Hello Michael,

thanks for your comments.

Yes. This is true for IPsec as well... Patch is in my pipeline...

As far as I am concerned, there is little "strong" cryptography left indeed.
It's basically only TLS >= 1.2 with AEAD (e.g. GCM) ciphers and Forward Secrecy.

Speaking about RFC 8446, this is more or less what survived discussions before
standardizing TLS 1.3 ... :-)
