More on algorithms for IKEv2
Based on Gregory's comments and talking to Charlie, I revised my
IKEv2 algorithms document. It's now at
The major change was to move the MODP groups from the main IKEv2
document into the algorithms document, but I also corrected the typos
that Greogy pointed out and updated the reference to RFC 3526 and
made the IANA considerations clearer.
On thing that Gregory asked for that I didn't do (yet) is:
> >- format help: would be nice in 2.1-2.4 to add a 4th column
to each chart

what's what very
I didn't do that because of the difference between "MUST today" and
"MUST tomorrow". That is, I wanted to keep the wording below the
tables being definitive.
no argument about keeping the wording; I wouldn't have suggested removing
it. Adding the column will make ingestion easier on the reader.
Additionally, you could put a "*" by the SHOULD that calls to text below
highlighting the "MUST Later" stuff.
I'm willing to do that if people want it, but I don't consider it all
that hard for someone reading the document to look at the paragraph
after the table to figure out the MUST and SHOULD requirements.
