Aggressive mode IKE

Post by karnos666 » Tue Oct 06, 2015 6:24 pm

Hello Everyone,

One of our vendors did security check on our network and gave us an issue about CVE-2002-1623: https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/deta ... -2002-1623

It looks like it's related to Aggressive mode IKE being enable.

Does anyone know how to fix it?

Sure.. use a different VPN protocol.

Is there any other way than changing the protocol?

IPSec initiator side selects the IKE mode.
If you don't want to use the aggressive mode, you can configure the VPN client so.

Please read the manual of the your client.

Has anyone answered this one? It's not a client issue.

A Nessus scan of the server reports "The remote Internet Key Exchange (IKE) version 1 service seems to support Aggressive Mode with Pre-Shared Key (PSK) authentication. Such a configuration could allow an attacker to capture and crack the PSK of a VPN gateway and gain unauthorised access to private networks."

Can anyone suggest a way to set Softether to use Main Mode instead of Aggressive Mode?
