_ah = <algorithms>_
7 31 Martin Willi
8 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. AH authentication algorithm to be used for the connection, e.g. _hmac-md5_.
9 21 Andreas Steffen
10 23 Tobias Brunner
_also = <section name>_
11 31 Martin Willi
12 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. includes conn section <name>.
13 1 Martin Willi
14 23 Tobias Brunner
_auth = *esp* | ah_
15 31 Martin Willi
16 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. whether authentication should be done as part of ESP encryption, or separately using the AH protocol.
17 1 Martin Willi
     The IKEv2 daemon currently supports ESP only.
18 1 Martin Willi
19 24 Andreas Steffen
_authby = *pubkey* | rsasig | ecdsasig | psk | secret | xauthrsasig | xauthpsk | eap | never_
20 31 Martin Willi
21 1 Martin Willi
p((. how the two security gateways should authenticate each other; acceptable values are *secret* or *psk*
22 25 Andreas Steffen
     for pre-shared secrets, *pubkey* for public key signatures as well as the synonyms *rsasig* for RSA digital
23 24 Andreas Steffen
     signatures and *ecdsasig* for Elliptic Curve DSA signatures. *never*  can be used if  negotiation is  never
24 24 Andreas Steffen
     to be attempted or accepted (useful for shunt-only conns). Digital signatures are superior in every way to
25 24 Andreas Steffen
     shared secrets. In IKEv2, the two ends must not agree on this parameter, it is relevant for the out-bound 
26 21 Andreas Steffen
     authentication  method only. IKEv1 additionally supports the values *xauthpsk* and *xauthrsasig* that
27 21 Andreas Steffen
     will enable _eXtended AUTHentication (XAUTH)_ in addition to IKEv1 main mode based on shared secrets
28 21 Andreas Steffen
     or digital RSA signatures,  respectively. IKEv2 additionally supports the value *eap*, which indicates
29 21 Andreas Steffen
     an initiator to request EAP authentication. The EAP method to use is selected by the server (see _eap_).
30 20 Andreas Steffen
     This parameter is deprecated for IKEv2 connections, as two peers do ot need to agree on an authentication
31 21 Andreas Steffen
     method. Use the _left|rightauth_ parameter to define authentication methods in IKEv2.
32 20 Andreas Steffen
33 23 Tobias Brunner
_auto = *ignore* | add | route | start_
34 31 Martin Willi
35 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. what operation, if any, should be done automatically at IPsec startup. *add* loads a connection without
36 21 Andreas Steffen
     starting it. *route* loads a connection and installs kernel traps. If traffic is detected between
37 21 Andreas Steffen
     _leftsubnet_ and _rightsubnet_, a connection is established. *start* loads a connection and brings
38 21 Andreas Steffen
     it up immediatly. *ignore* ignores the connection. This is equal to delete a connection from the config
39 1 Martin Willi
     file. Relevant only locally, other end need not agree on it (but in general, for an intended-to-be-permanent
40 23 Tobias Brunner
     connection, both ends should use _auto = *start*_ to ensure that any reboot causes immediate renegotiation).
41 1 Martin Willi
42 23 Tobias Brunner
_compress = yes | *no*_
43 31 Martin Willi
44 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. whether IPComp compression of content is proposed on the connection (link-level compression does not work on
45 21 Andreas Steffen
     encrypted data, so to be effective, compression must be done before encryption). A value of *yes* causes IPsec
46 4 Martin Willi
     to propose both compressed and  uncompressed, and  prefer compressed. A value of no prevents IPsec from proposing
47 33 Tobias Brunner
     compression; a proposal to compress will still be accepted.
48 1 Martin Willi
49 23 Tobias Brunner
_dpdaction = *none* | clear | hold | restart_
50 31 Martin Willi
51 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. controls the use of the Dead Peer Detection protocol (DPD, RFC 3706) where R_U_THERE notification messages
52 1 Martin Willi
     (IKEv1) or empty INFORMATIONAL messages (IKEv2) are periodically sent in order to check the liveliness of the
53 21 Andreas Steffen
     IPsec peer. The values *clear*, *hold*, and *restart* all activate DPD. If no activity is detected,
54 21 Andreas Steffen
     all  connections with a dead peer are stopped and unrouted (*clear*), put in the hold state (*hold*)
55 21 Andreas Steffen
     or restarted (*restart*). For IKEv1, the default is *none* which disables the active sending of
56 1 Martin Willi
     R_U_THERE  notifications. Nevertheless Pluto will always send the DPD Vendor ID during connection set up
57 1 Martin Willi
     in order to signal the readiness to act passively as a responder if the peer wants to use DPD. For IKEv2,
58 21 Andreas Steffen
     *none* does't make sense, since all messages are used to detect dead peers. If specified, it has the
59 21 Andreas Steffen
     same meaning as the default (*clear*).
