7 36 Andreas Steffen
_aaa_identity = <id>_
8 36 Andreas Steffen
9 36 Andreas Steffen
p((. defines the identity of the AAA backend used during IKEv2 EAP authentication. This is required if
10 36 Andreas Steffen
     the EAP client uses a method that verifies the server identity (such as EAP-TLS), but it does not
11 36 Andreas Steffen
     match the IKEv2 gateway identity.

_also = <section name>_
14 31 Martin Willi
15 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. includes conn section <name>.
16 1 Martin Willi
17 23 Tobias Brunner
_auth = *esp* | ah_
18 31 Martin Willi
19 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. whether authentication should be done as part of ESP encryption, or separately using the AH protocol.
20 1 Martin Willi
     The IKEv2 daemon currently supports ESP only.
21 1 Martin Willi
22 24 Andreas Steffen
_authby = *pubkey* | rsasig | ecdsasig | psk | secret | xauthrsasig | xauthpsk | eap | never_
23 31 Martin Willi
24 1 Martin Willi
p((. how the two security gateways should authenticate each other; acceptable values are *secret* or *psk*
25 25 Andreas Steffen
     for pre-shared secrets, *pubkey* for public key signatures as well as the synonyms *rsasig* for RSA digital
26 24 Andreas Steffen
     signatures and *ecdsasig* for Elliptic Curve DSA signatures. *never*  can be used if  negotiation is  never
27 24 Andreas Steffen
     to be attempted or accepted (useful for shunt-only conns). Digital signatures are superior in every way to
28 24 Andreas Steffen
     shared secrets. In IKEv2, the two ends must not agree on this parameter, it is relevant for the out-bound 
29 21 Andreas Steffen
     authentication  method only. IKEv1 additionally supports the values *xauthpsk* and *xauthrsasig* that
30 21 Andreas Steffen
     will enable _eXtended AUTHentication (XAUTH)_ in addition to IKEv1 main mode based on shared secrets
31 21 Andreas Steffen
     or digital RSA signatures,  respectively. IKEv2 additionally supports the value *eap*, which indicates
32 21 Andreas Steffen
     an initiator to request EAP authentication. The EAP method to use is selected by the server (see _eap_).
33 20 Andreas Steffen
     This parameter is deprecated for IKEv2 connections, as two peers do ot need to agree on an authentication
34 21 Andreas Steffen
     method. Use the _left|rightauth_ parameter to define authentication methods in IKEv2.
35 20 Andreas Steffen
36 23 Tobias Brunner
_auto = *ignore* | add | route | start_
37 31 Martin Willi
38 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. what operation, if any, should be done automatically at IPsec startup. *add* loads a connection without
39 21 Andreas Steffen
     starting it. *route* loads a connection and installs kernel traps. If traffic is detected between
40 21 Andreas Steffen
     _leftsubnet_ and _rightsubnet_, a connection is established. *start* loads a connection and brings
41 21 Andreas Steffen
     it up immediatly. *ignore* ignores the connection. This is equal to delete a connection from the config
42 1 Martin Willi
     file. Relevant only locally, other end need not agree on it (but in general, for an intended-to-be-permanent
43 23 Tobias Brunner
     connection, both ends should use _auto = *start*_ to ensure that any reboot causes immediate renegotiation).
44 1 Martin Willi
45 47 Tobias Brunner
_closeaction = *none* | clear | hold | restart_
46 47 Tobias Brunner
47 47 Tobias Brunner
p((. defines the action to take if the remote peer unexpectedly closes a CHILD_SA (IKEv2 only, see _dpdaction_ for
48 47 Tobias Brunner
     meaning of values). A _closeaction_ should not be used if the peer uses reauthentication or uniqueids checking,
49 47 Tobias Brunner
     as these events might trigger a closeaction when not desired.
50 47 Tobias Brunner
51 23 Tobias Brunner
_compress = yes | *no*_
52 31 Martin Willi
53 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. whether IPComp compression of content is proposed on the connection (link-level compression does not work on
54 21 Andreas Steffen
     encrypted data, so to be effective, compression must be done before encryption). A value of *yes* causes IPsec
55 4 Martin Willi
     to propose both compressed and  uncompressed, and  prefer compressed. A value of no prevents IPsec from proposing
56 33 Tobias Brunner
     compression; a proposal to compress will still be accepted.
57 1 Martin Willi
58 23 Tobias Brunner
_dpdaction = *none* | clear | hold | restart_
59 31 Martin Willi
60 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. controls the use of the Dead Peer Detection protocol (DPD, RFC 3706) where R_U_THERE notification messages
61 1 Martin Willi
     (IKEv1) or empty INFORMATIONAL messages (IKEv2) are periodically sent in order to check the liveliness of the
62 21 Andreas Steffen
     IPsec peer. The values *clear*, *hold*, and *restart* all activate DPD. If no activity is detected,
63 21 Andreas Steffen
     all  connections with a dead peer are stopped and unrouted (*clear*), put in the hold state (*hold*)
64 21 Andreas Steffen
     or restarted (*restart*). For IKEv1, the default is *none* which disables the active sending of
65 1 Martin Willi
     R_U_THERE  notifications. Nevertheless Pluto will always send the DPD Vendor ID during connection set up
66 1 Martin Willi
     in order to signal the readiness to act passively as a responder if the peer wants to use DPD. For IKEv2,
67 1 Martin Willi
     *none* does't make sense, since all messages are used to detect dead peers. If specified, it has the
68 21 Andreas Steffen
     same meaning as the default (*clear*).
69 21 Andreas Steffen
70 41 Tobias Brunner
_dpddelay = *30s* | <time>_
71 1 Martin Willi
