Installing the IP security feature
The IP Security feature in AIX® is separately installable and loadable.
The file sets that must be installed are as follows:
- bos.net.ipsec.rte (The runtime environment for the kernel IP Security environment and commands)
- bos.msg.LANG.net.ipsec (where LANG is the specified language, such as en_US)
- clic.rte (CryptoLite for C, fileset for DES, triple DES and AES encryption)
gsk8capicmd -keydb -create -db <Keydb_name> -pw <password_for_kdb> -type cms -stash -v1 stash
After it is installed, IP Security can be separately loaded for IP Version 4 and IP Version 6, either by using the recommended procedure that is provided in Loading IP security or by using the mkdev command.