60 1 Martin Willi
61 23 Tobias Brunner
_dpddelay = <time>_
62 31 Martin Willi
63 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. defines  the  period time interval with which R_U_THERE messages/INFORMATIONAL exchanges are sent to the peer.
64 1 Martin Willi
     These are only sent if no other traffic is received. In IKEv2, a value of 0 sends no additional INFORMATIONAL
65 1 Martin Willi
     messages and uses only standard messages (such as those to rekey) to detect dead peers.
66 1 Martin Willi
67 23 Tobias Brunner
_dpdtimeout = <time>_
68 31 Martin Willi
69 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. defines the timeout interval, after which all connections to a peer are deleted in case of inactivity.
70 1 Martin Willi
     This only applies to IKEv1, in IKEv2 the default retransmission timeout applies, as every exchange is used to
71 1 Martin Willi
     detect dead peers.
72 20 Andreas Steffen
73 30 Martin Willi
_inactivity = <time>_
74 31 Martin Willi
75 30 Martin Willi
p((. defines the timeout interval, after which a CHILD_SA is closed if it did not send or receive any traffic.
76 30 Martin Willi
     Currently supported in IKEv2 connections only.
77 30 Martin Willi
78 23 Tobias Brunner
_eap = aka | gtc | md5 | mschapv2 | radius | sim | <type> | <type>-<vendor>_
79 31 Martin Willi
80 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. defines the EAP type to be used if _authby=eap_ is selected. Currently supported values are *aka*
81 21 Andreas Steffen
     for EAP-AKA, *gtc* for EAP-GTC, *md5* for EAP-MD5, *mschapv2* for EAP-MS-CHAPv2, *radius* for the
82 21 Andreas Steffen
     EAP-RADIUS proxy  and *sim* for EAP-SIM.
83 21 Andreas Steffen
     Additionally, IANA assigned EAP method numbers are accepted, or a definition in the form *eap=type-vendor*
84 1 Martin Willi
     (e.g. eap=7-12345 ) can be used to specify vendor specific EAP types. For IKEv2 this parameter is deprecated
85 21 Andreas Steffen
     in favour of _left|rightauth_.
86 5 Martin Willi
87 23 Tobias Brunner
_eap_identity = <id>_
88 31 Martin Willi
89 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. defines the identity the client uses to reply to an EAP Identity request. If defined on the EAP server, the defined
90 21 Andreas Steffen
     identity  will be used as peer identity during EAP authentication. The special value _%identity_ uses the EAP Identity method
91 14 Martin Willi
     to ask the client for a EAP identity. If not defined, the IKEv2 identity will be used as EAP identity.
92 1 Martin Willi
93 23 Tobias Brunner
_esp = <cipher suites>_
94 31 Martin Willi
95 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. comma-separated list of ESP encryption/authentication algorithms to be used for the connection, e.g.
96 21 Andreas Steffen
     _3des-md5_. The notation is _encryption-integrity-[dhgroup]_. If _dh-group_ is specified,
97 1 Martin Willi
     CHILD_SA setup and rekeying include a separate Diffe-Hellman exchange (IKEv2 only).
98 1 Martin Willi
99 23 Tobias Brunner
_forceencaps = yes | *no*_
100 31 Martin Willi
101 23 Tobias Brunner
p((.  Force UDP encapsulation for ESP packets even if no NAT situation is detected.
102 1 Martin Willi
      This may help to surmount restrictive firewalls. In order to force the peer to
103 1 Martin Willi
      encapsulate packets, NAT detection payloads are faked (IKEv2 only). 
104 1 Martin Willi
105 23 Tobias Brunner
_ike = <cipher suites>_
106 31 Martin Willi
107 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. comma-separated list of IKE/ISAKMP SA encryption/authentication algorithms to be used, e.g.
