Introduction ------------ This piece of software is a tunnel that compresses VoIP traffic, ie. SIP and RTP traffic. The program is named IP/ROHC or iprohc. It is named according to the compression and transport mechanisms it uses: - the program uses the RObust Header Compression (ROHC) protocol for efficient compression of the RTP datagrams, - the program uses IP packets as transport to avoid the overhead introduced by the UDP or TCP protocols. In addition to ROHC commpression and IP transport, the program uses datagram packing to improve the overall compression performances. The IP/ROHC program is divided into two parts: the server and the client. The server part handles sessions with several clients simultaneously. The client and the server establish two communication channels between them: the control channel that uses TCP for reliability, and the data channel that uses UDP for efficiency. The client establishes and closes a session on the control channel. The client transmits compressed data on the data channel. The control channel is authenticated and encrypted with TLS. Both the client and the server uses TUN interfaces to fake network interfaces.
