Technical Summary This document describes the use of Curve25519 and Curve448 for ephemeral key exchange in the Internet Key Exchange (IKEv2) protocol. Working Group Summary The document did not get many comments in the IPsecME working group. However, this document mostly reuses RFC7748 content defining the Diffie-Hellman groups, as such, this was expected. This document defines how those groups are used in the IKE. Document Quality Although there are no implementations yet, some are planned and are pending on the IANA allocations. Personnel Kathleen Moriarty is the responsible Area Director. Tero Kivinen is the document shepherd. IANA Note IANA is requested to assign two values from the IKEv2 "Transform Type 4 - Diffie-Hellman Group Transform IDs" registry.
