ipsec policy shared

ipsec policy shared


The ipsec policy shared command configures a multi-link shared IPSec policy group.

The undo ipsec policy shared command cancels the configuration.

By default, no multi-link shared IPSec policy group is configured.


ipsec policy policy-name shared local-interface loopback interface-number

undo ipsec policy policy-name shared






Specifies the name of an IPSec policy. The IPSec policy must have been configured in the system view.

The value is a string of 1 to 15 case-sensitive characters without question marks (?) or spaces.


Specifies the loopback interface number. The loopback interface must have been created.

The value is an integer that ranges from 0 to 1023.

Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

To improve network reliability, the enterprise gateway often connects to the Internet Service Provider (ISP) through two egress links, which work in backup or load balancing mode. When two outbound interfaces are configured with IPSec policies with the same parameter settings, services need to be smoothly switched between the two links corresponding to the two outbound interfaces. The two outbound interfaces negotiate with their peers to establish IPSec SAs respectively. When one interface alternates between Up and Down states and an active/standby switchover occurs, the two peers need to perform IKE negotiate again to generate IPSec SAs. The IKE re-negotiation causes IPSec service interruption in a short time.

You can configure a multi-link shared IPSec policy group and use a loopback interface on the local device to establish an IPSec tunnel with the remote device. When an active/standby switchover occurs, IPSec services are not interrupted. The two IPSec-enabled physical interfaces share the same IPSec SA. When services are switched between links corresponding to the physical interfaces, the IPSec SA is not deleted as long as the loopback interface status remains unchanged. In addition, IKE re-negotiation is not required because the same IPSec SA is used to protect IPSec services.


One loopback interface maps to only one multi-link shared IPSec policy group.
