	Title           : C-Bindings for IPsec Application Programming Interfaces

IPsec based security is usually transparent for applications and they
have no standard APIs for gathering information on connection
security properties.  This document specifies an API that increases
the visibility of IPsec to applications.  The API allows applications
to allow BTNS extensions, control the channel bindings, and control
also other security properties related to IPsec.  This document
presents C-bindings to the abstract BTNS API.
