ISAKMP and IKE work together to establish secure connectivity between two devices. ISAKMP defines the message format, the mechanics for a key exchange protocol, and the negotiation process to build connections. ISAKMP, however (as already mentioned), doesn’t define how keys are created, shared, or managed for protecting the secure connections; IKE is responsible for this.
