Protecting Traffic With IPsec (Task Map)

The following task map points to procedures that set up IPsec between one or more systems. The ipsecconf(1M), ipseckey(1M), and ifconfig(1M) man pages also describe useful procedures in their respective Examples sections.

For Instructions
Secure traffic between two systems.
Protects packets from one system to another system.
Secure a web server by using IPsec policy.
Requires non-web traffic to use IPsec. Web clients are identified by particular ports, which bypass IPsec checks.
Display IPsec policies.
Displays the IPsec policies that are currently being enforced, in the order in which the policies are enforced.
Generate random numbers.
Generates random numbers for keying material for manually created security associations.
Create or replace security associations manually.
Provides the raw data for security associations:
  • IPsec algorithm name and keying material

  • The security parameter index (SPI)

  • IP source and destination addresses, and other parameters

Check that IPsec is protecting the packets.
Examines snoop output for specific headers that indicate how the IP datagrams are protected.
(Optional) Create a Network Security role.
Creates a role that can set up a secure network, but has fewer powers than superuser.
Manage IPsec and keying material as a set of SMF services.
Describes when and how to use the commands that enable, disable, refresh, and restart services. Also describes the commands that change the property values of services.
Set up a secure virtual private network (VPN).
Sets up IPsec between two systems that are across the Internet.
