This paper describes a tool for validating the proper configuration of the IPSEC protocol suite including IKE. The tool validates that two hosts are able to communicate (normal ping functionality) and that this communication is occurring using the proper authen- tication/encryption transformations as required by IPSEC. IPSEC configuration is very complex, and administrators are often unable to determine if a machine configuration is oring the desired protection. IPSEC and IKE operate in a manner transparent toIP applications; an administrator is therefore unable to check the proper operation of an IPSEC "security association" using traditional IP tools
