Windows Suite B Support with IKEv1

Windows Vista Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 support the Suite B cryptographic algorithms for IPsec defined by RFC 4869. For Windows configuration details see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949856/.

The following command sets the IKEv1 Main Mode algorithms:

netsh advfirewall set global mainmode mmsecmethods ecdhp256:aes128-sha256,ecdhp384:aes192-sha384,dhgroup14:aes128-sha1

The currently configured algorithms can be checked using the command:

netsh advfirewall show global

Main Mode:
KeyLifetime  480min,0sess
SecMethods   ECDHP256-AES128-SHA256,ECDHP384-AES192-SHA384,DHGroup14-AES128-SHA1
ForceDH      No

The following command sets the IKEv1 Quick Mode algorithms in the rule "VPN Suite B":

netsh advfirewall consec set rule name="VPN Suite B" new qmsecmethods=esp:aesgcm128-aesgcm128,esp:aesgcm192-aesgcm192,esp:aesgcm256-aesgcm256

The current rule settings are shown with the following command:

netsh advfirewall consec show rule name="VPN Suite B"

Ok.

On the strongSwan side the following entries are required in ipsec.conf for 128 bit security:

conn suiteB
     keyexchange=ikev1
     ike=aes128-sha256-ecp256!
     esp=aes128gcm16!
     pfs=no

and for 192 bit security:

conn ecp
     keyexchange=ikev1
     ike=aes192-sha384-ecp384!
     esp=aes192gcm16!
     pfs=no

Here the status output for 128 bit security:
