Mac OS X includes everything you need to secure your communications using IPSec. Unfortunately, it's not as easy to use as it should be. IPSecuritas is a handy piece of freeware that lets you easily setup IPSec VPN connections to another host or network over the Internet, securing your data with encryption and authentication. IPSecuritas adds a graphical front-end to the built-in IPSec core, allowing you to setup secure communications within minutes. IPSecuritas interoperates with a large and daily growing number of VPN devices, including devices from popular manufacturers such as Cisco, Zyxel, Netgear and more.

IPSecuritas 2.2 remains available for Mac OS X 10.2 or higher.
