 The Future of the Linux Kernel

Linux Magazine talks about the future of the Linux kernel.

"One very late addition to the kernel was a new cryptographic API that supports a number of encryption and hashing algorithms. This marks the first time that cryptographic code has been integrated into the standard kernel (one can only hope that the legal environment remains friendly enough that the crypto capability can stay there). The first use for the new API is to support a brand-new IPSEC implementation."
