Mogollon – 01/08 - 24 • A Security Association (SA) is a proposal for a set of IPsec encryption algorithms, authentication mechanisms, and key establishment algorithms to be used in IKE, as well as for ESP and/or AH. • IKE v2 is not bound to any specific cryptographic algorithm, key generation technique, or security mechanism; the independence from specific security mechanisms and algorithms provides a forward migration path to better mechanisms and algorithms. When improved security mechanisms are developed to counter new attacks against current encryption algorithms, authentication mechanisms and key exchanges are created, IKE v2 will allow the updating of the algorithms and mechanisms without having to develop a completely new IKE or patch the current one. • IKEv2 Algorithm Selection – • The following features are used by IKE and must be negotiated for the IPsec security association: • Encryption algorithm to protect data: Must implement 3DES and should implement AES-CBC128 and AES-CTR-128 modes. • Integrity protection algorithms to produce a fingerprint of the data: Must implement HMACSHA1-96, should implement AES-XCBC-96, and may implement HMAC-MD5-96. • Information about which Diffie-Hellman Modular Exponentiation Group (MODP) to use: Must implement D-H MODP Group 2 (discrete log 1024 bits), should support D-H Group 14 (2048), and may support D-H elliptic curves over GF [2155] and over GF [2185]. • Pseudorandom function to use: Must implement PRF-HMAC-SHA1 (RFC2104), should support PRF-AES-XCBC-PRF-128 (RFC 3664), and may implement PRF-HMAC-MD5 (RFC 2104). 24 VPN, IPSec a...