72 31 Martin Willi
p((. defines  the  period time interval with which R_U_THERE messages/INFORMATIONAL exchanges are sent to the peer.
73 23 Tobias Brunner
     These are only sent if no other traffic is received. In IKEv2, a value of 0 sends no additional INFORMATIONAL
74 1 Martin Willi
     messages and uses only standard messages (such as those to rekey) to detect dead peers.
75 1 Martin Willi
76 41 Tobias Brunner
_dpdtimeout = *150s* | <time>_
77 31 Martin Willi
78 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. defines the timeout interval, after which all connections to a peer are deleted in case of inactivity.
79 41 Tobias Brunner
     This only applies to IKEv1, in IKEv2 the default [[Retransmission|retransmission timeout]] applies, as every exchange is used to
80 1 Martin Willi
     detect dead peers.
81 20 Andreas Steffen
82 1 Martin Willi
_inactivity = <time>_
83 30 Martin Willi
84 31 Martin Willi
p((. defines the timeout interval, after which a CHILD_SA is closed if it did not send or receive any traffic.
85 30 Martin Willi
     Currently supported in IKEv2 connections only.
86 30 Martin Willi
87 1 Martin Willi
_eap = aka | gtc | md5 | mschapv2 | radius | sim | <type> | <type>-<vendor>_
88 23 Tobias Brunner
89 41 Tobias Brunner
p((. defines the EAP type to propose as server if the client requests EAP authentication. Currently supported values are *aka*
90 23 Tobias Brunner
     for EAP-AKA, *gtc* for EAP-GTC, *md5* for EAP-MD5, *mschapv2* for EAP-MS-CHAPv2, *radius* for the
91 21 Andreas Steffen
     EAP-RADIUS proxy  and *sim* for EAP-SIM.
92 21 Andreas Steffen
     Additionally, IANA assigned EAP method numbers are accepted, or a definition in the form *eap=type-vendor*
93 21 Andreas Steffen
     (e.g. eap=7-12345 ) can be used to specify vendor specific EAP types. For IKEv2 this parameter is deprecated
94 1 Martin Willi
     in favour of _left|rightauth_.
95 41 Tobias Brunner
     To forward EAP authentication to a RADIUS server using the [[EapRadius|EAP-RADIUS plugin]], set *eap=radius*.
96 5 Martin Willi
97 23 Tobias Brunner
_eap_identity = <id>_
98 1 Martin Willi
99 31 Martin Willi
p((. defines the identity the client uses to reply to an EAP Identity request. If defined on the EAP server, the defined
100 23 Tobias Brunner
     identity  will be used as peer identity during EAP authentication. The special value _%identity_ uses the EAP Identity method
101 14 Martin Willi
     to ask the client for a EAP identity. If not defined, the IKEv2 identity will be used as EAP identity.
102 1 Martin Willi
103 1 Martin Willi
_esp = <cipher suites>_
104 23 Tobias Brunner
105 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. comma-separated list of ESP encryption/authentication algorithms to be used for the connection, e.g.
106 48 Tobias Brunner
     _aes128-sha256_. The notation is _encryption-integrity[-dhgroup][-esnmode]_.
107 48 Tobias Brunner
     Defaults to *aes128-sha1,3des-sha1* for IKEv1. The IKEv2 daemon adds its extensive default proposal to
108 48 Tobias Brunner
     this default or the configured value. To restrict it to the configured proposal an exclamation mark (*&excl;*)
109 48 Tobias Brunner
     can be added at the end.
110 48 Tobias Brunner
     *Note*: As a responder both daemons accept the first supported proposal received from the peer. In order
111 48 Tobias Brunner
     to restrict a responder to only accept specific cipher suites, the strict flag (*&excl;*, exclamation mark)
112 48 Tobias Brunner
     can be used, e.g: _aes256-sha512-modp4096!_
113 48 Tobias Brunner
     If _dh-group_ is specified, CHILD_SA setup and rekeying include a separate Diffe-Hellman exchange (IKEv2 only).
114 48 Tobias Brunner
     Valid values for _esnmode_ (IKEv2 only) are _esn_ and _noesn_.  Specifying both negotiates extended sequence
115 48 Tobias Brunner
     number support with the peer, the default is *noesn*.
116 43 Tobias Brunner
     Refer to [[IKEv1CipherSuites]] and [[IKEv2CipherSuites]] for a list of valid keywords.
117 1 Martin Willi
118 23 Tobias Brunner
_forceencaps = yes | *no*_
119 31 Martin Willi
120 41 Tobias Brunner
p((.  force UDP encapsulation for ESP packets even if no NAT situation is detected.
121 1 Martin Willi
      This may help to surmount restrictive firewalls. In order to force the peer to
122 1 Martin Willi
      encapsulate packets, NAT detection payloads are faked (IKEv2 only). 
123 1 Martin Willi
124 23 Tobias Brunner
_ike = <cipher suites>_
125 31 Martin Willi
126 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. comma-separated list of IKE/ISAKMP SA encryption/authentication algorithms to be used, e.g.
127 1 Martin Willi
     _aes128-sha1-modp2048_. The notation is _encryption-integrity-dhgroup_. In IKEv2, multiple algorithms
128 1 Martin Willi
     and proposals may be included, such as _aes128-aes256-sha1-modp1536-modp2048,3des-sha1-md5-modp1024_.
129 48 Tobias Brunner
     Defaults to *aes128-sha1-modp2048,3des-sha1-modp1536* for IKEv1. The IKEv2 daemon adds its extensive
130 48 Tobias Brunner
     default proposal to this default or the configured value. To restrict it to the configured proposal an
131 48 Tobias Brunner
     exclamation mark (*&excl;*) can be added at the end.
132 48 Tobias Brunner
     *Note*: As a responder both daemons accept the first supported proposal received from the peer. In order
133 48 Tobias Brunner
     to restrict a responder to only accept specific cipher suites, the strict flag (*&excl;*, exclamation mark)
134 48 Tobias Brunner
     can be used, e.g: _aes256-sha512-modp4096!_
135 43 Tobias Brunner
     Refer to [[IKEv1CipherSuites]] and [[IKEv2CipherSuites]] for a list of valid keywords.

