IPSec Security Associations (SAs) The concept of a security association (SA) is fundamental to IPSec. An SA is a relationship between two or more entities that describes how the entities will use security services to communicate securely. IPSec provides many options for performing network encryption and authentication.
An IPsec SA is established using either Internet Key Exchange (IKE) or manual configuration. When using IKE, the security associations are established when needed and expire after a period of time or volume of traffic threshold. IPSec is defined by the IPSec working group of the IETF. It provides authentication, integrity, and data privacy between any two IP entities. Management of cryptographic keys and Security Associations can be either manual or dynamic using an IETF-defined key management protocol called Internet Key Exchange (IKE). IPsec Modes-Transport mode, Tunnel Mode. There are two IPsec modes viz. tunnel mode and transport mode as shown in the figure. • Tunnel mode: In this mode, entire IP packet is encrypted first. This will becomes data component of a new and large size IP packet. This mode is frequently used in IPsec VPN site to site topology.

This framework provides cryptographic security services at Layer 3, the Network layer of the OSI model. The following topics describe essential aspects of IPSec. † Understanding the IPSec Framework, page B-2 Mar 08, 2018 · The VPN gateway must enable anti-replay for all IPSec security associations. Replay attack is a type of injection attack when an IPSec packet is captured by an attacker and re-inserts it into the legitimate flow to disrupt service or create undesired behavior.

The IKE protocol manages the IPsec security associations within the ISAKMP of IPsec VPN peers. IKE is a protocol available to ISAKMP; but they are not the same thing. IKE is the mechanism that establishes the IPsec connection between IPsec peers. This article excerpt was adapted from IPsec protocol details for implementing VPNs, by Michael J Add services to IPSec VPNs, including voice and multicast Understand how network-based VPNs operate and how to integrate IPSec VPNs with MPLS VPNs Among the many functions that networking technologies permit is the ability for organizations to easily and securely communicate with branch offices, mobile users, telecommuters, and business partners.

The upper range value of the sa-id argument in the show crypto ipsec sa and clear crypto ipsec sa commands was increased from 16500 to 64500. Information was added about implementing IPSec in site-to-site and remote VPN topologies.
