This document describes new Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) groups
for use in the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) and Internet Key Exchange
version 2 (IKEv2) protocols in addition to previously defined groups.
Specifically, the new curve groups are based on modular arithmetic
rather than binary arithmetic.  These new groups are defined to align
IKE and IKEv2 with other ECC implementations and standards,
particularly NIST standards.  In addition, the curves defined here can
provide more efficient implementation than previously defined ECC
groups.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.