_ikelifetime = *3h* | <time>_
138 31 Martin Willi
139 40 Tobias Brunner
p((. how long the keying channel of a connection (_ISAKMP or IKE SA_) should last before being renegotiated. Also see [[ExpiryRekey|Expiry and Rekey]].
140 1 Martin Willi
141 23 Tobias Brunner
_installpolicy = *yes* | no_
142 31 Martin Willi
143 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. decides whether IPsec policies are installed in the kernel by the IKEv2 charon daemon for a given connection.
144 21 Andreas Steffen
     Allows peaceful cooperation e.g. with the Mobile IPv6  _mip6d_ daemon who wants to control the kernel policies.
145 1 Martin Willi
146 23 Tobias Brunner
_keyexchange = *ike* | ikev1 | ikev2_
147 31 Martin Willi
148 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. method of key exchange; which protocol should be used to initialize the connection. Connections marked with
149 21 Andreas Steffen
     *ikev1*  are initiated with Pluto, those marked with *ikev2* with Charon. An incoming request from 
150 38 Andreas Steffen
     the remote peer is handled by the correct daemon, unaffected from the _keyexchange_ setting. Starting with
151 38 Andreas Steffen
     strongSwan 4.5 the default value *ike* is a synonym for *ikev2*, whereas in older strongSwan releases *ikev1*
152 38 Andreas Steffen
     was assumed.
153 20 Andreas Steffen
154 45 Tobias Brunner
_keyingtries = *3* | <number> | %forever_
155 31 Martin Willi
156 46 Daniel Mentz
p((. how  many attempts (a positive integer or _%forever_) should be made to negotiate a connection, or a replacement
157 45 Tobias Brunner
     for one, before giving up (default 3). The value _%forever_ means 'never give up'.  Relevant  only  locally, other end need
158 1 Martin Willi
     not agree on it.
159 5 Martin Willi
160 26 Tobias Brunner
161 31 Martin Willi
162 26 Tobias Brunner
p((. synonym for _lifetime_.
163 26 Tobias Brunner
164 26 Tobias Brunner
_lifebytes = <number>_
165 31 Martin Willi
166 26 Tobias Brunner
p((. the number of bytes transmitted over an IPsec SA before it expires (IKEv2 only).
167 26 Tobias Brunner
168 26 Tobias Brunner
_lifepackets = <number>_
169 31 Martin Willi
170 26 Tobias Brunner
p((. the number of packets transmitted over an IPsec SA before it expires (IKEv2 only).
171 26 Tobias Brunner
172 26 Tobias Brunner
_lifetime = *1h* | <time>_
173 31 Martin Willi
174 1 Martin Willi
p((. how  long  a  particular  instance  of a connection (a set of encryption/authentication keys for user packets)
175 21 Andreas Steffen
     should last, from successful negotiation to expiry; acceptable values are an integer optionally followed by
176 1 Martin Willi
     _s_ (a time in seconds) or a decimal number followed by _m_, _h_, or _d_ (a time in minutes, hours,
177 21 Andreas Steffen
     or days respectively) (default _1h_, maximum _24h_).  Normally, the connection is renegotiated (via the
178 26 Tobias Brunner
     keying  channel) before it expires (see _margintime_).  The two ends need not exactly agree on _lifetime_, although if they
179 1 Martin Willi
     do not, there will be some clutter of superseded connections on the end which thinks the lifetime is longer.

