Technical Summary This protocol specification defines methods to encapsulate and decapsulate IPsec Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP) packets inside UDP packets for the purpose of traversing Network Address Translators. ESP encapsulation can be used in both IPv4 and IPv6. ESP encapsulation is used whenever negotiated by the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) protocol. Working Group Summary The IPsec Working Group came to consensus on this document. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed by Russell Housley for the IESG.
