ike 0.0.4

Minimalistic Internet Key Exchange protocol v2 (RFC 5996) library

Package Documentation

Latest Version: 0.1.0

The goal of this project is to be a minimalistic IKEv2 (RFC 5996) implementation in Python.


This project is in very, very early stages. The code is somewhat hideous mess of spaghetti and does not adhere to any standards required of a security software. Use at own risk. Or preferably, don’t use at all yet.

Design principles

  • Minimal amount of code.
  • Support MUST features of draft-kivinen-ipsecme-ikev2-rfc5996bis-02 (RFC 5996 successor)
  • Use strongest algorithms possible.
