This document specifies how Generic Network Virtualization Encapsulation (Geneve) can be used to carry IP Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP) and IP Authentication Header (AH) to provide secure transport over IP networks. Using IPSec ESP the Geneve payload is encrypted and integrity protected, and using IPSec AH the Geneve headers and payload are integrity protected.
