       I want to add the IPsec into our Linux product, I check your homepage. It says “Openswan is an IPsec implementation for Linux.” But otherwise, there is IPsec implemation in Linux kernal. What’s the relationship between openswan and Linux kernal IPsec.
       Is the Linux kernal implement the IPsce encapsulation, and openswan create some daemon to run the IPsec which provide by Linux kernal or openswan provide some tools to configure IPsec?
