Ok, right. I don't know much about IPSec itself so some study on the
matter would be necessary to provide some better understanding however
from what I know the implementation to the Linux kernel directly is
possible for the software stack however implementing this in the virtual
hardware stack (emulation) is certainly a good thing since you don't
need to patch the kernel at all. The only thing I'm not sure about is
the technical point of view since I don't know how hard would the
implementation be.

No problem since I think the idea is good and therefore I support the
idea at least :)

Have a great time,
