                 Generic Raw Public-Key Support for IKEv2

Abstract

   The Internet Key Exchange Version 2 (IKEv2) protocol did have support    for raw public keys, but it only supported RSA raw public keys.  In    constrained environments, it is useful to make use of other types of    public keys, such as those based on Elliptic Curve Cryptography.    This document updates RFC 7296, adding support for other types of raw    public keys to IKEv2.
