Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 2 2004-197: ipsec-tools

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ipsec-tools package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2004-197 (ipsec-tools).

This is the IPsec-Tools package. You need this package in order to
really use the IPsec functionality in the linux-2.5+ kernels. This
package builds:

- libipsec, a PFKeyV2 library
- setkey, a program to directly manipulate policies and SAs
- racoon, an IKEv1 keying daemon

Update Information:

When configured to use X.509 certificates to authenticate remote
hosts, ipsec-tools versions 0.3.3 and earlier will attempt to verify
that host certificate, but will not abort the key exchange if the
verification fails.

Users of ipsec-tools should upgrade to this updated package which
contains a backported security patch and is not vulnerable to this
issue.
