Opened: Apr 04, 2018
Severity: 5-Cosmetic


Sometimes the IKEv1 racoon daemon logs a 32-bit child-SA spi with octets in backwards order (reversing the endianness).


Logging typically shows a network byte order spi in the wrong order. Cosmetic interference with logging interpretation.


When an SA is deleted.


There is no workaround at this time.

Fix Information

The spi values are shown in the correct endianness now.
