This draft is a work item of the IP Security Protocol Working Group of the IETF.
Title : IKE Authentication Using ECDSA
Author(s) : S. Blake-Wilson, P. Fahn
Filename : draft-ietf-ipsec-ike-auth-ecdsa-02.txt
Pages : 6
Date : 30-Mar-01
This document describes how the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature
Algorithm (ECDSA) may be used as the authentication method within
the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) protocol. ECDSA may provide
benefits including computational efficiency, small signature sizes,
and minimal bandwidth, compared to other available digital signature
methods. This document adds ECDSA capability to IKE without
introducing any changes to existing IKE operation.

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
