RE: I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-ipsec-ikev2-algorithms-02.txt

Hi all,

I still see no reference to AES with 192 or 256 bits.  Either we have
different names and numbers (such as "ENCR_AES_256_CBC") or else we use the
keylength attribute of the transform payload.  In that case, I think the
encryption method name should be changed to "ENCR_AES_CBC".  Having only
"ENCR_AES_128_CBC" does not make sense.

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts
This draft is a work item of the IP Security Protocol Working Group of the

	Title		: Cryptographic Algorithms for use in the Internet Key
                          Exchange Version 2
	Author(s)	: J. Schiller
	Filename	: draft-ietf-ipsec-ikev2-algorithms-02.txt

The IPSec series of protocols makes use of various cryptographic
algorithms in order to provide security services. The Internet Key
Exchange (IKE [RFC2409] and IKEv2 [IKEv2]) provide a mechanism to
negotiate which algorithms should be used in any even association.
However to ensure interoperability between disparate implementations it
is necessary to specify a set of mandatory to implement algorithms to
ensure at least one algorithm that all implementations will have
available. This document defines the current set of mandatory to
implement algorithms for use of IKEv2 as well as specifying algorithms
that should be implemented because they made be promoted to mandatory
at some future time.
