The IKEv1 protocol amplification concern does not make it flawed in a way that would lead to a per-protocol > CVE ID assignment. Then you should pull the CVE-2016-5361 which deals with retransmission amplification in IKEv1 We are maintaining the > CVE-2016-5361 ID assignment for the upstream announcement of "libreswan 3.16 vulnerable to DDOS attack. Please upgrade to 3.17" That statement on the libreswan website is clearly referring to CVE-2016-3071 not CVE-2016-5361. and > accompanying upstream patch, as described in the http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2016/06/10/4 post. Which again clearly refers to CVE-2016-5361 and not CVE-2016-3071 So again, please fix CVE-2016-5361 or drop it. Paul
