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.
