, "a=sendonly") encodings can then be
   expressed using existing SDP syntax.  For instance, for H.264 see
   Table 6 in [RFC6184] for a list of valid parameters for representing
   encoder sender stream limits.

   These encodings are CLUE-controlled and hence MUST include an "mid"
   in a CLUE group as defined above.

   As well as the normal restrictions defined in [RFC3264] the stream
   MUST be treated as if the "m" line direction attribute had been set
   to "a=inactive" until the media provider has received a valid CLUE
   CONFIGURE message specifying the capture to be used for this stream.
   This means that media packets MUST NOT be sent until configuration is
   complete, while non-media packets such as STUN and DTLS MUST be sent
   as normal if negotiated.

   Every "m" line representing a CLUE encoding MUST contain a "label"
   attribute as defined in [RFC4574].  This label is used to identify
   the encoding by the sender in CLUE ADVERTISEMENT messages and by the
   receiver in CLUE CONFIGURE messages.  Each label used for a CLUE-
   controlled "m" line MUST be different from the label on all other "m"
   lines in the same CLUE group in the SDP message.

4.4.1.1.  Referencing encodings in the CLUE protocol

   CLUE encodings are defined in SDP, but can be referenced from CLUE
   protocol messages - this is how the protocol defines which encodings
   are part of an encoding group (in ADVERTISEMENT messages) and which
   encoding with which to encode a specific capture (in CONFIGURE
   messages).  The labels on the CLUE-controlled "m" lines are the
   references that are used in the CLUE protocol.





Kyzivat, et al.         Expires February 27, 2015               [Page 6]


Internet-Draft               CLUE Signaling                  August 2014


   Each <encID> element in a CLUE ADVERTISEMENT message SHOULD
   represents an encoding defined in SDP; the specific encoding
   referenced is a CLUE-controlled "m" line in the most recent SDP sent
   by the sender of the ADVERTISMENT message with a label value
   corresponding to the text content of the <encID>.

   Similarly, each <encID> element in a CLUE CONFIGURE message SHOULD
   represents an encoding defined in SDP; the specific encoding
   referenced is a CLUE-controlled "m" line in the most recent SDP
   received by the sender of the CONFIGURE message with a label value
   corresponding to the text content of the <encID>.

   Note that the non-atomic nature of SDP/CLUE protocol interaction may
   mean that there are temporary periods where an <encID> in a CLUE
   message does not reference an SDP "m" line, or where an encoding
   represented in SDP is not referenced in a CLUE protocol message.  See
   Section 5 for specifics.

4.4.1.2.  Media line directionality

   Presently, this specification mandates that CLUE-controlled "m"-lines
   must be unidirectional.  This is because setting "m"-lines to
   "a=sendonly" allows the encoder limits to be expressed, whereas in
   other cases codec attributes express the receive capabilities of a
   media line.

   It is possible that in future versions of this draft or its successor
   this restriction will be relaxed.  If a device does not feel there is
   a benefit to expressing encode limitations, or if there are no
   meaningful codec-specific limitations to express (such as with many
   audio codecs) there are benefits to allowing bidirectional "m"-lines.
   With bidirectional media lines recipients do not always need to
   create a new offer to add their own "m"-lines to express their send
   capabilities; if they can produce an equal or lesser number of
   streams to send then they may not need additional "m"-lines.

   However, at present the need to express encode limitations and the
   wish to simplify the offer/answer procedure means that for the time
   being only unidirectional media lines are allowed for CLUE-controlled
   media.  The highly asymmetric nature of CLUE means that the
   probability of the recipient of the initial offer needing to make
   their own offer to add additional "m"-lines is significantly higher
   than it is for most other SIP call scenarios, in which there is a
   tendancy for both sides to have similar numbers of potential audio
   and video streams they can send.

