Description Bill Nottingham 2008-01-18 17:43:20 EST
The deployment guide describes ipsec configuration using initscripts ifcfg files
and racoon. If we want to fully switch to openswan, we need to update the

This depends on how we decide to handle openswan configuration, though.

Marking as NEEDINFO=reporter for content sources if this is to added to the Security Guide.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2010-02-24 12:47:57 EST
Moving NEEDINFO to openswan maintainer. In any case, the ipsec-tools ifcfg file documentation needs removed, as that's not in RHEL 6.
Comment 6 Avesh Agarwal 2010-02-24 12:59:46 EST
ipsec-tools are not related to Openswan. So removing ipsec-tools documents should not affect Openswan. And yes if Openswan document is not there then, that should be included in RHEL6 deployment guide.
Comment 7 Douglas Silas 2010-02-27 19:16:02 EST
I have removed the entire section on IPsec interface configuration from the RHEL6 Deployment Guide. According to Bill: "there is no integration into initscripts or NetworkManager for openswan at this time." That being the case, the likely target for Openswan documentation at this point is the Security Guide (current component).

happy to write content into the documentation if I can get some advice of the
state of openswan, or some sort of outline/details of what should be covered. anyone?
Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 2010-04-15 09:45:12 EDT
Avesh - can you provide this info?
Comment 10 Avesh Agarwal 2010-04-15 09:59:13 EDT
Sure. I had prepared a document for GSS and QE training last month that I can send to Scott. This doc can be used as a starting point and if something is not clear, I am provide more info.
