Hi all,

I have a question about entries of SPD, SA database.

In my understanding, when Openswan starts, it will read the ipsec.conf to
find the IPSEC interesting traffic then record them in SPD database. Beside,
it also records two VPN endpoints in SA database (SADB) after finishing the
VPN establishment.

So, if one of two above endpoints is shutdown, the SA entries of this VPN
connection in SADB still exist, or will be deleted ?
