IKEv2, as specified in [RFC5996], requires that the IKE_AUTH exchange try to create a Child SA along with the IKEv2 SA. This requirement is sometimes inconvenient or superfluous, as some implementations need to use IKEv2 for authentication only, while others would like to set up the IKEv2 SA before there is any actual traffic to protect. The extension described in this document allows the creation of an IKEv2 SA without also attempting to create a Child SA. The terms IKEv2, IKEv2 SA, and Child SA and the various IKEv2 exchanges are defined in [RFC5996]
