Monitoring Quick Mode
To protect data, the Quick Mode Internet Key Exchange (IKE) negotiation establishes a secure channel between two computers. This phase involves the establishment of security associations (SAs) that are negotiated on behalf of the Internet Protocol security (IPsec) service. During Quick Mode, keying material is refreshed or, if necessary, new keys are generated. A protection suite that protects specific IP traffic is also selected. Quick Mode is not considered a complete exchange because it is dependent on a Main Mode exchange.
Monitoring Quick Mode SAs can provide information about which peers are currently connected to this computer, which protection suite was used to form the SA, and other information.
