The authors present the Plug-and-Play IP security (PnP-IPsec) protocol. PnP-IPsec automatically establishes IPsec security associations between gateways, avoiding the need for manual administration and coordination between gateways, and the dependency on IPsec public key certificates - the two problems which are widely believed to have limited the use of IPsec mostly to intra-organization communication. PnP-IPsec builds on Self-validated Public Data Distribution (SvPDD), a protocol that they present to establish secure connections between remote peers/networks, without depending on pre-distributed keys or certification infrastructure.
