This security is made possible by cryptographic keys and operations on both devices. .\" .Nm relies on a standardized network protocol (IKE) to automatically negotiate and manage the cryptographic keys (e.g. security associations) that are necessary for the IPSec tunnel or transport channel to function. .\" .Nm speaks the IKE .Pq ISAKMP/Oakley key management protocol, to establish security associations with other hosts. The SPD .Pq Security Policy Database in the kernel usually triggers .Nm . .Nm usually sends all informational messages, warnings and error messages to .Xr syslogd 8 with the facility .Dv LOG_DAEMON and the priority .Dv LOG_INFO . Debugging messages are sent with the priority .Dv LOG_DEBUG . You should configure .Xr syslog.conf 5 appropriately to see these messages. .Bl -tag -width Ds .It Fl 4 .It Fl 6 Specify the default address family for the sockets. .It Fl B Install SA(s) from the file which is specified in .Xr racoon.conf 5 . .It Fl d Increase the debug level. Multiple .Fl d arguments will increase the debug level even more. .It Fl F Run .Nm in the foreground. .It Fl f Ar configfile Use .Ar configfile as the configuration file instead of the default. .It Fl L Include .Ar file_name:line_number:function_name in all messages. .It Fl l Ar logfile Use .Ar logfile as the logging file instead of .Xr syslogd 8 . .It Fl v This flag causes the packet dump be more verbose, with higher debugging level. .El .Pp .Nm assumes the presence of the kernel random number device .Xr rnd 4 at .Pa /dev/urandom . .\" .Sh RETURN VALUES The command exits with 0 on success, and non-zero on errors. .\" .Sh FILES .Bl -tag -width /private/etc/racoon/remote/anonymous -compact .It Pa /private/etc/racoon/racoon.conf default configuration file. .It Pa /private/etc/racoon/psk.txt default pre-shared key file. .El .\" .Sh SEE ALSO .Xr ipsec 4 , .Xr racoon.conf 5 , .Xr syslog.conf 5 , .Xr setkey 8 , .Xr syslogd 8 .\" .Sh HISTORY The .Nm command first appeared in the .Dq YIPS Yokogawa IPsec implementation. .\" .Sh SECURITY CONSIDERATIONS The use of IKE phase 1 aggressive mode is not recommended, as described in .Pa http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/886601 .
