NAME

       swanctl - strongSwan configuration, control and monitoring command line interface.

SYNOPSIS

       swanctl command [option ...]

       swanctl -h | --help

DESCRIPTION

       swanctl  is  a  cross-platform  command line utility to configure, control and monitor the
       strongSwan IKE daemon. It is a replacement for the aging starter, ipsec and stroke tools.

       swanctl uses a configuration file  called  swanctl.conf(5)  to  parse  configurations  and
       credentials.  Private  keys,  certificates and other PKI related credentials are read from
       specific directories.

       To communicate with the IKE daemon, swanctl uses the  VICI  protocol,  the  Versatile  IKE
       Configuration  Interface.  This  stable  interface  is  usable by other tools and is often
       preferable than scripting swanctl and parsing its output.
