A Cryptographic Evaluation of IPsec
N. Ferguson and B. Schneier
ABSTRACT: We perform a cryptographic review of the IPsec protocol, as described in the November 1998 RFCs. Even though the protocol is a disappointment--our primary complaint is with its complexity--it is the best IP security protocol available at the moment.
