Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Daniel Kahn Gillmor <dkg@fifthhorseman.net>

* Package name    : tcpcrypt
  Version         : 0.2

  Description     : opportunistically encrypt network transport

Tcpcrypt offers opportunistic security for TCP network traffic.  All
traffic between two tcpcrypt-enabled peers will be encrypted to
protect against passive monitoring.  tcpcrypt also exposes a strong
session identifier to tcpcrypt-aware clients, which can be used as a
hook for authentication.
