Technical Summary This document describes the use of IKEv2 to negotiate security protocols and transforms for Fibre Channel as part of the Fibre Channel Security Association Management Protocol, which is being specified outside of IETF by INCITS Technical Committee T11. This usage requires that IKEv2 be extended with Fibre-Channel-specific security protocols, transforms and name types. This document specifies the necessary IKEv2 extensions and allocates identifiers for them. Working Group Summary There was no significant dissent. Using new IKEv2 identifiers for Fibre Channel security protocols avoids any possible confusion between IKEv2 negotiation for IP networks and IKEv2 negotiation for Fibre Channel by comparison to an approach based on existing extension mechanisms (e.g., Vendor ID payload). Protocol Quality This document was reviewed by Tero Kivinen as an IKEv2 expert. This document was reviewed by Russ Housley for the IESG.
