This document describes a key management protocol variant for the
Multimedia Internet KEYing (MIKEY) protocol that relies on a trusted
key management service.  In particular, this variant utilizes
Identity-Based Authenticated Key Exchange (IBAKE) framework that
allows the participating clients to perform mutual authentication and
derive a session key in an asymmetric Identity-Based Encryption (IBE)
framework.  This protocol, in addition to providing mutual
authentication, eliminates the key escrow problem that is common in
standard IBE and provides perfect forward and backward secrecy.
