This document replaces an algorithm-specific version of raw public keys of the Internet Key Exchange Version 2 (IKEv2) [RFC7296] with a generic version of raw public keys that is algorithm agnostic.

Generic Raw Public-Key Support for IKEv2
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.
