some time ago I did performance measurements for IPsec throughput and 
also read some doc about the CPU limits for encrypted throughput.

But this was some time ago.

Does anyone know recent performance figures for strongswan on standard 

What about a throughput that exceeds 1 Gbit/s.
Is that possible?

Is hardware offload in network cards possible? I read some doc from Oracle.

Thanks for any hints.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
