I have a very basic question regarding the IPSec and IKE in the VPN. I would appreciate that instead of giving me links if you could describe me in a very simple manner.
I understand that IKE provides a secure channel to negotiate with the peers and creates a SA based on the policies that are decided by the peers.
Can you please tell me how does the Phase 1 SA differ from the Phase 2 SA.
Thanks for the help
You got the answer from Kanishka. :-)
Talking of the phase 2 lifetime, even if it is not the same on both the ends, the tunnel might come up but we expect problems at the time of tunnel renegotiation.
Please do rate if it helps.
