Technical Summary This document describes version 2 of the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) protocol. IKE is a component of IPsec used for performing mutual authentication and establishing and maintaining security associations (SAs). This document replaces and updates RFC 4306, and includes all of the clarifications from RFC 4718. Working Group Summary This document is the product of the IPSECME WG. There were no notable issues with the WG process. There were the usual heated discussions, one of which had to be resolved by a design team. But, the eventual result has a wide consensus. Document Quality There are multiple implementations of the IKEv2 protocol. Since this document essentially clarifies the protocol (with only a tiny amount of actual protocol changes), we expect all IPsec vendors to ensure that their implementation is in line with this document. Personnel Yaron Sheffer (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the document shepherd. Sean Turner (email@example.com) is the Responsible Area Director. The IANA Expert(s) for the registries in this document is Tero Kivinen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
