My fast_ipsec related work

What is it ?

The IPSEC protocol is a set of protocols standardized by the IETF for secure communications of IP Datagrams.

The first implementation available for NetBSD is the Kame implementation. This implementation is good but lacks some important features e.g it isn't possible to use crypto accelerated hardware.

The Fast IPSec implementation is a new implementation of Ipsec, written by Samuel Leffler and Stone. This stack has been written in order to use efficiently crypto hardware. This stack has first been written for FreeBSD, and then ported to NetBSD. The most important caveat of Fast IPsec was the lack of support for IPv6.
