I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-ipsec-aziz-skip-01.txt

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

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.

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ipsec-aziz-skip-01.txt".
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.

No recognizable part in multipart/alternative.
