Well, exploration can be free.  I noticed that Strongswan uses a plug-in
architecture for crypto that seemingly allows the use of OpenSSL instead of
the kernel for crypto operations, for use under FIPS.  Does anyone have an
idea of the order of magnitude in performance loss this could be for IPSec,
to use crypto from OpenSSL instead of the kernel ?
