README of KAME kit KAME Project $Date: 2000/01/30 12:17:38 $ <<<Project Overview>>> "KAME Project" is a joint effort to create single solid software set, especially targeted at IPv6/IPsec. Talented researchers from Fujitsu Limited, Hitachi, Ltd., IIJ Research Laboratory, NEC Corporation, Toshiba Corporation, Yokogawa Digital Computer Corporation, Yokogawa Electric Corporation joined the project. This joint effort will avoid unnecessary duplicated development in the same area, and effectively provides high quality and advanced featured package. KAME is originally called "Hydrangea" which was developed by v6 working group, WIDE Project. We are merging codes, which each company in Japan has developed, into "Hydrangea". To identify the joint effort, we changed the name from "Hydrangea" to "KAME". KAME software has been merged into NetBSD-current. It will also be merged into BSD/OS, FreeBSD, and OpenBSD(IPv6 stuff only). "KAME" officially indicates a short word of <Ka>rigo<me> where our office locates. But it, in fact, stands for turtle in Japanese. <<<Our Goals>>> KAME Project aims to provide FREE reference implementations of (1) IPv6 (2) IPsec (3) advanced internetworking such as advanced packet queuing, ATM, mobility, and whatever interesting on several BSD variants. <<<Copyright>>> The kit comes with BSD-like copyright. In short, the code is FREELY available but with NO WARRANTY. Even commercial use is OK. Please refer to the COPYRIGHT file for more details. The copyright holder is WIDE Project instead of KAME Project. This is because KAME Project is to be terminated in March 2000 (extension of the project is being discussed. There is rough agreement to do it for two more years - stay tuned). READ CAREFULLY: Several countries have legal enforcement for export/import/use of cryptographic software. Check it before playing with the kit. <<<What's Next?>>> To know the difference from the previous stable release, please refer to CHANGELOG and RELNOTES. To install this kit, please read INSTALL at top directory, and INSTALL under operating system directory (for example, netbsd/INSTALL). If you want to know what features are provided, please refer to IMPLEMENTATION. Before you start using this kit, please take a look at USAGE. <<<Contact Points>> If you want to know more about KAME Project, please visit: http://www.kame.net/ You can get snapshots as well as stable releases. You are also able to send bug reports on this web page. We maintain users mailing list, called "snap-users". http://www.kame.net/snap-users/ has archive of postings, how to subscribe, and some other information.
