A number of IETF signaling and routing applications require a set of devices to share the same policy and keying material and include a message authentication code in their protocols packets for authentication . It is often beneficial for this keying material to be chosen dynamically using a group key management protocol. This memo describes the policy required for the Group Domain of Interpretation (GDOI) group key management system to distribute a message authentication code key and associated policy.
