Ice -- Interactive Connectivity Establishment (ICE)

 

About Ice
English (USA)

Interactive Connectivity Establishment (ICE) is at the same time a NAT traversal technique, a multihomed address selection technique, and a dual stack address selection technique that works by including a multiplicity of IP addresses and ports in both the request and response messages of a connectivity establishment transaction. The IP addresses and ports provided by each side are paired and tested by peer-to-peer connectivity checks until one of these pair is selected to transport data.

ICE was originally defined for the Offer-Answer (RFC 3264) protocol used by SIP and later XMPP, RTCWeb and other realtime media establishment protocol. But it is also used by HIP and RELOAD.
