The IP Security Protocol (ipsec) WG in the Security Area has concluded.

The IESG contact persons are Russ Housley and Sam Hartman. 


The IPsec WG has finished their work. It has taken a very long time,
but the task is finally accomplished. Good job.

There are a few remaining active documents. They deal with the addition of
elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) to IKE and IKEv2. This item was
abandoned by the WG several years ago, and for good reasons, there is renewed
interest. Very few participants are involved in these documents. Therefore, these
documents will progress as individual standards-track documents.

The ownership from the remaining WG documents will be transferred to the
following individuals:

Jerry Solinas <jsolinas at orion.ncsc.mil>

Jerry Solinas <jsolinas at orion.ncsc.mil>

Simon Blake-Wilson <sblakewilson at bcisse.com>

Jerry Solinas <jsolinas at orion.ncsc.mil>

The IPsec WG mail list will remain active.
