IPSec provides end-to-end security for network communications—in the form of confidentiality, integrity, and authentication—using public-key technology to protect individual IP packets. Chapter 20 provides a description of this protocol. This section covers the MMC snap-in for IPSec configuration, IP Security Policy Management.
To add the IP Security Policy Management snap-in to the MMC, select Add/ Remove Snap-In from the Console menu. Click Add and select IP Security Policy Management from the list of available snap-ins. The dialog box that appears allows you to select the range of management: the local computer, the local computer’s domain, another domain, or another computer.
