A new Request for Comments is now available in online RFC libraries. RFC 3456 Title: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCPv4) Configuration of IPsec Tunnel Mode Author(s): B. Patel, B. Aboba, S. Kelly, V. Gupta Status: Standards Track Date: January 2003 Mailbox: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com Pages: 18 Characters: 40340 Updates/Obsoletes/SeeAlso: None I-D Tag: draft-ietf-ipsec-dhcp-13.txt URL: ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc3456.txt This memo explores the requirements for host configuration in IPsec tunnel mode, and describes how the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCPv4) may be leveraged for configuration. In many remote access scenarios, a mechanism for making the remote host appear to be present on the local corporate network is quite useful. This may be accomplished by assigning the host a "virtual" address from the corporate network, and then tunneling traffic via IPsec from the host's ISP-assigned address to the corporate security gateway. In IPv4, DHCP provides for such remote host configuration. This document is a product of the IPSEC Remote Access (IPSRA) Working Group of the IETF. This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol. This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
