Title : IP Multicast issues with IPsec

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.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
