How are iSCSI, iFCP and FCIP secured over IP networks?

The IETF IP Storage (ips) Working Group is responsible for the definition of standards for the encapsulation and transport of Fibre Channel and SCSI protocols over IP networks.

The IPS Working Group's charter includes responsibility for data security:

Security including authentication, keyed cryptographic data integrity and confidentiality, sufficient to defend against threats up to and including those that can be expected on a public network. Implementation of basic security functionality will be required, although usage may be optional.

The IPS Working Group has created RFC 3723: Securing Block Storage Protocols over IP.

RFC 3723 defines the use of the existing IPsec and IKE (Internet Key Exchange) protocols to secure block storage protocols over IP.
