Greetings again. Cisco has recently posted an IPR statement that is relevant to our charter. Please see <http://www.ietf.org/ietf-ftp/IPR/cisco-ipr-draft-detienne-ikev2-recovery-03.txt>. You can see the patent application referenced in the IPR statement at <http://appft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=/netahtml/PTO/search-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PG01&s1=20080313461.PGNR.&OS=DN/20080313461&RS=DN/20080313461>.

Before reacting to this announcement, please review the IETF's IPR policy at <http://www.ietf.org/ipr/policy.html>, and please read the specific IPR statement carefully. You may wish to inform any legal counsel you have about this.

On a personal note, I believe that it would have been much more appropriate for Cisco to have let the WG know about this IPR before we put the draft by name in our charter. I also note that at least one of the co-authors on the named draft was not informed of the IPR; in my opinion, this is particularly inappropriate.

We will begin the discussion of which secure crash discovery protocol the WG wants to adopt in the next few days, and this IPR statement might or might not affect the outcome, based on what the WG desires.
