This document defines the common architecture for Multicast Security
(MSEC) key management protocols that support a variety of
application, transport, and network layer security protocols. It
also defines the group SA (GSA), and describes the key management
protocols that help establish a GSA. The framework and guidelines
described in this document allow for a modular and flexible design of
group key management protocols for a variety of different settings
that are specialized to applications needs. MSEC key management
protocols may be used to facilitate secure one-to-many, many-to-many,
or one-to-one communication.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in

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
