Phase 2 Settings




Proposal Parameters



Transform Algorithm


Select the cryptographic Transform Algorithm to be proposed during phase 2 negotiations. The default value for this setting is esp-3des ( or ESP Triple DES ).


Transform Key Length


Select the cryptographic Transform Algorithm Key Length to be proposed during phase 2 negotiations. Some algorithms use a fixed key length. If one of these Transforms are selected, this option will be grayed out. Other algorithms have a variable key length which will need to be defined. The default value for this setting is variable depending on the selected Transform Algorithm.


HMAC Algorithm


Select the HMAC Algorithm to be proposed during phase 2 negotiations. The default value for this setting is md5.


Compression Algorithm


No Compression Algorithms are currently supported. This setting should be grayed out.


PFS Exchange


Select the PFS DH Exchange group description to be proposed during phase 2 negotiations. When a remote gateway is configured to support the Configuration Transaction Exchange, it should be able to assign a valid DH Exchange group for PFS automatically. The default value for this setting is Auto.


Key Life Time Limit


Enter the Key Life Time Limit to be proposed during phase 2 negotiations. This setting will determine the life time of an IPsec SA. The default value for this setting is 3600 Seconds.


Key Life Data Limit


Enter the Key Life Data Limit to be proposed during phase 2 negotiations. This setting will determine the number of kilobytes that can be protected by an IPsec SA. If a 0 value is specified, no life data limit is negotiated. The default value for this setting is 0.


PLEASE NOTE: This setting is offered for IKE compatibility only. IPsec SA data limits are not currently enforced by the Shrew Soft VPN Client.
