the latest 4.2.6 release offers you full integration of strongSwan
into the VPN connections menu of NetworkManager 0.7 by means of the
new dbus-based nm plugin. For the time being only EAP_GTC based
authentication on the user side and certificate-based authentication
on the server side is supported. For installation and configuration
details please read our HOWTO:


Many EAP_AKA or EAP_SIM implementations use a separate EAP identity
besides the IKEv2 peer identities. With the introduction of the
"eap_identity=" parameter this mechanism is now also supported by
strongSwan. For details we refer to the following sample scenario:


As you might have noticed, the "ipsec statusall" command now returns
additional information on required certification authorities (CAs)
and EAP identities.

Kind regards
