"For Kernel's 2.6.0 and higher, Openswan uses the built in IPsec support.
Only the userland component of Openswan is required to use Openswan with a
2.6 series kernel. 
Note: you will need setkey from the ipsec-tools package, available from
(From http://www.openswan.org/code/openswan-2.1.0rc1.tar.gz's README)

The way I read it is that the userland part of Openswan works fine with 2.6,
it's just that with a 2.6 kernel its IPSec kernel part is used rather than
an Openswan or FreeS/WAN one as was the case with 2.4 (which didn't have an
IPSec kernel part by default).

Those who are willing to trade their liberty for security deserve neither.
