What are two benefits of using IKEv2 instead of IKEv1 when deploying remote-access IPsec VPNs? (Choose two.)
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D. E.
IKE (Internet Key Exchange) is a protocol used to establish a secure and authenticated connection between two devices over an untrusted network, such as the internet. It is commonly used in conjunction with IPsec (Internet Protocol Security) to provide VPN (Virtual Private Network) services.
IKEv1 and IKEv2 are two versions of the IKE protocol. IKEv2 is an improvement over IKEv1 and offers several advantages over its predecessor, particularly when deploying remote-access IPsec VPNs.
The two benefits of using IKEv2 instead of IKEv1 when deploying remote-access IPsec VPNs are as follows:
EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol) is an authentication framework that supports a variety of authentication methods, including passwords, certificates, smart cards, and biometrics. IKEv2 supports EAP authentication methods as part of the protocol, which means that users can be authenticated using a variety of methods when they connect to the VPN. This is particularly useful in environments where users may have different types of devices and may require different types of authentication.
NAT (Network Address Translation) is a technique used to allow multiple devices to share a single public IP address. However, NAT can cause problems for VPNs because it changes the source IP address of packets as they pass through the NAT device. IKEv2 inherently supports NAT traversal, which means that it can detect when NAT is being used and adjust its messages accordingly. This makes it easier to deploy remote-access VPNs in environments where NAT is being used.
The other options are incorrect for the following reasons:
C. IKEv1 and IKEv2 both use random message IDs to prevent replay attacks. D. Both IKEv1 and IKEv2 can establish the IKE SA and IPsec SA in six messages. However, IKEv2 is more efficient than IKEv1 because it can establish both SAs in a single round trip, whereas IKEv1 requires two round trips. E. Both IKEv1 and IKEv2 can encrypt their messages to provide confidentiality.
