Final Charter for Working Group

The IPSEC protocols are very strong; however, this strength poses
problems for other parts of the Internet. For example, many different
people have legitimate needs to see port numbers. Network engineers need
to understand what sorts of traffic are being carried, firewalls have to
enforce security policies, etc. This BoF will discuss variants of ESP
that can allow more of the packet to be exposed.
