Description

The current implementation of credentials lacks extensibility and is not flexible enough.

A new framework should provide:
  • Additional credential sources (not only ipsec.secrets/ipsec.d*)
  • Generic handling of private keys, public keys, secrets and credentials (not only x509)
To allow proper and modular implementation of:
  • Database credential backend (used for Manager)
  • Smartcard support
  • Other crypto systems (ECDSA, ...)
  • Other certificate systems (PGP)
