I'm planning to use the Intel's IPSec accelerator card on a Linux machine for enhancing the encryption/decryption rate and would like to know if this can be supported with strongswan.
If I understand correctly the strongswan creates the IPSec (ESP) sessions and we need to have a channel/mechanism(netlink or so?) to pass-on the session keys to this accelerator card so that it encrypt/decrypt the packets at line rate.

I'm referring to the following link of Intel for this.

Kindly guide us on this.

Best regards,
