Abstract

This document describes how the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) may be used as the authentication method within the Internet Key Exchange protocol, version 2 (IKEv2). ECDSA may provide benefits including computational efficiency, small signature sizes, and minimal bandwidth, compared to other available digital signature methods. This document adds ECDSA capability to IKEv2 without introducing any changes to existing IKEv2 operation.
