Package: cipe-source
Version: all 
Severity: critical
Justification: remote security hole

CIPE has many, many serious problems that require a complete overhaul
of the protocol to fix.

As it stands right now, anyone building VPNs using CIPE and trusting it
to insure encryption and integrity protection is putting themselves in
serious jeopardy.

Please check http://www.mit.edu:8008/bloom-picayune/crypto/14238 for the
gruesome facts.

This package should be removed from Debian until upstream overhauls the
protocol to something that actually works...
