Define Cryptographic Profiles

A cryptographic profile specifies the ciphers used for authentication and/or encryption between two IKE peers, and the lifetime of the key. The time period between each renegotiation is known as the lifetime; when the specified time expires, the firewall renegotiates a new set of keys.
For securing communication across the VPN tunnel, the firewall requires IKE and IPSec cryptographic profiles for completing IKE phase 1 and phase 2 negotiations, respectively. The firewall includes a default IKE crypto profile and a default IPSec crypto profile that are ready for use.
