The project involves work on adding support for RFC 5723 primarily. RFC 5723 proposes an extension to IKEv2 (Internet Key Exchange v2) that allows a client to re-establish an IKE Security Association with a gateway in a highly efficient manner, utilizing a previously established IKE SA. As this RFC might not be enough for the entire GSoC period, I will be working on further adding support for RFC 6023. RFC 6023 describes an extension to the Internet Key Exchange version 2 (IKEv2) protocol that allows an IKEv2 Security Association to be created and authenticated without generating a Child SA.
