RTCPeerConnection: identityresult event

This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

An identityresult event is sent to an RTCPeerConnection object's onidentityresult event handler to inform it that an assertion has been generated by an associated identity provider (IdP) during the process of creating an SDP offer or answer.

Note: While older versions of the WebRTC specification used events to report assertions, this has been deprecated and removed from the specification. Instead, the peerIdentity property returns a Promise that resolves with an identity or rejects if an error occurs or if unable to validate the identity.
