Security Associations Database for IPsec

Information on key material for IPsec security services is maintained in a security associations database (SADB). Security associations (SAs) protect inbound packets and outbound packets. The SADBs are maintained by a user process, or possibly multiple cooperating processes, that send messages over a special kind of socket. This method of maintaining SADBs is analogous to the method that is described in the route(7P) man page. Only the root role can access the database.

The in.iked daemon and the ipseckey command use the PF_KEY socket interface to maintain SADBs. For more information on how SADBs handle requests and messages, see the pf_key(7P) man page.
