We did not choose DES. DES is simply one of the possible transforms
you can use. For simplicity we defined a DES transform first, but
there is no notion that DES is what you should be using in IPSec. The
IPSec system permits you to plug any encryption system you like
in. Please learn more about it before commenting.
