Integrating Robust Header Compression (ROHC) with IPsec (ROHCoIPsec)
offers the combined benefits of IP security services and efficient
bandwidth utilization.  However, in order to integrate ROHC with
IPsec, extensions to the Security Policy Database (SPD) and Security
Association Database (SAD) are required.  This document describes the
IPsec extensions required to support ROHCoIPsec.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
