RTCPeerConnection.getIdentityAssertion()

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

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.

Syntax

pc.getIdentityAssertion();

There is neither parameter nor return value for this method.

Example

var pc = new PeerConnection();

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