Hello Emeric,

I had to switch to priority tasks, so I let this patch in standby
(long term standby ;-)). I'll try to find some time to add an option
in strongswan.conf.

> However, I still see the two CA certs using the "ipsec listcacerts" command. "ipsec purgecerts" does not seem to help.
> Remote peers successfully manage to authenticate using the removed CA cert, that is quite annoying.
> Any idea

Obviously additional clean up is desirable.

Best Regards,
