Title : Secure MPLS - Encryption and Authentication of MPLS
Author(s) : T. Senevirathne, O. Paridaens
Filename : draft-tsenevir-smpls-01.txt
Pages : 20

This document specifies a mechanism for securing the MPLS data
plane, ie securing any data carried over MPLS. This work is split
into two aspects: use of IKE to establish the required security
association for secure MPLS and definition of the encapsulation
formats required for the encryption and authentication of MPLS
payloads. Extensions, under the form of a new Domain of
Interpretation, are defined for the use of IKE to set up Security
Associations for secure MPLS.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