Internet-Draft               CLUE Signaling                  August 2014


4.4.2.  Negotiating receipt of CLUE capture encodings in SDP

   A receiver who wishes to receive a CLUE stream via a specific
   encoding requires an "a=recvonly" "m" line that matches the
   "a=sendonly" encoding.

   These "m" lines are CLUE-controlled and hence MUST include their
   "mid" in the CLUE group corresponding to the CLUE group of encoding
   they wish to receive.

4.5.  SDP Offer/Answer Procedures

4.5.1.  Generating the Initial Offer

   A CLUE-capable device sending an initial SDP offer of a SIP session
   SHOULD include an "m" line for the data channel to convey the CLUE
   protocol, along with a CLUE group containing the "mid" of the data
   channel "m" line.

   For interoperability with non-CLUE devices a CLUE-capable device
   sending an initial SDP offer SHOULD NOT include any "m" line for
   CLUE-controlled media beyond the "m" line for the CLUE data channel,
   and SHOULD include at least one non-CLUE-controlled media "m" line.

   If the device has evidence that the receiver is also CLUE-capable,
   for instance due to receiving an initial INVITE with no SDP but
   including a "sip.clue" media feature tag, the above recommendation is
   waived, and the initial offer MAY contain "m" lines for CLUE-
   controlled media.

   With the same interoperability recommendations as for encodings, the
   sender of the initial SDP offer MAY also include "a=recvonly" media
   lines to preallocate "m" lines to receive media.  Alternatively, it
   MAY wait until CLUE protocol negotiation has completed before
   including these lines in a new offer/answer exchange - see Section 5
   for recommendations.

4.5.2.  Generating the Answer

4.5.2.1.  Negotiating use of CLUE and the CLUE data channel

   If the recipient is CLUE-capable and the initial offer contains both
   an "m" line for a data channel and a CLUE group containing the "mid"
   for that "m" line, they SHOULD negotiate data channel support for an
   "m" line, and include the "mid" of that "m" line in a corresponding
   CLUE group.

Internet-Draft               CLUE Signaling                  August 2014


   A CLUE-capable recipient that receives an "m" line for a data channel
   but no corresponding CLUE group containing the "mid" of that "m" line
   SHOULD include a corresponding data channel "m" line if there are any
   other non-CLUE protocols it can convey over that channel, otherwise
   it SHOULD NOT negotiate the data channel.

4.5.2.2.  Negotiating CLUE-controlled media

   If the initial offer contained "a=recvonly" CLUE-controlled media
   lines the recipient SHOULD include corresponding "a=sendonly" CLUE-
   controlled media lines, up to the maximum number of encodings it
   wishes to advertise.  As CLUE-controlled media, the "mid" of these
   "m" lines must be included in the corresponding CLUE group.

   If the initial offer contained "a=sendonly" CLUE-controlled media
   lines the recipient MAY include corresponding "a=recvonly" CLUE-
   controlled media lines, up to the maximum number of capture encodings
   it wishes to receive.  Alternatively, it MAY wait until CLUE protocol
   negotiation has completed before including these lines in a new
   offer/answer exchange - see Section 5 for recommendations.

4.5.2.3.  Negotiating non-CLUE controlled media

   A CLUE-controlled device implementation may prefer to render initial,
   single-stream audio and/or video for the user as rapidly as possible,
   transitioning to CLUE-controlled media once that has been negotiated.
   Alternatively, an implementation may wish to suppress initial media,
   only providing media once the final, CLUE-controlled streams have
   been negotiated.

   The receiver of the initial offer, if making the call CLUE-enabled
   with their SDP answer, can make their preference clear by their
   action in accepting or rejecting non-CLUE-controlled media lines.
   Rejecting these "m" lines will ensure that no non-CLUE-controlled
   media flows before the CLUe-controlled media is negotiated.  In
   contrast, accepting one or more non-CLUE-controlled "m" lines in this
   initial answer will enable initial media to flow.

   If the answerer chooses to send initial non-CLUE-controlled media in
   a CLUE-enabled call, Section 4.5.4.1 addresses the need to disable it
   once CLUE-controlled media is fully negotiated.

