This section covers the implementation of IKEv2. For IKEv1 information, see IKEv1 Protocol. For a comparison, see Comparison of IKEv2 and IKEv1. For information that applies to both protocols, see Introduction to IKE. Oracle Solaris supports both versions of the IKE protocol simultaneously.
The IKEv2 daemon, in.ikev2d, negotiates and authenticates keying material for IPsec SAs. See the in.ikev2d (1M) man page.
