key exchange - Computer Definition
The protocol used to set up a security association in the Internet Protocol
Security (IPSec) protocol
suite. Although IPSec, or IKE (Internet Key Exchange), is an optional part of
the IPv4 standard, it is a
mandatory part of the new IETF IPv6 standard, which is soon to be
adopted throughout the Internet.
The IKE command can perform several functions, including
activating, removing, or listing IKE and IP Security tunnels. IKE uses a Diffie-Hellman key exchange to set up a
shared secret from which cryptographic keys are derived in a partial
implementation of the so-called Oakley protocol. Public key techniques or
pre-shared secrets are used to authenticate communicating parties.
