RTCPeerConnection.setIdentityProvider()

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

The RTCPeerConnection.setIdentityProvider() method sets the Identity Provider (IdP) to the triplet given in parameter: its name, the protocol used to communicate with it (optional) and an optional username. The IdP will be used only when an assertion is needed.

If the signalingState is set to "closed", an InvalidStateError is raised.

Syntax

pc.setIdentityProvider(domainname [, protocol] [, username]);

There is no return value for this method.

Parameters

domainname
Is a DOMString is the domain name where the IdP is.
protocol Optional
Is a DOMString representing the protocol used to communicate with the IdP. It defaults to "default" and is used to determine the URL where the IdP is listening.
username Optional
Is a DOMString representing the username associated with the IdP.

Example

var pc = new PeerConnection();

pc.setIdentityAssertion("developer.mozilla.org");
