This section highlights information for existing customers about important new network security in this release.

IKE Version 2 (IKEv2) provides automatic key management for IPsec using the latest version of the IKE protocol. IKEv2 and IPsec use cryptographic algorithms from the Cryptographic Framework feature of Oracle Solaris.

Note - The Cryptographic Framework feature of Oracle Solaris is validated for FIPS 140-2, Level 1. For IKE's use of FIPS 140 mode, see Table 8–1. For hardware and software details, see Oracle FIPS 140 Software Validations.

IKE Version 1 (IKEv1) support is still available. For more information, see Chapter 8, About Internet Key Exchange.
