Check the RFC4555 instead of RFC4306. With mobike all existing IPsec SAs do get updated with new outer addresses with UPDATE_SA_ADDRESSES, so it does not matter what the outer IP adresses were when the IPsec SA was created. Also it is normal operation to get packets in with different outer address to IKE SA when using MOBIKE. This happens for example when you start to do UPDATE_SA_ADDRESSES, but can happen also with any other IKEv2 packet. This is because other end might not be able to send UPDATE_SA_ADDRESSES because it first needs to finish other ongoing exchange on the IKEv2 SA in case the window size is only 1. -- kivinen@safenet-inc.com _______________________________________________ IPsec mailing list IPsec@ietf.org https://www1.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/ipsec
