Technical Summary

    This document describes the use of the ChaCha20 stream cipher along
    with the Poly1305 authenticator, combined into an AEAD algorithm
    for both IKEv2 and IPsec.

Working Group Summary

    The document was discussed fairly well in the WG, both as an
    individual draft and then as a WG document. The WG Last Call
    elicited good review and changes to the document during,
    and after, the WG Last Call.

Document Quality

  There is at least one implementation and the draft was reviewed by
  several developers, some have implemented the algorithms in other
  applications to date.


Paul Hoffman is the document shepherd, and Kathleen Moriarty is
the responsible Area Director.


   There are no additional IANA actions.
   IANA has assigned the value 28 as a transform identifier for the
   algorithm described in this document in the "Transform Type 1 -
   Encryption Algorithm Transform IDs" registry.
