IP Security, or IPSec for short, is a series of protocols that enable computers to support a secure exchange of data. IPsec can be used for Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). VaporSec itself enables Mac OS X 10.2 users to create VPNs between two Jaguar-equipped Macs or between a Jaguar-equipped Mac and a third-party firewall, using a graphical front end.
New in this release is support for “main mode,” which adds compatibility with more firewalls and other IPSec devices, according to the developers. It also remembers your policies between launches and can recreate an IPSec connection on boot, or when changing network locations. The interface has been reworked and improved as well.
VaporSec is offered for free, and the developers will release its source code once VaporSec goes final.
