This document describes an IP Security Policy architecture that conforms to the requirements set forth in [IPSP-REQ]. The architecture defines the mechanisms and protocols needed for discovering, accessing, and processing security policy information of varying granularity. The architecture accommodates topology and policy changes without need of manual reconfiguration of clients and security gateways.
