  • Multiple profiles with different sets of connections can be defined to easily change settings depending on your location.

  • DNS servers can be configured for each connection and domain (instead of the global DNS replacements in earlier releases).
  • Experimental support for IPv6 - mainly untested.

  • PKCS#12, DER encoded and password protected PEM encoded certificates and private keys can be imported - export into PKCS#12, DER and PEM encoded files.

  • Better handling of certificates, more information on connection status, display of configuration problems, better log display, log export
  • All kernel API now done without external helpers, network/configuration changes will now automatically restart the connections without user interaction, keep-alive pings to keep connections up and automatic restart of failed connections.
  • Autostart does not yet work
  • Import of an exported connection by double-click does not work
  • Minor GUI display problems under 10.3 (e.g. log window severity)

IPSecuritas lets you easily setup IPSec VPN connections to another host or network over the Internet, while securing your data by encryption and authentication. This way, you can easily and cheaply access your office network from any point of this world, always knowing your communication is safe and protected from others.

The Internet introduced a new way to work, allowing fast access from anywhere. Unfortunately, safety is at low standards and data transferred through the Internet is easily accessible for eavesdroppers and forgers. IPSec has been developed to close this gap. It adds the following functions to protect your data:

Encryption

Cipheres your data using strong state-of-the-art algorithms, making it impossible to read your data for everybody but you

Authenticaton

Digitally signs your information, assuring the identity of the sender
