I have already searched on the net about doing this in linux and found out only Openswan. The only thing i'm confused is that whatever i read about Openswan is about creating a VPN (and my boss doesn't want to create a vpn for this).

Openswan is VPN software. If your boss doesnt want a vpn, don't use it.

I do not know if one can use TLS and X.509 certificates within the rdesktop protocol.
