The Internet Key Exchange Version 2 (IKEv2) protocol did have support
for raw public keys, but it only supported RSA raw public keys.  In
constrained environments, it is useful to make use of other types of
public keys, such as those based on Elliptic Curve Cryptography.
This document updates RFC 7296, adding support for other types of raw
public keys to IKEv2.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
