I'm voting no objection, but support Tim's discuss on the security considerations. Two pieces of advice: * A reference to the security considerations of RFC 4297 from the security considerations section of this document may be about a 70% solution. * When NFS requires security, I understand GSS/Kerberos is one mechanism that is at least widely implemented and may be used more than NFS+IPsec. A discussion similar to the ones in RFC 4297 for IPsec and TLS would be helpful to understand the impact of the GSS/Kerberos mechanism on RDMA. If you need help with such text, I recommend asking Nicolas Williams for help.
