Does anyone have a good picture of how IPSec works btw? Isn't that encryption on a level (IP) that makes it totally transparent for socket implementations? Or is it that it's not supported by all hardware out there, such as routers? It seems too good not to have in mind at this state.
IPSec is a) at the IP level, which means OS or IP stack, b) a huge and complicated standard and c) doesn't work well with NAT. Not something you want to mess with here. SSL and TLS seem like the best alternatives. /fnord
