The FreeS/WAN site was still up as of mid-2010, although the project shut down in 2003. It has full documentation for the software.

Two descendants are still available:

  • Strongswan, from a European team who added X.509 support to FreeS/WAN
  • Openswan, from a Canadian-based team that includes some of the original FreeS/WAN people

RFC 4322 Opportunistic Encryption using the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) was written by members of the FreeS/WAN team.

Several of the team members were from Ottawa and the Ottawa Citizen newspaper covered the project.
