#203 closed defect (fixed)

Failover counter: textual changes

Reported by: yaronf@… Owned by: RSJenwar@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: ipsecha-protocol Severity: Active WG Document
Keywords: Cc:


  • Clarify the paragraph in Sec. 5 that begins "The initiator of the IKEv2 Message ID synchronization request". The first sentence refers to the failover counter, and it is unclear that the guidance on handling the counters in the rest of the paragraph only applies to the Message ID counters and not to the failover counter.
  • Last sentence of the first paragraph of Sec. 7: clarify that such messages MUST be discarded (not just logged). Also clarify what you mean by "invalid failover counter" (I think there's no need for a window - if the value is smaller than or equal to the last value seen, drop the message, otherwise accept it.
  • Sec. 9, first bullet, "it can safely discard" - it MUST discard the message, and this is unconditional (i.e. the last part of the sentence should be removed).