181 1 Martin Willi
182 26 Tobias Brunner
_marginbytes = <number>_
183 31 Martin Willi

p((. how many bytes before IPsec SA expiry (see _lifebytes_) should attempts to negotiate a replacement begin (IKEv2 only).
185 26 Tobias Brunner
186 26 Tobias Brunner
_marginpackets = <number>_
187 31 Martin Willi
188 26 Tobias Brunner

189 26 Tobias Brunner
190 26 Tobias Brunner
_margintime = *9m* | <time>_
191 1 Martin Willi
192 26 Tobias Brunner
p((. how long before connection expiry or keying-channel expiry should attempts to negotiate a replacement begin; acceptable values
193 40 Tobias Brunner
     as for _lifetime_ (default _9m_).  Relevant only locally, other end need not agree on it. Also see [[ExpiryRekey|Expiry and Rekey]].
194 26 Tobias Brunner
195 35 Andreas Steffen
_mark = <value>[/<mask>]_
196 35 Andreas Steffen
197 37 Tobias Brunner
p((. sets  an XFRM mark in the inbound and outbound IPsec SAs and policies. If the mask is missing then
198 35 Andreas Steffen
     a default mask of *0xffffffff* is assumed.
199 39 Gerd v. Egidy
     If using not the default mask make sure that the mark <value> given is the first <value> value valid 
200 39 Gerd v. Egidy
     in this mark (Bits which are zero in the <mask> must be zero in the <value> too).
201 35 Andreas Steffen

_mark_in = <value>[/<mask>]_
203 35 Andreas Steffen
204 37 Tobias Brunner
p((. sets an XFRM mark in the inbound IPsec SA and policy. If the mask is missing then
205 35 Andreas Steffen
     a default mask of *0xffffffff* is assumed.
206 39 Gerd v. Egidy
     If using not the default mask make sure that the mark <value> given is the first <value> value valid

