This document defines a new Traffic Selector Type (TS Type) for the Internet Key Exchange Protocol version 2 (IKEv2) to add support for negotiating Mandatory Access Control (MAC) security labels as a Traffic Selector of the Security Policy Database (SPD). Security Labels for IPsec are also known as "Labeled IPsec". The new TS Type, TS_SECLABEL, consists of a variable length opaque field that specifies the security label.

For the definition of Status, see RFC 2026.

For the definition of Stream, see RFC 8729.
