Technical Summary

  This document describes a light-weight point-to-point key management
  protocol variant for the multimedia Internet keying (MIKEY) protocol
  MIKEY, as defined in RFC 3830.  In particular, this variant deploys
  the classic Diffie-Hellman key agreement protocol for key
  establishment featuring perfect forward secrecy in conjunction with a
  keyed hash message authentication code for achieving mutual
  authentication and message integrity of the key management messages
  exchanged.  This protocol addresses the security and performance
  constraints of multimedia key management in MIKEY.
