NDIS_IPSEC_OFFLOAD_V2_HEADER_NET_BUFFER_LIST_INFO structure

[The IPsec Task Offload feature is deprecated and should not be used.]

The NDIS_IPSEC_OFFLOAD_V2_HEADER_NET_BUFFER_LIST_INFO structure specifies IPsec header information in the OOB data of a NET_BUFFER_LIST structure.

Syntax

typedef struct _NDIS_IPSEC_OFFLOAD_V2_HEADER_NET_BUFFER_LIST_INFO {
  union {
    struct {
      ULONG NextHeader : 8;
      ULONG PadLength : 8;
      ULONG AhHeaderOffset : 8;
      ULONG EspHeaderOffset : 8;
    } Transmit;
    struct {
      ULONG NextHeader : 8;
      ULONG PadLength : 8;
      ULONG HeaderInfoSet : 1;
    } Receive;
  };
  union {
    struct {
      ULONG NextHeader : 8;
      ULONG PadLength : 8;
      ULONG AhHeaderOffset : 8;
      ULONG EspHeaderOffset : 8;
    } Transmit;
    struct {
      ULONG NextHeader : 8;
      ULONG PadLength : 8;
      ULONG HeaderInfoSet : 1;
    } Receive;
  };
} NDIS_IPSEC_OFFLOAD_V2_HEADER_NET_BUFFER_LIST_INFO, *PNDIS_IPSEC_OFFLOAD_V2_HEADER_NET_BUFFER_LIST_INFO;

Members

Transmit

Transmit.NextHeader

The next header value that is carried in the ESP trailer.

Transmit.PadLength

The amount of padding, in bytes, that is added to the end of the payload for ESP only. PadLength is specified for IPsec offload packets with and without large send offload (LSO).

Transmit.AhHeaderOffset

The offset count from the beginning of the IP header to the AH header. The AhHeaderOffset value is this offset, in bytes, divided by 4 to reduce the number of bits that are required to represent the offset. Note that the AH header is, at minimum, aligned on 4-byte boundaries.

Transmit.EspHeaderOffset

The offset count from the beginning of the IP header to the ESP header. The EspHeaderOffset value is this offset, in bytes, divided by 4 to reduce the number of bits that are required to represent the offset. Note that the ESP header is, at minimum, aligned on 4-byte boundaries.

Receive

Receive.NextHeader

The next header value that is carried in the ESP trailer.

Receive.PadLength

The amount of padding, in bytes, that is added to the end of the payload for ESP only. PadLength is specified for IPsec offload packets with and without large send offload (LSO).

Receive.HeaderInfoSet

A ULONG value that, when set, indicates the members of the Receive structure are valid. If this member is not set, the Receive structure is ignored.

Transmit

Transmit.NextHeader

The next header value that is carried in the ESP trailer.

Transmit.PadLength

The amount of padding, in bytes, that is added to the end of the payload for ESP only. PadLength is specified for IPsec offload packets with and without large send offload (LSO).

Transmit.AhHeaderOffset

The offset count from the beginning of the IP header to the AH header. The AhHeaderOffset value is this offset, in bytes, divided by 4 to reduce the number of bits that are required to represent the offset. Note that the AH header is, at minimum, aligned on 4-byte boundaries.

Transmit.EspHeaderOffset

The offset count from the beginning of the IP header to the ESP header. The EspHeaderOffset value is this offset, in bytes, divided by 4 to reduce the number of bits that are required to represent the offset. Note that the ESP header is, at minimum, aligned on 4-byte boundaries.

Receive

Receive.NextHeader

The next header value that is carried in the ESP trailer.

Receive.PadLength

The amount of padding, in bytes, that is added to the end of the payload for ESP only. PadLength is specified for IPsec offload packets with and without large send offload (LSO).

Receive.HeaderInfoSet

A ULONG value that, when set, indicates the members of the Receive structure are valid. If this member is not set, the Receive structure is ignored.

Remarks

The information in the NDIS_IPSEC_OFFLOAD_V2_HEADER_NET_BUFFER_LIST_INFO structure makes it easy for the miniport driver to parse an outbound packet. NDIS_IPSEC_OFFLOAD_V2_HEADER_NET_BUFFER_LIST_INFO specifies the header offsets for IPsec headers in the NET_BUFFER_LIST structure as well as the location of the next header and the padding length.

To set and get the IPsec tunnel information, use the IPsecOffloadV2HeaderNetBufferListInfo index with the NET_BUFFER_LIST_INFO macro. NET_BUFFER_LIST_INFO returns an NDIS_IPSEC_OFFLOAD_V2_HEADER_NET_BUFFER_LIST_INFO structure.
