  Description     : create secure pipes between socket addresses

spiped (pronounced "ess-pipe-dee") is a utility for creating symmetrically
encrypted and authenticated pipes between socket addresses, so that one may
connect to one address (e.g., a UNIX socket on localhost) and transparently
have a connection established to another address (e.g., a UNIX socket on a
different system).  This is similar to 'ssh -L' functionality, but does not
use SSH and requires a pre-shared symmetric key.

spipe (pronounced "ess-pipe") is a utility which acts as an spiped protocol
client (i.e., connects to an spiped daemon), taking input from the standard
input and writing data read back to the standard output.
