The Internet Key Exchange Protocol version 2 (IKEv2) is a component
of the IPsec architecture and is used to perform mutual
authentication as well as to establish and to maintain IPsec Security
Associations (SAs) between the respective parties.  IKEv2 supports
several different authentication mechanisms, such as the Extensible
Authentication Protocol (EAP), certificates, and Shared Key (SK).

Diameter interworking for Mobile IPv6 between the Home Agent (HA), as
a Diameter client, and the Diameter server has been specified.
However, that specification focused on the usage of EAP and did not
include support for SK-based authentication available with IKEv2.
This document specifies the IKEv2-server-to-Diameter-server
communication when the IKEv2 peer authenticates using IKEv2 with SK.

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

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
