IPV6DOD: openswan should negotiate CCM algorithm.
Last modified: 2009-09-02 07:18:32 EDT
openswan's ikev2 daemon should negotiate CCM algorithm.
Contact Information = Joy Lattenemail@example.com
Machine Type = lpar
---Steps to Reproduce---
ikev2 is not aware of CCM algorithm. See rfc 4309
---Base System Tools Component Data---
Userspace tool common name: openswan ikev2
The userspace tool has the following bit modes: 32
Userspace rpm: openswan-2.6.09-1.el5.ppc.rpm

Add CCM support to Openswan
This lets me use CCM with openswan. As I tried to minimise the changes to
Openswan, the syntax is a bit awkward. You have to specify something like
esp=aes-ccm-a-152-null for it to work, where a/b/c means ICV lengths 8, 12 and
16, and 152 is the AES key length 128 plus a fixed 24 bits of nonce (and the
null needs to be there to prevent Openswan from sticking in an additional auth
Since I don't have anything else to test against it is only known to
interoperate with itself.
One hunk did not apply against 2.6.12. Please verify my merge with 2.6.14rc4
Paul, if you could let me know where 2.6.14rc4 is then I'll verify it :)
Oops. Uploaded now :)
Note that this release also has some fixes in kernel_netlink.c (from #testing
merge). If you have the time to go over those, that would be great too.
OK I've had a look:
1) What happened to ikev2= in the config file? The parser no longer understands it.
2) AEAD is mutually exclusive with enckeylen. So unless you've changed it to
not set enckeylen when AEAD is in use, the AEAD test in kernel_netlink's add_sa
needs to be before the enckeylen test and the latter needs to be in the else
clause (i.e., not AEAD).
I'll have a look at 1)
2) is indeed the failed hunk of your patch. I think you removed
for the else, but the diff did not show that, and I merged it in wrong.
I now changed it to:
aead = get_aead_alg(sa->enc(sa->encalg);
Oh I see. Did you apply my patch to support NULL encryption? That's the one
which removed the enckeylen check. Thanks!

Resync 14rc5 with my patches
This is the merge of all my patches for 12 for 14rc5. Note that I killed
AUTH_NULL because it's not meant to be included in the proposal. That is, the
absence of an integ transform is used to indicate NULL.
thanks. I just completed double checking my merge and found the problem of the
ikev2 keyword missing (and some other merge artifacts due to merging in #testing
with overlapip support). I will verify everything with your patch, and then put
out an 2.6.14rc6.
Thanks for your work Herbert!
It's available now:
The upload had been aborted partially.
This has now been fixed in the new uploaded version
Please use attached patch against rc6

SADB_EALG_MAX -> K_SADB_EALG_MAX fix
Added sadb_x_lifetime_packets to struct sadb_lifetime
2.6.14rc7-1 was built to address the bug being reported.

I verified ccm support in openswan-2.6.14rc10 from openswan.org between an i386
and ppc machine.

BTW, I wanted to document that the ESP Algorithm identifier line that I had to
use was a little different than what was reported earlier in the bug report. I
had to use:
as opposed to:
The only difference is a few '_' characters in place of some '-' characters
Sorry my bad. Yes only underscores can appear in the encryption part of the
