ProcedureHow to Configure IKE to Find the Sun Crypto Accelerator 1000 Board

Before You Begin

The following procedure assumes that a Sun Crypto Accelerator 1000 board is attached to the system. The procedure also assumes that the software for the board has been installed and that the software has been configured. For instructions, see the Sun Crypto Accelerator 1000 Board Version 2.0 Installation and User’s Guide.

  1. On the system console, assume the Primary Administrator role or become superuser.

    The Primary Administrator role includes the Primary Administrator profile. To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Chapter 2, Working With the Solaris Management Console (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

    Note –

    Logging in remotely exposes security-critical traffic to eavesdropping. Even if you somehow protect the remote login, the security of the system is reduced to the security of the remote login session. Use the ssh command for secure remote login.

  2. Check that the PKCS #11 library is linked.

    Type the following command to determine whether a PKCS #11 library is linked:

    # ikeadm get stats
    Phase 1 SA counts:
    Current:   initiator:          0   responder:          0
    Total:     initiator:          0   responder:          0
    Attempted: initiator:          0   responder:          0
    Failed:    initiator:          0   responder:          0
               initiator fails include 0 time-out(s)
    PKCS#11 library linked in from /usr/lib/
  3. Solaris 10 1/06: Starting in this release, you can store keys in the softtoken keystore.

    For information on the keystore that is provided by the Solaris cryptographic framework, see the cryptoadm(1M) man page. For an example of using the keystore, see Example 23–12.
