Over the past few years, the number of RFCs that define and use IPsec
and Internet Key Exchange (IKE) has greatly proliferated.  This is
complicated by the fact that these RFCs originate from numerous IETF
working groups: the original IPsec WG, its various spin-offs, and
other WGs that use IPsec and/or IKE to protect their protocols'

This document is a snapshot of IPsec- and IKE-related RFCs.  It
includes a brief description of each RFC, along with background
information explaining the motivation and context of IPsec's
outgrowths and extensions.  It obsoletes RFC 2411, the previous 
"IP Security Document Roadmap."

The obsoleted IPsec roadmap (RFC 2411) briefly described the
interrelationship of the various classes of base IPsec documents.
The major focus of RFC 2411 was to specify the recommended contents
of documents specifying additional encryption and authentication
algorithms.  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.
