Document write-up for draft-ietf-ipsecme-ad-vpn-problem-05

1. Summary

This is a document writeup for draft-ietf-ipsecme-ad-vpn-problem-05, prepared by Paul Hoffman for Sean Turner.

The document lists the requirements and likely use cases for auto-discovery IPsec VPNs. These VPNs automate configuration when a very large number of hosts and networks must communicate over IPsec in environments where static configuration is not appropriate. There are already a number of proprietary solutions to this problem, and this document is meant as a precursor to the IETF possibly working on a standardized interoperable solution.

This document is appropriate for Informational because it lists requirements and scenarios, not a protocol.

2. Review and Consensus

The document was reviewed by many people in the WG over many months and there is strong consensus to publish. There is one possible open issue from one WG participant, but that can be dealt with during IETF review.

3. Intellectual Property

Both authors have stated that their direct, personal knowledge of any IPR related to this document has already been disclosed, in conformance with BCPs 78 and 79. There was no WG discussion about any IPR disclosures regarding this document.
