Technical Summary

   This specification describes a MIKEY modes that relies on a
   centralized key management service.  The mode uses a trusted key
   management service and a ticket concept, similar to that in Kerberos. 

   The new mode also supports features called forking where the exact 
   identity of the other endpoint may not be known at the start of the
   communication session, which is required by some applications, 

Working Group Summary

   msec wg and reviewed by the chairs.

Document Quality

   protocol is one option under consideration by 3GPP.

RFC Editor Note

Please insert the following paragraph at the beginning of Section 12:

  This specification includes a large number of optional features, which adds complexity to
  the general case.   Protocol designers are strongly encouraged to establish strict profiles 
  defining MIKEY-TICKET options (e.g., exchanges or message fields) that SHOULD or 
  MUST be supported.  Such profiles should preclude unexpected consequences from 
  compliant implementations with wildly differing option sets.
