This document discusses a method used by the Linux FreeS/WAN project
to opportunistically encrypt traffic between peers without specific
pre-arrangement. It describes the infrastructure necessary to
support this configuration. Opportunistic Encryption (OE) provides
major simplifications of typical configurations, as it scales
linearly rather than quadratically in the number of systems involved.
There are naturally some risks, which are described.

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
