This memo describes a combination of security concepts and protocols for 
establishing Security Associations (SA) and cryptographic keys in an 
Internet environment.  A Security Association Protocol which negotiates, 
establishes, modifies and deletes Security Associations and their 
attributes is required for an evolving Internet, where there will be 
numerous security mechanisms and several options for each security 
mechanism.  The key management protocol must be robust in order to handle 
public key generation for the Internet community at large and private key 
requirements for those enclaves with that requirement.      
The Internet Security Association and Key Management Protocol (ISAKMP) 
defines the procedures for authenticating a communicating peer, creation 
and management of Security Associations, key generation techniques, and an 
anti-clogging mechanism, all of which are necessary to establish and 
maintain secure communications (via IPSP or any other security protocol) in
an Internet environment.

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-nsa-isakmp-00.txt".
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-nsa-isakmp-00.ps".
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.
