Submission + - Allegations regarding OpenBSD IPSEC

B'Trey writes: Theo de Raadt, of OpenBSD fame, has posted an email which claims the FBI paid open source developers to implant back doors into the OpenBSD IPSEC stack. The email also alleges that these back doors are the reason that government is promoting OpenBSD for use in VPNs and firewalls. Theo is calling for an audit of the code involved.