4.5.3.  Processing the initial Offer/Answer negotiation

   In the event that both offer and answer include a data channel "m"
   line with a mid value included in corresponding CLUE groups CLUE has
   been successfully negotiated and the call is now CLUE-enabled,
   otherwise the call is not CLUE-enabled.

Internet-Draft               CLUE Signaling                  August 2014


4.5.3.1.  Successful CLUE negotiation

   In the event of successful CLUE-enablement of the call, devices MUST
   now begin negotiation of the CLUE channel, see
   [I-D.ietf-clue-datachannel] for negotiation details.  If negotiation
   is successful, sending of CLUE protocol [I-D.presta-clue-protocol]
   messages can begin.

   A CLUE-capable device MAY choose not to send media on the non-CLUE-
   controlled channels during the period in which control of the CLUE-
   controlled media lines is being negotiated.  However, a CLUE-capable
   device MUST still be prepared to receive media on non-CLUE-controlled
   media lines that have been successfully negotiated as defined in
   [RFC3264].

   If either side of the call wishes to add additional CLUE-controlled
   "m" line to send or receive CLUE-controlled media they MAY now send a
   SIP request with a new SDP offer.  Note that if BUNDLE has been
   successfully negotiated and a Bundle Address Synchronization offer is
   required, the device to receive that offer SHOULD NOT generate a new
   SDP offer until it has received that BAS offer.

4.5.3.2.  CLUE negotiation failure

   In the event that the negotiation of CLUE fails and the call is not
   CLUE-enabled in the initial offer/answer then CLUE is not in use in
   the call, and the CLUE-capable devices MUST either revert to non-CLUE
   behaviour or terminate the call.

4.5.4.  Modifying the session

4.5.4.1.  Adding and removing CLUE-controlled media

   Subsequent offer/answer exchanges MAY add additional "m" lines for
   CLUE-controlled media; in most cases at least one additional exchange
   will be required before both sides have added all the encodings and
   ability to receive encodings that they desire.  Devices MAY delay
   adding "a=recvonly" CLUE-controlled m-lines until after CLUE protocol
   negotiation completes - see Section 5 for recommendations.

   Subsequent offer/answer exchanges MAY also deactive "m" lines for
   CLUE-controlled media.

   Once CLUE media has been successfully negotiated devices SHOULD
   ensure that non-CLUE-controlled media is deactived in cases where it
   corresponds to the media type of CLUE-controlled media that has been
   successfully negotiated.  This deactivate may require an additional

   SDP exchange, or may be incorporated into one that is part of the
   CLUE negotiation.

4.5.4.2.  Enabling CLUE mid-call

   A CLUE-capable device that receives an initial SDP offer from a non-
   CLUE device SHOULD include a new data channel "m" line and
   corresponding CLUE group in any subsequent offers it sends, to
   indicate that it is CLUE-capable.

   If, in an ongoing non-CLUE call, one or both sides of the call add
   the CLUE data channel "m" line to their SDP and places the "mid" for
   that channel in corresponding CLUE groups then the call is now CLUE-
   enabled; negotiation of the data channel and subsequently the CLUE
   protocol begin.

4.5.4.3.  Disabling CLUE mid-call

   If, in an ongoing CLUE-enabled call, an SDP offer-answer negotiation
   completes in a fashion in which either the CLUE data channel was not
   successfully negotiated or one side did not include the data channel
   in a matching CLUE group then CLUE for this channel is disabled.  In
   the event that this occurs, CLUE is no longer enabled and sending of
   all CLUE-controlled media associated with the corresponding CLUE
   group MUST stop.

   Note that this is distinct to cases where the CLUE data channel fails
   or an error occurs on the CLUE protocol; see
   [I-D.presta-clue-protocol] for details of media and state
   preservation in this circumstance.

