      Goal of this feature is to add support to 

      • telemetry
      • nmstate ipv6
      • nmstate net2net

      Why is this important?

      • without API, customers are forced to use MCO. this brings with it a set of limitations (mainly reboot per change and the fact that config is shared among each pool, can't do per node configuration)
      • better upgrade solution will give us the ability to support a single host based implementation
      • telemetry will give us more info on how widely is ipsec used.

      Acceptance Criteria

      • CI - MUST be running successfully with tests automated
      • Release Technical Enablement - Provide necessary release enablement details and documents.
      • Must allow for the possibility of offloading the IPsec encryption to a SmartNIC.


      • nmstate
      • k8s-nmstate
      • easier mechanism for cert injection (??)
      • telemetry
      • improve ci and test coverage

      Dependencies (internal and external)

      1.  nmstate tasks


      • ITUP-44 - OpenShift support for North-South OVN IPSec
      • HATSTRAT-33 - Encrypt All Traffic to/from Cluster (aka IPSec as a Service)

      Previous Work (Optional):

      1. SDN-717 - Support IPSEC on ovn-kubernetes
      2. SDN-3604 - Fully supported non-GA N-S IPSec implementation using machine config.
