Technical Summary

    This document describes a method to avoid IP fragmentation in large 
    IKEv2 messages. It shows how to perform fragmentation in IKEv2 
    itself, replacing them by series of smaller messages.
    This allows IKEv2 messages to traverse network devices that don't 
    allow IP fragments to pass through.

    Given that this is a protocol extension, it is meant to be a 
    Proposed Standard.

Working Group Summary

    Was there anything in the WG process that is worth noting?

    The WG discussion of the document was fairly good, with about 
    average participation (which for the IPsecME WG means "the chairs 
    had to beg a bit for more participants, but we then got them"). We 
    also got a "TSVDIR-ish review" of the draft, which got good 
    discussion on the list. There was a reasonable amount of give-and-
    take, and the WG Last Call was uncontentious. A significant point 
    was brought up during IETF Last Call, and was added to the Security
    Considerations as a result of the SecDir review.

    A few issues came up during the first IESG review.  Another series 
    of edits occurred along with detailed reviews by a couple of area 
    experts.  The edited draft went back through WG last call and is 
    ready for IESG review again.

Document Quality

  The draft had working group consensus and there is one implementation 
  to date.

  The WG discussion of the document was fairly good, with about average
  participation (which for the IPsecME WG means "the chairs had to beg a 
  bit for more participants, but we then got them"). We also got a

  list. There was a reasonable amount of give-and-take, and the WG Last 
  Call was uncontentious. A significant point was brought up during IETF 
  Last Call, and was added to the Security Considerations."
