Intermediary (potential Eavesdropper) is a protocol entity that sits between the initiator and the recipient and is necessary for the initiator and recipient to perform telecommunications.

Unlike an eavesdropper, an intermediary is an entity that is part of the telecommunications architecture and therefore at least tacitly authorized.

For example, a SIP RFC 3261 proxy is an intermediary in the SIP architecture.
