                     IPsec Cluster Problem Statement

Abstract

   This document defines the terminology, problem statement, and    requirements for implementing Internet Key Exchange (IKE) and IPsec    on clusters.  It also describes gaps in existing standards and their    implementation that need to be filled in order to allow peers to    interoperate with clusters from different vendors.  Agreed upon    terminology, problem statement, and requirements will allow IETF    working groups to consider development of IPsec/IKEv2 mechanisms to    simplify cluster implementations.
