QA Cafe ― Automate, validate, and deliver better broadband and connected devices


IKE, a component of CDRouter by QA Café.

CDRouter by QA Café.IKE

For security gateways that support VPN and IPSEC tunnelling, the CDRouter IKE module allows CDRouter to simulate hosts connecting through these IKE based features to ensure that your device’s VPN connections are secure and robust. CDRouter IKE can also be combined with CDRouter’s application tests from other modules to allow application traffic to run over VPN connections.

Key Features

  • Perform robustness testing and applications over VPN
  • Testing for rekeying to validate successful new key exchanges
  • Use CDRouter Core’s NAT tests over IKE based tunnels
  • Support for multiple tunnels
  • Verify known interoperability issues during Phase 1 and Phase 2 exchanges

CDRouter IKE Test Coverage

CDRouter IKE establishes IKE based VPN connections with the router under test by emulating VPN gateways and clients. Several automated functional test cases verify the behavior of the IKE protocol and verify that VPN connections are secure and robust. The CDRouter-IKE functionality can also be combined with CDRouter?s existing application tests to allow application traffic to run over VPN connections.

CDRouter IKE includes test cases for:

  • IKE Main Mode, Aggressive Mode, and Quick Mode
  • Encryption: DES, 3DES, AES-128, AES-196, AES-256
  • Authentication: SHA1, MD5
  • Diffie-Hellman Groups: 1, 2, 5, 14-18
  • Pre-shared key authentication
  • NAT-Traversal support and testing
  • Up to 4096 site-to-site tunnels
