The Security Architecture for the Internet Protocol, IPsec, is already defining the way organizations and individuals secure their networks. There is no single document that describes IPsec, but rather an entire body of work, the Requests for Comments (RFCs). This book compiles and organizes these important documents in a single printed volume, and adds a glossary and extensive index. This means you no longer have to wade through countless RFCs trying to find the answer to your IPsec question all solutions are compiled in a single book, with an index that makes them even easier to locate.

Every RFC describing an aspect of the IPsec standard is included here, as are descriptions of most of the cryptographic algorithms used in IPsec. If you buy one IPsec reference, this is the one to choose. Written by members of the IPsec Working Group and other Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) members, this is the most authoritative IPsec text available.

Topics covered in this volume include:

  • Security Architecture for the Internet Protocol (IPsec)
  • The IP Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP)
  • The IP Authentication Header (AH)
  • The Internet Key Exchange (IKE) Protocol
  • The OAKLEY Key Determination Protocol
  • The Internet Security Association and Key Management Protocol (ISAKMP)
  • Algorithm descriptions for MD4, MD5, RC5, RC2, CAST, DES, Diffie-Hellman
