The Resource reSerVation Protocol (RSVP) allows hop-by-hop integrity
protection of RSVP neighbors.  This requires messages to be
cryptographically protected using a shared secret between
participating nodes.  This document compares group keying for RSVP
with per-neighbor or per-interface keying, and discusses the
associated key provisioning methods as well as applicability and
limitations of these approaches.  This document also discusses
applicability of encrypting RSVP messages.  This document is not an
