SubjectRe: CIPE - Encrypted IP Encapsulation
This is true, however a cipe like patch could be available and kept fairly
upto-date, where as cipe has much potential but no one working on it, and
it does not _easily_ intigrate with the kernel, as in the source.
Currently there are many different approaches to encrypted ip tunneling,
two noteable ones are skey and cipe. I was just pointing out that this is
a widely liked idea, and hell, solaris has it, why shouldn't we?
