SIP: When does proxy server initiate authentication/authorization for the received INVITE request ?

0 votes

While going through rfc 3665 , I stopped where proxy server was sending 407 to originator of INVITE request message.
I want to know in what cases/scenarios, proxy server does this.

The request does not contain the Authorization credentials Proxy requires, so a 407 Proxy Authorization response is sent containing the challenge information.
A new INVITE is then sent containing the correct credentials and the call proceeds.

As we know, when a session is established between two user agents i.e. UAC (User Agent Client) and UAS (User Agent Server), known as Dialog in SIP terminology. I read that a SIP user agent client can trigger INVITE message towards user agent server in an already established session. This scenario is known as "re-invite" but I am unable to think the case in which it happens.
