Hi Anthony,

here is a ready-made strongSwan 5.9.3 docker image:


and here the Dockerfile with which it was built:


The Ubuntu 20.04 image used doesn't come equipped with systemd, so we
just start the charon daemon in the background. If you need additional
strongSwan plugins then just extend the ./configure command in the

   ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --disable-defaults      \
     --enable-charon --enable-ikev2 --enable-nonce --enable-random     \
     --enable-openssl --enable-pkcs1 --enable-pkcs8 --enable-pkcs12    \
     --enable-pem --enable-x509 --enable-pubkey --enable-constraints   \
     --enable-pki --enable-socket-default --enable-kernel-netlink      \
     --enable-eap-identity --enable-eap-md5 --enable-eap-dynamic       \
     --enable-eap-tls --enable-updown --enable-vici --enable-drbg      \
     --enable-swanctl --enable-silent-rules  && \

Best regards