5.  Interaction of CLUE protocol and SDP negotiations

   Information about media streams in CLUE is split between two message
   types: SDP, which defines media addresses and limits, and the CLUE
   channel, which defines properties of capture devices available, scene
   information and additional constraints.  As a result certain
   operations, such as advertising support for a new transmissible
   capture with associated stream, cannot be performed atomically, as
   they require changes to both SDP and CLUE messaging.

   This section defines how the negotiation of the two protocols
   interact, provides some recommendations on dealing with intermediary
   stages in non-atomic operations, and mandates additional constraints
   on when CLUE-configured media can be sent.

Internet-Draft               CLUE Signaling                  August 2014


5.1.  Independence of SDP and CLUE negotiation

   To avoid the need to implement interlocking state machines with the
   potential to reach invalid states if messages were to be lost, or be
   rewritten en-route by middle boxes, the state machines in SDP and
   CLUE operate independently.  The state of the CLUE channel does not
   restrict when an implementation may send a new SDP offer or answer,
   and likewise the implementation's ability to send a new CLUE
   ADVERTISEMENT or CONFIGURE message is not restricted by the results
   of or the state of the most recent SDP negotiation.

   The primary implication of this is that a device may receive an SDP
   with a CLUE encoding it does not yet have capture information for, or
   receive a CLUE CONFIGURE message specifying a capture encoding for
   which the far end has not negotiated a media stream in SDP.  An
   implementation that is

   CLUE messages contain an <encID> which is used to identify a specific
   encoding or captureEncoding in SDP.  The non-atomic nature of CLUE
   negotiation means that a sender may wish to send a new ADVERTISEMENT
   before the corresponding SDP message.  As such the sender of the CLUE
   message MAY include an <encID> which does not currently match a CLUE-
   controlled "m" line label in SDP; A CLUE-capable implementation MUST
   NOT reject a CLUE protocol messages soley because it contains <encID>
   elements that do not match an id in SDP.

   The current state of the CLUE participant or CLUE media provider/
   consumer state machines do not affect compliance with any of the
   normative language of [RFC3264].  That is, they MUST NOT delay an
   ongoing SDP exchange as part of a SIP server or client transaction;
   an implementation MUST NOT delay an SDP exchange while waiting for
   CLUE negotiation to complete or for a CONFIGURE message to arrive.

   Similarly, a device in a CLUE-enabled call MUST NOT delay any
   mandatory state transitions in the CLUE participant or media
   provider/consumer state machines due to the presence or absence of an
   ongoing SDP exchange.

   A device with the CLUE participant state machine in the ACTIVE state
   MAY choose not to move from CONF COMPLETED to PREPARING ADV (media
   provider state machine) or from READY TO CONF to TRYING (media
   consumer state machine) based on the SDP state.  See
   [I-D.presta-clue-protocol] for CLUE state machine specifics.
   Similarly, a device MAY choose to delay initiating a new SDP exchange
   based on the state of their CLUE state machines.

5.2.  Constraints on sending media

   While SDP and CLUE message states do not impose constraints on each
   other, both impose constraints on the sending of media - CLUE-
   controlled media MUST NOT be sent unless it has been negotiated in
   both CLUE and SDP: an implementation MUST NOT send a specific CLUE
   capture encoding unless its most recent SDP exchange contains an
   active media channel for that encoding AND the far end has sent a
   CLUE CONFIGURE message specifying a valid capture for that encoding.

5.3.  Recommendations for operating with non-atomic operations

   CLUE-capable devices MUST be able to handle states in which CLUE
   messages make reference to EncodingIDs that do not match the most
   recently received SDP, irrespective of the order in which SDP and
   CLUE messages are received.  While these mis-matches will usually be
   transitory a device MUST be able to cope with such mismatches
   remaining indefinitely.  However, this document makes some
   recommendations on message ordering for these non-atomic transitions.

   CLUE-capable devices SHOULD ensure that any inconsistencies between
   SDP and CLUE signalling are temporary by sending updated SDP or CLUE
   messages as soon as the relevant state machines and other constraints
   permit.

