The IPsec series of protocols makes use of various cryptographic
algorithms in order to provide security services.  The Encapsulating
Security Payload (ESP) and the Authentication Header (AH) provide two
mechanisms for protecting data being sent over an IPsec Security
Association (SA).  To ensure interoperability between disparate
implementations, it is necessary to specify a set of
mandatory-to-implement algorithms to ensure that there is at least one
algorithm that all implementations will have available.  This document 
defines the current set of mandatory-to-implement algorithms for ESP and 
AH as well as specifying algorithms that should be implemented because
they may be promoted to mandatory at some future time.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
