This document describes how the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature
Algorithm (ECDSA) may be used as the authentication method within
the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) and Internet Key Exchange version 2
(IKEv2) protocols.  ECDSA may provide benefits including
computational efficiency, small signature sizes, and minimal
bandwidth compared to other available digital signature methods.
This document adds ECDSA capability to IKE and IKEv2 without
introducing any changes to existing IKE operation.  [STANDARDS TRACK]

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
