This paper gives an overview of IPSec until present day. It includes the purpose with the IPSec, how IPSec is designed, the results of implementation of IPSec until present day and its consequences, how it will look like in future in the IPv6, Windows NT 5.0. It also includes some issues that remain to be work with in the future.
This paper also presents some results and difficulties in choosing IPSec implementation depending on ones requirements.
The IPSec is a hot issue now and in fast growing branches, i.e., electronic trade, it is very important to come out on the market quick with the right products. Since there are many companies that had come out on the market with implementations of IPSec, the interoperability is not clear.
In Europe is difficult to get an IPSec implementation with a strong encryption, at least if you are not a bank, because of the US and other countries government strong encryption export policy. Having this as background some companies, in Europe, that wants to buy software that has IPSec implementation have not much to choose.
