ESP encryption algorithms -- the next generation
Hopefully people will discuss what encryption algorithms they wish to
deploy in a multi-vendor interoperably environment. At a minimum it seems
technically sound to do something more than just DES. It will be
interesting to see what becomes common in the future.
