The Internet Key Exchange (IKE) and Public Key Infrastructure for X.509
(PKIX) certificate profile both provide frameworks that must be
profiled for use in a given application.  This document provides a
profile of IKE and PKIX that defines the requirements for using PKI
technology in the context of IKE/IPsec.  The document complements
protocol specifications such as IKEv1 and IKEv2, which assume the
existence of public key certificates and related keying materials,
but which do not address PKI issues explicitly.  This document
addresses those issues.  The intended audience is implementers of PKI

This document is a product of the Profiling Use of PKI in IPSEC
Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
