The Internet Key Exchange version 2 (IKEv2) protocol [RFC4306] is a component of IPsec used for performing mutual authentication and establishing and maintaining security associations (SAs). [RFC4307] defines the set of algorithms that are mandatory to implement as part of IKEv2, as well as algorithms that should be implemented because they may be promoted to mandatory at some future time. [RFC4307] requires that an implementation "SHOULD" support Advanced Encryption Standard [AES] Counter Mode [MODES] (AES-CTR) as a Transform Type 1 algorithm (encryption).
