RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

*Libreswan* now supports split-DNS configuration for IKEv2 This update of the _libreswan_ packages introduces support for split-DNS configuration for the Internet Key Exchange version 2 (IKEv2) protocol through the "leftmodecfgdns=" and "leftcfgdomains=" options. This enables the user to reconfigure a locally running DNS server with DNS forwarding for specific private domains.

Description Paul Wouters 2016-01-21 16:13:30 UTC
Description of problem:

Improved support for DNS configuration in IKEv2 which also supports DNSSEC.


Comment 2 Paul Wouters 2016-08-31 19:25:07 UTC
Here is a better description from the latest draft:

   This document defines two Configuration Payload Attribute Types for
   the IKEv2 protocol that define sets of private DNS domains which
   should be resolved by DNS servers reachable through an IPsec
   connection, while leaving all other DNS resolution unchanged.  The
   options define the set of DNS domains, DNS nameserver IP addresses
   and DNSSEC trust anchors to use for these DNS domains.  This approach
   of resolving a subset of domains using an IPSec connection is
   referred to as "split-DNS".  The information obtained via these
   attribute types can be used to reconfigure the local DNS resolution
   to use DNS forwarding for specific private domains.
