The ISAKMP, IKE and IPSec DOI RFCs [RFC2408, RFC2409, RFC2407] specify how an IPSec tunnel is negotiated with an encrypting security gateway (peer), however, they do not specify how the initiator knows who the encrypting peer is. This document specifies a method where the initiator can find the appropriate peer, and also negotiate a mutually acceptable set of proxies.
