A Revised Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. This draft is a work item of the Internet Protocol Security Protocol Working Group of the IETF. Title : Simple Key-Management For Internet Protocols-Plus (SKIPP) Author(s) : A. Aziz Filename : draft-ietf-ipsec-aziz-skip-01.txt Pages : 21 Date : 03/27/1995 There are occasions where it is advantageous to put authenticity and privacy features at the network layer. The vast majority of the privacy and authentication protocols in the literature deal with session oriented key-management schemes. However, many of the commonly used network layer protocols (e.g. IP and IPv6) are session-less datagram oriented protocols. We describe a key-management scheme that is particularly well suited for use in conjunction with a session-less datagram protocol like IP or IPv6. We also describe a simple extension of this protocol to provide scalable group key-management for Internet multicasting protocols. In this revision of the draft we describe how the basic certified key infrastructure proposed can be used to negotiate keys for traditional session oriented key-management. This provides perfect forward secrecy, for situations where forward secrecy is essential. We describe a particularly efficient ephemeral key-negotiation mechanism using the basic certified key infrastructure described above, which also addresses some basic privacy related concerns. SKIPP is designed to be plugged into the IP Security Protocol (IPSP) or IPv6. This draft describes how to use SKIPP in the context of the IPSP. Internet-Drafts are available by anonymous FTP.

NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE" command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on how to manipulate these messages. For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us. Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the Internet-Draft.
