..first cat /etc/apt/sources.list |grep ^deb 
# your site is different, I run off my own mirrors. 
deb stable main non-free contrib
deb stable all  
# "all" for _everything_ in backports.
deb stable/non-US  main \
non-free contrib 
deb http://security.debian.org stable/updates main contrib non-free

..then apt-get update ;apt-cache search ipsec
kernel-patch-usagi - Another IPv6 implementation for Linux
shorewall-doc - Shoreline Firewall (Shorewall) Documentation
freeswan - IPSEC utilities for FreeSWan
freeswan-modules-source - IPSEC kernel modules source for FreeSWan
kernel-patch-freeswan - IPSEC kernel support for FreeSWan
shorewall - Shoreline Firewall (Shorewall)

..this is also relevant to backport'ers, so I cc.
