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.

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