108 21 Andreas Steffen
     _aes128-sha1-modp2048_. The notation is _encryption-integrity-dhgroup_. In IKEv2, multiple algorithms
109 21 Andreas Steffen
     and proposals may be included, such as _aes128-aes256-sha1-modp1536-modp2048,3des-sha1-md5-modp1024_.
110 20 Andreas Steffen
111 23 Tobias Brunner
_ikelifetime = *3h* | <time>_
112 31 Martin Willi
113 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. how long the keying channel of a connection (_ISAKMP or IKE SA_) should last before being renegotiated.
114 1 Martin Willi
115 23 Tobias Brunner
_installpolicy = *yes* | no_
116 31 Martin Willi
117 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. decides whether IPsec policies are installed in the kernel by the IKEv2 charon daemon for a given connection.
118 21 Andreas Steffen
     Allows peaceful cooperation e.g. with the Mobile IPv6  _mip6d_ daemon who wants to control the kernel policies.
119 1 Martin Willi
120 23 Tobias Brunner
_keyexchange = *ike* | ikev1 | ikev2_
121 31 Martin Willi
122 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. method of key exchange; which protocol should be used to initialize the connection. Connections marked with
123 21 Andreas Steffen
     *ikev1*  are initiated with Pluto, those marked with *ikev2* with Charon. An incoming request from 
124 21 Andreas Steffen
     the remote peer is handled by the correct daemon, unaffected from the _keyexchange_ setting. The default 
125 21 Andreas Steffen
     value *ike* currently is a synonym for *ikev1*.
126 20 Andreas Steffen
127 23 Tobias Brunner
_keyingtries = *%forever* | <number>_
128 31 Martin Willi
129 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. how  many attempts (a whole number or _%forever_) should be made to negotiate a connection, or a replacement
130 21 Andreas Steffen
     for one, before giving up. The value _%forever_ means 'never give up'.  Relevant  only  locally, other end need
131 1 Martin Willi
     not agree on it.
132 5 Martin Willi
133 26 Tobias Brunner
134 31 Martin Willi
135 26 Tobias Brunner
p((. synonym for _lifetime_.
136 26 Tobias Brunner
137 26 Tobias Brunner
_lifebytes = <number>_
138 31 Martin Willi
139 26 Tobias Brunner
p((. the number of bytes transmitted over an IPsec SA before it expires (IKEv2 only).
140 26 Tobias Brunner
141 26 Tobias Brunner
_lifepackets = <number>_
142 31 Martin Willi
143 26 Tobias Brunner
p((. the number of packets transmitted over an IPsec SA before it expires (IKEv2 only).
144 26 Tobias Brunner
145 26 Tobias Brunner
_lifetime = *1h* | <time>_
146 31 Martin Willi
147 1 Martin Willi
p((. how  long  a  particular  instance  of a connection (a set of encryption/authentication keys for user packets)
148 21 Andreas Steffen
     should last, from successful negotiation to expiry; acceptable values are an integer optionally followed by
149 1 Martin Willi
     _s_ (a time in seconds) or a decimal number followed by _m_, _h_, or _d_ (a time in minutes, hours,
150 21 Andreas Steffen
     or days respectively) (default _1h_, maximum _24h_).  Normally, the connection is renegotiated (via the
151 26 Tobias Brunner
     keying  channel) before it expires (see _margintime_).  The two ends need not exactly agree on _lifetime_, although if they
152 1 Martin Willi
     do not, there will be some clutter of superseded connections on the end which thinks the lifetime is longer.
153 1 Martin Willi
154 26 Tobias Brunner
_marginbytes = <number>_
155 31 Martin Willi
156 26 Tobias Brunner
p((. how many bytes before IPsec SA expiry (see _lifebytes_) should attempts to negotiate a replacement begin (IKEv2 only).
157 26 Tobias Brunner
158 26 Tobias Brunner
_marginpackets = <number>_
159 31 Martin Willi
160 26 Tobias Brunner
p((. how many packets before IPsec SA expiry (see _lifepackets_) should attempts to negotiate a replacement begin (IKEv2 only).