   Generally, implementations that receive messages for which they have
   incomplete information SHOULD wait until they have the corresponding
   information they lack before sending messages to make changes related
   to that information.  For instance, an implementation that receives a
   new SDP offer with three new "a=sendonly" CLUE "m" lines that has not
   received the corresponding CLUE ADVERTISEMENT providing the capture
   information for those streams SHOULD NOT include corresponding
   "a=recvonly" lines in its answer, but instead should make a new SDP
   offer when and if a new ADVERTISEMENT arrives with captures relevant
   to those encodings.

   Because of the constraints of offer/answer and because new SDP
   negotiations are generally more 'costly' than sending a new CLUE
   message, implementations needing to make changes to both channels
   SHOULD prioritize sending the updated CLUE message over sending the
   new SDP message.  The aim is for the recipient to receive the CLUE
   changes before the SDP changes, allowing the recipient to send their
   SDP answers without incomplete information, reducing the number of
   new SDP offers required.

6.  Multiplexing of CLUE-controlled media using BUNDLE

6.1.  Overview

   A CLUE call may involve sending and/or receiving significant numbers
   of media streams.  Conventionally, media streams are sent and
   received on unique ports.  However, each seperate port used for this
   purpose may impose costs that a device wishes to avoid, such as the
   need to open that port on firewalls and NATs, the need to collect ICE
   candidates [RFC5245], etc.

   The BUNDLE [I-D.ietf-mmusic-sdp-bundle-negotiation] extension can be
   used to negotiate the multiplexing of multiple media lines onto a
   single 5-tuple for sending and receiving media, allowing devices in
   calls to another BUNDLE-supporting device to potentially avoid some
   of the above costs.

   While CLUE-capable devices MAY support the BUNDLE extension for this
   purpose supporting the extension is not mandatory for a device to be
   CLUE-compliant.

6.2.  Usage of BUNDLE with CLUE

   This specification imposes no additional requirements or restrictions
   on the usage of BUNDLE when used with CLUE.  There is no restriction
   on combining CLUE-controlled media lines and non-CLUE-controlled
   media lines in the same BUNDLE group or in multiple such groups.
   However, there are several steps an implementation may wish to
   ameliorate the cost and time requirements of extra SDP offer/answer
   exchanges between CLUE and BUNDLE.

6.2.1.  Generating the Initial Offer

   BUNDLE mandates that the initial SDP offer MUST use a unique address
   for each m-line with a non-zero port.  Because CLUE implementations
   generarlly will not include CLUE-controlled media lines with the
   exception of the data channel CLUE devices that support large numbers
   of streams can avoid ever having to open large numbers of ports if
   they successfully negotiate BUNDLE.

6.2.2.  Bundle Address Synchronization

   When using BUNDLE the initial offerer may be mandated to send a
   Bundle Address Synchronisation offer.  If the initial offerer also
   followed the recommendation of not including CLUE-controlled media
   lines in their offer, they MAY choose to include them in this
   subsequent offer.  In this circumstance the BUNDLE specification
   recommends that the offerer does not "modify SDP parameters that

   could get the answerer to reject the BAS offer".  Including new CLUE-
   controlled media lines using codecs and other attributes used in
   existing media lines should not increase the chance of the answerer
   rejecting the BAS offer; implementations should consider carefully
   before including new codecs or other new SDP attributes in these
   CLUE-controlled media lines.

6.2.3.  Multiplexing of the data channel and RTP media

   BUNDLE-supporting CLUE-capable devices MAY include the data channel
   in the same BUNDLE group as RTP media.  In this case the device MUST
   be able to demultiplex the various transports - see section 7.2 of
   the BUNDLE draft [I-D.ietf-mmusic-sdp-bundle-negotiation].  If the
   BUNDLE group includes other protocols than the data channel
   transported via DTLS the device MUST also be able to differentiate
   the various protocols.

