Status OK
Peter Nilsson


We have a system that uses Pseudo-Random Functions (PRFs) by default on all our IPsec tunnels and we cannot change this option to avoid it affecting all configured IPsec tunnels. Do Clavister support PRF in some way?


Yes, with the introduction of SHA-256 and SHA-512 in version 10.21 we also support PRF. Please note that only these two integrity algorithms support PRF.

Support for SHA-384 was added in version 13.00.01 and up. Now there are three integrity algorithms available that support PRF.
