1. Summary

The document shepherd is Joe Salowey. The responsible Area Director is Kathleen Moriarty.

This document extends an IETF protocol (GDOI, published as RFC 7407), which distributes IPsec security association policy and keying material used to protect IP multicast packets . The IEC 61850 power utility automation family of standards defines it’s own transport security methods for multicast packets, and these standards specify the use of GDOI to provide the necessary policy and keying material. This draft specifies how the IEC 61850 policy and keying material is distributed within the GDOI protocol.
