IKE v2 Based VPN Establishment

telecom • networking • design

Learn how IKEv2 signaling is used to establish an IPSec VPN tunnel.

IKE performs mutual authentication between two parties and establishes an IKE security association (SA) that includes shared secret information that can be used to efficiently establish SAs for Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP) or Authentication Header (AH) and a set of cryptographic algorithms to be used by the SAs to protect the traffic that they carry.

An example of IKEv2 handshake and an IPSec tunnel transport is illustrated with the sequence diagram. You can click on IKE messages in the sequence diagram to see field level details.

The following sequence of Virtual Private Network (VPN) setup are covered:

  1. A ping triggers establishment of the IKEv2 security association.
  2. An IPSec tunnel is setup with a Child Security Association setup handshake.
  3. The ping data gets transported over the IPSec tunnel.

Hide.me Review

In this article, I am going to be reviewing one of the most popular VPN service providers today, hide.me or hide.me review. This service has been around for a few years now and privacy is definitely their main objective. They are based in Malaysia which means you don’t ever have to worry about them being forced to hand in evidence.

They have servers that can be accessed from anywhere in the world. That’s right, you can access their servers from South America, China, Europe and even the U.S. And once you connect, no one will be able to intercept your private data.

As far as speed is concerned, this service really is quite impressive. They have worked very hard on ensuring that their users get the same speed as others while not forfeiting any security features or privacy. This network is compatible with iOS, Android, Windows and Mac OS X which means that you can quickly switch between your mobile, computer and tablet without worrying about anything. It doesn’t work on Windows RT or Windows Phone though.

When it comes to logging, the main goal of a VPN like Hide.Me or IPVanish VPN provider is to ensure that this doesn’t happen at all. This is pretty much the main reason why they are based in Malaysia. There are no laws which allow the government to take any information from any VPN users. They have even committed that if the Malaysian government does ask for their drives at a later date, they will simply wipe them and present blank drives. Now that’s commitment to a cause won’t you say?

The privacy policy on hide.me stores only the most basic of data and this ensures that users are completely secure as well. In fact, you just need a valid email ID in order to sign up. Google Analytics is pretty much the only external service that will work on these servers and that too with very little private information being leaked. What’s more, names & credentials are regularly deleted as well as changed every few hours or so.

Now if you don’t like the services they are providing you, you could even stop using their services anytime within a 3 day period and get your full money back. You will have to have used less than 50 MB of data during this period though and the refund usually takes 10 days or so in order to be processed. They accept all major credit cards as well as bank transfers, PayPal and a plethora of other payment options. So if you are in the market for a good VPN service, look no further, hide.me is the answer for you.

Das Angebot von hide.me existiert schon was länger, darüber berichtet habe ich allerdings noch nicht – obwohl ich es schon seit geraumer Zeit nutze.

Hide.me bietet aktuell bis zu 20 VPN-Standorte in aller Welt an – über alle gängigen VPN-Protokolle. (PPTP, L2TP, IPsec und OpenVPN)
Zusätzlich ist auch ein SOCKS-Proxy verfügbar. Das macht hide.me zum richtigen Allrounder.

Anonymität

Bei hide.me werden keine IP-Adressen Adressen gespeichert. Das ist vorweg schonmal einer der wichtigsten Punkte. Viel wichtiger und interessanter ist aber auch die Tatsache das bei dem Anbieter die Zahlungsdaten nicht mit den Zugängen verknüpft werden. Somit sind Zahlungen mit allen gängigen Zahlungsanbietern möglich. Von der PaySafeCard bis Paypal ist also alles möglich und trotzdem anonym. Wer auf Nummer sicher gehen will kann auch uKash nutzen.

Geschwindigkeit

Im Premiumtarif, den ich persönlich bevorzuge (wegen der Portweiterleitung) sind Geschwindigkeiten über 150 MBit/s durchgehend möglich. Da ich selbst nur VDSL 50 habe, kann ich…
