NAME

       pf_key - shows pfkey messages emitted by the kernel

SYNOPSIS

       pf_key  --ah  --esp  --ipip  --ipcomp  --daemon  file hmac-md5-96|hmac-
       sha1-96

DESCRIPTION

       pf_key is a program to open a PF_KEY socket and print all messages that
       are  received  from  it.  With  no  options, it will register itself to
       receive  key  requests  for  AH,  ESP,   IPIP   and   IPCOMP   security
       associations.  If given more specific options, then it will listen only
       to those protocols which are listed.

       If the messages are recognized, the messages will be decoded.

       If the option --daemon is provided, then after doing the registrations,
       the  program  will  fork into the background. The provided file will be
       opened and the process ID of the background process will be written  to
       it.  This  option  is  present to present race conditions in regression
       testing.

EXAMPLES

       FILES  /proc/net/pf_key
