             MIKEY-SAKKE: Sakai-Kasahara Key Encryption in
                   Multimedia Internet KEYing (MIKEY)

Abstract

   This document describes the Multimedia Internet KEYing-Sakai-Kasahara
   Key Encryption (MIKEY-SAKKE), a method of key exchange that uses
   Identity-based Public Key Cryptography (IDPKC) to establish a shared
   secret value and certificateless signatures to provide source
   authentication.  MIKEY-SAKKE has a number of desirable features,
   including simplex transmission, scalability, low-latency call setup,
   and support for secure deferred delivery.
