This document describes multiple extension methods of the ISAKMP [RFC 2408] and IKE [RFC 2409] protocols and how the older versions should respond when they receive such extensions. This document mainly tries to describe the best practice of extensions handling in ISAKMP [RFC 2408] and IKE [RFC 2409], so that a future version can be made without break- ing the old existing versions.
