Technical Summary

   This document describes an efficient way to resume an IKEv2 session
   after it has failed. This avoids having to re-run the key exchange
   protocol from scratch, which can be onerous if EAP authentication
   is involved. The protocol uses an opaque ticket that can be stored
   by the client or in a centralized storage location.

Working Group Summary

   The document has rough consensus of the IPsecME WG.

Document Quality

   There was interest in this protocol from many vendors, but none
   have come forward to say that they have implemented it.


   The document shepherd is Paul Hoffman; the responsible
   area director is Pasi Eronen.
