Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

An IPSec profile is similar to an IPSec policy. The differences are as follows: The IPSec profile is identified by its name. The IPSec profile can be configured only in IKE negotiation mode. The IPSec profile does not support ACL configuration. The IPSec profile can be applied to only an IPSec tunnel interface. An IPSec profile defines IPSec proposals used to protect data flows, IKE negotiation parameters for SA setup, SA lifetime, and PFS status. After an IPSec profile is applied to an IPSec tunnel interface, only one IPSec tunnel is created. The IPSec tunnel protects all the data flows routed to the IPSec tunnel interface, simplifying IPSec policy management.

Follow-up Procedure

Define negotiated IPSec parameters in the IPSec profile view and run the ipsec profile (interface view) command to apply the IPSec profile to an interface.


You do not need to specify local-address or remote-address for an IKE peer referenced by an IPSec profile. During IKE negotiation, the IPSec profile uses the source and destination addresses of the IPSec tunnel interface.
