Subject: cipe - encrypting IP tunnel, version 0.5.2


CIPE is a system for simple, yet reasonably secure IP encryption.
It sends encrypted datagrams encapsulated in UDP. It is not compatible
with IPSEC or anything else (except my other prototype implementation). 
Very lightweight and easy to handle. Comes with full description of
the protocol and usage examples.
GPLd and distributed from outside the USA.

Developed and tested on the Linux 2.0 series on i386 platform.
In theory it should run on other platforms; don't know about 2.1.

This package can be used to build "virtual private networks", i.e.
secure interconnection of subnetworks on top of the Internet. I use
it in such a situation for some months now.

Changes since 0.4.2:
- - Now supports routing over a SOCKS5 relayer.
- - Wrote a real manual.
