IETF stops work on VPN protocol

Author: JT Smith

Network World Fusion: "The protocol widely used to set up VPN tunnels
is potentially insecure and work on extending its
use should be halted, according to The Internet
Engineering Task Force.

Administrative groups within the IETF have put
a temporary moratorium on extensions to
Internet Key Exchange (IKE) without saying how
long that moratorium should last."
