Thank you for the fast reply.
Can you clarify if I need to do something in openswan configuration files after I configure CentOS to load aesni_intel kernel module?

The aes module should be loaded at boot time using modules.conf as you can call it there , once the kernel has loaded it up you can use lsmod to check it's installed and why which point ipsec/openswan should have loaded afterwards. You might want to do some digging if you want to do something else but from what I'm familiar with centos/redhat my have updated the centos district so you probably want to do a yum update to refresh the repo for the bug fix if they have included it 😜👍

I just found that RedHat has fixed bug that openswan does not load the aesni_intel kernel module:
Therefore after the fix openswan should load the aesni_intel kernel module on Redhat 6.5 (and therefore on CentOS .5).
How should I configure openswan to load the aesni_intel kernel module?
Thank you in advance for your help and best regards,
