The strongSwan VPN suite uses the native IPsec stack in the standard
Linux kernel. It supports both the IKEv1 and IKEv2 protocols.
The systime-fix plugin for strongSwan is designed for embedded systems that
don't have a valid system time just after boot. It detects if the system time
is incorrect and disables certificate lifetime validation during this period.
This allows the device to establish tunnels, even if the system time is out of
sync, and for example connect to an NTP server.
Once the system time gets corrected, the plugin can detect it and verify the
lifetimes of all certificates used for active tunnels. If any certificate in
the trust-chain is not valid for the given system time, the tunnel gets either
closed or reestablished.
This plugin is now included in libstrongswan-extra-plugins. This package can
be safely removed once it's installed.
