RFC 2354

This is the means by which repair data is added to a media stream, such that packet loss can be repaired by the receiver of that stream with no further reference to the sender. There are two classes of repair data which may be added to a stream: those which are independent of the contents of the stream, and those which use knowledge of the stream to improve the repair process.
