This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The RTCPeerConnection.getIdentityAssertion() method initiates the gathering of an identity assertion. This has an effect only if the signalingState is not "closed".

The method returns immediately. If the assertion cannot be generated, an idpassertionerror will be sent to the object.

It is not expected for the application dealing with the RTCPeerConnection: this is automatically done; an explicit call only allows to anticipate the need.



There is neither parameter nor return value for this method.


var pc = new PeerConnection();
pc.getIdentityAssertion(); // Not mandatory, but we know that we will need it in the future.
