Technical description for port 500:

The UDP Port 500 is specifically assigned to ISAKMP or Internet Security Association and Key Management Protocol. It is used for the sending and receiving of all implementations.
The ISAKMP makes the internet more secure by implementing security measures and mechanisms adaptable to the evolving online environment. These processes are both applied in public and private networks where secured communication is required. This is done by utilizing procedures for key generations, security mitigation, authentication, and creation of security associations.
The security associations implemented has all the information to allow the transmission of information or termination of data transfer when threats are considered.
The ISAKMP serves as the skeleton for the management of security associations. The separation of function of the ISAKMP allows interoperability of systems which require different levels of security. It also allows simple analysis which helps in further development of the protocol. The centralization of the process, on the other hand, decreases the chances of duplicate security processes.
