Fix Recommendation

Remove all unapproved tunnels from the system, or document them with the ISSO.

Check Contents

Verify the system does not have unauthorized IP tunnels configured.

Check to see if "libreswan" is installed with the following command:

# yum list installed libreswan
libreswan.x86-64 3.20-5.el7_4

If "libreswan" is installed, check to see if the "IPsec" service is active with the following command:

# systemctl status ipsec
ipsec.service - Internet Key Exchange (IKE) Protocol Daemon for IPsec
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/ipsec.service; disabled)
Active: inactive (dead)

If the "IPsec" service is active, check to see if any tunnels are configured in "/etc/ipsec.conf" and "/etc/ipsec.d/" with the following commands:

# grep -iw conn /etc/ipsec.conf /etc/ipsec.d/*.conf

If there are indications that a "conn" parameter is configured for a tunnel, ask the System Administrator if the tunnel is documented with the ISSO.

If "libreswan" is installed, "IPsec" is active, and an undocumented tunnel is active, this is a finding.
