A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Multicast Security Working Group of the IETF.

	Title		: IP Multicast issues with IPsec
	Author(s)	: M. Baugher, T. Hardjono, B. Weis
	Filename	: draft-ietf-msec-ipsec-multicast-issues-00.txt
	Pages		: 8
	Date		: 2002-12-6
	
The IPsec Architecture [RFC2401] and IPsec transform RFCs [RFC2402, 
RFC2406] define certain semantics for use of IPsec with IP multicast 
traffic. The recent revisions to each of the protocol documents 
[ESPbis, AHbis] propose changes to those semantics. However, neither 
the existing nor proposed semantics are sufficiently general such 
that IPsec can be used to protect the wide variety of IPv4 and IPv6 
multicast applications that are expected by the IP multicast 
community. This document reviews these semantics and proposes 
changes which would enable IPsec to be generally useful for a wider 
variety of IPv4 and IPv6 multicast traffic.

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.