7.  Example: A call between two CLUE-capable endpoints

   This example illustrates a call between two CLUE-capable endpoints.
   Alice, initiating the call, is a system with three cameras and three
   screens.  Bob, receiving the call, is a system with two cameras and
   two screens.  A call-flow diagram is presented, followed by an
   summary of each message.

   To manage the size of this section only video is considered, and SDP
   snippet only illustrate video 'm' lines.  ACKs are not discussed.
   Note that BUNDLE is not in use.

   In INVITE 1, Alice sends Bob a SIP INVITE including in the SDP body
   the basilar audio and video capabilities ("BASIC SDP") and the
   information needed for opening a control channel to be used for CLUE
   protocol messages exchange, according to what is envisioned in the
   COMEDIA approach ("COMEDIA") for DTLS/SCTP channel
   [I-D.ietf-mmusic-sctp-sdp].  A snippet of the SDP showing the
   grouping attribute and the video m-line are shown below.  Alice has
   included a "CLUE" group, and included the mid corresponding to a data
   channel in the group (3).  Note that Alice has chosen not to include
   any CLUe-controlled media in the initial offer - the mid value of the
   video line is not included in the "CLUE" group.

   Bob responds with a similar SDP (200 OK 1), which also has a "CLUE"
   group including the mid value of a data channel; due to their
   similiarity no SDP snippet is shown here.  Bob wishes to receive
   initial media, and so includes corresponding non-CLUE-controlled
   audio and video lines.  Alice and Bob are each now able to send a
   single audio and video stream.  This is illustrated as MEDIA 1.

   With the successful initial O/A Alice and Bob are also free to
   negotiate the CLUE channel.  Once this is successfully established
   CLUE negotiation can begin.  This is illustrated as CLUE CHANNEL
   ESTABLISHED.

   Alice now sends her CLUE Advertisement (ADVERTISEMENT 1).  She
   advertises three static captures representing her three cameras.  She
   also includes switched captures suitable for two- and one-screen
   systems.  All of these captures are in a single capture scene, with
   suitable capture scene entries to tell Bob that he should either
   subscribe to the three static captures, the two switched capture view
   or the one switched capture view.  Alice has no simultaneity
   constraints, so includes all six captures in one simultaneous set.
   Finally, Alice includes an encoding group with three encoding IDs:
   "enc1", "enc2" and "enc3".  These encoding ids aren't currently
   valid, but will match the next SDP offer she sends.

   Bob received ADVERTISEMENT 1 but does not yet send a Configure
   message, because he has not yet received Alice's encoding
   information, so as yet he does not know if she will have sufficient
   resources to send him the two streams he ideally wants at a quality
   he is happy with.

   Bob also sends his CLUE ADVERTISEMENT (ADVERTISEMENT 2).  He
   advertises two static captures representing his cameras.  He also
   includes a single composed capture for single-screen systems, in
   which he will composite the two camera views into a single video

   stream.  All three captures are in a single capture scene, with
   suitable capture scene entries to tell Alice that she should either
   subscribe to the two static captures, or the single composed capture.
   Bob also has no simultaneity constraints, so includes all three
   captures in one simultaneous set.  Bob also includes a single
   encoding group with two encoding IDs: "foo" and "bar".

   Similarly, Alices receives ADVERTISEMENT 2 but does not yet send a
   CONFIGURE message, because she has not yet received Bob's encoding
   information.

   Alice now sends INVITE 2.  She maintains the sendrecv audio, video
   and CLUE m-lines, and she adds three new sendonly m-lines to
   represents the maximum three encodings she can send.  Each of these
   m-lines has a label corresponding to one of the encoding ids from
   ADVERTISEMENT 1.  Each also has its mid added to the grouping
   attribute to show they are controlled by the CLUE channel.  A snippet
   of the SDP showing the grouping attribute, data channel and the video
   m-lines are shown below:

   Bob now has all the information he needs to decide which streams to
   configure.  As such he now sends CONFIGURE 1.  This requests the pair
   of switched captures that represent Alice's scene, and he configures
   them with encoder ids "enc1" and "enc2".  This also serves as an ack
   for Alice's ADVERTISMENT 1.

