15-Day Money-Back Guarantee
IKEv2, Internet Key Exchange version 2, is a tunneling protocol that was developed by the joint efforts of Cisco and Microsoft. Just like L2TP, IKEv2 is usually combined with an authentication protocol such as IPSec to provide encryption.
IKEv2 is used with Microsoft VPN Connect. The protocol immediately re-establishes the connection with the VPN in the event of a connection drop. The protocol supports EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol) authentication, digital signatures as well as pre-shared keys.
The biggest advantage that gives IKEv2 an edge over other protocols is the balance of speed and security it offers. More importantly, since IKEv2 supports the MOBIKE protocol, the technology can easily adapt to any network such as at home or a public Wi-Fi connection.
The IKEv2 uses the port 4500. Moreover, it is also compatible with the latest algorithms of IPSec encryption.
Support for the Mobility and Multihoming Protocol makes IKEv2 highly resilient and stable.
The protocol offers good compatibility with various operating systems and devices such as Windows, Linux, routers, Blackberry, etc.
AES 256-bit encryption for data and SHA256 for control messages.
