The changes in this version of the PS/AS draft primarily respond to
Steve Kent's IETF last call comments.  Due to the extensive nature
of the changes, I believe the WG chairs plan to hold another WG
Last Call.  On behalf of the draft authors, I apologize for the
delay in producing this draft revision.

Thanks,
--David

> The Internet network security protocol suite, IPsec, requires 
>    authentication, usually of network layer entities, to enable access

>    control and provide security services. This authentication can be 
>    based on mechanisms such as pre-shared symmetric keys, certificates

>    with associated asymmetric keys, or the use of Kerberos  (via
KINK). 
> The need to deploy authentication information and its associated 
>    identities can be a significant obstacle to the use of IPsec. 
> 
>    This document explains the rationale for extending the Internet 
>    network security protocol suite to enable use of IPsec security 
>    services without authentication. These extensions are intended to 
>    protect communication, providing "better than nothing security" 
>    (BTNS). The extensions may be used on their own (this use called 
>    Stand Alone BTNS, or SAB), or may be used to provide network layer 
>    security that can be authenticated by higher layers in the protocol

>    stack (this use is called Channel-Bound BTNS, or CBB). The document

>    also explains situations for which use of SAB and/or CBB extensions

>    are applicable.
