The Security Architecture for the Internet Protocol describes
security services for traffic at the IP layer.  That architecture
primarily defines services for Internet Protocol (IP) unicast

are applied to IP multicast packets.  These extensions are relevant
only for an IPsec implementation that supports multicast.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
