VPN: IKE V2 Support
IKE V2 is the newest innovation to IPSec and makes using of mobile clients a lot easier. I wish to integrate IKE V2 as soon as possible.
See: http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4306 (RFC 4306)

I'd heard some rumors that this was being considered for 9.8 ... but frankly, we are already looking into moving to a different vendor. I can't plan customer deployments based on hope and rumors.
You're more likely to convert to using WireGuard VPN (https://www.wireguard.com/) than Sophos doing anything meaningful here. WireGuard is an excellent direction to explore in. It was recently merged into the Linux codebase.
Is there any chance to get it before 2029?
You have had 10 years to act on this request. Are you going to add support in UTM for IKEv2 or not?
We are in the infancy stages of building a public cloud/hybrid based solution and found out that our UTM front-end makes things a non-starter until this feature gets added. After 10 years from the original request , I am joining in the choir in saying that we will eventually be forced off the UTM platform if this feature isn't added.
Come on.... UTM 9.700 is out and nothing changed for IKEv2
Did you know that a VPN tunnel to Azure need the IKEv2?
I get the impression that, though they're still selling UTM products, there's no actual UTM support.
10 years and they can't implement a standard security feature..?! instead they just buy another company's device, slap their logo on it, and expect us "sheep" to blindly upgrade to get the features we need?? Like many others on this page, I will actively push all my clients away from sophos. This is not the way a company should do business.
I too require IKEv2 support on UTM. Tried XG and it does not do DKIM on email so it is a no go. Since it looks like this is not going to happen on UTM I will be changing firewall provider when my support is up.
Just plain stupid why this is not implemented.
We also require IKEv2 asap. On the cloud side we're working with Google Cloud Platform that requires IKEv2 for strong encryption.
Wann wird das denn mal was?
IKEv2 support is a standard that is available on any pertinent security platform makes me wonder if Sophos is pertinent?
We finally reached 10 years, congratulations!

Please add IKEv2. Is it any difficulties?
WTF - its open since 2011. The next box I guess will not be from sophos.
According to our Sophos contact, IKEv2 for UTM has been pulled from the roadmap. At this point faith in Sophos is gone and we will be planning an exit strategy. The worst part is that based on the abandonment of SG, we will be forced into an XG move in order to maintain compatibility before our support is up and we can move to a new vendor.

Back in the Astaro days, the UTM was a nice an innovative product.
But Sophos managed to mess it up.
Manpower has been put to such a nonsense thing like XG and now seems to be missing in development of UTM, .
Still no IKEv2 after all this time is a slap in the customers' faces.
UTM Version 9.601-5 ---------- IKE v2 support ??????
I see that UTM 9.6 has been released, but there is no indication that IKE v2 support was added. So... NOW what release is it expected to be in? Some of us have to make business decisions around such things.

I'm sad to see that IKEv2 was planned for 9.6 but now postponed to a later version or even removed from integration.
