Sooner than I thought!

Well, it looks like our friends on the OpenSolaris source team have been working more quickly than I thought. If you look at certain files (like the ESP source), they've been mysteriously fleshed-out. While crypto hasn't been sorted out, some other IPsec-specific files are now present in the tree!

Since crypto hasn't shown up yet, I guess we can't fully celebrate, but once it does, maybe Bill or I will have some more to say on the IPsec source.

COMING SOON: Full IPsec kernel code


Pardon my channelling of Jeff Spicoli, but Mike Kupfer is working on delivering the with-kernel-crypto build of OpenSolaris. This means that OpenSolaris users will have a working implementation of ESP at their fingertips. It also means Bill and I can (time permitting... uggh) give some more details and explanations about what's going on under the covers.

Watch this space for more!
