Current Version: 2.2 (October 4, 2006) / 3.4 (October 26, 2009)

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.

Version 3.4 - the latest version for Mac OS X 10.3 or later - contains the following new functions:

  • Added connection warning and error indication to menu bar item icon
  • Added a traffic graph to the statistics window
  • Dashboard Widget is now installed automatically when IPSecuritas is first run
  • Visually vamped up Dashboard Widget
  • Updated User Manual
  • Added new HOWTO descriptions and updated others

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

These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
