Title : Framework for IPsec Protected Virtual Links for PPVPNs
Author(s) : M. Duffy
Filename : draft-duffy-ppvpn-ipsec-vlink-00.txt
Pages : 15

This memo explores some choices that arise when IPsec is to be used
to implement secure 'virtual links' interconnecting customer premises
VPN devices and/or network based virtual routers. The main focus is
on the network based cases.
Requirements are proposed and some relevant aspects of the IPsec
protocol suite are discussed. A number of different protocol
architectures for virtual links are then evaluated.
This memo is informational in nature; it is intended that it will
focus discussion toward a standard in this area.

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.
