This document replaces and updates RFC 5996 (IKEv2), and includes all of the errata for it,
and it is intended to update IKEv2 to be Internet Standard. It was meant to be part of an
effort to move IKEv2 to Full Standard, but that effort flagged; still, the draft has useful
Working Group Summary
The WG discussion of the document was scant, but with enough review to make it acceptable.
There were no objections to adoption.
Are there existing implementations of the protocol? Have a
significant number of vendors indicated their plan to
implement the specification?
Yes, there are implementations. None of the recommendations in this update are radical,
but are trying to progress the current state of security for IPsec, motivating implementers
to make the recommended updates. The WG has not heard
from many implementers. They do know that several plan to update according to this draft
including an OEM provider and a vendor that has implementations.
Here is a diff from RFC5996:
Paul Hoffman (IPsecME WG co-chair) is the document shepherd and Kathleen Moriarty is the
