ICSA Labs' IPSec 1.1 testing criteria represent the most thorough and stringent certification process to date. The certification process requires that the product meets all Version 1.0b criteria that include support for ESP-NULL, mismatched SA lifetimes, IP fragmentation handling and replay protection. In addition, the product must also meet requirements for certificate based VPNs supporting certificate request, retrieval and revocation. The certification process requires that products accomplish secure certificate enrollment and loading using PKCS#10/7, SCEP, or CMP. Certificate revocation list retrieval via LDAP or HTTP, and proper peer certificate validation. The criteria also require products to employ strong 3DES encryption SHA-1 authentication algorithm and Perfect Forward Secrecy. Other companies with the certified IPSec products are Netscreen Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: NSCN), Nortel Networks (NYSE/TSX: NT) and Secure Computing Corporation (Nasdaq: SCUR).
