Technical Summary
 
   This document provides guidance to designers of AAA key management
   protocols.  The guidance is also useful to designers of systems and
   solutions that include AAA key management protocols.  Given the
   complexity and difficulty in designing secure, long-lasting key
   management algorithms and protocols by experts in the field, it is
   almost certainly inappropriate for IETF working groups without deep
   expertise in the area to be designing their own key management
   algorithms and protocols based on Authentication, Authorization and
   Accounting (AAA) protocols.  The guidelines in this document apply to
   documents requesting publication as IETF RFCs.  Further, these
   guidelines will be useful to other standards development
   organizations (SDOs) that specify AAA key management.
