A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Better-Than-Nothing Security Working Group of the IETF.

	Title           : An abstract interface between applications and IPsec
	Author(s)       : M. Richardson
	Filename        : draft-ietf-btns-abstract-api-02.txt
	Pages           : 23
	Date            : 2008-11-02

This document explains in the abstract (no language bindings are
provided) how an application may learn that IPsec has been applied to
a conversation or specify that IPsec should be used.  Though this is
useful in general it is particularly useful for applications that
wish to use BTNS (Better Than Nothing Security -- a mode of IPsec
keying), either in conjunction with channel binding or otherwise.
