Protocol Action: 'MIKEY: Multimedia Internet KEYing' to Proposed Standard
The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'MIKEY: Multimedia Internet KEYing '
<draft-ietf-msec-mikey-08.txt> as a Proposed Standard
This document is the product of the Multicast Security Working Group.
The IESG contact persons are Russ Housley and Steve Bellovin.
Security protocols for real-time multimedia applications have started
to appear, bringing forward the need for a key management solution to
support these security protocols. This document describes a key
management scheme that can be used with real-time applications, for
both peer-to-peer communication and group communication. The document
also shows how MIKEY might work with protocols such as SIP and RTSP.
In particular, it describes how MIKEY can provide keying material for
use with the Secure Real-time Transport Protocol.
