Technical Summary
  This document specifies how to establish a media session which
   represents a virtual private network using Session Initiation
   Protocol for the purpose of on-demand media/application sharing
   between peers.  It extends the protocol identifier of Session
   Description Protocol (SDP) so that it can negotiate the use of
   Internet Key Exchange Protocol (IKE) for media sessions in the SDP
   offer/answer model.  It also specifies a method to boot up IKE and
   generate IPsec security associations using a self-signed certificate.
