    This is an experimental technology
    Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for the proper prefixes to use 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 spec changes.

    The read-only property RTCPeerConnection.peerIdentity returns a RTCIdentityAssertion, containing a DOMString representing a domain name (idp) and a second DOMString representing a name (name) representing the identity of the remote peer of this connection, once set and verified. If no peer has yet been set and verified, this property will return null. Once set, via the appropriate method, it can't be changed.


     var identity = peerConnection.peerIdentity;


    Is a RTCIdentityAssertion, a dictionary of two values:
    • "idp", a DOMString representing the domain name of the Identity Provider who produced the assertion.
    • "name", a DOMString containing the verified assertion.


    var pc = new RTCPeerConnection();
    var identity = pc.peerIdentity;
    if (identity) {
      alert("Identity of the peer: idp='" +         
            identity.idp + "'; assertion='" +
   + "'");
    else {
      alert("Identity of the peer has not been verified");
