Technical Summary

   This document specified the Identity Based Authenticated Key Exchange
   (IBAKE) Protocol.  It claims to avoid two pitfalls of regular IBE:
   1) The PKG does not end up being a de-facto key escrow server,
   2) It adds mutual authentication for communicating parties.

   This is an ISE submission.

publishing.
