Dear IPsec forks,
May I get advice about the differnce between them:
1) IPv4 doesn't mandate the support IPsec, IPv6 also doesn't mandate
it based on RFC?
2) Most IPv4 hosts have(Linux, BSD, Windows) by default implemented IPsec(IKE), but don't launch it, need more configuration?
Most IPv6 hosts haven't by default implemented IPsec(IKE), it need
further download and configuration?
3) IPv4 IPsec need traversal NAT, but IPv6 don't need it, so it could support more about end to end other than site to site. 4) IPv6 IPsec support is based on extension header which is different from IPv4, it may more closer to the kernal level implementation.
thanks for the discussion.
