FakeIKEd – Fake IKE Daemon Tool For MITM

Prevent Network Security Leaks with Acunetix

FakeIKEd, or fiked for short, is a fake IKE daemon supporting just enough of the standards and Cisco extensions to attack commonly found insecure Cisco PSK+XAUTH VPN setups in what could be described as a semi MitM attack. Fiked can impersonate a VPN gateway’s IKE responder in order to capture XAUTH login credentials; it doesn’t currently do the client part of full MitM.

Fiked is partially based on vpnc and uses libgcrypt and optionally libnet.

Fiked supports IKEv1 in aggressive mode, using pre-shared keys and XAUTH. Supported algorithms are DES, 3DES, AES-128, AES-192, AES-256; MD5, SHA1; and DH groups 1, 2 and 5. IKE main mode is not supported.

The Attack

Basically, if you know the pre-shared key, also known as shared secret or group password, you can play Man in the Middle, impersonate the VPN gateway in IKE phase 1, and learn XAUTH user credentials in phase 2.

This attack is not new. It has been known for a long time that IKE using PSK with XAUTH is insecure, and this is not the first actual implementation of the attack.

To successfully demonstrate an attack on a VPN site, you need to know the shared secret, and you must be able to intercept the IKE traffic between the clients and the VPN gateway.

There are several ways to find out the shared secret, including being a legitimate user, grabbing it from some Cisco config file, using ike-crack, or layer 8 hackery.

There are also several ways to redirect the IKE traffic to your running fiked instance, including ARP spoofing, 802.11 hostap, or layer 1 hackery.

Usage

See the README file and fiked(1) manpage for more details.

Fiked builds and runs on FreeBSD, OpenBSD and Linux, and probably other BSD variants too. MacOS X is reported not to work.