161 26 Tobias Brunner
162 26 Tobias Brunner
_margintime = *9m* | <time>_
163 31 Martin Willi
164 26 Tobias Brunner
p((. how long before connection expiry or keying-channel expiry should attempts to negotiate a replacement begin; acceptable values
165 26 Tobias Brunner
     as for _lifetime_ (default _9m_).  Relevant only locally, other end need not agree on it.
166 26 Tobias Brunner
167 35 Andreas Steffen
_mark = <value>[/<mask>]_
168 35 Andreas Steffen
169 35 Andreas Steffen
p((. sets  an XFRM mark in the inbound and outbound IPsec SAs and policies (IKEv2 only). If the mask is missing then
170 35 Andreas Steffen
     a default mask of *0xffffffff* is assumed.
171 35 Andreas Steffen
172 35 Andreas Steffen
_mark_in = <value>[/<mask>]_
173 35 Andreas Steffen
174 35 Andreas Steffen
p((. sets an XFRM mark in the inbound IPsec SA and policy (IKEv2 only). If the mask is missing then
175 35 Andreas Steffen
     a default mask of *0xffffffff* is assumed.
176 35 Andreas Steffen
177 35 Andreas Steffen
_mark_out = <value>[/<mask>]_
178 35 Andreas Steffen
179 35 Andreas Steffen
p((. sets an XFRM mark in the outbound IPsec SA and policy (IKEv2 only). If the mask is missing then
180 35 Andreas Steffen
     a default mask of *0xffffffff* is assumed.
181 35 Andreas Steffen
182 23 Tobias Brunner
_mobike = *yes* | no_
183 31 Martin Willi
184 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. enables the IKEv2 [[MobIke|MOBIKE]] protocol defined by RFC 4555. If set to *no*, the IKEv2 charon
185 21 Andreas Steffen
     daemon will not actively propose [[MobIke|MOBIKE]] but will still accept and support the mobility protocol
186 1 Martin Willi
     as a responder.
187 1 Martin Willi
188 23 Tobias Brunner
_modeconfig = push | *pull*_
189 31 Martin Willi
190 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. defines which mode is used to assign a virtual IP. Currently relevant for IKEv1 only since IKEv2 always uses
191 21 Andreas Steffen
     the configuration payload in *pull* mode. Cisco VPN gateways usually operate in *push* mode.
192 1 Martin Willi
193 21 Andreas Steffen
_pfs = *yes* | no_
194 31 Martin Willi
195 1 Martin Willi
p((. whether _Perfect Forward Secrecy_ of keys is desired on the connection's keying channel (with PFS,
196 1 Martin Willi
     penetration of the key-exchange protocol does not compromise keys negotiated earlier). IKEv2 always uses
197 23 Tobias Brunner
     PFS for IKE_SA rekeying whereas for CHILD_SA rekeying PFS is enforced by defining a Diffie-Hellman dhgroup
198 23 Tobias Brunner
     in the _esp_ parameter.
199 21 Andreas Steffen
200 20 Andreas Steffen
_pfsgroup = <modp group>_
201 31 Martin Willi
202 20 Andreas Steffen
p((. defines a Diffie-Hellman group for _perfect forward secrecy_ in IKEv1 Quick Mode differing from the DH group
203 23 Tobias Brunner
     used for IKEv1 Main Mode (IKEv1 pluto daemon only). 
204 23 Tobias Brunner
205 1 Martin Willi
_reauth = *yes* | no_
206 31 Martin Willi
207 1 Martin Willi
p((. whether rekeying of an IKE_SA should also reauthenticate the peer. In IKEv1, reauthentication is always done.
208 4 Martin Willi
     In  IKEv2, a value of *no* rekeys without uninstalling the IPsec SAs, a value of *yes* (the default)
209 23 Tobias Brunner
     creates a new IKE_SA from scratch and tries to recreate all IPsec SAs.
210 23 Tobias Brunner
211 1 Martin Willi
_rekey = *yes* | no_
212 31 Martin Willi
213 1 Martin Willi
p((. whether a connection should be renegotiated when it is about to expire. The two ends need not agree, but
214 1 Martin Willi
     while a value of no prevents Pluto/Charon from requesting renegotiation, it does not prevent responding
215 1 Martin Willi
     to renegotiation requested from the other end, so no will be largely ineffective unless both ends agree on it.
