There shouldn't be any need for an additional control protocol with the
current text. In the processing rules, we differentiate between 6LBR
receiving a key parameter and non-6LBR nodes. Essentially, 6LBR upon
reception of the key parameter immediately removes the old keys and starts
using the new keys for all outgoing traffic. Non-6LBR nodes wait until they
receive one frame secured with the new keys and upon that event remove the
The pledge joining for the first time follows the same behavior, albeit
with a note that it is possible to speed up the process by storing an EB
that was used to discover the JP.
