A portable IKEv2 VPN implementation

This talk introduces the OpenIKED project, the latest portable subproject of OpenBSD. OpenIKED is a FREE implementation of the most advanced Internet security "Internet Key Exchange version 2 (IKEv2)" Virtual Private Network (VPN) protocol using the strongest security, authentication and encryption techniques.

The project was born in need of a modern Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) implementation for OpenBSD, but also for interoperability with the integrated IKEv2 client since Windows 7 and to provide a compliant solution for the US Government IPv6 (USGv6) standard. The project is still under active development; it was started by Reyk Floeter as "iked" for OpenBSD in 2010 but ported to other platforms including Linux, FreeBSD and NetBSD in late 2012 using the "OpenIKED" project name.
