Hi All,


I need some clarification regarding the algorithms used in the setkey command.


IMS (Internet Multimedia Subsystems) specifies some algorithms that have to be used for enabling the Manually keyed IPSEC.

Below, I have mapped that algorithms with the one defined in the setkey manual.

Please let me know whether they are same.