216 1 Martin Willi
217 1 Martin Willi
_rekeyfuzz = *100%* | <percentage>_
218 31 Martin Willi
219 26 Tobias Brunner
p((. maximum percentage by which _marginbytes_, _marginpackets_ and _margintime_ should be randomly increased to randomize
220 26 Tobias Brunner
     rekeying intervals (important for hosts with many connections); acceptable values are an integer, which may exceed 100,
221 26 Tobias Brunner
     followed  by  a '%' .
222 26 Tobias Brunner
     The value of _marginTYPE_, after this random increase, must not exceed _lifeTYPE_ (where TYPE is one of bytes, packets or type).
223 26 Tobias Brunner
     The value _0%_ will suppress randomization. Relevant only locally, other end need not agree on it.
224 16 Andreas Steffen
225 26 Tobias Brunner
226 31 Martin Willi
227 26 Tobias Brunner
p((.  synonym for _margintime_.
228 23 Tobias Brunner
229 34 Tobias Brunner
230 34 Tobias Brunner
231 34 Tobias Brunner
p((. sets the reqid for a given connection to a pre-configured fixed value (IKEv2 only).
232 34 Tobias Brunner
233 21 Andreas Steffen
_type = *tunnel* | transport | transport_proxy | passthrough | drop | reject_
234 31 Martin Willi
235 21 Andreas Steffen
p((. the type of the connection; currently the accepted values are *tunnel*, signifying a  host-to-host,
236 21 Andreas Steffen
     host-to-subnet, or subnet-to-subnet tunnel; *transport*, signifying host-to-host transport mode;
237 21 Andreas Steffen
     *transport_proxy*, signifying the special Mobile IPv6 transport proxy mode;
238 23 Tobias Brunner
     *passthrough*, signifying that no IPsec processing should be done at all; *drop*, signifying that packets
239 20 Andreas Steffen
     should be  discarded; and *reject*, signifying that packets should be discarded and a diagnostic ICMP
240 23 Tobias Brunner
     returned. Charon currently supports only *tunnel*, transport, and transport_proxy connection types.
241 23 Tobias Brunner
242 20 Andreas Steffen
_xauth = *client* | server_
243 31 Martin Willi
244 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. specifies the role in the XAUTH protocol if activated by _authby=xauthpsk_ or _authby=xauthrsasig_.
245 20 Andreas Steffen
246 23 Tobias Brunner
h2. left|right end parameters
247 23 Tobias Brunner
248 27 Daniel Mentz
Connection descriptions are defined in terms of a left endpoint and a right endpoint. For example, the
249 27 Daniel Mentz
two parameters leftid and rightid specify the identity of the left and the right endpoint. For every
250 27 Daniel Mentz
connection description an attempt is made to figure out whether the local endpoint should act as the left or
251 27 Daniel Mentz
the right endpoint. This is done by matching the IP addresses defined for both endpoints with the
252 27 Daniel Mentz
IP addresses assigned to local network interfaces. If a match is found then the role (left or right) that
253 27 Daniel Mentz
matches is going to be considered "local". If no match is found during startup, "left" is considered "local".
254 27 Daniel Mentz
255 1 Martin Willi
_left|right = <ip address> | <fqdn> | %defaultroute | %any_
256 31 Martin Willi
257 33 Tobias Brunner
p((. (required) the IP address of the participant's public-network interface or one of several magic values.
258 33 Tobias Brunner
     If it is _%%defaultroute_, the value will be filled in automatically with the local address of
259 33 Tobias Brunner
     the default-route interface (as determined at IPsec startup time and during configuration
260 33 Tobias Brunner
     update). Either left or right may be _%%defaultroute_, but not both. The prefix % in front of a
261 29 Daniel Mentz
     fully-qualified domain name or an IP address will implicitly set _leftallowany=yes_. If the domain name
262 29 Daniel Mentz
     cannot be resolved into an IP address at IPsec startup or update time then _left=%any_ and _leftallowany=no_
263 29 Daniel Mentz
     will be assumed.
264 1 Martin Willi
265 32 Daniel Mentz
p((. In case of an IKEv2 connection, the value _%any_ for the local endpoint signifies an address to be filled in
266 32 Daniel Mentz
     (by automatic keying) during negotiation. If the local peer initiates the connection setup the routing table
267 32 Daniel Mentz
     will be queried to determine the correct local IP address. In case the local peer is responding to a connection
268 33 Tobias Brunner
     setup then any IP address that is assigned to a local interface will be accepted. Note that specifying _%any_
269 33 Tobias Brunner
     for the local endpoint is not supported by the IKEv1 pluto daemon.
