ipsec

ipsec is actually an umbrella command comprising a collection of individual sub commands of the form

ipsec <command> [ <argument> ] [ <options> ]

that can be used to control and monitor IPsec connections as well as the IKE daemons.

Control Commands

ipsec start [ <starter options> ]
p((. calls ipsec starter [ <starter options> ]] which in turn parses ipsec.conf and starts the IKEv1 pluto and IKEv2 charon daemons.

ipsec stop
p((. terminates all IPsec connection and stops the IKEv1 pluto and IKEv2 charon daemons by sending a TERM signal to ipsec starter.

ipsec restart [ <starter options> ]
p((. is equivalent to ipsec stop followed by ipsec start [ <starter options> ] after a guard period of 2 seconds.

ipsec update
p((. sends a HUP signal to ipsec starter which in turn determines any changes in ipsec.conf and updates the configuration on the running IKEv1 pluto and IKEv2 charon daemons, correspondingly.

ipsec reload
p((. sends a USR1 signal to ipsec starter which in turn reloads the whole configuration on the running IKEv1 pluto and IKEv2 charon daemons based on the actual ipsec.conf.

ipsec up <name>
p((. tells the responsible IKE daemon to start up connection <name>. Implemented by calling the ipsec whack --name <name> --initiate and/or ipsec stroke up <name> commands.

ipsec down <name>
p((. tells the responsible IKE daemon to terminate connection <name>. Implemented by calling the ipsec whack --name <name> --terminate and/or ipsec stroke down <name> commands.

ipsec route <name>
p((. tells the responsible IKE daemon to insert an IPsec policy in the kernel for connection <name>. The first payload packet matching the IPsec policy will automatically trigger an IKE connection setup. Implemented by calling the ipsec whack --name <name> --route and/or ipsec stroke route <name> commands.

ipsec unroute <name>
p((. remove the IPsec policy in the kernel for connection <name>. Implemented by calling the ipsec whack --name <name> --unroute and/or ipsec stroke unroute <name> commands.

ipsec status [ <name> ]
p((. returns concise status information either on connection <name> or if the argument is lacking, on all connections. Implemented by calling the ipsec whack [ --name <name> ] --status and/or ipsec stroke status [ <name> ] commands.

ipsec statusall [ <name> ]
p((. returns detailed status information either on connection <name> or if the argument is lacking, on all connections. Implemented by calling the ipsec whack [ --name <name> ] statusall and/or ipsec stroke statusall [ <name> ] commands.

Info Commands

ipsec version
p((. returns the ipsec version in the form of Linux strongSwan U<strongSwan userland version>/K<Linux kernel version> if strongSwan uses the native NETKEY IPsec stack of the Linux kernel it is running on.

ipsec copyright
p((. returns the copyright information.

ipsec --confdir
p((. returns the SYSCONFDIR directory as defined by the configure options.

ipsec --directory
p((. returns the LIBEXECDIR directory as defined by the configure options.

ipsec --help
p((. returns the usage information for the ipsec command.

ipsec --versioncode
p((. returns the ipsec version number in the form of U<strongSwan userland version>/K<Linux kernel version> if strongSwan uses the native NETKEY IPsec stack of the Linux kernel it is running on.

List Commands

ipsec listaacerts [ --utc ]
p((. returns a list of X.509 Authorization Authority (AA) certificates that were loaded locally by the IKE daemon from the /etc/ipsec.d/aacerts directory. Implemented by calling the ipsec whack --listaacerts and/or ipsec stroke listaacerts commands.

ipsec listacerts [ --utc ]
p((. returns a list of X.509 Attribute certificates that were loaded locally by the IKE daemon from the /etc/ipsec.d/acerts directory. Implemented by calling the [[IpsecWhack|ipsec whack] --listacerts andor [wikiIpsecStroke ipsec stroke]] listacerts commands.

ipsec listalgs
p((. returns a list of all supported IKE encryption and hash algorithms, the available Diffie-Hellman groups, as well as all ESP encryption and authentication algorithms registered via the Linux kernel's Crypto API. Supported by the IKEv1 pluto daemon only. Implemented by calling the ipsec whack --listalgs command.

ipsec listcacerts [ --utc ]
p((. returns a list of X.509 Certification Authority (CA) certificates that were loaded locally by the IKE daemon from the /etc/ipsec.d/cacerts directory or received in PKCS#7-wrapped certificate payloads via the IKE protocol. Implemented by calling the ipsec whack --listcacerts and/or ipsec stroke listcacerts commands.

ipsec listcainfos [ --utc ]
p((. returns Certification Authority information (CRL distribution points, OCSP URIs, LDAP servers) that were defined by ca sections in ipsec.conf. Implemented by calling the ipsec whack --listcainfos and/or ipsec stroke listcainfos commands.

ipsec listcards [ --utc ]
p((. lists all certificates found on attached smart cards. Supported by the IKEv1 pluto daemon only. Implemented by calling the ipsec whack --listcards command.

ipsec listcrls [ --utc ]
p((. returns a list of Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs) that were either loaded by the IKE daemon from the etcipsecdcrls directory or fetched from an HTTP- or LDAP-based CRL distribution point. Implemented by calling the ipsec whack --listcrls and/or ipsec stroke listcrls commands.

ipsec listcerts [ --utc ]
p((. returns a list of X.509 and/or OpenPGP certificates that were either loaded locally by the IKE daemon or received via the IKEv2 protocol. Implemented by calling the ipsec whack --listcerts and/or ipsec stroke listcerts commands.
