nm-setting-libreswan ā€” NetworkManager Libreswan plugin supported options

Description

NetworkManager is based on the concept of connection profiles made up of settings containing the network configuration (see nm-settings(5) for details). The data and secret keys belonging to the vpn setting take dictionaries of key/value pairs which depends on the specific VPN plugin. Here the list of the allowed key/value pairs for the NetworkManager Libreswan plugin.

vpn.data

Many key/value pairs in the vpn.data property are passed unchanged to the Libreswan service. The configuration is first validated by the NetworkManager plugin, which will also add some extra Libreswan parameters and defaults as needed. There are some key/value pairs used for the plugin configuration only, e.g., the flags used to manage the secrets needed by the connection. Here the full list of the allowed parameters:

right

contains the address of the remote VPN endpoint. Corresponds to the Libreswan parameter of the same name. Always Required.

rightid

specifies the remote identifier to be used during IKE negotiation. Corresponds to the Libreswan parameter of the same name.

rightrsasigkey

specifies the remote's public key for RSA authentication. When the 'leftcert' key is defined a default value of "%cert" is assumed.

left

contains the local address that should be used during IKE negotiation. If not specified, the value "%defaultroute" is assumed. Corresponds to the Libreswan parameter of the same name.

leftid

specifies the local identifier to be used during IKE negotiation. When this property is specified and the IKEv1 protocol is used the key exchange will be performed in aggressive mode. Corresponds to the Libreswan parameter of the same name.

leftrsasigkey

specifies the local public key for RSA authentication. The key should be already installed in the *swan NSS database. When the 'leftcert' key is defined a default value of "%cert" is assumed.

leftcert

this defines the certificate nickname of your certificate in the NSS database. The certificate should be already installed in the NSS database.

leftxauthusername

the username to be used during XAUTH authentication. If not specified, the current user will be implicitly assumed. Corresponds to the Libreswan parameter of the same name.

dhgroup

ignored.

pfsgroup

ignored.

dpdtimeout

ignored.

ike

allowed ciphers to be negotiatied to establish the IKE SAs. Corresponds to the Libreswan parameter of the same name. Default value depends on Libreswan but for IKEv1 aggressive negotiation: in that case the default is forced to 'aes256-sha1;modp1536'.

esp

allowed ciphers for establishing phase2 SAs. Matches the Libreswan parameter of the same name. Default value depends on Libreswan but for IKEv1 aggressive negotiation: in that case the default is forced to 'aes256-sha1'.

ikelifetime

how long the phase1 SA of a connection should last. Matches the Libreswan parameter of the same name. Default value is '24h'.

salifetime

how long the pashe2 SA of a connection should last. Matches the Libreswan parameter of the same name. Default value is '24h'.

vendor

when equals 'Cisco', the 'cisco-unity=yes' will be passed to Libreswan, to allow ending the CISCO_UNITY payload to the peer. The option is ignored otherwise.

rightsubnet

the destination subnet that should be reached throught the VPN. If omitted, will be filled with '0.0.0.0/0'. Matches the Libreswan parameter of the same name.

ikev2

use IKEv2 negotiation. Allowed values are: 'permit', 'no'/'never', 'yes'/'propose' and 'insist'. Matches the Libreswan parameter of the same name.

narrowing

only effective in IKEv2 negotiation. Allowed values are: 'yes' and 'no'. Matches the Libreswan parameter of the same name.

rekey

Allowed values are: 'yes' and 'no'. Defaults to 'yes'. Matches the Libreswan parameter of the same name.

fragmentation

Allowed values are: 'yes' and 'no'. Matches the Libreswan parameter of the same name.

mobike

Allowed values are: 'yes' and 'no'. Matches the Libreswan parameter of the same name.

pskinputmodes

where the 'pskvalue' can be retrieved. Used internally by the plugin. Allowed values are: 'unused', 'save', 'ask'.

xauthpasswordinputmodes

where the 'xauthpassword' can be retrieved. Used internally by the plugin. Allowed values are: 'unused', 'save', 'ask'.

pskvalue-flags

how to handle the 'pskvalue' secret. See the "Secret flag type" section at nm-settings(5) for details.

xauthpassword-flags

how to handle the 'xauthpassword' secret. See the "Secret flag type" section at nm-settings(5) for details.

vpn.secrets

The vpn.secrets property holds the secrets stored in the connection (if any). The allowed keys are:

pskvalue

if specified, its value is configured in the Libreswan secret file for the authentication of the connection.

xauthpassword

if specified, its value is provided to Libreswan during XAUTH authentication.
