When either deleting a peer in IKEv1 or updating it, this problem causes the v1 racoon daemon to crash with a SIGSEGV under some race conditions, intermittently.


If the problem occurs, the IKEv1 racoon daemon restarts and interrupts IPsec traffic.


This requires a peer using IKEv1, which gets updated or deleted while the IKEv1 racoon daemon is performing operations related to this peer.



Fix Information

The system now checks whether the old peer definition is valid when navigating from phase-one SAs to the IKEv1 peer definition.
