This document presents a group key-management architecture for MSEC.
The purpose of this document is to define the common architecture for 
MSEC group key-management protocols that support a variety of 
application, transport, and internetwork security protocols.  To 
address these diverse uses, MSEC may need to standardize two or more 
group key management protocols that have common requirements, 
abstractions, overall design, and messages. The framework and 
guidelines in this document allow for a modular and flexible design of 
group key management protocols for a variety different settings that 
are specialized to application needs.

In the body type:

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.

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
