Using IP Security Policy Management

You might need to be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to perform some tasks.

Internet Protocol security (IPSec) is a key line of defense against internal, private network, and external security attacks. IPSec uses cryptographic security services to provide data integrity, data authentication, data confidentiality, and replay protection for TCP/IP traffic. IPSec behavior is controlled using an IPSec policy that you configure and assign using the IP Security Policy Management snap-in

To install an IP Security Policy Management snap-in


Click Start, and then click Run.


In the Open box, type mmc, and then click OK.


On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in.


Click Add, and then double-click IP Security Policy Management.


Follow the instructions on your screen.


For information about using IPSec, in MMC, click Help on the Action menu.
