Hi all,


GW1 ---------------------------- GW2( Strongswan)

I formed a tunnel between GW1 and GW2. After some time the Ipsec service is
stopped in GW1 and
its intimating Strongswan GW with delete payload message. Upon receiving
the message, strongswan
is deleting only SAD database but not SPD database. Because the SPD
database lingers in
Kernel , ping packets are getting dropped.

Is this an expected behavior?
Is there any RFC/Standard which talks about this?
