Hi Yaron,

You can define a connection with rightid=%any or use a wildcard
identity. For a responder configuration, using right=%any allows you to
accept any initiator that has a valid certificate.

Initiating a transport mode SA without an explicit configuration, at
least on the initiator, is not possible. We could dynamically create a
configuration based on a triggering packet, but we currently don't
support such a feature.

I've never used it, don't know if it still works. Charon does not know
that keyword.
