Technical Summary

  This document specifies the mandatory-to-implement cryptographic
  algorithms for the IPsec ESP and AH protocols.  In recognition of the
  fact that mandatory-to-implement algorithm will change over time, this
  document also specifies algorithms that should be implemented because
  they are likely to be promoted to mandatory-to-implement in the

Working Group Summary

  The IPsec Working Group came to rough consensus on this document.

Protocol Quality
