(usagi-users 03925) Re: A question about XFRM architecture and API
For what it is worth, there are some (very short but useful) explanation
in the include/net/xfrm.h file (in linux kernel source tree).
Hope this helps...

- I have a little question which and I hope somebody can help.
- I am trying to learn and understand what XFRM (which is used in
IPSec, for example ) API is about. Is there some reliable
document/RFC/link which explains in detail more about it ?
As I understand , XFRM is used by the USAGI project;
in OLS 2004 proceeding , I saw a lecture tilted:
"IPv6 IPsec and Mobile IPv6 implementation of Linux",
by Kazunori MIYAZAWA and Masahide NAKAMURA from USAGI Project."
It says there:
"XFRM architecture and stackable destination were introduced
into the kernel for IPsec packet processing
. They can be not only for IPsec
packet processing, but also general packet processing
such as MIPv6. USAGI Project decided
to expand the architecture to implement
I googled for it and did not find a detailed doc about XFRM architecture.
and stackable destination.
Any ideas ?
