Abstract-- Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are the pre-
ferred mechanism for securing sensitive traffic crossing public
networks. Traditionally, configuration of VPN gateways has
been done manually. However, static configuration of gate-
ways is particularly problematic within the context of the
Global Information Grid (GIG), the next-generation network
of networks developed by the US government. For one, GIG
VPNs are expected to consist of tens to hundreds of trusted
networks, which is an order of magnitude greater than cur-
rent deployments. Moreover, trusted networks that essentially
comprise of units in the field (e.g. army companies or ships)