270 27 Daniel Mentz
271 33 Tobias Brunner
p((. If _%any_ is used for the remote endpoint it literally means any IP address.
272 27 Daniel Mentz
273 33 Tobias Brunner
p((. Please note that with the usage of wildcards multiple connection descriptions might match a given incoming
274 29 Daniel Mentz
     connection attempt. The most specific description is used in that case.
275 21 Andreas Steffen
276 21 Andreas Steffen
_left|rightallowany = yes | *no*_
277 31 Martin Willi
278 21 Andreas Steffen
p((. a modifier for _left|right_, making it behave as _%any_ although a concrete IP address has been
279 21 Andreas Steffen
     assigned. Recommended for dynamic IP addresses that can be resolved by DynDNS at IPsec startup or update time.
280 21 Andreas Steffen
281 7 Martin Willi
_left|rightauth = <auth method>_
282 31 Martin Willi
283 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. Authentication method to use locally (left) or require from the remote (right) side. This parameter is 
284 23 Tobias Brunner
     supported in IKEv2 only. Acceptable values are *pubkey* for public key encryption (RSA/ECDSA), *psk*
285 21 Andreas Steffen
     for pre-shared key authentication, and *eap* to [require the] use of the Extensible Authentication Protocol.
286 20 Andreas Steffen
     In the case of *eap*, an optional EAP method can be appended. Currently defined methods are *eap-aka*,
287 20 Andreas Steffen
     *eap-sim*, *eap-gtc*, *eap-md5*, and *eap-mschapv2*.  Alternatively, IANA assigned EAP method
288 7 Martin Willi
     numbers are accepted. Vendor specific EAP methods are defined in the form *eap-type-vendor* (e.g.
289 23 Tobias Brunner
290 23 Tobias Brunner
291 21 Andreas Steffen
_left|rightauth2 = <auth method>_
292 31 Martin Willi
293 1 Martin Willi
p((. Same as _left|rightauth_, but defines a second authentication exchange. IKEv2 supports multiple authentication
294 23 Tobias Brunner
     rounds using _Multiple Authentication Exchanges_ defined in "RFC 4739":
295 23 Tobias Brunner
     This allows e.g. a separate authentication of host and user (IKEv2 only).
296 1 Martin Willi
297 31 Martin Willi
298 23 Tobias Brunner
_left|rightca = <issuer dn> | %same_
299 23 Tobias Brunner
300 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. the distinguished name of a certificate authority which is required to lie in the trust path going from the
301 23 Tobias Brunner
     _left|right_ participant's certificate up to the root certification authority.
302 31 Martin Willi
303 21 Andreas Steffen
_left|rightca2 = <issuer dn> | %same_
304 1 Martin Willi
305 33 Tobias Brunner
p((. Same as _left|rightca_ but for the second authentication (IKev2 only).

_left|rightcert = <path>_
308 31 Martin Willi
309 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. the path to the left|right participant's X.509 certificate. The file can be coded either in PEM or DER format.
310 1 Martin Willi
     OpenPGP certificates are supported as well (IKEv1 only).  Both absolute paths or paths relative to
311 23 Tobias Brunner
     [[IpsecDirectoryCerts|/etc/ipsec.d/certs]] are accepted. By default _left|rightcert_ sets _left|rightid_
312 23 Tobias Brunner
     to the distinguished name of the certificate's subject and _left|rightca_ to the distinguished name of
313 21 Andreas Steffen
     the certificate's issuer. The _left|right_ participant's ID can be overridden by specifying a _left|rightid_
314 7 Martin Willi
     value which must be certified by the certificate, though.
315 21 Andreas Steffen
316 33 Tobias Brunner
_left|rightcert2 = <path>_
317 31 Martin Willi
318 1 Martin Willi
p((. Same as _left|rightcert_ but for the second authentication round (IKEv2 only).
