I was intending to decrypt isakmp packets for ike version 1 using wireshark.
In wireshark it needs the Initiator cookie and encryption key to decrypt
the packets.

I have enabled debug logs by adding: enc = 3 in strongswan.conf file.
I followed this link

But this was used when strongswan used Pluto daemon but now Charon is being

So how to identify the initiator cookie and encryption key from logs for
ike version 1.
