Data origin authentication is a guarantee that the message actually was sent by the apparent originator of the message and not by another user masquerading as the supposed message originator. • Replay protection (optional) is the assurance that the same message is not delivered multiple times and that messages are not delivered grossly out of order. This capability must be implemented by the sender; the receiver may optionally enable its use. 2 Security Associations and the Security Parameters Index Before two communicating entities can exchange secure communications, they need to agree on the nature of the security to be applied to those communications: which security headers (AH, ESP, or both) will be applied, the cryptographic algorithms to be used, the secret keys, and so forth.

Even if the packets safely traverse the Internet and arrive intact at their destination, the packets can be read by any of the intermediate nodes that forward the packet on its way. In particular, an attacker can exploit the source routing header option to divert a packet and route it past an evil, information-gathering router. The router can then restore the source routing header to its original form, and the tampering will not be noticed by the recipient. 13 Summary The AH provides several types of critical protection at the network layer.
