This document aims to assist people attempting to understand the security limitations of existing ION working group protocols RFC 2022 (MARS), and RFC xxxx (NHRP). As RFC 2022 and RFC xxxx share their basic control message protocol(s), this document also identifies common areas amenable to improvement using additional security TLVs.
