The Libreswan Project

libreswan logo

Libreswan is the new IPsec software forked from openswan 2.6.38 after a year long dispute regarding control and ownership of the name openswan.

This is where all the swan development now takes place, clearly visible when checking the git commit logs as graphed by github:

  1. Hi Paul,

    First of all, thanks for all the great work in Openswan project.
    I am not sure if this is the right medium to talk on this.

    I have worked on development of IKev2/IPSec stack and wanted to contribute, work and learn with openswan team, which is now forked into “Libreswan”

    Please point me to the required steps.

    Thanks in advance,
    Prashant Batra

  2. Problems installing LibreSwan 3.20-1 on Centos 6.
    I’ve installed the libreswan repo. “https://download.libreswan.org/binaries/rhel-libreswan.repo”

    running “yum install libreswan” gives me the following error:
    Package unbound-libs-1.4.20-23.el6.1.x86_64.rpm is not signed

    Please update this package.
