True Reliability and Secure Access

Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a standard SIP request/response which has been encrypted. This operates in the exact same manner as the more traditional HTTPS. As SIP is only used for establishment, control, and teardown of calls, SIP over TLS does not encrypt the actual RTP voice traffic.

SRTP is the Secure Real-Time Transport Protocol; it encrypts the voice traffic. This differs from TLS as it uses opportunistic encryption to exchange keys. Since SIP over TLS already has negotiated a secure channel prior to any traffic being passed, SRTP exchanges its cipher key in the SDP of the encrypted SIP Message.