   Alice receives Bob's message CONFIGURE 1 and sends RESPONSE 1 to ack
   its receptions.  She does not yet send the capture encodings
   specified, because at this stage Bob hasn't negotiated the ability to
   receive these streams in SDP.

   Bob now sends his SDP answer as part of 200 OK 2.  Alongside his
   original audio, video and CLUE m-lines he includes two active
   recvonly m-lines and a zeroed m-line for the third.  He adds their
   mid values to the grouping attribute to show they are controlled by

   On receiving 200 OK 2 from Bob Alice is now able to send the two
   streams of video Bob requested - this is illustrated as MEDIA 2.

   The constraints of offer/answer meant that Bob could not include his
   encoder information as new m-lines in 200 OK 2.  As such Bob now
   sends INVITE 3 to generate a new offer.  Along with all the streams
   from 200 OK 2 Bob also includes two new sendonly streams.  Each
   stream has a label corresponding to the encoding ids in his
   ADVERTISEMENT 2 message.  He also adds their mid values to the
   grouping attribute to show they are controlled by the CLUE channel.

   Having received this Alice now has all the information she needs to

   Bob is not CLUE-capable, and hence does not recognize the "CLUE"
   semantic for grouping attribute, nor does he support the data
   channel.  He responds with an answer with audio and video, but with
   the data channel zeroed.

   From the lack of the data channel and grouping framework Alice
   understands that Bob does not support CLUE, or does not wish to use
   it.  Both sides are now able to send a single audio and video stream
   to each other.  Alice at this point begins to send her fallback
   video: in this case likely a switched view from whichever camera
   shows the current loudest participant on her side.

9.  CLUE requirements on SDP O/A

   The current proposal calls for a new "CLUE" semantic for the SDP
   Grouping Framework [RFC5888].

10.  SIP Signaling

   The current proposal calls for a "sip.clue" media feature tag.

11.  CLUE over RTCWEB

   We may want to rule this out of scope for now.  But we should be
   thinking about this.

12.  Open Issues

   Here are issues pertinent to signaling that need resolution.
   Resolution will probably result in changes somewhere in this

         reason for this - anyone wishing to include the "m" line but
         not immediately use it in CLUE can simply leave it out of the
         <encodingIDList>.)

      *  Added a section on the specifics of relating encodings in SDP
         to <encID> elements in the CLUE protocol, including the fact
         that both ADVERTISMENTS and CONFIGURE messages reference the
         *encoding* (eg, in the CONFIGURE case the sender of the
         CONFIGURE message includes the labels of the recipient's "m"
         lines as their <encID> contents).

      *  Minor revisions to the section on complying with normative SDP/
         CLUEstate machine language to clarify that these were not new
         normative language, merely that existing normative language
         still applies.

      *  Removed appendices which previously contained information to be
         transferred to the protocol and data channel drafts.  Removed
         other text that discussed alternatives to the current approach.

      *  Cleaned up some 'todo' text.

   -01:  Revision by Rob Hansen

      *  Revised terminology - removed the term 'CLUE-enabled' device as
         insufficiently distinct from 'CLUE-capable' and instead added a
         term for 'CLUE-enabled' calls.

      *  Removed text forbidding RTCP and instead added text that ICE/
         DTLS negotiation for CLUE controlled media must be done as
         normal irrespective of CLUE negotiation.

      *  Changed 'sip.telepresence' to 'sip.clue' and 'TELEPRESENCE'
         grouping semantic back to CLUE.

      *  Made it mandatory to have exactly one mid corresponding to a
         data channel in a CLUE group

      *  Forbade having multiple CLUE groups unless a specification for
         doing so is published.

