This reference implementation intends to provide two distinct modes of operation. The first mode of operation is described as the SteganRTP application running locally on the same host as the RTP endpoint. The second mode of operation is described as the SteganRTP application running on an intermediary host along the route from one RTP endpoint to another. This intermediary host must be forwarding or bridging the RTP traffic as an active man-in-the-middle (MITM). The reference implementation intends for the user experience of running the SteganRTP application to be identical regardless of the mode of operation. This will be accomplished by interfacing directly with the host operating system's network stack in order to hook the desired packet streams.
