A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. This draft is a work item of the IP Security Protocol Working Group of the IETF. Title : Policy Framework for IP Security Author(s) : P. Srisuresh, L. Sanchez Filename : draft-ietf-ipsec-policy-framework-00.txt Pages : 10 Date : 03-Mar-99 As policy based networking has become a common place across the Internet with the advent of IPsec, firewalls and other initiatives, it is important for peering end nodes to understand where and why packets enroute are black-holed. End-to-end networking mandates that end nodes be cognizant of the impact policies along various points on the network will have on their packets. The objective of this document is to lay out a framework of policy requirements for end nodes. While the framework is focussed on IPSec based policies, it may be applicable across a wider policy base.

A list of Internet-Drafts directories can be found in http://www.ietf.org/shadow.html or ftp://ftp.ietf.org/ietf/1shadow-sites.txt Internet-Drafts can also be obtained by e-mail. Send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body type: "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-ipsec-policy-framework-00.txt". NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org 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. Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the Internet-Draft.
