Final Charter for Working Group

The KINK working group is chartered to create a standards track
protocol to facilitate centralized key management for IPsec security
associations as defined in RFC 2401, as an alternative to IKE (RFC
2409). Participating systems will use the Kerberos architecture as
defined in RFC 1510 (and its successors) for key management. The goal
of the working group is to produce a streamlined, fast, easily
managed, and cryptographically sound protocol that does not require
public key operations, and is compatible with existing and future
Kerberos infrastructures.

The working group will not require changes to either IPsec (RFC 2401),
or Kerberos (RFC 1510).
