Description

The ASN1DN field on the "peers_identifier" option within racoon.conf can be used to specify which certificate or set of certificates should be allowed to connect. Anyway, for this to take effect, there's an additional option required on the racoon.conf file:

verify_identifier on;

The default value for this is off. I guess this can be set to always on without harm, and increased security. If the ASN1DN values are left blank, they will be taken and verified from the certificates themselves. If you specify an ASN1DN manually, it will be used for verification.

In case I am missing something else that might break by adding this as a default option, a checkbox to enable it will be great.

Check my post about the topic and the racoon.conf man page for more info.

Thanks!
