This document presents a key exchange method allowing devices managed by a controller (e.g., an SDN management station) to create private pair-wise IPsec SAs without IKEv2 or any other direct peer-to-peer session establishment messages. The method can be used when a full mesh of IKEv2 sessions between IPsec devices is not appropriate.
