I have been asked by my company to determine what, if anything, effects 
the NIST 800-131a specification has on the strongSwan software. I looked 
on the strongSwan website, but was unable to find anything specific on the 
topic, but I did find that the crypto back end is based on libgcrypt. 
Assuming my Linux version has the right level of libgcrypt, does this mean 
that just by specifying the required encryption algorithms with the 
appropriate key lengths for connections, my system (currently 4.6.1) will 
be compliant with the NIST standard? Thank you for your help.
