Paper Abstract

To solve the conflict between TCP accelerating technology based on PEP middle node and IPSec protocol used in the Satellite Network, NASA and the Hughes Research Laboratory (HRL) each independently proposed a solution named Multilayer IPsec protocol which can integrate IPSec with TCP PEPs. The problem is: Traditional IKE protocol can't work with Multilayer IPSec protocol. In this study, the traditional IKE main mode and quick mode are enhanced for layered IPSec protocol, and an improved layered key distribution protocol: ML-IKE is proposed. This key distribution protocol is used for key exchange between peers and middle node, so that different nodes have different security associations (SA), and different security associations correspond to different IP packet fields, so different SA nodes have different authorization to different IP packet fields. ML-IKE protocol is suitable for layered IPSec, thus layered IPSec can be used for automatic key distribution and update.
