Technical Summary This document describes an efficient way to resume an IKEv2 session after it has failed. This avoids having to re-run the key exchange protocol from scratch, which can be onerous if EAP authentication is involved. The protocol uses an opaque ticket that can be stored by the client or in a centralized storage location. Working Group Summary The document has rough consensus of the IPsecME WG. Document Quality There was interest in this protocol from many vendors, but none have come forward to say that they have implemented it. Personnel The document shepherd is Paul Hoffman; the responsible area director is Pasi Eronen.