      *  Refactored SDP-related text; previously the encoding
         information had been in the "initial offer" section despite the

         fact that we recommend that the initial offer doesn't actually
         include any encodings.  I moved the specifications of encodings
         and how they're received to an earlier, seperate section.

      *  Added text on how the state machines in CLUE and SDP are
         allowed to affect one another, and further recommendations on
         how a device should handle the sending of CLUE and SDP changes.

   -00:  Revision by Rob Hansen

      *  Submitted as -00 working group document

   draft-kyzivat-08:  Revisions by Rob Hansen

      *  Added media feature tag for CLUE support ('sip.telepresence')

      *  Changed grouping semantic from 'CLUE' to 'TELEPRESENCE'

      *  Restructured document to be more centred on the grouping
         semantic and its use with O/A

      *  Lots of additional text on usage of the grouping semantic

      *  Stricter definition of CLUE-controlled m lines and how they
         work

      *  Some additional text on defining what happens when CLUE
         supports is added or removed

      *  Added details on when to not send RTCP for CLUE-controlled "m"
         lines.

      *  Added a section on using BUNDLE with CLUE

      *  Updated data channel references to point at new WG document
         rather than indivual draft

   draft-kyzivat-07:  Revisions by Rob Hansen

      *  Removed the text providing arguments for encoding limits being
         in SDP and encoding groups in the CLUE protocol in favor of the
         specifics of how to negotiate encodings in SDP

      *  Added normative language on the setting up of a CLUE call, and
         added sections on mid-call changes to the CLUE status.

      *  Added references to [I-D.ietf-clue-datachannel] where
         appropriate.

Internet-Draft               CLUE Signaling                  August 2014


      *  Added some terminology for various types of CLUE and non-CLUE
         states of operation.

      *  Moved language related to topics that should be in
         [I-D.ietf-clue-datachannel] and [I-D.presta-clue-protocol], but
         that has not yet been resolved in those documents, into an
         appendix.

   draft-kyzivat-06:  Revisions by Rob Hansen

      *  Removed CLUE message XML schema and details that are now in
         draft-presta-clue-protocol

      *  Encoding limits in SDP section updated to note that this has
         been investigated and discussed and is the current working
         assumption of the WG, though consensus has not been fully
         achieved.

      *  A section has also been added on the current mandation of
         unidirectional "m"-lines.

      *  Updated CLUE messaging in example call flow to match draft-
         presta-clue-protocol-03

   draft-kyzivat-05:  Revisions by pkyzivat:

      *  Specified versioning model and mechanism.

      *  Added explicit response to all messages.

      *  Rearranged text to work with the above changes.  (Which
         rendered diff almost useless.)

   draft-kyzivat-04:  Revisions by Rob Hansen: ???

   draft-kyzivat-03:  Revisions by pkyzivat:

      *  Added a syntax section with an XML schema for CLUE messages.
         This is a strawhorse, and is very incomplete, but it
         establishes a template for doing this based on elements defined
         in the data model.  (Thanks to Roberta for help with this!)

      *  Did some rewording to fit the syntax section in and reference
         it.

      *  Did some relatively minor restructuring of the document to make
         it flow better in a logical way.

   draft-kyzivat-02:  A bunch of revisions by pkyzivat:

      *  Moved roberta's call flows to a more appropriate place in the
         document.

      *  New section on versioning.

      *  New section on NAK.

      *  A couple of possible alternatives for message acknowledgment.

      *  Some discussion of when/how to signal changes in provider
         state.

      *  Some discussion about the handling of transport errors.

      *  Added a change history section.

      These were developed by Lennard Xiao, Christian Groves and Paul,
      so added Lennard and Christian as authors.

   draft-kyzivat-01:  Updated by roberta to include some sample call
      flows.

   draft-kyzivat-00:  Initial version by pkyzivat.  Established general
      outline for the document, and specified a few things thought to
      represent wg consensus.
