In order to integrate Robust Header Compression (ROHC) with IPsec, a
mechanism is needed to signal ROHC channel parameters between
endpoints.  Internet Key Exchange (IKE) is a mechanism that can be
leveraged to exchange these parameters.  This document specifies
extensions to IKEv2 that will allow ROHC and its associated channel
parameters to be signaled for IPsec Security Associations (SAs).  

This document is a product of the Robust Header Compression Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