319 23 Tobias Brunner
320 7 Martin Willi
_left|rightfirewall = yes | *no*_
321 31 Martin Willi
322 7 Martin Willi
p((. whether the _left|right_ participant is doing forwarding-firewalling (including  masquerading)
323 1 Martin Willi
     using iptables for traffic from _left|rightsubnet_, which should be turned off for traffic to the
324 21 Andreas Steffen
     other subnet) once the connection is established. May not be used in the same connection description with
325 20 Andreas Steffen
     _left|rightupdown_. Implemented as a parameter to the default _ipsec _updown_ script. Relevant only
326 23 Tobias Brunner
     locally, other end need not agree on it.
327 20 Andreas Steffen
328 20 Andreas Steffen
p((. If one or  both security gateways are doing forwarding firewalling (possibly including masquerading),
329 23 Tobias Brunner
     and this is specified using the firewall parameters, tunnels  established with  IPsec  are exempted from
330 23 Tobias Brunner
     it so that packets can flow unchanged through the tunnels. (This means that all subnets connected in this
331 7 Martin Willi
     manner must have distinct, non-overlapping subnet address blocks.)  This is done by the default 
332 23 Tobias Brunner
     _ipsec _updown_ script (see pluto(8)).
333 23 Tobias Brunner
334 1 Martin Willi
p((. In situations calling for more control, it may be preferable for the user to supply his own updown script,
335 7 Martin Willi
     which makes the appropriate adjustments for his system.
336 23 Tobias Brunner
337 23 Tobias Brunner
_left|rightgroups = <group list>_
338 31 Martin Willi
339 1 Martin Willi
p((. a comma-separated list of group names. If the _left|rightgroups_ parameter is present then the peer must
340 7 Martin Willi
     be a member of at least one of the groups defined by the parameter. Group membership must be certified by a
341 1 Martin Willi
     valid attribute certificate stored in [[IpsecDirectoryAcerts|/etc/ipsec.d/acerts]] that has been issued
342 7 Martin Willi
     to the peer by a trusted Authorization Authority stored in [[IpsecDirectoryAacerts|/etc/ipsec.d/aacerts]].
343 23 Tobias Brunner
     Attribute certificates are not supported in IKEv2 yet.
344 1 Martin Willi
345 12 Martin Willi
_left|righthostaccess = yes | *no*_
346 1 Martin Willi
347 1 Martin Willi
p((. inserts a pair of INPUT and OUTPUT iptables rules using the default _ipsec _updown_ script,
348 1 Martin Willi
     thus allowing access to the host itself in the case where the host's internal interface is part
349 1 Martin Willi
     of the negotiated client subnet. 
350 1 Martin Willi
351 1 Martin Willi
_left|rightid = <id>_
352 31 Martin Willi
353 1 Martin Willi
p((. how the _left|right_ participant should be identified for authentication; defaults to _left|right_.
354 33 Tobias Brunner
     Can be an IP address or a fully-qualified domain name preceded by @ (which is used as a literal string and not resolved).
355 23 Tobias Brunner
356 21 Andreas Steffen
_left|rightid2 = <id>_
357 8 Martin Willi
358 31 Martin Willi
p((. Identity to use for the second authentication of the left participant (IKEv2 only).
359 33 Tobias Brunner
     Defaults to _left|rightid_.
360 23 Tobias Brunner
361 33 Tobias Brunner
_leftikeport = <port>_
362 33 Tobias Brunner
363 33 Tobias Brunner
p((. UDP port the left participant uses for IKE communication. Currently supported in IKEv2 connections only.
364 33 Tobias Brunner
     If unspecified, port 500 is used with the port floating to 4500 if a NAT is detected or MOBIKE is enabled.
365 33 Tobias Brunner
     Specifying a local IKE port different from the default additionally requires a socket implementation that
366 33 Tobias Brunner
     listens to this port.
367 33 Tobias Brunner
368 7 Martin Willi
_left|rightnexthop = %direct | %defaultroute | <ip address> | <fqdn>_
369 23 Tobias Brunner
370 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. this parameter is usually not needed any more because the NETKEY IPsec stack does not require
371 21 Andreas Steffen
     explicit routing entries for the traffic to be tunneled. If _left|sourceip_ is used with IKEv1
372 1 Martin Willi
     then _left|rightnexthop_ must still be set in order for the source routes to work properly.
