1 9 Tobias Brunner
h1. config setup
2 1 Martin Willi
3 10 Tobias Brunner
h2. both daemons
4 9 Tobias Brunner
5 10 Tobias Brunner
_cachecrls = yes | *no*_
6 11 Andreas Steffen
7 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. certificate revocation lists (CRLs) fetched via http or ldap will be cached in _/etc/ipsec.d/crls/_
8 1 Martin Willi
     under a unique file name derived from the certification authority's public key.
9 3 Martin Willi
10 10 Tobias Brunner
_charonstart = *yes* | no_
11 11 Andreas Steffen
12 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. starts the IKEv2 charon daemon.
13 1 Martin Willi
14 10 Tobias Brunner
_plutostart = *yes* | no_
15 11 Andreas Steffen
16 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. starts the IKEv1 pluto daemon.
17 1 Martin Willi
18 10 Tobias Brunner
_strictcrlpolicy = yes | ifuri | *no*_
19 11 Andreas Steffen
20 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. defines if a fresh CRL must be available in order for the peer authentication based on RSA
21 9 Tobias Brunner
     signatures to succeed. IKEv2 additionally recognizes _ifuri_ which reverts to _yes_ if
22 9 Tobias Brunner
     at least one CRL URI is defined and to _no_ if no URI is known.
23 8 Tobias Brunner
24 10 Tobias Brunner
_uniqueids = *yes* | no | replace | keep_
25 11 Andreas Steffen
26 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. whether a particular participant ID should be kept unique, with any new (automatically  keyed)
27 1 Martin Willi
     connection using an ID from a different IP address deemed to replace all old ones using that ID.
28 8 Tobias Brunner
     Participant IDs normally _are_ unique, so a new (automatically-keyed)  connection  using the same ID
29 9 Tobias Brunner
     is almost invariably intended to replace an old one. The IKEv2 daemon also accepts the value _replace_
30 9 Tobias Brunner
     which is identical to _yes_ and the value _keep_ to reject new IKE_SA setups and keep the duplicate
31 1 Martin Willi
     established earlier.
32 1 Martin Willi
33 10 Tobias Brunner
h2. IKEv1 pluto daemon only
34 8 Tobias Brunner
35 10 Tobias Brunner
_crlcheckinterval = *0s* | <time>_
36 11 Andreas Steffen
37 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. interval in seconds. CRL fetching is enabled if the value is greater than zero.
38 1 Martin Willi
     Asynchronous, periodic checking for fresh CRLs is currently done by the IKEv1 Pluto daemon only.
39 3 Martin Willi
40 10 Tobias Brunner
_keep_alive = *20s* | <time>_
41 11 Andreas Steffen
42 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. interval in seconds between NAT keep alive packets.
43 1 Martin Willi
44 10 Tobias Brunner
_nat_traversal = yes | *no*_
45 11 Andreas Steffen
46 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. activates NAT traversal by accepting source ISAKMP ports different from udp/500 and being able
47 10 Tobias Brunner
     of floating to udp/4500 if a NAT situation is detected.  Used by IKEv1 only, NAT traversal is
48 1 Martin Willi
     always being active in IKEv2.
49 3 Martin Willi
50 10 Tobias Brunner
_nocrsend = yes | *no*_
51 11 Andreas Steffen
52 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. no certificate request  payloads will be sent.
53 1 Martin Willi
54 10 Tobias Brunner
_pkcs11initargs = <args>_
55 11 Andreas Steffen
56 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. non-standard argument string for PKCS#11 C_Initialize() function; required by NSS softoken.
57 1 Martin Willi
58 10 Tobias Brunner
_pkcs11module = <lib>_
59 11 Andreas Steffen
60 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. defines the path during run-time to a dynamically loadable PKCS#11 library. Overrides any
61 10 Tobias Brunner
     path defined during compile-time using the --pkcs11-module configure option.
62 9 Tobias Brunner
63 10 Tobias Brunner
_pkcs11keepstate = yes | *no*_
64 11 Andreas Steffen
65 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. PKCS#11 login sessions will be kept during the whole lifetime of the keying daemon.
66 1 Martin Willi
     Useful with  pin-pad smart card readers where PINs cannot be cached. 
67 6 Martin Willi
68 10 Tobias Brunner
_pkcs11proxy = yes | *no*_
69 11 Andreas Steffen
70 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. Pluto will act as a PKCS#11 proxy accessible via the whack interface.
71 3 Martin Willi
72 10 Tobias Brunner
_plutodebug = *none_* | <debug list> | _all_
73 11 Andreas Steffen
74 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. how much Pluto debugging output should be logged. _none_ means  no  debugging output
75 9 Tobias Brunner
     while _all_ means full output.  Otherwise only the specified types of output separated by white space) are enabled;
76 9 Tobias Brunner
     Available debugging types are _control controlmore crypt dns emitting klips lifecycle natt oppo parsing private raw_.
77 9 Tobias Brunner
     Recommended setting is _plutodebug=control_.
78 9 Tobias Brunner
79 10 Tobias Brunner
_plutostderrlog = <file>_
80 11 Andreas Steffen
81 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. Pluto will not use syslog, but rather log to stderr, and redirect stderr to <file>.
82 3 Martin Willi
83 10 Tobias Brunner
_postpluto = <command>_
84 11 Andreas Steffen
85 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. shell command to run after starting Pluto (e.g., to remove a decrypted copy of the [[IpsecSecrets|ipsec.secrets]] file).
86 9 Tobias Brunner
     It's run in a very simple way; complexities like I/O redirection are best hidden within a script.
87 5 Martin Willi
     Any output is redirected for logging, so running interactive commands is difficult unless they use
88 1 Martin Willi
     _/dev/tty_ or equivalent for their interaction.
89 9 Tobias Brunner
90 10 Tobias Brunner
_prepluto = <command>_
91 11 Andreas Steffen
92 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. shell command to run before starting Pluto (e.g., to decrypt an encrypted copy of the [[IpsecSecrets|ipsec.secrets]] file).
93 9 Tobias Brunner
     It's run in a very simple way; complexities like I/O redirection are best hidden within a script.
94 3 Martin Willi
     Any output is redirected for logging, so running interactive commands is difficult unless they use
95 3 Martin Willi
     _/dev/tty_ or equivalent for their interaction.
96 9 Tobias Brunner
97 10 Tobias Brunner
_virtual_private = <networks>_
98 11 Andreas Steffen
99 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. defines private networks using a wildcard notation.
100 1 Martin Willi
101 10 Tobias Brunner
h2. IKEv2 charon daemon only
102 9 Tobias Brunner
103 10 Tobias Brunner
_charondebug = <debug list>_
104 11 Andreas Steffen
105 10 Tobias Brunner
p((. how much Charon debugging output should be logged. A comma-separated list containing
106 3 Martin Willi
     _type level_ pairs  may  be specified, e.g: _dmn 3, ike 1, net -1_.  Acceptable values for
107 9 Tobias Brunner
     types are _dmn, mgr, ike, chd, job, cfg, knl, net, enc, lib_ and the level is one of
108 10 Tobias Brunner
     _[-1,  0,  1,  2,  3,  4]_ (for silent, audit, control, controlmore, raw, private).
