Technical Summary The TCP Authentication Option, TCP-AO, relies on security algorithms to provide authentication between two end-points. There are many such algorithms available, and two TCP-AO systems cannot interoperate unless they are using the same algorithms. This document specifies the algorithms and attributes that can be used in TCP-AO's current manual keying mechanism. Document Quality Vendors have expressed support for this work and begun implementing it and sharing feedback with TCPM. Personnel Wesley Eddy (Wesley.M.Eddy@nasa.gov) is the document shepherd. Lars Eggert (email@example.com) reviewed the document for the IESG. RFC Editor Note Deficiencies in xml2rfc cause an invalid table-of-contents to be generated. As discussed during IETF-77, please manually recreate the table-of-contents.
