In IKEv2, specifies whether the certificate sent by the IKE peer is verified using the Trusted Certificate Authorities, a CRL, and/or a peer certificate.
In IKEv1, specifies whether the identifier sent by the peer is verified with the credentials in the certificate, in the following manner - ASN1DN; specifies that the entire certificate subject name is compared with the identifier. Address, FQDN, or User FQDN; specifies that the certificate's subjectAltName is compared with the identifier. If the two do not match, the negotiation fails.
When creating a new IKE peer, if this value is not specified, and phase1_auth_method is rsa-signature, the default is no.
This parameter is invalid when phase1_auth_method is pre-shared-key.

Specifies the identifier type the local system uses to identify itself to the peer during IKE Phase 1 negotiations.
presented_id_value
string
Specifies a value for the identity when using a presented_id_type of override.
This is a required value when version includes (Cv2).
preshared_key
string
Specifies a string the IKE peers share for authenticating each other.
This parameter is only relevant when phase1_auth_method is pre-shared-key.
This parameter is invalid when phase1_auth_method is rsa-signature.
provider
dictionary
added in 1.0.0
A dict object containing connection details.
auth_provider
string
Configures the auth provider for to obtain authentication tokens from the remote device.
This option is really used when working with BIG-IQ devices.
no_f5_teem
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes
If yes, TEEM telemetry data is not sent to F5.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_TEEM.
password
string / required
The password for the user account used to connect to the BIG-IP.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_PASSWORD.

aliases: pass, pwd
server
string / required
The BIG-IP host.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_SERVER.
server_port
integer
Default:
443
The BIG-IP server port.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_SERVER_PORT.
timeout
integer
Specifies the timeout in seconds for communicating with the network device for either connecting or sending commands. If the timeout is exceeded before the operation is completed, the module will error.
transport
string
    Choices:
  • rest ←
Configures the transport connection to use when connecting to the remote device.
user
string / required
The username to connect to the BIG-IP with. This user must have administrative privileges on the device.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_USER.
validate_certs
boolean
    Choices:
  • no
  • yes ←
If no, SSL certificates are not validated. Use this only on personally controlled sites using self-signed certificates.
You may omit this option by setting the environment variable F5_VALIDATE_CERTS.
remote_address
string
Displays the IP address of the BIG-IP system that is remote to the system you are configuring.
state
string
    Choices:
  • present ←
  • absent
When present, ensures the resource exists.
When absent, ensures the resource is removed.
update_password
string
    Choices:
  • always ←
  • on_create
always will allow updating passwords if the user chooses to do so. on_create will only set the password for newly created IKE peers.
verified_id_type
string
    Choices:
  • address
  • asn1dn
  • fqdn
  • keyid-tag
  • user-fqdn
  • override
Specifies the identifier type that the local system uses to identify the peer during IKE Phase 1 negotiation.
This is a required value when version includes (Cv2).
When user-fqdn, value of verified_id_value must be in the form of User @ DNS domain string.
verified_id_value
string
Specifies a value for the identity when using a verified_id_type of override.
This is a required value when version includes (Cv2).
version
list / elements=string
    Choices:
  • v1
  • v2
Specifies which version of IKE is used.
If the system you are configuring is the IPsec initiator, and you select both versions, the system tries using IKEv2 for negotiation. If the remote peer does not support IKEv2, the IPsec tunnel fails. To use IKEv1 in this case, you must deselect Version 2 and try again.
If the system you are configuring is the IPsec responder, and you select both versions, the IPsec initiator system determines which IKE version to use.
When creating a new IKE peer, this value is required.

Notes

Note

  • For more information on using Ansible to manage F5 Networks devices see https://www.ansible.com/integrations/networks/f5.
  • Requires BIG-IP software version >= 12.
  • The F5 modules only manipulate the running configuration of the F5 product. To ensure that BIG-IP specific configuration persists to disk, be sure to include at least one task that uses the f5networks.f5_modules.bigip_config module to save the running configuration. Refer to the module’s documentation for the correct usage of the module to save your running configuration.
