the latest IKEv2 development release which can be downloaded from


offers the following new features:

- Added support for the auto=route ipsec.conf parameter and the
   ipsec route/unroute commands for IKEv2. This allows to set up
   IKE_SAs and CHILD_SAs dynamically on demand when traffic is
   detected by the kernel.

- Added support for rekeying IKE_SAs in IKEv2 using the ikelifetime
   parameter. As specified in the IKEv2 RFC, no reauthentication is
   done (unlike in IKEv1), only new keys are generated using perfect
   forward secrecy. An optional flag which enforces re-authentication
   will be implemented in a later release.

Best regards

Martin Willi and Andreas Steffen
