Secure Real-time Transfer Protocol

It is important to note that use of the Secure Real-time Transfer Protocol (SRTP) RTP profile may prevent specific operational scenarios such as the active MITM scenario described in Section [*]. Encrypting various parts of the RTP header and RTP payload will prevent invasive modification of the payload by an external entity to the RTP session. SRTP, however, won't protect against steganographic embedding of message data prior to the application of the SRTP encryption methods, such as may be performed within the RTP endpoint application itself.
