Abstract

   This document describes the problem space and solution requirements
   for developing an IP Security Policy (IPSP) configuration and
   management framework.  The IPSP architecture provides a scalable,
   decentralized framework for managing, discovering and negotiating the
   host and network security policies that govern access, authorization,
   authentication, confidentiality, data integrity, and other IP
   Security properties.  This document highlights such architectural
   components and presents their functional requirements.
