Re: user-to-user vs. host-to-host keying


  Your analysis was limited to DES.  The specifications are
algorithm-independent and NEED to support other algorithms
such as RCx, IDEA, etc.  The need for user-to-user keying
remains clear.  Handwaving about "judicious key management"
is not a meaningful answer even for DES.

  Did you miss Jeff Schiller's comments on this at the Open IPng
Directorate meeting in San Jose ?  I can't do justice to his
remarks but think they were well put.
