Monitoring Main Mode
Main Mode negotiation establishes a secure channel between two computers by determining a set of cryptographic protection suites, exchanging keying material to establish the shared secret key, and authenticating computer identities. You can monitor Main Mode security associations (SAs) for information such as which peers are currently connected to this computer and which protection suite was used to form the SA.
