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
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).