_mark_out = <value>[/<mask>]_
210 35 Andreas Steffen
211 37 Tobias Brunner
p((. sets an XFRM mark in the outbound IPsec SA and policy. If the mask is missing then
212 35 Andreas Steffen
     a default mask of *0xffffffff* is assumed.
213 39 Gerd v. Egidy
     If using not the default mask make sure that the mark <value> given is the first <value> value valid 
214 39 Gerd v. Egidy
     in this mark (Bits which are zero in the <mask> must be zero in the <value> too).
215 35 Andreas Steffen
216 23 Tobias Brunner
_mobike = *yes* | no_
217 31 Martin Willi
218 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. enables the IKEv2 [[MobIke|MOBIKE]] protocol defined by RFC 4555. If set to *no*, the IKEv2 charon
219 21 Andreas Steffen
     daemon will not actively propose [[MobIke|MOBIKE]] but will still accept and support the mobility protocol
220 1 Martin Willi
     as a responder.
221 1 Martin Willi
222 23 Tobias Brunner
_modeconfig = push | *pull*_
223 31 Martin Willi
224 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. defines which mode is used to assign a virtual IP. Currently relevant for IKEv1 only since IKEv2 always uses
225 21 Andreas Steffen
     the configuration payload in *pull* mode. Cisco VPN gateways usually operate in *push* mode.
226 1 Martin Willi
227 21 Andreas Steffen
_pfs = *yes* | no_
228 31 Martin Willi
229 1 Martin Willi
p((. whether _Perfect Forward Secrecy_ of keys is desired on the connection's keying channel (with PFS,
230 1 Martin Willi
     penetration of the key-exchange protocol does not compromise keys negotiated earlier). IKEv2 always uses
231 23 Tobias Brunner
     PFS for IKE_SA rekeying whereas for CHILD_SA rekeying PFS is enforced by defining a Diffie-Hellman dhgroup
232 23 Tobias Brunner
     in the _esp_ parameter.
233 21 Andreas Steffen
234 20 Andreas Steffen
_pfsgroup = <modp group>_
235 31 Martin Willi
236 20 Andreas Steffen
p((. defines a Diffie-Hellman group for _perfect forward secrecy_ in IKEv1 Quick Mode differing from the DH group
237 23 Tobias Brunner
     used for IKEv1 Main Mode (IKEv1 pluto daemon only). 
238 23 Tobias Brunner
239 1 Martin Willi
_reauth = *yes* | no_
240 31 Martin Willi
241 1 Martin Willi
p((. whether rekeying of an IKE_SA should also reauthenticate the peer. In IKEv1, reauthentication is always done.
242 4 Martin Willi
     In  IKEv2, a value of *no* rekeys without uninstalling the IPsec SAs, a value of *yes* (the default)
243 23 Tobias Brunner
     creates a new IKE_SA from scratch and tries to recreate all IPsec SAs.
244 23 Tobias Brunner
245 1 Martin Willi
_rekey = *yes* | no_
246 31 Martin Willi
247 1 Martin Willi
p((. whether a connection should be renegotiated when it is about to expire. The two ends need not agree, but
248 1 Martin Willi
     while a value of no prevents Pluto/Charon from requesting renegotiation, it does not prevent responding
249 1 Martin Willi
     to renegotiation requested from the other end, so no will be largely ineffective unless both ends agree on it.
250 1 Martin Willi
251 1 Martin Willi
_rekeyfuzz = *100%* | <percentage>_
252 31 Martin Willi
253 26 Tobias Brunner
p((. maximum percentage by which _marginbytes_, _marginpackets_ and _margintime_ should be randomly increased to randomize
254 1 Martin Willi
     rekeying intervals (important for hosts with many connections); acceptable values are an integer, which may exceed 100,
255 26 Tobias Brunner
     followed  by  a '%' .
256 26 Tobias Brunner
     The value of _marginTYPE_, after this random increase, must not exceed _lifeTYPE_ (where TYPE is one of bytes, packets or type).
257 26 Tobias Brunner
     The value _0%_ will suppress randomization. Relevant only locally, other end need not agree on it.

