Per latest webrtc spec we are missing the RTCDtlsTransport interface.

At least partially implementing this interface, specifically the |state| attribute and |onstatechange| event, would allow WebRTC site to detect for the first time if something went wrong with DTLS. Implementing these two should be easy as it only means we would expose internal variables of the transportlayerdtls code.

Allowing to fetch the remote certificate and getting a handle to the RTCIceTransport (bug 1307994) is probably a little bit more effort.

We had to disable some stuff over in wpt (bug 1517444) for this recently.

Is this still on the roadmap?

With RTCDtlsTransport API: getRemoteCertificates the networking stack used by js-ipfs (js-libp2p) should be able to let WebRTC handle encryption & stream muxing in the browser, improving overall performance.

Roughly speaking, this is on the roadmap after get/setParameters is brought up to spec.
