NetBSD-current IPsec (from KAME) now supports rijndael algorithm for
ESP encryption. rijndael is the finalist of AES contest, and
will be standardized in FIPS standard suite, to replace DES.
AES finalist was picked on Oct 2, the official algorithm number is
decided on Oct 3. NetBSD-current has working rijndael support since
Oct 3 (the foundation has been there waiting for algorithm number).
The implementation is known to be interoperable with others.
Also, it is possible to negotiate rijndael IPsec SA by using the
latest racoon IKE daemon (pkgsrc/security/racoon, be sure to get
