Decrypting of the ISKAMP packet results in expert info/malformed Packet. When we are decrypting the ISKAMP Packet in wireshark it results in a MALFORMED Packet. Can anyone please help me with this.

Regards, Sharad

I'd suggest you open a bug report, including a sample capture complete with any keys necessary to decrypt it so someone with some free time can take a look.

During my tests (see this answer) I had some MALFORMED packets too.

After I restarted Wireshark, the MALFORMED packets were gone. So, it looks like a bug for me. As @JeffMorriss said, please file a bug report with sample data. Actually, you can use my sample data from this answer.
