Technical Summary This document describes version 2 of the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) protocol. IKE is the component of IPsec used for performing mutual authentication and establishing and maintaining security associations. Version 2 of the IKE specification includes the contents of what were previously separate documents, including ISAKMP (RFC 2408), IKE version 1 (RFC 2409), the Internet DOI (RFC 2407), NAT Traversal, Legacy authentication, and remote address acquisition. Version 2 of IKE does not interoperate with version 1 of IKE. However, it has enough of the header format in common that both versions can unambiguously share the same UDP port. Working Group Summary The IPsec Working Group came to rough consensus on this document. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed by Russ Housley for the IESG.