268 21 Andreas Steffen
_type = *tunnel* | transport | transport_proxy | passthrough | drop | reject_
269 31 Martin Willi
270 21 Andreas Steffen
p((. the type of the connection; currently the accepted values are *tunnel*, signifying a  host-to-host,
271 21 Andreas Steffen
     host-to-subnet, or subnet-to-subnet tunnel; *transport*, signifying host-to-host transport mode;
272 21 Andreas Steffen
     *transport_proxy*, signifying the special Mobile IPv6 transport proxy mode;
273 23 Tobias Brunner
     *passthrough*, signifying that no IPsec processing should be done at all; *drop*, signifying that packets
274 20 Andreas Steffen
     should be  discarded; and *reject*, signifying that packets should be discarded and a diagnostic ICMP
275 23 Tobias Brunner
     returned. Charon currently supports only *tunnel*, transport, and transport_proxy connection types.

h2. left|right End Parameters
282 23 Tobias Brunner
283 27 Daniel Mentz
Connection descriptions are defined in terms of a left endpoint and a right endpoint. For example, the
284 27 Daniel Mentz
two parameters leftid and rightid specify the identity of the left and the right endpoint. For every
285 27 Daniel Mentz
connection description an attempt is made to figure out whether the local endpoint should act as the left or
286 27 Daniel Mentz
the right endpoint. This is done by matching the IP addresses defined for both endpoints with the
287 27 Daniel Mentz
IP addresses assigned to local network interfaces. If a match is found then the role (left or right) that
288 27 Daniel Mentz
matches is going to be considered "local". If no match is found during startup, "left" is considered "local".

296 29 Daniel Mentz
     fully-qualified domain name or an IP address will implicitly set _leftallowany=yes_. If the domain name
297 29 Daniel Mentz
     cannot be resolved into an IP address at IPsec startup or update time then _left=%any_ and _leftallowany=no_
298 29 Daniel Mentz
     will be assumed.

p((. In case of an IKEv2 connection, the value _%any_ for the local endpoint signifies an address to be filled in
301 32 Daniel Mentz
     (by automatic keying) during negotiation. If the local peer initiates the connection setup the routing table
302 32 Daniel Mentz
     will be queried to determine the correct local IP address. In case the local peer is responding to a connection
303 33 Tobias Brunner
     setup then any IP address that is assigned to a local interface will be accepted. Note that specifying _%any_
304 33 Tobias Brunner
     for the local endpoint is not supported by the IKEv1 pluto daemon.
305 27 Daniel Mentz
306 33 Tobias Brunner
p((. If _%any_ is used for the remote endpoint it literally means any IP address.
307 27 Daniel Mentz
308 33 Tobias Brunner
p((. Please note that with the usage of wildcards multiple connection descriptions might match a given incoming

_left|rightallowany = yes | *no*_
312 31 Martin Willi
313 21 Andreas Steffen
p((. a modifier for _left|right_, making it behave as _%any_ although a concrete IP address has been
314 21 Andreas Steffen
     assigned. Recommended for dynamic IP addresses that can be resolved by DynDNS at IPsec startup or update time.

_left|rightauth = <auth method>_
317 31 Martin Willi
318 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. Authentication method to use locally (left) or require from the remote (right) side. This parameter is 
319 23 Tobias Brunner
     supported in IKEv2 only. Acceptable values are *pubkey* for public key encryption (RSA/ECDSA), *psk*
320 21 Andreas Steffen
     for pre-shared key authentication, and *eap* to [require the] use of the Extensible Authentication Protocol.
321 20 Andreas Steffen
     In the case of *eap*, an optional EAP method can be appended. Currently defined methods are *eap-aka*,
322 20 Andreas Steffen
     *eap-sim*, *eap-gtc*, *eap-md5*, and *eap-mschapv2*.  Alternatively, IANA assigned EAP method
323 7 Martin Willi
     numbers are accepted. Vendor specific EAP methods are defined in the form *eap-type-vendor* (e.g.

328 1 Martin Willi
p((. Same as _left|rightauth_, but defines a second authentication exchange. IKEv2 supports multiple authentication
329 23 Tobias Brunner
     rounds using _Multiple Authentication Exchanges_ defined in "RFC 4739":
330 23 Tobias Brunner
     This allows e.g. a separate authentication of host and user (IKEv2 only).

