NAME
     ike.preshared - pre-shared keys file for IKE

SYNOPSIS
     /etc/inet/secret/ike.preshared

DESCRIPTION
      The  /etc/inet/secret/ike.preshared  file  contains  secret
     keying  material that two IKE instances can use to authenti-
     cate each other. Because of the  sensitive  nature  of  this
     data, it is kept in the /etc/inet/secret directory, which is
     only accessible by root.

     Pre-shared keys are delimited by  open-curly-brace  ({)  and
     close-curly-brace  (}) characters. There are five name-value
     pairs required inside a pre-shared key:

     Name                 Value                  Example
     localidtype          IP                     localidtype IP
     remoteidtype         IP                     remoteidtype IP
     localid              IP-address             localid 10.1.1.2
     remoteid             IP-address             remoteid 10.1.1.3
     key                  hex-string             1234567890abcdef


     Comment lines with # appearing in the first column are  also
     legal.

     Files in this format can also be used by the ikeadm(1M) com-
     mand  to  load  additional pre-shared keys into a running an
     in.iked(1M) process.

EXAMPLES
     Example 1: A Sample ike.preshared File

     The following is an example of an ike.preshared file:


     #
     # Two pre-shared keys between myself, 10.1.1.2, and two remote
     # hosts.  Note that names are not allowed for IP addresses.
     #
     # A decent hex string can be obtained by performing:
     #           od -x </dev/random | head
     #

     {
          localidtype IP
          localid 10.1.1.2
          remoteidtype IP
          remoteid 10.21.12.4
          key 4b656265207761732068657265210c0a

     {

          localid 10.1.1.2
          remoteidtype IP
          remoteid 10.9.1.25

     }


SECURITY
      If this file is compromised, all  IPsec  security  associa-
     tions  derived from secrets in this file will be compromised
     as well. The default permissions on ike.preshared are  0600.
     They should stay this way.
