This document defines the terminology, problem statement, and
requirements for implementing Internet Key Exchange (IKE) and IPsec
on clusters.  It also describes gaps in existing standards and their
implementation that need to be filled in order to allow peers to
interoperate with clusters from different vendors.  Agreed upon
terminology, problem statement, and requirements will allow IETF
working groups to consider development of IPsec/IKEv2 mechanisms to
simplify cluster implementations.  This document is not an Internet 
Standards Track specification; it is published for informational purposes.

This document is a product of the IP Security Maintenance and Extensions Working Group of the IETF.
