Technical Summary

IP Security (IPsec) provides various security services for
IP traffic. However, the benefits of IPsec come at the cost
of increased overhead. This document outlines a framework
for integrating Robust Header Compression (ROHC) over IPsec
(ROHCoIPsec). By compressing the inner headers of IP
packets, ROHCoIPsec proposes to reduce the amount of
overhead associated with the transmission of traffic over
IPsec Security Associations (SAs).
