The Multimedia Internet Keying (MIKEY) [RFC3830] specification describes several modes of key distribution solution that address multimedia scenarios using pre-shared keys, Public Keys, and optionally a Diffie-Hellman key exchange. Multiple extensions of MIKEY have been specified, such as HMAC-Authenticated (Hashed Message Authentication Code) Diffie-Hellman [RFC4650] and MIKEY-RSA-R [RFC4738].

MIKEY-IBAKE: Identity-Based Authenticated Key Exchange (IBAKE) Mode of Key Distribution in Multimedia Internet KEYing (MIKEY)
This document describes a key management protocol variant for the Multimedia Internet KEYing (MIKEY) protocol that relies on a trusted key management service. In particular, this variant utilizes Identity-Based Authenticated Key Exchange (IBAKE) framework that allows the participating clients to perform mutual authentication and derive a session key in an asymmetric Identity-Based Encryption (IBE) framework. This protocol, in addition to providing mutual authentication, eliminates the key escrow problem that is common in standard IBE and provides perfect forward and backward secrecy.
