Description Marco Verleun 2005-04-05 11:08:00 UTC
Description of problem:
ifup-ipsec fails due to an invalid keylength error.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Reproducible by sourcing an config file, in my case .
/etc/sysconfig/networking-scripts/ifcfg-IPSec, and to evaluate the output of
every single line. Feeding this info into setkey -c results in an error message
invalid keylength.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.# . /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-IPSec
2.# echo ${KEY_ESP_IN:+add $DST $SRC esp $SPI_ESP_IN -E
${ESP_PROTO_IN:-$ESP_PROTO} $(echo '"')$KEY_ESP_IN$(echo '"');}
3.# setkey -c
add esp 0x201 -E 3des-cbc

Actual results:
400 192 192
line 1: Invalid key length at [0x7aeaca3f87d060a12f4a4487d5a5c3355920fae69a96c83

Expected results:
Silent acceptence of the command

Additional info:
Note the following does work:
1.# . /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-IPSec
2.# echo ${KEY_ESP_IN:+add $DST $SRC esp $SPI_ESP_IN -E
${ESP_PROTO_IN:-$ESP_PROTO} $(echo '"')$KEY_ESP_IN$(echo '"');}
3.# setkey -c
add esp 0x201 -E 3des-cbc

Just in case the difference between the two commands is not clear I would like
to mention that the working example doesn't have the surrounding quotes.
