Progress on this issue is awaiting the next WebRTC 1.0 editor's draft, which we presume will include some IdP updates from Martin Thomson.

Does the following make sense for integration of the idP material in Section 8 of the WebRT 1.0 document?

partial interface RTCDtlsTransport {
void setIdentityProvider (DOMString provider, optional DOMString protocol, optional DOMString username);
void getIdentityAssertion ();
readonly attribute RTCIdentityAssertion? peerIdentity;
attribute EventHandler onidentityresult;
attribute EventHandler onpeeridentity;
attribute EventHandler onidpassertionerror;
attribute EventHandler onidpvalidationerror;

You'll want to have a setIdentityAssertion(DOMString assertion) as well, since you aren't feeding this with setRemoteDescription any more.

With that, you could probably remove some of the indirection.

How about reducing the surface area a little:

partial interface RTCDtlsTransport {
    Promise<DOMString> getIdentityAssertion(DOMString provider, optional DOMString protocol = "default", optional DOMString username);
    // this encapsulates onidentityresult and onidpassertionerror in the promise
    Promise setIdentityAssertion(DOMString assertion);
    // this encapsulates onidentityresult and onidpvalidationerror

    readonly attribute RTCIdentityAssertion? peerIdentity;

@martinthomson I like this API overall. I would make it its own interface though that is constructed from a RTCDtlsTransport to keep the security assertion stuff separate from DTLS, or we could make it like stats interface where "secure" transports could derive from...
