The IEC 62351 power utility automation standards group has chosen to use GDOI (RFC 6407) as their key management method to distribute group keys. The keys protect multicast traffic streams sent by devices monitoring the power grid, and other multicast streams as well. To do this they require some new GDOI payloads. This message is an invitation to review and comment on the new definitions, which are defined in <http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-weis-gdoi-iec62351-9-01>. Since the MSEC WG is not currently active, we hope to progress the draft as an individual submission soon and would appreciate any feedback. If you have comments, please post them to the MSEC list (msec@ietf.org) or send them to the authors (draft-weis-gdoi-iec62351-9@tools.ietf.org).