373 1 Martin Willi
374 23 Tobias Brunner
_left|rightprotoport = <protocol>/<port>_
375 31 Martin Willi
376 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. restrict the traffic selector to a single protocol and/or port. Examples: _leftprotoport=tcp/http_
377 1 Martin Willi
     or _leftprotoport=6/80_ or _rightprotoport=udp_
378 7 Martin Willi
379 23 Tobias Brunner
_left|rightrsasigkey = *%cert* | <raw rsa public key>_
380 31 Martin Willi
381 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. the left participant's public key for RSA signature authentication, in RFC 2537 format using ttodata(3)
382 1 Martin Willi
     encoding. The default value _%cert_ means that the key is extracted from a certificate.
383 1 Martin Willi
384 1 Martin Willi
_left|rightsendcert = never | no | *ifasked* | always | yes_
385 1 Martin Willi
386 1 Martin Willi
p((. Accepted values are *never* or *no*, *always* or *yes*, and *ifasked*, the latter meaning that 
387 1 Martin Willi
     the peer must send a certificate request (CR) payload in order to get a certificate in return.
388 1 Martin Willi
389 33 Tobias Brunner
_leftsourceip = %config | %cfg | %modeconfig | %modecfg | <ip address>_
390 7 Martin Willi
391 1 Martin Willi
p((. The internal source IP to use in a tunnel, also known as [[VirtualIp|virtual IP]].
392 31 Martin Willi
     If the value is one of the synonyms _%modeconfig, %modecfg, %config_, or _%cfg_, an address is
393 1 Martin Willi
     requested from the peer. In IKEv2, a statically defined address is also requested, since the server
394 23 Tobias Brunner
     may change it.
395 21 Andreas Steffen
396 1 Martin Willi
p((. If _leftsourceip=%config_ is set to request a [[VirtualIp|virtual IP]] from the peer then the
397 31 Martin Willi
     responder must define the address-to-be-assigned using a separate conn section with a _rightsourceip_
398 1 Martin Willi
     statement for each client.
399 33 Tobias Brunner
400 33 Tobias Brunner
_rightsourceip = %config | <network>/<netmask> | %poolname_
401 33 Tobias Brunner
402 33 Tobias Brunner
p((. The internal source IP to use in a tunnel for the remote peer. If the value is %config on the responder
403 33 Tobias Brunner
     side, the initiator must propose an address which is then echoed back. Also supported are address pools
404 33 Tobias Brunner
     expressed as _<network>/<netmask>_ or the use of an external IP address pool using _%%poolname_ where
405 33 Tobias Brunner
     _poolname_ is the name of the IP address pool used for the lookup (see [[VirtualIp|virtual IP]] for details). 
406 23 Tobias Brunner
407 23 Tobias Brunner
_left|rightsubnet = <ip subnet>_
408 31 Martin Willi
409 21 Andreas Steffen
p((. private subnet behind the left participant, expressed as network/netmask (actually, any form acceptable to
410 1 Martin Willi
     ttosubnet(3)); if omitted, essentially assumed to be left/32, signifying that the _left|right_ end of the
411 23 Tobias Brunner
     connection goes to the _left|right_ participant only. When using IKEv2, the configured subnet of the peers
412 23 Tobias Brunner
     may differ, the  protocol  narrows  it  to  the greatest common subnet. Further, IKEv2 supports multiple
413 21 Andreas Steffen
     subnets separated by commas. IKEv1 only interprets the first subnet of such a definition. 
414 21 Andreas Steffen
415 1 Martin Willi
_left|rightsubnetwithin = <ip subnet>_
416 31 Martin Willi
417 1 Martin Willi
p((. the  peer can propose any subnet or single IP address that fits within the range defined by
418 1 Martin Willi
     _left|rightsubnetwithin_.  Not relevant for IKEv2, as subnets are narrowed.
419 1 Martin Willi
420 1 Martin Willi
_left|rightupdown = <path>_
421 31 Martin Willi
422 1 Martin Willi
p((. what _updown_ script to run to adjust routing and/or firewalling when the status of the connection
423 1 Martin Willi
     changes (default _ipsec _updown_). Relevant only locally, other end need not agree on it.
424 1 Martin Willi
     IKEv2 uses the _updown_ script to insert firewall rules only, since routing has been implemented directly
425 1 Martin Willi
     into Charon.