341 7 Martin Willi
342 23 Tobias Brunner
_left|rightcert = <path>_
343 31 Martin Willi
344 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.
345 1 Martin Willi
     OpenPGP certificates are supported as well (IKEv1 only).  Both absolute paths or paths relative to
346 23 Tobias Brunner
     [[IpsecDirectoryCerts|/etc/ipsec.d/certs]] are accepted. By default _left|rightcert_ sets _left|rightid_
347 23 Tobias Brunner
     to the distinguished name of the certificate's subject and _left|rightca_ to the distinguished name of
348 21 Andreas Steffen
     the certificate's issuer. The _left|right_ participant's ID can be overridden by specifying a _left|rightid_
349 7 Martin Willi
     value which must be certified by the certificate, though.
350 21 Andreas Steffen
351 33 Tobias Brunner
_left|rightcert2 = <path>_

_left|rightfirewall = yes | *no*_
356 31 Martin Willi
357 7 Martin Willi
p((. whether the _left|right_ participant is doing forwarding-firewalling (including  masquerading)
358 1 Martin Willi
     using iptables for traffic from _left|rightsubnet_, which should be turned off for traffic to the
359 21 Andreas Steffen
     other subnet) once the connection is established. May not be used in the same connection description with
360 20 Andreas Steffen
     _left|rightupdown_. Implemented as a parameter to the default _ipsec _updown_ script. Relevant only
361 23 Tobias Brunner
     locally, other end need not agree on it.
362 20 Andreas Steffen
363 20 Andreas Steffen
p((. If one or  both security gateways are doing forwarding firewalling (possibly including masquerading),
364 23 Tobias Brunner
     and this is specified using the firewall parameters, tunnels  established with  IPsec  are exempted from
365 23 Tobias Brunner
     it so that packets can flow unchanged through the tunnels. (This means that all subnets connected in this
366 7 Martin Willi
     manner must have distinct, non-overlapping subnet address blocks.)  This is done by the default 
367 23 Tobias Brunner
     _ipsec _updown_ script (see pluto(8)).
368 23 Tobias Brunner
369 1 Martin Willi
p((. In situations calling for more control, it may be preferable for the user to supply his own updown script,
370 7 Martin Willi
     which makes the appropriate adjustments for his system.
371 23 Tobias Brunner
372 23 Tobias Brunner
_left|rightgroups = <group list>_
373 31 Martin Willi
374 1 Martin Willi
p((. a comma-separated list of group names. If the _left|rightgroups_ parameter is present then the peer must
375 7 Martin Willi
     be a member of at least one of the groups defined by the parameter. Group membership must be certified by a
376 1 Martin Willi
     valid attribute certificate stored in [[IpsecDirectoryAcerts|/etc/ipsec.d/acerts]] that has been issued
377 7 Martin Willi
     to the peer by a trusted Authorization Authority stored in [[IpsecDirectoryAacerts|/etc/ipsec.d/aacerts]].
378 23 Tobias Brunner
     Attribute certificates are not supported in IKEv2 yet.
379 1 Martin Willi
380 12 Martin Willi
_left|righthostaccess = yes | *no*_
381 1 Martin Willi
382 1 Martin Willi
p((. inserts a pair of INPUT and OUTPUT iptables rules using the default _ipsec _updown_ script,
383 1 Martin Willi
     thus allowing access to the host itself in the case where the host's internal interface is part
384 1 Martin Willi
     of the negotiated client subnet.

386 1 Martin Willi
_left|rightid = <id>_
387 31 Martin Willi
388 1 Martin Willi
p((. how the _left|right_ participant should be identified for authentication; defaults to _left|right_.
389 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).
390 23 Tobias Brunner
391 21 Andreas Steffen
_left|rightid2 = <id>_
392 8 Martin Willi
393 31 Martin Willi
p((. Identity to use for the second authentication of the left participant (IKEv2 only).

     Defaults to _left|rightid_.
395 23 Tobias Brunner
396 33 Tobias Brunner
_leftikeport = <port>_
397 33 Tobias Brunner
398 33 Tobias Brunner
p((. UDP port the left participant uses for IKE communication. Currently supported in IKEv2 connections only.
399 33 Tobias Brunner
     If unspecified, port 500 is used with the port floating to 4500 if a NAT is detected or MOBIKE is enabled.
400 33 Tobias Brunner
     Specifying a local IKE port different from the default additionally requires a socket implementation that
401 33 Tobias Brunner
     listens to this port.

