IPSEC_PF_KEY(5)                                                IPSEC_PF_KEY(5)

       ipsec_pf_key - lists PF_KEY sockets registered with KLIPS

       cat /proc(5,n)/net/pf_key(5,8)

       /proc(5,n)/net/pf_key(5,8)  is  a  read-only  file(1,n) which lists the presently open(2,3,n)
       PF_KEY sockets on the local system and their parameters.

       Each line lists one PF_KEY socket.  A table entry consists of:

       +  sock pointer (sock)

       +  PID of the socket(2,7,n) owner (pid)

       +  flag to indicate if(3,n) the socket(2,7,n) is dead (d)

       +  socket(2,7,n) wait queue(1,3) (sleep(1,3))

       +  socket(2,7,n) pointer (socket(2,7,n))

       +  next socket(2,7,n) in(1,8) chain (next)

       +  previous socket(2,7,n) in(1,8) chain (prev)

       +  last socket(2,7,n) error(8,n) (e)

       +  pointer to destruct routine (destruct)

       +  is this a reused socket(2,7,n) (r)

       +  has this socket(2,7,n) been zapped (z)

       +  socket(2,7,n) family to which this socket(2,7,n) belongs (fa)

       +  local port number (n)

       +  protocol version(1,3,5) number (p)

       +  Receive queue(1,3) bytes committed (r)

       +  Transmit queue(1,3) bytes committed (w)

       +  option memory allocations (o)

       +  size of send(2,n) buffer in(1,8) bytes (sndbf)

       +  timestamp in(1,8) seconds (stamp)

       +  socket(2,7,n) flags (Flags)

       +  socket(2,7,n) type (Type)

       +  connection state (St)

       c3b8c140 3553 0 c0599818 c05997fc 0 0 0 0 1 0 15 0 2 0 0 0 65535
       0.103232 00000000 00000003 01

       shows that there is one pf_key(5,8) socket(2,7,n)  set(7,n,1 builtins)  up  that  starts  at
       c3b8c140,  whose  owning process has PID 3553, the socket(2,7,n) is not
       dead, its wait queue(1,3) is at c0599818, whose owning socket(2,7,n)  is  at
       c05997fc,  with  no  other  sockets  in(1,8) the chain, no errors, no
       destructor, it is a reused socket(2,7,n) which  has  not  been  zapped,
       from  protocol family 15 (PF_KEY), local port number 0, protocol
       socket(2,7,n) version(1,3,5) 2, no memory allocated to  transmit,  receive  or
       option  queues,  a  send(2,n)  buffer  of almost 64kB, a timestamp of
       0.103232, no flags set(7,n,1 builtins), type 3, in(1,8) state 1.
