IPSec - We've Got a Ways to Go (Part I)
[SP] IPSec, supposedly the next great thing that will fix most (if not all) our network security problems. No longer will attackers be able to sniff network traffic, hijack connections or spoof servers. Hijacking domain names will be impossible with DNSSEC, and redirecting people to fake Websites will be a thing of the past. Or will it? There are currently a lot of problems and shortcomings with IPSec that prevent the majority of network traffic from being encrypted.
