This document describes the IKEv2 Mediation Extension (IKE-ME), a
connectivity extension to the Internet Key Exchange IKEv2.  IKE-ME
allows two peers, each behind one or more Network Address Translators
(NATs) or firewalls to establish a direct and secure connection
without the need to configure any of the intermediate network
devices.  To establish this direct connection, a process similar to
Interactive Connectivity Establishment (ICE) is used.
