Dear Sir or Madam:

We wish to advise the IETF that Certicom believes it has rights
under patents and pending applications that relate to RFC 3526
"More Modular Exponential (MODP) Diffie-Hellman Groups for
Internet Key Exchange (IKE)", RFC 2409 "Internet Key Exchange",
Internet Draft (draft-ietf-ipsec-ikev2-12.txt) "Internet Key
Exchange (IKEv2) Protocol" and other IETF specifications using
MODP Groups (individually and collectively the "IKE
Specifications"). The applicable patents and applications
include, but are not limited to, US Patents #5,933,504,
#6,563,928, #6,078,667, #6,178,507, #6,195,433, US Patent

Certicom will, upon written request, provide a nonexclusive,
