The RTCPeerConnection.onpeeridentity event handler is a property containing the code to execute whent the peeridentity event, of type Event, is received by this RTCPeerConnection. Such an event is sent when an identity assertion, received from a peer, has been successfully validated.

This event handler is obsolete. To detect successful validation of the identity, wait for the promise returned by peerIdentity to resolve successfully with the peer's identity.


peerconnection.onpeeridentity = function;


  • function is the name of a user-defined function, without the () suffix or any parameters, or an anonymous function declaration, such as function(event) {...}. An event handler always has one single parameter, containing the event, here of type Event.


pc.onpeeridentity = function(ev) { alert("onpeeridentity event detected!"); };
