This document discusses how Transport Layer Security (TLS) and IPsec
can be used to secure communication for SIGTRAN protocols.  The main
goal is to recommend the minimum security means that a SIGTRAN node
must implement in order to attain secured communication.  The support
of IPsec is mandatory for all nodes running SIGTRAN protocols.  TLS
support is optional. 

This document is a product of the Signaling Transport Working Group of
the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the
"Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution
