Description Paul Moore 2007-12-04 11:08:02 EST
Description of problem:
Currently the netmask/prefix-length of an IPsec SPD entry is not included in 
any of the SPD related audit messages.  This can cause problems when the audit 
log is examined as the netmask/prefix-length is vital in determining what 
network traffic is affected by a particular SPD entry.  A patch has already 
been submitted and accepted upstream for the 2.6.25 kernel which addresses 
this issue:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new IPsec SPD entry using a network address, not a host address
2. Examine the audit log for the IPsec SPD entry
Actual results:
Missing netmask/prefix-length information

Expected results:
The SPD's netmask/prefix-length information is included in the audit record