403 7 Martin Willi
_left|rightnexthop = %direct | %defaultroute | <ip address> | <fqdn>_
404 23 Tobias Brunner
405 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. this parameter is usually not needed any more because the NETKEY IPsec stack does not require
406 21 Andreas Steffen
     explicit routing entries for the traffic to be tunneled. If _left|sourceip_ is used with IKEv1
407 1 Martin Willi
     then _left|rightnexthop_ must still be set in order for the source routes to work properly.
408 1 Martin Willi
409 23 Tobias Brunner
_left|rightprotoport = <protocol>/<port>_
410 31 Martin Willi
411 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. restrict the traffic selector to a single protocol and/or port. Examples: _leftprotoport=tcp/http_

414 23 Tobias Brunner
_left|rightrsasigkey = *%cert* | <raw rsa public key>_
415 31 Martin Willi
416 23 Tobias Brunner
p((. the left participant's public key for RSA signature authentication, in RFC 2537 format using ttodata(3)
417 1 Martin Willi
     encoding. The default value _%cert_ means that the key is extracted from a certificate.
418 1 Martin Willi
419 1 Martin Willi
_left|rightsendcert = never | no | *ifasked* | always | yes_
420 1 Martin Willi
421 1 Martin Willi
p((. Accepted values are *never* or *no*, *always* or *yes*, and *ifasked*, the latter meaning that 
422 1 Martin Willi
     the peer must send a certificate request (CR) payload in order to get a certificate in return.
423 1 Martin Willi
424 33 Tobias Brunner
_leftsourceip = %config | %cfg | %modeconfig | %modecfg | <ip address>_
425 7 Martin Willi
426 1 Martin Willi
p((. The internal source IP to use in a tunnel, also known as [[VirtualIp|virtual IP]].
427 31 Martin Willi
     If the value is one of the synonyms _%modeconfig, %modecfg, %config_, or _%cfg_, an address is
428 1 Martin Willi
     requested from the peer. In IKEv2, a statically defined address is also requested, since the server
429 23 Tobias Brunner
     may change it.
430 21 Andreas Steffen
431 1 Martin Willi
p((. If _leftsourceip=%config_ is set to request a [[VirtualIp|virtual IP]] from the peer then the
432 31 Martin Willi
     responder must define the address-to-be-assigned using a separate conn section with a _rightsourceip_
433 1 Martin Willi
     statement for each client.

435 33 Tobias Brunner
_rightsourceip = %config | <network>/<netmask> | %poolname_
436 33 Tobias Brunner
437 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
438 33 Tobias Brunner
     side, the initiator must propose an address which is then echoed back. Also supported are address pools
439 33 Tobias Brunner
     expressed as _<network>/<netmask>_ or the use of an external IP address pool using _%%poolname_ where
440 33 Tobias Brunner
     _poolname_ is the name of the IP address pool used for the lookup (see [[VirtualIp|virtual IP]] for details). 
441 23 Tobias Brunner
442 23 Tobias Brunner
_left|rightsubnet = <ip subnet>_
443 31 Martin Willi
444 21 Andreas Steffen
p((. private subnet behind the left participant, expressed as network/netmask (actually, any form acceptable to
445 1 Martin Willi
     ttosubnet(3)); if omitted, essentially assumed to be left/32, signifying that the _left|right_ end of the
446 23 Tobias Brunner
     connection goes to the _left|right_ participant only. When using IKEv2, the configured subnet of the peers
447 23 Tobias Brunner
     may differ, the  protocol  narrows  it  to  the greatest common subnet. Further, IKEv2 supports multiple
448 21 Andreas Steffen
     subnets separated by commas. IKEv1 only interprets the first subnet of such a definition. 
449 21 Andreas Steffen
450 1 Martin Willi
_left|rightsubnetwithin = <ip subnet>_
451 31 Martin Willi
452 1 Martin Willi
p((. the  peer can propose any subnet or single IP address that fits within the range defined by
453 1 Martin Willi
     _left|rightsubnetwithin_.  Not relevant for IKEv2, as subnets are narrowed.
454 1 Martin Willi
455 1 Martin Willi
_left|rightupdown = <path>_
456 31 Martin Willi
457 1 Martin Willi
p((. what _updown_ script to run to adjust routing and/or firewalling when the status of the connection
458 1 Martin Willi
     changes (default _ipsec _updown_). Relevant only locally, other end need not agree on it.
459 1 Martin Willi
     IKEv2 uses the _updown_ script to insert firewall rules only, since routing has been implemented directly
