[asterisk-dev] iax encryption client side

The IAX encryption scheme is documented in the draft RFC 

It should be possible to implement it based on that.
If it isn't, let me know - as I contributed the text and diagram :-)

I wouldn't try 'porting' from asterisk as chan_iax has a _lot_ of other
stuff going on, which makes the crypto harder to fish out.

Subject: [asterisk-dev] iax encryption client side

as far as I've understood at the moment Iax encryption is well supported
on asterisk but there are no clients of any kind supporting it.
Therefore it can only be used to provide inter-asterisk secure
I'm not aware of any portable library which supports iax encryption.
So I would like to understand what would it take to build such a library
in order to get iax encryption on soft clients on various platforms.
Maybe it's possible to do this with some kind of porting from asterisk
source code into iaxclient library
http://www.voip-info.org/wiki-IAXClient but I would like to get your
opinions about possibile solutions.

Best Regards,
