Technical Summary

  IKEv2 supports several mechanisms for authenticating the parties,
  including signatures with public-key certificates, shared secrets, and
  Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) methods.  Currently, each
  endpoint uses only one of these mechanisms to authenticate itself.
  This document specifies an extension to IKEv2 that allows the use of
  multiple authentication exchanges, either using different mechanisms
  or the same mechanism.

Working Group Summary

  This document is an individual contribution.  However, there was some
  discussion on the IPsec mail list (from the now closed IPsec WG).

  The document has been stable for some time.  It is also a 3GPP
  dependency for their "WLAN Interworking - Private Network access from
  WLAN 3GPP IP Access" work item.
