Thanks, Noel!

However, this would require to configure a connection for each
host-to-host pair, i.e. O(n²) connections for n authenticated hosts.

Wouldn't it be great if there were a simpler way, i.e. something like

left =
leftca = "C=DE, O=My Organisation, CN=My Certification Authority"
leftcert = my-cert.pem
right =
rightca = %same

in each station's ipsec.conf and with only my-cert.pem (and my-key.pem)
being station-specific?
