This document presents a new group key distribution protocol. The protocol is in conformance with MSEC key management architecture it contains two components: member registration and group rekeying, both downloading group security associations from the Group Controller Key Server to a member of the group. The new protocol is similar to IKEv2 in message and payload formats as well as message semantics.
